Japanese Zen Buddhism
Buddhism first came to the West many centuries ago through the Greeks, who also influenced some of the culture and practices of Indian Buddhism. As Buddhism has spread beyond India it has always been affected by the indigenous traditions of its new homes. When Buddhism appeared in America and Europe in the 1950’s and 1960’s it encountered contemporary psychology and psychotherapy, rather than religious traditions. Since the 1990’s many efforts have been made by Westerners to analyse and integrate the similarities and differences between Buddhism and its therapeutic ancestors, particularly Jungian psyhology.
Taking Japanese Zen Buddhism as its starting point, this volume is a collection of critiques, commentaries, and histories about a particular meeting of Buddhism and psychology. It is based on the Zen Buddhism and Psychotherapy conference that took place in Kyoto, Japan, in 1999.
