The literature of the spiritual traditions, especially Buddhism, can be of enormous help in understanding the concept of well-being and in developing practices that enhance it. Because it presupposes no technical knowledge of either the spiritual traditions or psychology, this collection of essays by psychologists will be of interest to anyone concerned with their own and others well-being. It shows how spiritual ideas are echoed in the theories and techniques of contemporary psychology and psychotherapy, and discusses some of the important issues and questions concerning the use of spiritual traditions in working with distressed people in a variety of settings."
