Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book you have before you . . . tells the stories of eight women who were able to transmute emotional pain into life energy through a hybrid of Western psychotherapy potentiated with Buddhist mindfulness exercises. By reading their stories you will get a tangible sense of what it means to literally escape into pain, as opposed to escaping from it--a truly remarkable notion." (Shinzen Young, author of Break Through Difficult Emotions: How to Transform Painful Feelings With Mi)

"Barbara Fishman's blend of Eastern and Western wisdom is masterful." (Daniel Gottlieb, Ph.D., family therapist, radio host, and newspaper columnist)

"A practical and inspiring book. Barbara Fishman writes clearly and forcefully about how mindfulness practice assists in the process of psychological transformation through psychotherapy. Psychotherapists and their clients will benefit greatly from reading Fishman and following her well-informed advice." (Polly Young-Eisendrath, Ph.D., Jungian analyst and author of The Resilient Spirit)

By integrating her professional work as a psychotherapist with her personal practice of Buddhist mindfulness meditation, Barbara Miller Fishman offers women a new therapeutic approach to healing deep emotional pain--the discipline of Mindfulness Psychotherapy--a combination of six awareness practices that, taken together, create a powerful path toward healing. In the Buddhist tradition of the teaching tale, she presents eight vivid stories of women who use Mindfulness Psychotherapy to overcome serious trauma. Each story is accompanied by a discussion of how Mindfulness Psychotherapy helped the women attain greater levels of peace and well-being, followed by an actual step-by-step meditation that readers can use when faced with similar difficulties.

BARBARA MILLER FISHMAN, PH.D., is a therapist who offers workshops and seminars in Mindfulness Psychotherapy as it can be used for individuals and couples. She has practiced mindfulness meditation for over fifteen years. Coauthor of Resonance: The New Chemistry of Love, she lives in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania.

Format: Paperback
First, despite what the editors put on the front cover, this book is NOT just for women. Anyone with emotional problems -- woman, man, or whatever -- can help her/himself with this book. The individual stories are both intriguing and powerful, and the cd makes meditation easy. I recommend this book for anyone who wants to achieve greater equanimity and decrease the stress in his/her life. And it's fun to read, too.

In Emotional Healing, Barbara draws a sensitive and thoughtful portait of some women in crisis. She has added the skill of using meditation to her already quite accomplished therapy skills. I was particularly struck how, in the midst of chaos, the simplicity of breathing, calming and getting in touch with oneself can be a tremendous help to the confused aspects of a person's life. It appears to shift the focus so that the puzzle takes on a different look. Barbara is respecful and loving of her subjects. The book is lovely for any psychotherapist to read, or for that matter, anyone.

Mindfulness heals. This extraordinary quality of direct presence is filled with compassion and space, and it transforms everything that it touches. This is a great read by a very gifted teacher.
If you wish to learn more about mindfulness meditation therapy, you might like to read the following the I also recommend 'The Path of Mindfulness Meditation', available through Amazon.
