The Resilient Spirit: A Buddhist Approach to Jung’s Psychology
By introducing the Buddhist concept of “dukkha” (literally, being off-center like a wheel riding off its axle) in comparison with Jung’s concept of neurosis, this presentation shows how our suffering arises in our own attitudes, intentions, and actions. By seeing the roots of our suffering, we develop self-awareness and self-knowledge. Recognizing and taking responsibility for how we make ourselves and others suffer, we develop compassion: literally, a “suffering with” others.
