Embracing Emptiness

"Often in psychotherapy, symptoms contain a hint of the cure...In Buddhism, there is a similar understanding...if we feel empty, taught the Buddha, we must not let that emptiness paralyze us. If we are reaching for intimacy, we must let ourselves get out of the way. If we want peace, we must furst learn how to quiet our own minds. If we want release, we must learn how to cease our own craving."
Mark Epstein, M.D.


Emptiness is a word that inspires a myriad of images and preconceptions. Our society often thinks of emptiness as a fearsome place; vacant and void. However, many Eastern religions find it to be a place of the most fertile soil and challenge this entirely Western view of what emptiness really means on a spiritual level. On "Embracing Emptiness," Sheri Meyers Gantman explores this issue with renowned author, psychiatrist and devout Buddhist, Dr. Mark Epstein. Together they discuss such questions as:


What is the value of emptiness?

How can we not be so afraid of it?

Why is it integral in building a stronger spiritual connection?

Why has this important truth been forgotten in our Western culture?
What simple practices can a person do to begin to experience for themselves the Buddhist perspective on wholeness?






Learn to transform the fear of emptiness into the exhilaration of self-liberation!

Mark Epstein, M.D. is a psychiatrist in private practice in New York. He is the author of "Going to Pieces Without Falling Apart","Thoughts Without a Thinker" and "Going on Being:Buddhism and the Way of Change"

Dr. Epstein is a master at weaving together the accumulated wisdom of his two worlds; Buddhism and Western psychotherapy. Both in his books and on our program, he shows how "the happiness we seek depends on our ability to balance the ego’s needs to do with our inherent longing to be.
