Lessons from a great yoga master and an eminent psychoanalyst that explore what psychotherapy and yoga philosophy have in common
In "Freud and Yoga," the great yoga master T.K.V. Desikachar and the eminent psychoanalyst Hellfried Krusche examine forty classic sayings, or "sutras," from the vantage point of their respective disciplines. Through clear, candid conversations that draw on long experience and are illustrated by case studies from the clinic and the "shala," these two experts explain the concepts, terms, forces, and processes in their traditions.
Therapists and patients, yoga adepts and professionals, and readers interested in psychology and spirituality will find this unique investigation fascinating, enriching, and useful. In a time when Western and Eastern modalities have ever more to offer each other, "Freud and Yoga" is a watershed work one that draws us closer to understanding our own nature and the deep workings of the human psyche."
