More Description

From an intriguing description of an encounter between Carl Jung and a Buddhist monk in the early 1930's (an early confrontation of Eastern Wisdom teaching and Western Psychology), to a discussion of how Jung's theory of the Transcendent Function may explain a surprising connection between the Christian experience of being "saved" to the Great Doubt and shattering breakthrough of Ch'an Buddhism, "The Bare Bones of the Buddha's Teaching" guides the reader through the Buddha's Eightfold Path using the lens of a former church musician from Tennessee, a Broadway pianist and yoga teacher in New York City, a Jungian psychotherapist in California, and guiding teacher of Long Beach Meditation: author Dr. Victor Byrd. "The Bare Bones" reviews the classical Buddhist teaching from a thoroughly Western perspective, but the message is the same as the one given by the Buddha twenty-fie hundred years ago: We can be free from suffering in this very life.
