That’s part of a notion from Barry Magid’s new book about Zen (and to a lesser degree psychoanalysis) — that psychoanalysts are like the Amish of psychotherapists. It seems like such an apt comparison. They work in ways that others find odd and antiquated. They are a small and insular community. They persist.
I’ve put off writing about both psychoanalysis and mindfulness for some time, but both topics should be on the horizon.
