From the Publisher"From the Simpkins' lifelong collaborative study of both Zen and the nuts and bolts of hypnotherapy, they synthesize the latest scientific findings--about connection, mirror neurons, attachment theory, for example--with the most ancient of meditation forms. Zen tales, and their own poems and case studies offer a treasure trove of accessible techniques we can bring into our fast paced therapies. Their approach respects the uniqueness of each client and situation, coaxing them, breath, mind and heart, to explore uncharted capacities to feel, to heal, to relate, and to be present in this moment."

"Finally, a book that not only gives us the latest scientific evidence about the benefits of meditation for clinician and clients, but details specific and practical ways to bring the meditation process to bear on the common problems brought to therapy. The Simpkins have written an accessible book on applying Zen methods of focus and insight in therapy, sprinkled with stories to engage, illuminate and inspire."

"Meditation and Yoga in Psychotherapy is good reader-friendly book for both people new to these concepts as well as the seasoned meditator, yogi or yogini who wants to deepen their knowledge and practice with clients. The Simpkins are at their best in describing how everyone can learn to integrate their own brain, body, and mind to facilitate a creative synchrony of healing and well being."
