Medicine Buddha/Medicine Mind Cont'd Chapter Four



In this chapter details of the Medicine Buddha visualization are carefully parsed for their relationship to Western neuroscience. We wonder what Barbie Dolls have to teach us about the maps of our bodies carried in our brains; we contemplate the Trap of the Past and how identity leads to increasing pain. We finish our series of chapters from Medicine Buddha/Medicine Mind with a description of how Time sometimes folds in upon itself and how this was the case with Norman Doidge's book "The Brain's Way of Healing" and my friendship with David Webber—how healing on many levels takes place.
