The "Quiet Therapies" are a group of five Buddhist-based psychotherapies from Japan, so named by the author because they all require the client to spend time in some form of isolated introspection. To call them "psychotherapies" in the Western sense of that term, however, is somewhat misleading, since the purpose of these procedures is not to cure or ameliorate symptoms but rather to inculcate an uncomplaining acceptance so that a family and social contribution can be made by the sufferer in spite of symptomatic disability.
