In The Healthy Mind, Dr. Henry M. Vyner presents the findings of twenty-seven years of research spent interviewing Tibetan lamas about their experiences of the mind. The interviews have generated a science of stream of consciousness that demonstrates that the healthy human mind is the egoless mind, given the paradox that the egoless mind has an ego. Vyner presents this science and also shows his readers how to cultivate a healthy mind. The Healthy Mind features extensive interview excerpts, theoretical maps of the egoless and egocentric mind, discussions of the history of science, and thought experiments that unpack the implications of his findings. This is a useful book for all those interested in the dialogue between Buddhism and psychology and in understanding the nature of the healthy mind.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"In this impressive work, Dr. Vyner aims to construct and demonstrate a science of the stream of consciousness. From this, he argues for his conclusion that an egoless mind defines a healthy mind, that this healthy mind can be cultivated and taught, and that doing so offers hope for a humanity in the grip of destructive forces."

-Jay A. Phillips, MD, training and supervising analyst at the Washington-Baltimore Center for Psychoanalysis and clinical assistant professor of psychiatry at the University of Maryland School of Medicine
