Description
 
Ron Leifer, M.D., is a psychiatrist with more than forty-five years' experience in the practice of psychotherapy. He became a Buddhist practitioner in 1980 when he became a student of Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche.

Our desires and our fears are woven into a tangled web of conflicts. We want both to eat dessert and to be thin. We want money but dont want to work. Anything that threatens our sense of self and its striving for happiness is perceived as a threat to our very lives the response to which is defensiveness, anger, aggression, and violence. Vinegar into Honey proposes a new paradigm for understanding the relationship between stress, anxiety, anger, and depression. Leifer provides detailed instructions for working with anger and other painful emotions.

The process of transforming suffering into equanimity and compassion is central in Buddhist psychology and practice. Each of the steps in Vinegar into Honey reflects views and methods drawn from Buddhist tradition. Leifers work holds promise for psychotherapists and their patients, individuals seeking to understand and work with their anger, and people interested in the interface of Buddhism and psychotherapy.
