How is it that some patients recover in a single therapy session? After decades of daily panic attacks, leave their first session and never have a panic attack again? And how is that other patients work diligently week after week, month after month, perhaps year after year, to make this same change?
In this post I look at what Buddhism has to say about this difference. I share the words of a current patient which shed essential light on this important question. And, finally, tell the story of The Rainmaker, a parable about human transformation.
