11.16 readings

This week are reading "Psychotherapy and Religion in Japan: The Japanese Introspection Practice of Naikan," by Chikako Oxawa-de Silva.


*Read introduction

*Start with the conclusion of chapter 2 - you may want to go back and home in on the comparisons with psychoanalysis, Catholic confession, and Foucault in that chapter

* Read chapter 3 for its "confessions"

See how far you can get - we will read more for Thursday too, but this is the bulk of it - check out Thursday reading list to plan.
NOTE: if at any point you feel bogged down, move on to reading the confessions in chapter 3 - getting the stories might help you be able to digest the framework the author provides.
