OTANI, University of Maryland Counselling Center, USA,, describes a new synthesis between Eastern meditation techniques and hypnosis. Abstract: The major ancient Buddhist meditation techniques samatha, vipassana, Zen, and ton-len are described with reference to contemporary clinical hypnosis. The healing framework out of which they emerged is examined in comparison with and in contrast to its Western counterpart. A growing body of literature shows that meditation and hypnosis have many similarities despite the differing underlying philosophy and methodology. Although not every meditation technique fits the Western culture, each has much to offer to clinicians who are familiar with hypnosis.
