Being and Becoming is a wide-ranging analysis of thenature o  and selfhood. The book presents an original,integrated paradigm with the aim of creating a comprehensiveoverview of the human condition—and finding ways to alleviatesuffering. In essence, the book explores the question, “What doesit mean to be?”

Being and Becoming begins with fresh interpretations of thework of Martin Heidegger and Buddhist, Taoist, and Christianwritings as they relate to this question. Most of Being andBecoming, however, is about the nature of self and selfhood asa process of “I-am-this,” “my becoming” rather than “my being.”Author Franklyn Sills interweaves concepts from object relationstheories, psychodynamics, pre- and perinatal psychology, andBuddhist self-psychology, along with his own rich experience as aBuddhist monk, somatic therapist, and psychotherapist, into hisinquiry. The works of Fairbairn and Winnicott are discussed indepth, as are Winnicott and Stern’s insights into the nature of theearly holding environment, the infant-mother relational field, andearly perceptual dynamics. A thoughtful guide for psychologists,therapists, counselors, and other health professionals, the book isalso ideal for Buddhists and anyone looking for alternative therapymodels.
