is a Japanese therapy which emphasizes the importance of self-reflection on- what the client has received from others, how the clients actions may have hurt others and what the client has returned to others. This process is conducted with a professional therapist. It was first proposed by Japanese Buddhist Yoshimoto Ishin (1916 - 1988).
