A Transpersonal Perspective

Authors: Barbara Somers with Ian Gordon-Brown

Series Editor: Hazel Marshall

This book is fundamental to an understanding of Transpersonal psychology, the flowering of a unique British school. It is for every psychotherapist who acknowledges the spiritual dimension. It will give hope for the soul in a materialistic world, point a way to bring the heart to health, inspire the reader and evoke wholeness and trust in life.

It is a book that comes from the source. Barbara Somers and Ian Gordon-Brown spoke its words and drew thousands. The book, based on original tapes, and richly illustrated by Frances Crawford and Ian Thorp, gives the essence of seminars the authors gave at their Centre for Transpersonal Psychology in London to counsellors and psychotherapists in training.

Offering a Transpersonal view, it will appeal to those training in any discipline related to counselling, psychotherapy, healing of the soul, as well as to people who have been practising for many years in these and related fields. It is not only for professionals but also for a wider audience: for all caring and interested individuals who are searching inwardly.
