More About This Book

Overview

Alchemy of the Soul depicts the ever-widening circle of an evolutionary psychology which views the soul rather than the ego as the epi-center of human experience. The reader can observe this experience directly. Within the context of the author's therapeutic practice, trauma converges with the transpersonal.

The force that propels this work and redefines the boundaries of depth psychology is the Integral Psychology of the great mystic/philosopher, Sri Aurobindo. This ever-widening, yet clearly defined psycho-spiritual realm incorporates the fullness of the human psyche without ignoring the occult or cosmic. Beyond the theoretical, this book opens the office door as client and clinician experience the soul's alchemy.

Endorsements

"The body-mind-soul interface is the frontier of much significant exploration today. Its impact on psychology and spirituality is facilitating the discovery of our true Selves. While transpersonal psychologists delve ever deeper into the soul, Sri Aurobindo guides the soul on its return journey through manifestation. Influenced by the soul psychology of Sri Aurobindo and his consort, the Mother, Arya Maloney began his unique approach to transpersonal psychology. With guides like Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, the door to awakening opens. Bridging the juncture between spirituality and psychology, Arya reveals the alchemy of the soul." Lama Surya das

"Arya Maloney updates the basis and practice of transpersonal psychology by using the spiritual principles of India's masters and the transformational alchemy inherent in his clients' processes. His work is both enlightening and informative." Arnold Mindell

"Maloney has contributed significantly to the field of transpersonal psychology by updating and enlarging its scope for the twenty-first century. He has included both the concrete spiritual dimension beyond intellect and the physical body. He reports clear and real experiences of his transformative work through the body that goes beyond the confines of traditional psychology into the supernormal. He tells of past lives, the soul leaving the body and other awarenesses outside concensus reality. His references to the Integral Yoga of Aurobindo are expertly selected. They show an informed, and practiced, understanding of that great Indian saint's extensive exploration into the realm of the transpersonal. His work, says Maloney, in 'recognizing the impotence of ego, ... offers modern psychology the power of the soul, the subliminal and the superconscious.' I recommend Maloney's book to anyone seeking an understanding of the whole person, beyond the confines perscribed by traditional psychology." Aminah Raheem, author of Soul Lightning: Awakening Soul Consciousness
