For over a hundred years, psychology has looked for ways to heal individual souls. Now the being in need is the world. All the organizing forms that ought to enrich life with beauty, purpose and depth no longer do so. To heal ourselves we need to reimagine the world.

Beginning with the myth of the Soul of the World, Sophia, Sardello evokes a sense of the world filled with her presence. He suggests that the soul's primary parts-its arts of concentration, meditation, imagination, contemplation-do not belong to individual consciousness, but constitute a surrender of our subjective, personal states to the consciousness that is the soul of the world. He shows how, if we practice these arts, we can approach daily life in a new way. The author builds a psychology of the world-of architecture, money, the city, medicine, food and technology.

Author Biography:Robert Sardello, Ph.D. has been a practicing psychotherapist for over twenty years, working in existential, Jungian and archetypal psychologies. He is cofounder of the Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture and of the School of Spiritual Psychology, and a faculty member of the Chalice of Repose Project in Missoula, Montana. He is the author of Love and the World: A Guide to Conscious Practice and Freeing the Soul from Fear.

Editorial Reviews

James Hillman
Whatever Sardello touches breaks open with startling new meaning.
Larry Dossey
This book is a classic. Robert Sardello is one of the few modern thinkers who genuinely sense how to deal with the barrenness of modern life. Not only is this work about the soul, it also is for the soul. Facing the World with Soul is recommended for anyone suffering from the spiritual emptiness of our time.
Randolph Severson
Robert Sardello is a legend. Here in this book is the genius of the man-the subtle thought, the wry wit, the spiritual depth, the astounding insights. There is simply no better guide to the healing of our times.
