From the Publisher"Modern Psychology and Ancient Wisdom, 2nd ed, recasts the world's wisdom traditions in frames that restore social, ecological and gender balance. This work is as salient as it is timely; a clarion call to bind oneself with the crimson thread of empathy that unites all seekers of transcendence. I urge believers and nonbelievers alike to drink from this deep well of spiritual wisdom. I know I will be returning to it for years to come."
—Andrew Gurevich, professor of world literature and world religions in Portland, Oregon
"Modern Psychology and Ancient Wisdom, 2nd ed, offers a unique exploration of ancient healing techniques and their application to modern counseling and therapy professions. This compilation informs the contemporary dialogue about psychotherapy while also rehabilitating the image of incorporating the wisdom traditions into practice. It reflects the significant work in the integration of spirituality and psychology of which all practitioners of healing and consciousness should be aware."
—Hope Umansky, PhD, dean at the California Institute for Human Science
"This important book pairs holistic practices of psychospiritual healing with the living truths and practices that inform the world’s great religious traditions. Both religion and psychology are strengthened by this synthesis."
—Craig Chalquist, PhD, chair of the department of East-West Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies
"There is a growing awareness in the world of psychotherapy that spirituality is an integral part of the healing process. This wonderful sourcebook reminds us that the world's religious and spiritual traditions offer practices and perspectives that can support the development of the whole person on the therapeutic journey. Practitioners as well as individuals on their own journeys will benefit from the resources for psychospiritual exploration offered in this book, and readers will discover a deeper understanding of the synergy between the process of psychological growth and the realm of spiritual insight and awakening, as reflected in the diverse approaches presented."
