Overview

"If there is hope for one like me, who thought that he was beyond all help, and who believed he had more guilt, more shame, and a greater feeling of inadequacy than anyone else in the world, then rest assured that there is hope for you."

Millions of men and women have had their lives transformed by Dr. Gerald Jampolsky's pioneering work in the field of attitudinal healing and by his bestselling books Love Is Letting Go of Fear, Goodbye to Guilt, and Teach Only Love. Now in his most important book to date, this bestselling author and noted psychiatrist tells his own deeply moving story of inner struggle and personal transformation.

Out of Darkness Into the Light is the compelling account of Dr. Jampolsky's journey from severe depression, guilt, and alcoholism to a true healing of the mind and spirit, and his discovery of the tranformative power of love and giving. As we share the story of his passage from sorrow to joy, Dr. Jampolsky sheds new light on the path to personal happiness, on letting go of fear and guilt, and on escaping the "Fifty Ego Defenses" that keep us in darkness. Here is a book of advice and inspiration from a man who has been there and back - a road map to guide you to a life of peace, fulfillment, and lasting hapiness.

Known for his extensive pioneering in the field of attitudinal healing, Dr. Jampolsky now shares his journey from severe depression, guilt and near alcoholism to a true "miracle": an inner healing and infusion of life that was truly against the odds.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Combining the feel-good vibes of a self-help manual with the self-castigating fervor of a born-again believer's confessional, this seemingly candid spiritual autobiography smacks of bland impersonality despite its stance of ruthless honesty. A psychiatrist and author of Love Is Letting Go of Fear , Jampolsky tells how he learned to go beyond his selfish, manipulative ego and surrender to love and God. A friend's sudden death, his own bitter divorce and drift toward alcoholism, an encounter with Mother Teresa and his work with AIDS patients were milestones on his quest. His familiar message, reinforced through prose poems and prayers, involves listening to one's inner voice, recognizing the holiness in each person, transforming romantic relationships into ``holy relationships'' and letting go of fearful, negative attitudes.

Library Journal
In this quasi-spiritual autobiography, Jampolsky shares childhood memories and his experiences in medical school, residen correction: The title of Margaret O'Connor and Jane Silverman's The Singles Solution ( LJ 2/15), published by Crown, has been changed. The new title is Finding Love. cy, and successful psychiatric practice--all undertaken with a determination to succeed despite his being overshadowed by fear and guilt. During the crisis following the dissolution of his marriage, his life was dramatically changed by a chance exposure to the esoteric New Age teaching know as ``A Course in Miracles.'' He records a key turning point: ``It was a monumental test for me; I had to choose whether to listen to the voice of my rational mind, . . . or to listen to that quiet, calm voice in my heart.'' Later he founded the Center for Attitudinal Healing. A blueprint for others hoping to find the light in which he basks, this book will appeal primarily to those already persuaded by the ``California-style'' inspirational approach.-- Carol R. Glatt, Northeastern Hosp. of Philadelphia
