Overview

Many excellent volumes have focused on key chapters in our lives, from classics on early childhood and the teen years to bestsellers that identify pivotal phases in adulthood. In The Human Odyssey best-selling author Thomas Armstrong, Ph.D. covers the entire journey.
With Dr. Armstrong, we can travel through the first stirrings of life in the womb to the anticipation of death and even beyond. In a unique synthesis, he draws from a wide array of sources from various disciplines and cultures to fashion a compelling narrative; scientific and psychological knowledge combine with personal accounts, literary passages, myths and legends, and psychospiritual perspectives to help enrich our understanding of the broad sweep of life. The result is a comprehensive, groundbreaking view of our development.
The core of this enlightening guide consists of 12 chapters, each describing a different stage of life, with its own unique changes, struggles, and growth. A final chapter poses the possibility that the voyage may even continue after physical death. Additionally, Dr. Armstrong includes a comprehensive bibliography with further reading, list of organizations, practical activities, and a filmography.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
ENDORSEMENTS:
Human Odyssey is superb, magnificent, astonishing, unique, engrossing, eminently readable, informative, enjoyable, entertaining, profound."—Joseph Chilton Pearce, author of The Crack in the Cosmic Egg and Magical Child.
" impressive. I also think that it has great commercial potential. Many people will find attractive your dual focus on the scientific and the soul/spiritual dimensions.”—Howard Gardner, Ph.D., The John H. and Elizabeth A. Hobbs Professor in Cognition and Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, author Frames of Mind.
“I very much enjoyed Human Odyssey. [The] breadth of sources is remarkable, and you have put them all together in a smooth and integrative way. I think it will be informative for people, and also inspiring for them….Overall, this is an impressive tour de force.”—Arthur Hastings, Ph.D., Professor and Director, William James Center for Consciousness Studies, Institute of Transpersonal Psychology.
“...an extraordinary book; an intellectual feast. Armstrong has amassed and integrated an amazing amount of information from developmental and transpersonal psychology, modern consciousness research, biology, anthropology, mythology, and art, and created an extraordinary guide through all the stages of the adventure of human life. While the rich content of this book will impress professional audiences, its clear and easy style makes it quite accessible to the general public."—Stanislav Grof, M.D., former Chief of Psychiatric Research, Maryland Psychiatric Research Center, author of Realms of the Human Unconscious, Beyond the Brain: Birth, Death, and Transcendence in Psychotherapy, and Adventures in Self-Discovery.
