    Very interesting!

    This book is absolutely incredible! It explains the development of human consciousness in such a comprehensive way that it is a must read for people interested in personal growth from a transpersonal perspective. Many writers have written about transpersonal experiences before but this author brings it all together and presents it as a very nice package. I also found the author's application of these ideas to psychotherapy very interesting and thought provoking. As a psychotherapist using the transpersonal approach, I find this book quite exquisite! The only other book on this topic that I would really recommend is 'The Ever-Transcending Spirit' by Toru Sato. Sato explains these ideas in the simplest ways that it makes us think, 'Why didn't I understand that before?' He uses the most creative analogies to explain our experiences, including transpersonal ones that you are simply left in awe.
