I wrote this book to help me think through the implications of a shift in my understanding and practice of psychotherapy. My practice was moving beyond the technical ways I was trained in psychoanalytic psychotherapy to more holistic ways that were emerging as I came to understanding how fundamental spirituality is to our humanity. But it was never intended as simply a book for mental health professionals, nor has it turned out to be. It is a book about how the spiritual and psychological dimensions of human existence go together and in that regard, it is an extension of ideas first expanded in Psychotherapy and the Spiritual Quest a decade earlier. Originally published in 1998, this book remains in print with strong sales that suggest that there is something timeless about anything that focuses on our humanity and assists our understanding of how to relate to others in ways that support both spiritual and psychological dimensions of being.
