Description

In this comprehensive work, Eugene Taylor uses the tenets of modern psychology, concepts from the world’s religions, and a lifetime of spiritual experiences and interior exploration to show how true healing comes from within. Taylor asserts that “consciousness and healing are linked and this connection can best be understood within the context of a growth-oriented psychology of self-realization.” Everyone has the capacity to develop a healing personality.

Drawing from such diverse interpreters of transcendental and psychological experiences as William James, Emanuel Swedenborg, Mircea Eliade, Carl Jung, Victor Frankl, and Abraham Maslow, Taylor explores the divisions between science and religious traditions; presents his own personal experiences, including his meetings with the Dalai Lama and Tenzin Norgay; and provides glimpses into the spiritual lives of others who have shared their experiences with him. The function of belief in the alleviation of suffering, the development of self-awareness, and the importance of human relationships form the basis for Taylor’s psychology of spiritual healing. This cogent work both provides answers and raises questions for the spiritual seeker.
