A Practical Approach to Achieving Inner WisdomBook - 2003
Two pioneers in holistic psychology show how to heal mind and spirit, using Dante's Divine Comedyas a metaphor for personal growth. Bringing a unique Western approach to the quest for enlightenment, Dante's Pathaddresses such struggles as depression, anxiety, and addiction through a brilliant lens called psychosynthesis. Conceived by Italian psychotherapist Roberto Assagioli, who was a student of Sigmund Freud and colleague of Carl Jung, psycho-synthesis embraces spirituality as a key component of mental health. Dante's Pathdraws on Dante's epic poem The Divine Comedy(of which Assagioli was a devotee) as a rich metaphor for the challenge of escaping from fear-based instincts (Dante's Hell), into a place of personal transformation (Purgatory), then into the confidence of finding life's higher purpose (his Pilgrim's Paradise). With specific exercises, such as guided imagery and meditations, Dante's Pathleads readers on a unique step-by-step journey for building an ongoing relationship with their guiding inner wisdom. The Schaubs have used this holistic method to successfully treat hundreds of patients for over thirty years.
