Psychotherapy and Spirituality: Integrating the Spiritual Dimension into Therapeutic Practice Psychotherapy and Spirituality: Integrating the Spiritual Dimension into Therapeutic Practice

aus der Kategorie Englische Bücher / English Books

'Organizing her text into four parts, Schreurs invites the attentive reader to engage the book's insights on the existential and relational levels. Rich with vignettes, this intriguing work may speak to both believers and nonbelievers...The book, rich with bibliography and endnotes, will prove valuable to graduate students in psychology and theology alike.' - Theological Studies 'This clear and engaging book is essential reading for all therapists who feel out of their depth when patients raise spiritual concerns.' - Religion & Theology 'Somewhat more practical in its emphasis on integrating the spiritual dimension in therapeutic practice is Agneta Schreurs' Psychotherapy and Spirituality (Jessica Kingsley). Informed from a Christian theological background and the therapeutic orientation of group analysis this book sets out to study the interface between psychotherapy and spirituality. It focuses on understanding and differentiating the nature of religious/spiritual issues that may arise for people in the present western cultural and historical context of psychotherapy and also considers how these may be approached by the therapist. A number of complex conceptual issues are examined and these are frequently illustrated with vignettes from the therapeutic material. Although restricted in its orientation to the western Christian tradition the book elaborates a wide range of fundamental issues and provides a good starting point for further reading in related fields. - Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling & Psychotherapy 'Schreurs presents a variety of vignettes, mostly - but not exclusively - about clinical situations, and invites the reader to explore his or her responses. In the process she reveals the differences, similarities and, most intriguingly, the overlaps between the spiritual and the therapeutic: specifically group analytic paradigms. Such a synthesis is long overdue. This is a book that all mental health practitioners should read.' - Mental Health T

Modernity and Re-Enchantment: Religion in Post-Revolutionary Vietnam Modernity and Re-Enchantment: Religion in Post-Revolutionary Vietnam

aus der Kategorie Englische Bücher / English Books

The richness and vibrancy of Vietnamese spirituality are vividly portrayed in these twelve essays that shed light on the remarkable reflorescence of religion in this communist country.Ancestor worship, mediumship, sacrifices, and communal rituals have not only survived Vietnams reintegration into the capitalist world; they are intrinsic to the dramatic reshaping of its contemporary social and cultural life. Transnational Buddhism and Christianity challenge the political status quo as they answer conflicting aspirations for enlightenment, justice, national development and cultural identity.Making conceptual contributions to anthropology and comparative religion, this book provides insights from post-revolutionary Vietnam into the diverse passages to re-enchantment in the modern world.

Spiritual Warfare: Book Three of The Enlightenment Trilogy Spiritual Warfare: Book Three of The Enlightenment Trilogy

aus der Kategorie Englische Bücher / English Books

Guns and bombs are children's toys. A true war wages, and you're invited. IT'S AN INVITATION you may not be able to accept if you want to, or decline if you don't. It's an invitation to fight in a war like no other; a war where loss is counted as gain, surrender as victory, and where the enemy you must face, an enemy of unimaginable superiority, is yourself. In Spiritual Warfare, the metaphor of warfare rarely appears. Instead, we are presented with the living reality of a very normal woman - a wife and mother with a demanding career and high-stress lifestyle - and we see what happens when she receives an invitation that, try as she might, she can't refuse. And we meet another woman, a woman who accepted the invitation and fought and won. In the closing chapters of this book, we attend her memorial service as Jed delivers her eulogy. Spiritual Warfare issues a damning and irrefutable indictment of its own audience and genre, putting spirituality and religion themselves on trial. A terrible crime is being committed against humanity, a crime of oppression and subjugation far beyond Orwell's 1984. We are the victims of this crime, but we are also its perpetrators. Our motive is fear, our sin is ignorance, and the chain in which we enslave ourselves is belief. "Belief means not wanting to know what is true." -Friedrich Nietzsche- Spiritual Warfare is a book for those who do want to know; people who want to escape from their dark asylum and experience a direct and authentic spirituality; people for whom it's time to look, to think, to know, and - at long last - to put away childish things.

Violence -- senseless violence. Gangs. Rape. Crime. Murder. Substance abuse. Denigration of women. Racism. No conscience. No remorse. Reckless promiscuity. Irresponsibility. Divorce and single-parenting. Babies having babies. Abortion as birth control. Dependence of government as a way of life. Rebellion. Hatred of authority and authority figures. An educational system in crisis. Victim mentality. The loss of religion and spirituality. Polarization. What does this describe? Unfortunately, the behaviors and attitudes of an ever growing segment of our American youth. Why? How did this happen? Many blame the dissolution of the family. But that's incorrect. The dissolution of the family is, most certainly, a tragedy; however, it is merely a symptom, not a cause. The cause is the loss of the paternal function. In short, we are without fathers.But what is a father? What is the paternal function? Why do we need fathers? How did we lose our fathers? And, most importantly, how can we get them back and get back, too, America the way it "used to be"? This seminal book addresses this and other crucial issues of our time.

Existential and Spiritual Issues in Death Attitudes Existential and Spiritual Issues in Death Attitudes

aus der Kategorie Englische Bücher / English Books

Existential and Spiritual Issues in Death Attitudes provides: an in-depth examination of death attitudes, existentialism, and spirituality and their relationships; a review of the major theoretical models; clinical applications of these models to issues such as infertility, bereavement, anxiety, and suicide; and an introduction to meaning management theory and how it can be applied to grief counseling. In this new volume, death is treated both as a threat to meaning and as an opportunity to create meaning. The first section introduces theory and methodology to connect the latest empirical research on death attitudes to the philosophical/psychological existential and spirituality literature. Part II presents the latest empirical research on subjects such as end-of-life decisions and living with HIV. The final section considers therapeutic applications to issues including suicide, infertility, bereavement, and anxiety. The concluding chapter highlights the book's common themes and provides questions to encourage further investigation of the most critical topics. Psychologists, counselors, social workers, physicians, nurses, and religious leaders, as well as academics in the fields of psychology, gerontology, philosophy, religion, counseling, social work, sociology, and medicine will value this new resource. Main points summarize important ideas of each chapter, making it an appropriate text in courses on death and dying and/or and spirituality. Its clinical applications will appeal to practicing professionals.

A More Beautiful Question: The Spiritual in Poetry and Art A More Beautiful Question: The Spiritual in Poetry and Art

aus der Kategorie Englische Bücher / English Books

As more and more people in North America and Europe have distanced themselves from mainstream religious traditions over the past centuries, a "crisis of faith" has emerged and garnered much attention. But Glenn Hughes, author of "A More Beautiful Question: The Spiritual in Poetry and Art," contends that despite the withering popularity of faith-based worldviews, our times do not evince a decline in spirituality. One need only consider the search for "alternative" religious symbolisms, as well as the growth of groups espousing fundamentalist religious viewpoints, to recognize that spiritual concerns remain a vibrant part of life in Western culture. Hughes offers the idea that the modern "crisis of faith" is not a matter of vanishing spiritual concerns and energy but rather of their disorientation, even as they remain pervasive forces in human affairs. And because art is the most effective medium for spiritually evocation, it is our most significant touchstone for examining this spiritual disorientation, just as it remains a primary source of inspiration for spiritual experience. "A More Beautiful Question" is concerned with how art, and especially poetry, functions as a vehicle of spiritual expression in today's modern cultures. The book considers the meeting points of art, poetry, religion, and philosophy, in part through examining the treatments of consciousness, transcendence, and art in the writings of twentieth-century philosophers Eric Voegelin and Bernard Lonergan. A major portion of "A More Beautiful Question" is devoted to detailed "case studies" of three influential modern poets: Gerard Manley Hopkins, Emily Dickinson, and T. S. Eliot. In these and its other chapters, the book examines the human need for artistic symbols that evoke the mystery of transcendence, the ways in which poetry and art illuminate the spiritual meanings of freedom, and the benefits of an individual's loving study of great literature and art. "A More Beautiful Question" has a distinct

God Is an Atheist: A Novella for Those Who Have Run Out of Time God Is an Atheist: A Novella for Those Who Have Run Out of Time

aus der Kategorie Englische Bücher / English Books

A profoundly funny romp through religion, spirituality, and the contemporary clash of cultures of belief, with special attention to the human obsession with knowing what can't be known. Nosirrah provokes just about everyone as he describes a world where God is on the run from Islamic extremists, the Pope announces he shares a bed with Richard Dawkins, and Buddha's son disappoints by getting enlightened instead of becoming a doctor. To say this novella is strange might give the reader a way to relate to it, but in fact, nothing will shift the burden away from the reader. In its pages, the world is bent around the reader's mind until either the mind itself begins to bend, or indeed, breaks. A book without plot, characters, structure, or obvious purpose, this is an endless descent into the netherworlds of a dystopian mind. If a thousand monkeys typing endlessly would eventually produce all great works of literature, then God Is an Atheist is their first draft.

The Orphic Hymns The Orphic Hymns

aus der Kategorie Englische Bücher / English Books

At the very beginnings of the Archaic Age, the great singer Orpheus taught a new religion that centered around the immortality of the human soul and its journey after death. He felt that achieving purity by avoiding meat and refraining from committing harm further promoted the pursuit of a peaceful life. Elements of the worship of Dionysus, such as shape-shifting and ritualistic ecstasy, were fused with Orphic beliefs to produce a powerful and illuminating new religion that found expression in the mystery cults. Practitioners of this new religion composed a great body of poetry, much of which is translated in The Orphic Hymns. The hymns presented in this book were anonymously composed somewhere in Asia Minor, most likely in the middle of the third century AD. At this turbulent time, the Hellenic past was fighting for its survival, while the new Christian faith was spreading everywhere. The Orphic Hymns thus reflect a pious spirituality in the form of traditional literary conventions. The hymns themselves are devoted to specific divinities as well as to cosmic elements. Prefaced with offerings, strings of epithets invoke the various attributes of the divinity and prayers ask for peace and health to the initiate. Apostolos N. Athanassakis and Benjamin M. Wolkow have produced an accurate and elegant translation accompanied by rich commentary.

To See God, to See the Buddha To See God, to See the Buddha

aus der Kategorie Englische Bücher / English Books

All religions are by nature traditions based on words and ideas. In this respect, spirituality recognised in religion is spirituality mediated by words and concepts. However, there is also a spirituality that consciously rejects words or ideas: 'seeing spirituality', as opposed to thinking (or believing) spirituality. This book sets out to explore and elucidate this seeing spirituality. The Introduction presents a distinction between the thinking mind and the seeing mind, exploring seeing spirituality first in Meister Eckhart's teaching of 'empty soul', in the Mahayana teaching of sunyata (emptiness) as presented in the "Diamond Sutra" and Nagarjuna's "Verses on the Middle Way", and, finally, in the Zen master Huang Bo's "Transmission of Mind". The focus throughout is on the presentation and explanation of seeing spirituality as immediate awareness of the present free of all concepts. Discussion centres around specific texts, focusing on the working of the seeing mind, rather than through abstract or metaphysical explanation.The author's elucidation of sunyata in terms of the distinction between the thinking mind and the seeing mind, and likewise his juxtaposition of Meister Eckhart and Huang Bo - far apart in their traditions, as they are in time and space - is unique and a major contribution to religious and philosophical scholarship. In addition, the work contains a new translation of major sections of Huang Bo's Dharma talks, the first in English since 1958.

Last of the Gnostics: The End of the Cathars Last of the Gnostics: The End of the Cathars

aus der Kategorie Englische Bücher / English Books

The brutal (and largely unknown) Albigensian Crusade took place from 1209 to 1229 in Languedoc, France, and was perpetrated by the Catholic Church. The victims were thousands of Cathars the members of the region s popular religion. In this extraordinary work, author Don Durrett follows six women of the time to capture the Cathar s final years in rich and historic detail. Although scrutinized for their beliefs, disciples Sarah, Miriam and Mary Magdalene, and later Margaret, Blanche and Joanne, offer Jesus true teachings of love and oneness and a Gnostic philosophy that transcendence comes from within. Last of the Gnostics weaves actual battles and historic figures in a fictional fabric, and uses this backdrop to explore a version of deeply feminine Gnostic spirituality that is quite similar to modern, new age philosophy. Its inspiring, loving message blankets the pages maybe most notably through the Cathar s subsequent persecution as heretics and extinction."

The Shell House The Shell House

aus der Kategorie Englische Bücher / English Books

Connected through time by a once stately mansion, now a burned-out shell of its former grandeur, two young men struggle with the contradictions between body and soul in both contemporary England and the barbed-wire battlefields of WWI. In 2002, Greg is a shy photographer who is elated to discover the ruins of Graveney Hall, a crumbling manor undergoing restoration. As he begins to photograph and explore the grounds, he mulls over the strange new feelings he's having for his classmate Jordan, an introspective boy on the school swim team. Meanwhile, he's also been befriended by Faith, an outgoing girl whose strong sense of spirituality draws Greg into several arguments about religion, causing him to wonder how his recent feelings for Jordan fit into the world of Faith's God. In 1917, Edmund is a young aristocratic soldier burdened by family expectations, the brutality of war, and a secret that could destroy his family. While he loves Graveney Hall, he knows that he will never produce the heir required for him to inherit it. Why? Because he is in love with Alex, his superior officer. Both Edmund and Greg strike bargains with God as each decides what he must to do to uncover his secret--or hide it forever. Passionate and provoking, The Shell House will provide teens with food for thought on a number of compelling issues, including the search for identity, the question of spirituality, and how sexual ethics have changed over time. Fans of Aidan Chambers's similarly themed, Carnegie Award-winning novel, Postcards from No Man's Land, will also enjoy The Shell House. (Ages 13 to 18) --Jennifer Hubert
