On these pages you will find a continually growing list of books I recommend on a highly diverse number of subjects. Some of the books have been around for years, and some are recent. The older ones are not less valuable. Frequently the subjects overlap, thus there may be some repetitions from one subject area to another. The books are organized alphabetically by subject area, and then by author surname.

Rewiring The Soul.

Ask anyone, whatever their circumstances, if their life is vibrant, fulfilling, harmonious and happy. An honest reply is likely to be 'no', because to answer a truthful 'yes' is no mean feat. Only to grow psychologically and emotionally is not enough. And only to grow spiritually is not enough either. All three dimensions need to be developed in order to realize your full potential. If you are willing to assume total responsibility for the self and to start what is an on-going journey, you will quickly begin to glimpse the first fruits of the ultimate goal: inner well-being, freedom, peace, harmony and joy. This book sets out the pathway to self-mastery and self-discovery and walking that pathway will be the most exciting adventure of your life.

'Rewiring the Soul' provides a user-friendly roadmap for personal transformation. Using conversational style, it guides the reader to an understanding of life's problems and how they can be resolved, deliberately including the reader's connection to his own soul and spiritual growth. Based on common sense and the author's work as an integral psychotherapist as well as lessons gleaned from teaching and personal experiences, all interwoven with current findings from neuroscience, positive psychology, quantum physics and Buddhism, 'Rewiring the Soul' signposts the path to resolving everyday life and its problems while converging with the inner quest for connection with the soul. This process allows life to take on a revolutionary new meaning: resolving personal and interpersonal issues while keeping the inner connection to the soul in mind leads to unprecedented growth that is simply not possible if psycho-emotional matters and spiritual concerns are not combined.

Reclaiming the Inner Child
The inner child, that vital but submerged part of the self that connects us to both the joy and sadness of our childhood, is a key to our achieving fullest expression as adults. This collection of 37 articles defines and gives concrete reality to the abstract image of the inner child, revealing it to be the unifying symbol of the self, a symbol that represents, according to Carl Jung, "the part of the human personality which wants to develop and become whole.

Benjamin, psychoanalyst, feminist theorist and member of the graduate faculty of the New School for Social Research, presents an intriguing analysis of the interplay between love and domination and of how "domination is anchored in the hearts of the dominated." (From Publishers Weekly)

Bennett-Goleman, Tara
Emotional Alchemy: How the Mind can heal the Heart
According to ancient legends, alchemists use a magical philosopher's stone to transmute lead into gold. In Emotional Alchemy, Tara Bennett-Goleman shows readers how they can use this alchemist metaphor to transform emotional confusion (lead) into insightful clarity (gold). And what does the magic stone represent? "Mindfulness," a lifelong practice that can bring readers more joy and contentment than the gold, according to Bennett-Goleman. "Mindfulness means seeing things as they are without trying to change them," she writes. "The point is to dissolve our reactions to disturbing emotions, being careful not to reject the emotion itself."

Berenstein, Frederick H.
Lost Boys: Reflections of Psychoanalysis and Countertransference
Each chapter in this books tells of a different child's experience of his life's story, and his analytic healing. But each story in this book tells of the same childhood experience - of pain, rage, hopelessness, and destroyed love, and eventual healing. (Mira Rothenberg)

Dr. Eric Berne, as the originator of transactional analysis, has attained recognition for developing one of the most innovative approaches to modern psychotherapy.

Bly, Robert & Woodman, Marion
The Maiden King: The Reunion of the Masculine and Feminine
The authors base their book on a hugely intriguing Russian tale of similar name, "The Maiden Tsar," which they read from a mythological perspective that seeks to "reunite the masculine and feminine" principles. Principles because, as Bly points out, as concepts they do not belong to, or necessarily express attributes of, the female/male genders as conventionally based on sexedness. (From Publishers Weekly)

Branden, Nathaniel
The Art of Living Consciously: The Power of Awareness to Transform Everyday Life
In The Art of Living Consciously, Dr. Nathaniel Branden, our foremost authority on self-esteem, takes us into new territory, exploring the actions of our minds when they are operating as our life and well-being require -- and also when they are not. No other book illuminates so clearly what true mindfulness means: in the workplace, in the arena of romantic love, in child-rearing, in the pursuit of personal development. Today we are exposed to an unprecedented amount of information and an unprecedented number of opinions about every conceivable aspect of life. We are thrown on our own resources as never before -- and we have nothing to protect us but the clarity of our thinking. In The Art of Living Consciously, Branden gives us the tools with which to draw out the best within us.

Branden, Nathaniel
The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem
Branden conclusively demonstrates the importance of self-esteem in our quest for psychological health, personal achievement, and positive relationships. Yet how do we gain true self-esteem? Dr. Branden introduces the six pillars of self-esteem: six action-based practices for daily living.

Brinton Perera, Sylvia
Descent to the Goddess: A Way of Initiation for Women
Descent To The Goddess is a highly original and provocative book about women's freedom and the need for an inner, female authority in a masculine-oriented society. Combining ancient texts and modern dreams, Sylvia Perera presents a way of feminine initiation. As Inanna-Ishtar (Sumerian Goddess of Heaven and Earth) journeys into the underworld to Ershkigal, her dark "sister". and returns, so modern women must descend from their old role-determined behavior into the depths of their instinct and image patterns to find anew the Great Goddess and restore her values to modern culture.(From Midwest Book Review)

Brunner, Cornelia
Anima as Fate
The first part of the book explores the notion of the anima, the contrasexual aspect of a man’s psyche, in the works of Rider Haggard, particularly in his celebrated novel She. The book’s second part traces the development of the anima in a series of dreams that a middle-aged physician experienced over a period of several years.

Chernin, Kim
Reinventing Eve: Modern Woman in Search of Herself
From Chernin's keen perspective, women, if they are to tap their authentic potential, must reclaim forgotten forms of female knowledge and power, often repressed because they are associated with oppressive mothers or religious taboos. Her discussion of the dilemma of Eve in the Garden of Eden whether to eat or not to eat a forbidden food explores the meaning of food vis-a-vis female creativity and its prohibition in a father-dominated culture. (From Publishers Weekly)

Claremont de Castillejo, Irene
Knowing Woman: A Feminine Psychology
In this classic work, a noted Jungian analyst explores the division of the human psyche into masculine and feminine. Characteristic of feminine consciousness, she writes, is diffuse awareness, which recognizes the unity of all life and promotes acceptance and relationship. The masculine attitude is one of focused consciousness, the capacity to formulate ideas and to change, invent, and create.

Collins, Bryn C.
Emotional Unavailability: Recognizing It, Understanding It, Avoiding Its Trap
An inspiring, solution-oriented guide, Emotional Unavailability takes an upbeat look at why people form painful and unfulfilling associations and empowers them to find authentic emotional connections. Through real-life examples, quizzes, and an easy-to-understand text, readers learn how to identify the 10 types of emotionally unavailable people to avoid and put themselves on the road to a truly satisfying relationship.

Conger, John P.
Jung and Reich: The Body as Shadow
Although contemporaries, Carl Jung and Wilhelm Reich -two giants in the field of psychoanalysis - never met. What might have happened if they had is the inspiration behind this detailed investigation. Jung and Reich succinctly outlines each man's personality and compares their lives and their work, emphasizing points of convergence between them. John Conger provocatively puts Jung's mystical approach and psychological approach to spiritual disciplines on the same plane as Reich's controversial theories of "genitality" and character armor. The result is a heady "what if?" bound to intrigue and inspire readers.

Cowan, Lyn
Masochism: A Jungian View
A readable book on the psychology of masochism and how it is connected to religious feeling and depth. What are the true spiritual and psychological pleasures of shame, pain, humiliation, and submission? Are the secrets of these pleasures contained in the clinical literature—Krafft-Ebing, Freud, Jung, or Murray? Are the pathologies of masochism inherent in the religious belief in Dionysus, Lord of Souls, Lord of the Dead, and Jesus Christ? Cowan presents answers to these questions in a book as surprising, profound, and pleasurable.

Csikszentmihalyi, Mihaly
Finding Flow: The Psychology of Engagement with Everyday Life
Csikszentmihalyi eloquently argues that living fully in the here and now requires that one heed the lessons of the past and acknowledge that today's most seemingly trivial acts inevitably have an impact on the future. (From the New York Times Book Review)

Davis, Bruce
The Magical Child Within You
This book speaks to that hidden place in each of us where the most precious commodity is trust – in ourselves and in others.

Downing, Christine, ed.
Mirrors of the Self: Archetypal Images That Shape Your Life
An excellent book for students of depth psychology and those acquainted with the theories of Carl Jung. Editor Downing (religious studies, Univ. of San Diego) has assembled articles which focus on the archetypal images defined by Jung. These traditional archetypal images are used to reveal an inner look at the psyche, thus providing "a mirror to the self." (From Library Journal)

Dumas, Didier
Sons, Lovers, and Fathers: Understanding Male Sexuality
Welcome to a Gallic correction of the current […] fallacy that male sexuality is bereft of female emotional need! Here are new explanations of boys’ erotodynamic fantasies as reformulations of parental erotic mismatchings, eventually leading to erotic dysfunctionalism in the boys’ own adulthood. (John Money)

**Dyer, William, Dr.
Your Erroneous Zones
If you're plagued by guilt or worry and find yourself unwittingly falling into the same old self-destructive patterns, then you have "erroneous zones"--whole facets of your approach to life that act as barriers to your success and happiness, if you believe that you have no control over your feelings and reactions, you give up the many choices that are available to you. Dyer shows how you can take charge of yourself and manage how much you will let difficult times--and people--affect you. If you spend more time worrying what others think than working on what you want and need, you will always be disappointed. Dyer shows that only you can make yourself happy and points the way to true self-reliance. If you are still caught up in old labels for yourself and an out-of-date self-image, you cancel out your present potential. Dyer shows how you can break out of the patterns of the post to become fulfilled in the present. If you depend upon others for your well-being, you lose yourself. Dyer shows how to take control of your own needs and learn to give and receive love without limits.

**Edelmann, Hope
Motherless Daughters: The Legacy of Loss
Edelman shares her own painful story and the stories of many other women who, as children or adults, lost their mothers. She explains the stages of grief and adjustment. She considers the secondary effects that can occur: the girl-child filling the lost mother's role at home for father and younger siblings. If you've lost your mother, you no longer have to face it alone.

Edinger, Edward
The Creation of Consciousness
Using religious and alchemical texts, mythology, modern drams and the concepts of depth psychology, the author proposes nothing less than a new world-view – a creative collaboration between the scientific pursuit of knowledge and the religious search for meaning.

Ferrucci, Piero
Inevitable Grace: Breakthroughs in the Lives of Great Men and Women: Guides to Your Self-Realization
In this study Ferucci examines hundreds of well-known people--Einstein, Schweitzer, Thoreau, Monet, Isadora Duncan, Maria Montessori, Arctic explorer Robert Peary, mystic Jacob Boehme among them--for glimpses into the workings of creativity, inspiration and spiritual growth.(From Publishers Weekly)

Ferrucci, Piero
What We May Be: Techniques for Psychological and Spiritual Growth Through Psychosynthesis
Psychosynthesis is a comprehensive approach to self-realization first formulated by the late Italian psychiatrist Robert Assagioli. In this important book Piero Ferrucci, a former student and collaborator of Assagioli, outlines a specific programme of easy-to-perform exercises that form the basis of a total system for psychological and spiritual growth.

Firestone, R. & Catlett, J.
Fear of Intimacy
In Fear of Intimacy, the authors bring almost 40 years of clinical experience to bear in challenging the usual ways of thinking about couples and families. They argue that relationships fail not because of the commonly cited reasons but because of psychological defenses formed in childhood that act as a barrier to closeness in adulthood.

Ford, Debbie
The Secret of the Shadow: The Power of Owning Your Whole Story
Writing in the voice of the wounded healer, Ford tells her own story of embracing the wisdom and direction she found in facing family and addiction problems. She skillfully offers examples from participants in her workshops at the Chopra center who have leveraged the lessons of a painful past into a purposeful life. She invites readers to "own their whole story" by asking: What is the secret [about you] that your story conceals? What wisdom can you contribute to the world that you couldn't if the events in your life hadn't happened?"

**Frankl, Victor
Man’s Search For Meaning
Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl is among the most influential works of psychiatric literature since Freud. The book begins with a lengthy, austere, and deeply moving personal essay about Frankl's imprisonment in Auschwitz and other concentration camps for five years, and his struggle during this time to find reasons to live. The second part of the book, called "Logotherapy in a Nutshell," describes the psychotherapeutic method that Frankl pioneered as a result of his experiences in the concentration camps. Frankl believes that man's deepest desire is to search for meaning and purpose

**Fromm, Erich
The Art of Loving
This book belongs on the life changers shelf in the bookstore. Because modern man is alienated from himself, from his fellow men, and from nature, we seek refuge from our aloneness in the concepts of love and marriage. However, psychologist and social philosopher, Erich Fromm (1900-1980), observes that real love "is not a sentiment which can be easily indulged in by anyone." It is only through developing one's total personality to the capacity of loving one's neighbor with "true humility, courage, faith and discipline" that one attains the capacity to experience real love. This should be considered a rare achievement. The active character of true love, Fromm observes, involves the basic elements of care, responsibility, respect, and knowledge.

Glasser, William, M.D.
Choice Theory: A New Psychology of Personal Freedom, Choosing the Life you Want and Staying Close to the People you Need
Glasser believes that almost all human misery is caused by people trying to control others. In fact, he says, the only behavior we can control is our own; by the same token, no one can make us do anything we don't want to. It's only when we give up spending our energy trying to force others to conform to our ideas or to keep them from doing the same to us that we are able to live the way we want to. Glasser makes this somewhat difficult material easier to understand with examples and case studies from his own practice. For instance, he tells a man whose wife has left him that his only choices are to change what he wants her to do or to change the way he is dealing with her. While doing these things will not necessarily bring his wife back, Glasser says, it will certainly make him feel better. "When we actually begin to realize that we can control only our own behavior, we immediately start to redefine our personal freedom and find, in many instances, that we have much more freedom than we realize,” Glasser writes.

Goleman, Daniel
Destructive Emotions: How Can We Overcome Them? A Scientific Dialogue with the Dalai Lama
This book forcefully puts to rest the misconception that the realms of science and spirituality are at odds. In this extraordinary book, Daniel Goleman presents dialogues between the Dalai Lama and a small group of eminent psychologists, neuroscientists, and philosophers that probe the challenging questions: Can the worlds of science and philosophy work together to recognize destructive emotions such as hatred, craving, and delusion? If so, can they transform those feelings for the ultimate improvement of humanity? As the Dalai Lama explains, "With the ever-growing impact of science on our lives, religion and spirituality have a greater role to play in reminding us of our humanity."

Goleman, Daniel
Emotional Intelligence: Why it Can matter More Than IQ
There was a time when IQ was considered the leading determinant of success. In this fascinating book, based on brain and behavioral research, Daniel Goleman argues that our IQ-idolizing view of intelligence is far too narrow. Instead, Goleman makes the case for "emotional intelligence" being the strongest indicator of human success. He defines emotional intelligence in terms of self-awareness, altruism, personal motivation, empathy, and the ability to love and be loved by friends, partners, and family members. People who possess high emotional intelligence are the people who truly succeed in work as well as play, building flourishing careers and lasting, meaningful relationships. Because emotional intelligence isn't fixed at birth, Goleman outlines how adults as well as parents of young children can sow the seeds.

Greenspan, Miriam
Healing Through the Dark Emotions: The Wisdom of Grief, Fear, and Despair
In this heartfelt therapeutic manifesto, psychotherapist Greenspan argues that grief, fear and despair are not pathologies to be medicated away but emotions that help us grow psychologically and spiritually. (From Publishers Weekly)

Griscom, Chris
The Healing of Emotion: Awakening the Fearless Self
Chris Griscom offers an inspiring and revolutionary approach to understanding, as well as healing, painful emotions. She has written an accessible and enlightening guide to overcoming the fears, anxieties, and anger that can keep us from leading liberated, abundant, and fulfilling lives. Learn how to eliminate these negative emotions by understanding that they are merely addictive emotional responses which we use to feel "alive".

**Harding, Esther, M.
The Way of All Women
Acclaimed as one of the best works available on feminine psychology from the time it first appeared in 1933, "The Way of All Women" discusses topics such as work, marriage, motherhood, old age, and women's relationships with family, friends, and lovers. Dr. Harding, who was best known for her work with women and families, stresses the need for a woman to work toward her own wholeness and develop the many sides of her nature, and emphasizes the importance of unconscious processes.

Harding, Esther
Women’s Mysteries
Here is a classic study of the feminine principle in myths, dreams, and religious symbolism. In presenting the archetypal foundations of feminine psychology, the author shows how the ancient religious initiations of the moon goddess symbolized the development of the emotions. Understanding the psychological meaning of these initiations, she believes, can help to heal the troubled relations between men and women today.

Henry, Patti
The Emotionally Unavailable Man: A Blueprint for Healing
The Emotionally Unavailable Man is two books in one — one side is for the emotionally unavailable man and the other is for his partner. It details why men become emotionally unavailable and specifies the actions that can be taken by both men and women to realize improvement

Hollis, James
The Eden Project: In Search of the Magical Other, A Jungian Perspective on Relationship
A timely and thought-provoking corrective to the generalized fantasies about relationships that permeate our culture. This is not a practical guide on how to fix a relationship, but rather a challenge to greater personal responsibility in relationships, a call for individual growth as opposed to seeking rescue through others.

Hillman, James
Anima: An Anatomy of a Personified Nation
A fascinating examination of the age-old idea of the feminine soul as a figure of imagination who both inspired and disturbs. From this book we watch how Jung conceived the anima notion in all its variety and then how Hillman interprets and extrapolates from the master. "Anima and Eros", "Anima and Feeling", "Anima and Soul", and "Anima and the Unknown" are some of the ten chapters filled with humor and insights.

Hopcke, R.H.
There are no Accidents: Synchronicity and the Stories of our Lives
Think back on all the coincidences that have shaped your life--the homes you lived in, the love stories you created, the jobs you held. Jungian psychotherapist Robert Hopcke shows readers how to sift through life's coincidences in order to better understand the soul and read the map of its destiny. Blending his mastery of storytelling with years of synchronicity reflection and research, Hopcke has created an entertaining tool for rediscovering own life stories.

Horney, Karen
Our Inner Conflicts: A Constructive Theory of Neurosis
“Conflicts play an infinitely greater role in neurosis than is commonly assumed. To detect them, however, is no easy matter – partly because they are essentially unconscious, but even more, because the neurotic goes to any length to deny their existence”. (excerpted from the book)

Horney, Karen
Self-Analysis
In this book Dr Horney writes on the possibilities of self-analysis: to what extent the individual can use the techniques of psychoanalysis to deal with his own problems.

Horney, Karen
Feminine Psychology
Perhaps the most important contribution Karen Horney made to psychodynamic thought was her disagreements with Freud's view of women. In many ways, she was well ahead of her time and although she died before the feminist movement took hold, she was perhaps the theorist who changed the way psychology looked at gender differences.

Why do so many women and men obsessively attach themselves to destructive relationships that they cannot walk away from? Why do they pathologically need to control their partners, using whatever means necessary? John Moore helps these people to identify, comprehend and become aware of their destructive behaviors in personal relationships so they can stop the vicious cycle of pain. John Moore sheds light on a problem that is widely unknown and often misunderstood. People Who Confuse Love with Obsession can discover healthy, loving relationships with others but only when they learn to have a relationship with themselves.
