In the last few years a number of books have appeared about Transpersonal Psychology, but few have been written by those with years of experience both in life and in the study of the Transpersonal. In the 1970's Barbara Somers and Ian Gordon-Brown started a centre for transpersonal study. This came out of their lifelong work and interest in psychology in its many forms. They developed a method and a mode of teaching that was unique to them, drawing on their own personal study and their life-experiences, and they took the essence of this and distilled it into a new form of training. This book, carefully edited by Hazel Marshall, is a distillation of that training. It will be extremely useful to therapists who have been working for some years, reconnecting them with their own original point of entry into this study and also affirming and adjusting many of the ways they now work. It will also be fascinating to those just starting on the path of psychotherapy, as it will give them insights that no other book that I know of can give them. This book is easy to read, but it is not easy to forget. Sentences, paragraphs, thoughts, understandings and indeed its deep humanness will stay with you for some time; perhaps for ever.
