How can we connect the spiritual realizations of Buddhism with the psychological insights of the West? In Toward a Psychology of Awakening John Welwood addresses this question with comprehensiveness and depth. Along the way he shows how meditative awareness can help us develop more dynamic and vital relationships and how psychotherapy can help us embody spiritual realization more fully in everyday life. Welwood's psychology of awakening brings together the three major dimensions of human experience: personal, interpersonal, and suprapersonal, in one overall framework of understanding and practice.

This book does not contain instructions on how to achieve your spiritual goals nor does it provide “how to” guidelines for your personal growth. This book was born in my heart on 12/31/2017 while driving to a New Year’s Eve ceremony at my local Mindfulness Center. My heart opened-up as I became clear that I am beginning my personal journey of awakening to the reality of life as it is in front of me. The only other details I knew at that time was that I needed to write about my awakening in the present moment to reflect on life as it occurred. The significance of writing about life as it unfolded, is my personal experiment to determine which truth is sustainable for me. The one in my mind, that has been fueled by traditions, belief systems, norms and societal expectations or the reality in front of me.

Being human is a lifelong journey of becoming. This journey defines our humanity, for it is a journey toward our source and our fulfillment, described in Christian theology as union with God. If we remain open to God as our sense of self awakens, we experience a deeper consciousness of being in him. The self that emerges during this process is larger, more enlightened, and whole. David Benner, who has spent thirty-five years integrating psychology and spirituality, presents psychological insights in a readable fashion to offer readers a deeper understanding of the self and its spiritual development. Drawing on a broad range of Christian traditions, Benner shows that the transformation of self is foundational to Christian spirituality. This book will appeal to readers interested in a psychologically grounded, fresh exploration of Christian spirituality; professionals engaged in pastoral care, counseling, and spiritual direction; and students in ministry development and spiritual formation courses. Questions and answers for individual or group use are included at the end of each chapter.
