Where does spirituality belong in psychotherapy, and in our lives? Drawing upon thirty years of experience with meditation, spiritual practice, and the art and science of psychotherapy, Dr. Kenneth Porter demonstrates how spiritual practices and psychotherapy inform and enhance one another in helping therapists, clients, and all of us in simply living our lives to find our fullest, most authentic, and loving selves. Utilizing a balance of personal experiences and established psychological theory, this book is an essential resource for psychotherapists and patients, presenting a compelling case for spirituality’s place in therapy, and explaining in detail how practitioners may incorporate spirituality into their practice. But Apollo’s Lyre is also a crucial resource for all of us, establishing how we are all spiritual beings at our core, and revealing how spirituality reveals incredible possibilities for loving self-discovery and transformation in our lives.
An excellent resource for both the therapist and the spiritually curious.
Psychotherapy facilitates and empowers people to change. Spiritual psychotherapy is a unique form of spiritual path which often combines Eastern and Western teachings. It can offer highly effective ways of undoing the darkness which covers an individual’s inner light. It also has the potential to show how to remove conditions brought about by our fears and help to discover love in its place.
