Many people have an aptitude for religious experience and spirituality but don't know how to develop this or take it further. Modern societies offer little assistance, and traditional religions are overly preoccupied with their own organizational survival. Minding the Self: Jungian meditations on contemporary spirituality offers suggestions for individual spiritual development in our modern and post-modern times. Here, Murray Stein argues that C.G. Jung and depth psychology provide guidance and the foundation for a new kind of modern spirituality. Murray Stein explores the problem of spirituality within the cultural context of modernity and offers a way forward without relapsing into traditional or mythological modes of consciousness. Chapters work towards finding the proper vessel for contemporary spirituality and dealing with the ethical issues that crop up along the way. Stein shows how it is an individual path but not an isolationist one, often using many resources borrowed from a variety of religious traditions: it is a way of symbol, dream and experiences of the numinous with hints of transcendence as these come into personal awareness. Minding the Self: Jungian meditations on contemporary spirituality uses research from a wide variety of fields, such as dream-work and the neuroscience of the sleeping brain, clinical experience in Jungian psychoanalysis, anthropology, ethics, Zen Buddhism, Jung's writings and the recently published Red Book. It will be of interest to psychoanalysts, Jungian scholars, undergraduates, graduate and post-graduate students and anyone with an interest in modern spirituality.

In Integrative Spirituality, Patrick J. Mahaffey elucidates spirituality as a developmental process that is enhanced by integrating the teachings and practices of multiple religious traditions, Jungian depth psychology, and contemplative yoga. In the postmodern world of religious pluralism, Mahaffey compellingly argues that each of us must fashion a unique path to wholeness which integrates aspects of life and of the self that have become disconnected and disowned. Integrative Spirituality uniquely conjoins four components: exemplary religious pluralists from three traditions, individuation, the forms of contemplative Hindu yoga that have been successfully transmitted to the West, and a presentation of two models for integrating psychological growth and spiritual awakening. The book presents pioneering practitioners in each field who exemplify how we may fashion our own approach to integrating both spiritual awakening and psychological development and delineates an array of spiritual practices that integrate the somatic, psychological, interpersonal, and spiritual aspects of life. Ultimately, Mahaffey contends that integrative spirituality is a mode of being that fully embraces the divinity inherent in each of us and in the world. Integrative Spirituality will be essential reading for academics and students of Jungian and post-Jungian studies, transpersonal and Jungian psychology, and religious studies and contemplative education. It will also be of interest to analytical and depth psychologists in practice and in training, and to anyone seeking a greater understanding of spirituality, psychological growth, religious traditions, individuation, and contemplative yoga.

In this book, Alexander von Gontard, a child psychiatrist, uses the language, thought and imagery of Buddhism to explore the spirituality of children. The book begins by exploring the Buddha's own childhood and the 'divine child' in Buddhism, a key archetype in Jungian psychology. The author defines the spirituality and religiosity of children and adolescents and identifies manifestations of spirituality in children, such as experiences of awe and wonder, and favourable conditions for spirituality, such as silence, nature, extreme conditions and mindfulness. Drawing on his own experience working with children in therapeutic practice, von Gontard discusses the parallels between spontaneous spirituality seen in childhood and the Buddha's teachings. Revealing how the spiritual insights and experiences of children and adolescents can uncover a deep and wise understanding of human life that is compatible with the Buddha's teachings, this book will be of particular interest to professionals and academics in psychology, psychiatry, psychotherapy, education and religious studies.

How can we make sense of ourselves within a world of change? In Analytical Psychology in a Changing World, an international range of contributors examine some of the common pitfalls, challenges and rewards that we encounter in our efforts to carve out identities of a personal or collective nature, and question the extent to which analytical psychology as a school of thought and therapeutic approach must also adapt to meet our changing needs. The contributors assess contemporary concerns about our sense of who we are and where we are going, some in light of recent social and natural disasters and changes to our social climates, others by revisiting existential concerns and philosophical responses to our human situation in order to assess their validity for today. How we use our urban environments and its structures to make sense of our pathologies and shortcomings; the relevance of images and the dynamic forms that underpin our experience of the world; how analytical psychology can effectively manage issues and problems of cultural, religious and existential identity – these broad themes, and others besides, are vividly illustrated by striking case-studies and unique personal insights that give real lucidity to the ideas and arguments presented. Analytical Psychology in a Changing World will be essential reading for Jungian and post-Jungian scholars and clinicians of depth psychology, as well as sociologists, philosophers and any reader with a critical interest in the important cultural ideas of our time.

只要獲得靈啟經驗, 人就能掙脫病症的詛咒, 甚至連疾病本身都會沾上靈性。 ───榮格 物質科學當道,宗教面臨存亡之危,但靈性的呼喚盤旋人心,我們如何找尋失落的靈魂? 本書試圖為靈性需求找到合於當代情境的載具。作者史丹博士認為,回歸宗教傳統或擁抱物質科學可能都行不通,而榮格心理學是新的可能性──「關注自性」(minding the self),走上個體化歷程。 在本書中,史丹博士穿梭西方宗教、東方禪學、腦科學、倫理學、自身靈啟經驗以及榮格的書信、《紅書》,描繪當代靈性旅程多彩的風景。他指出,靈性之路是一條由象徵、夢境以及隨之而來的靈啟經歷所共築的道路。它跨越文化,指向超越,讓人不受世俗自我(ego)所綑綁,進而能連結萬有之本,體現自性、展現神性。 有別於傳統宗教講求追隨象徵公義的神,史丹指出,在關注自性的靈性之旅中,個人則將敢於同時面對內心的正、邪力量,予以調和。這過程難免苦痛,但終將帶來心靈平衡,成為集體潛意識的內容,為世界帶來正面的力量。 【專業推薦】 王浩威(作家、心理治療師) 洪素珍(臺北教育大學心理與諮商學系副教授) 馬思恩(榮格分析師、香港榮格中心創辦人) 鄧惠文(作家、精神科醫師) 魏宏晉(北京大學哲學博士、榮格作品譯者) 【專業好評】 榮格指明了一條心理的宗教道路,人人都可通過個體化努力走向上帝,這本書對此論述精彩,令人激賞。 ───魏宏晉(榮格作品譯者) 史丹博士關注自性的發展,以榮格心理學做為宗教再神聖化的基礎,為現代靈性追求建議了一條可行出路。 ───洪素珍(臺北教育大學心理與諮商學系副教授) 對於個體化的概念如何作為自性覺醒的靈性歷程,史丹博士這本書為讀者褪去神秘面紗。他告訴我們,自性的經驗即是將我們與神連結的真實內在經歷。這個歷程同時讓我們明白「象徵」是如何透過夢、神話、經典和童話,對個人和集體心靈產生實質的攸關與意義。對於如何在這個後現代世界過有意識的靈性生活,分析心理學提供了確切指引──這是榮格對人類的貢獻。 ───馬思恩(Shirley See Yan Ma,榮格分析師、《纏足幽靈:從榮格心理分析看女性的自性追尋》作者) 這本書用榮格的生命與學說作導引,為讀者將當代靈性困境作了卓越論述。莫瑞•史丹為人稱道的就是,他的風格帶著學者式的論述紮實,同時又能讓非專業人士與一般讀者輕易了解與接受。 ───大衛•泰西(David Tacey,澳洲墨爾本拉籌伯大學﹝La Trobe University, Melbourne﹞文學教授)
