TRUE TO BOTH MY SELVES is an extraordinary account of a childhood disjointed by country and by war. Curiously mirroring her English grandmother, who married a German hairdresser in London and was then expelled to Germany following the First World War, Katrin Fitzherbert was born in Germany in 1936 and lived under Hitler's regime until, at the age of eleven, she was suddenly 'repatriated' to an England she had never known. There she had to forget her German father and the German language. This is the story of three generations of remarkable women, and their struggle for survival and integrity as individuals in times divided by war.

False Bodies, True Selves explores the phenomenon of growing numbers of people in western society and beyond completely embedding their sense of identity in their appearance. Unlike other books which address either theoretical models of appearance-focused identity struggles or explore lived experiences of appearance-based battles, False Bodies delves into both. Importantly, the spiritual aspects of what it is to become enemies with one’s body are given centre stage in the context of Donald Winnicott’s theory of the true Self and the false Self. The book begins by looking at some of the myths, superstitions and fairy tales related to mirrors before moving on to western society’s current obsession with appearance, which seems to have been compounded by the mass media. After looking at some of the most common manifestations of appearance-focused anguish including eating disorders and body dysmorphia, it begins to unpick the possible underlying meanings beneath such struggles with a particular emphasis on issues of a systemic nature. The latter part of the book then moves on to the spiritual element of such psychological distress including the benefits of addressing appearance-based disturbances through a transpersonal lens.

More than 100,000 copies sold! Millions of Americans know yoga as a superb form of exercise and as a potent source of calm in the midst of our stress-filled lives. Far fewer are aware of the full promise of yoga as "the way of the fully alive human being"--a 4,000-year-old practical path of liberation that fits the needs of modern Western seekers with startling precision. Now one of America's leading scholars of yoga psychology--who is also a Western-trained psychotherapist--offers this marvelously lively and personal account of an ancient tradition that promises "the soul awake in this lifetime." Drawing on the vivid stories of practitioners at the largest yoga center in America, where he has lived and taught for more than ten years, Stephen Cope describes the philosophy, psychology, and practice of yoga--a practical science of development that urges us not to transcend or dissolve the self, but rather to encounter it more deeply. In this irreverent modern-day Pilgrim's Progress, Cope introduces us to an unforgettable cast of contemporary seekers--on the road to enlightenment carrying all the baggage of the human condition: confusion, loss, disappointment, addiction, and the eternal conflicts around sex and relationship. As he describes the subtle shifts of energy and consciousness that happen at each stage of the path, we discover that in yoga, "liberation" does not require us to leave life in the world for some transcendent spiritual plane. Life itself is the path. Above all, Cope shows how yoga can heal the suffering of self-estrangement that pervades our society, leading us to a new sense of purpose and to a deeper, more satisfying life in the world.

Author and Clinical Hypnotherapist, Debbie Unterman presents an intriguing view into the intricacies of the psyche in a warm, relaxed writing style that draws the reader in. Offering extensive insight into the archetypal patterns that both hinder and guide us, she gives us permission to just be. The unveiling of our true authentic self, she suggests, occurs by unifying our many selves. In this time of upheaval and change here is a guidebook that teaches us how to love ourselves. Worn out belief systems crumble as we hear the stories of healing and transformation in the author and her clients, while the chapter on The Shadow warns that when we try to disown any parts of ourselves we can instigate self-sabotage. Unterman claims this explains the ubiquitous scandals which make headlines and plague so many religious, business, and political leaders today.Many books help readers recognize the burden of the pain they carry, but this one goes beyond traditional psychological analysis to outline the necessity of emotional expression and spiritual integration. The thoughtful self-help exercises at the end of each chapter offer the reader a clear path to cleanse old wounds and initiate change.Debbie Unterman is a Master Alchemist who, since 1983, has helped people navigate through the resources available in their subconscious minds to find creative solutions for their emotional concerns. Through her insight and powerful intuition she has the ability to help people see themselves in new ways and is constantly creating methods to share her gifts with others. In her pursuit to help people uncover solutions to annoying ordinary problems in a radical new way, which often bypasses the need for either mediation or therapy, she created two therapy-based board games for which she has received critical acclaim—Clarity: The Game of Your Life and Satori: The Game of Radical Forgiveness—where people actually “play” their way through their personal issues.She has an inquiring mind with a desire to connect, communicate and touch people deeply. Her listening skills, keen perception and spiritual clarity motivate her students and clients. Professionally she is well known for her work with survivors of childhood abuse, her innovative solution to Co-dependency and helping couples “re-wire” faulty connections between their Sub-personalities through creative communication techniques. Debbie describes herself as a “private eye for the soul, helping people find themselves and restore lost dreams.” She is driven by a spiritual purpose to empower others to break through their fears, explore the depths of their soul and connect with their own beauty and inner truth. Her compassion, authenticity and enthusiasm are inspirational. Her skill in Sub-personality work is described well by one of her clients, who is a licensed counselor in Northern California: “Debbie has the rare gift of catching the nuances of the psyche. She masterfully found so many parts of me that were begging to be heard.” Debbie calls the process she describes in this book of coming to know and understand yourself through discovering and listening to the voices of your Sub-personalities, Inner Voice Integration. Debbie explains: “This book didn't simply come from my years of studying with experts in the fields of psychology, spirituality, philosophy and wellness. It's also based on over a quarter century of personally observing the workings of the subconscious minds of thousands of clients who had wonderful results from the work we did - and I went through the same therapy myself. I cleared my own psyche of complexes and Co-dependency, healed my body of chronic stomach pain and discovered my Inner Guides - for a complete mind/body/spirit healing - just like my book helps readers begin to do. Now I want to share this knowledge that there's hope, you're not alone, and it's fun to get to know all your different selves.

"Wayne C. Booth's memoir, My Many Selves, is both an incisive self-examination and a creative approach to retelling his life. Writing his autobiography became a quest to harmonize the diverse, discordant parts of his identity and resolve the conflicts in what he thought and believed. To see himself clearly and whole, he broke his self down, personified the fragments, uncovered their roots in his life, and engaged his multiple identities and experiences in dialogue. Basic to his story and to its lifelong concern with ethics and rhetoric was his youth in rural Utah. He valued that background, while acknowledging its ambiguous influence on him, and continued to identify himself as Mormon, though he renounced most Latter-day Saint doctrines. Wayne Booth died in October 2005, soon after completing work on his autobiography."--BOOK JACKET.
