This book is written with the sap of three disciplines- philosophy, psychology and physical science: the study of thinking, the study of the psyche and the study of nature. It comes from a lifelong engagement with the meaning of life, death and transformation for the author and for others, which has included a dedication to the mystic traditions in several religions. Professor Clarkson examines the transpersonal relationship, which permeates the work of creativity, healing, growth and dying - particularly in all the healing relationships of psychotherapy. This book is for psychotherapists and all others involved in the healing professions.
