Sandplay in Three Voices provides a unique and engaging understanding of sandplay - a growing modality of psychotherapy. Emerging out of informal conversations among three senior therapists, it examines the essential aspects of sandplay therapy as well as the depth and breadth of the human psyche. The book is organized into eight sections covering eight of the most important topics in sandplay - Therapist, Silence, Child, Mother, Self, Shadow, Chaos, and Numinous. Each section begins with a trialogue discussing theory, history and practice of sandplay in that area. The trialogues allow the reader to witness three senior therapists addressing and attempting to understand the many layers of each topic, and reflect their agreements and disagreements as they reveal their individual thoughts on, and personal experiences of, the themes they discuss. Each trialogue is followed by a set of solo presentations in which each author focuses on her contribution, and on the role of each topic in sandplay. Illustrated by original clinical examples, this unique approach addresses issues of concern to analysts and other psychotherapists. Its basic orientation makes it of particular value in the study, practice and teaching of sandplay therapy.

The fifteen plates of the Mutus Liber "the Mute Book," are well known, and this book without words is recognized as a classic of the seventeenth-century alchemical tradition. Although the engravings seem to outline an alchemical process in detail, their message is not immediately obvious and it really requires a commentary to make it intelligible to the present-day reader. Adam McLean's extensive commentary on this series of engravings reveals the Mutus Liber as a synthesis of spiritual, soul, and physical alchemy. While the entire secret of the physical process is not fully revealed in the plates, enough information is given to piece together details of a modus operandi/ indeed, modern French alchemists like Canseliet and Barbault have found great inspiration and hints relating to the physical work in the Mutus Liber. As one of the most significant documents of the alchemical tradition, this edition of the Mutus Liber will be appreciated by all students of the Hermetic tradition, for Adam McLean's fascinating and insightful commentary throws a penetrating light on both the spiritual and physical dimensions of the Great Work.

In this engaging and intriguing work, renowned Japanese psychologist Hayao Kawai examines his own personal experience of how a Japanese became a Jungian psychoanalyst and how the Buddhism in him gradually reacted to it. Kawai reviews his method of psychotherapy and takes a fresh look at "I" in the context of Buddhism. His analysis, divided into four chapters, provides a new understanding of the human psyche from the perspective of someone rooted in the East. After exploring the Buddhist conception of the ego and the self, which is the opposite of the Western view, Kawai expands psychotherapy to include sitting in silence and holding contradictions or containing opposites. Drawing on his own experience as a psychoanalyst, Kawai concludes that true integration of East and West is both possible and impossible. Buddhism and the Art of Psychotherapy is an enlightening presentation that deepens the reader's understanding of this area of psychology and Eastern philosophy.

Esta nueva interpretacion sobre la vida y la psicologia de Carl Gustav Jung, tan sorprendente como reveladora, se basa en la hipotesis de que en realidad el gran psicologo era un taoista convencido, algo que se demuestra a traves de sus cartas, aforismos y escritos. Rosen, de este modo, examina sus crisis personales incluyendo su ruptura con Freud y su posterior trabajo con el I Ching, traza paralelismos entre el mundo natural de su psique y el de la filosofia taoista, indaga en la integracion de los opuestos, examina conceptos como sincronicidad e individuacion y, en fin, postula como aspiracion maxima de su pensamiento la necesidad de liberarse del ego y entregarse al si mismo o al Tao. Estructurada, asi, segun el modelo del clasico Tao Te Ching el libro mas traducido de la historia despues de la Biblia esta obra acaba siendo una esclarecedora introduccion tanto al taoismo como al pensamiento junguiano, un imprescindible recurso espiritual para los seguidores de Jung y de sus teorias.
