The Great Within
The Transformative Power and Psychology of the Spiritual Path
Han F. de Wit
A book for anyone who wants to understand the psychological nature of contemplative practice as a transformative process.
Renowned psychologist Han de Wit explores the psychology found in age-old contemplative traditions and takes us deep into the mind of the spiritual practitioner. Using Buddhism as a framework, and drawing insights from several world religions, he demonstrates how contemplative practices can open us up to our own wisdom and compassion. The result is a vivid illumination of the process of spiritual transformation and an important contribution to contemporary psychology and psychotherapy.
