MEDIA REVIEWS
Holism, the mind-body reality of the human species, forms the heart of Borden's Psychology in the Light of the East. This historical, yet highly personalized, introduction to integral psychology blends Western rationalist traditions with Eastern spirituality. Early chapters describe the `origins and development' of psychology in the West and East, including manifestations of integral psychology-e.g., Ken Wilber's and Sri Aurobindo's yogic expression. Borden, a psychotherapist, an international public speaker, and an adjunct professor at Antioch University Midwest, expertly highlights the remaining chapters by weaving various threads of integral psychology together. Therapist-patient vignettes illustrate each approach and serve as a handy feature for both students and licensed practitioners. The `Timeline of Psycho-Spiritual Belief Systems-East and West' provides a concise overview of parallel and diverging directions over the past 2.5 million years. This text is a thorough examination and is most appropriate for those individuals interested in this form of psychology. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, faculty, and professionals. * CHOICE *
Psychology in the Light of the East is recommended reading for college-level psychology students who want to integrate Eastern thinking into Western psychology traditions, and blends philosophy, psychology and spirituality in a survey of these two diverse worlds and the areas where they compliment one another. . . .[P]sychology students and practitioners receive a clear exploration of how to tailor their approach for more effective client care and responses, and will find Psychology in the Light of the East a clear road map of approaches backed by real-world sessions and history alike. This book will also be helpful for individuals seeking psycho-spiritual healing and development as it provides a deep understanding of the many paths inwards and therefore, how to endeavour toward our greater potential. Very highly recommended. * Midwest Book Review *
"An extremely helpful and well-written guidebook of self-discovery and growth, both personal and spiritual. Dig in. There are gems on every page!" -- Stuart Sovatsky, PhD, author of Advanced Spiritual Intimacy and Words from the Soul
"A deeply insightful and powerful integration of eastern and western approaches to psychology. This is a fertile field that will yield profound possibilities for human growth and healing over the coming decades, and this book will be a leading light." -- Brant Cortright, California Institute of Integral Studies, author of Integral Psychology and The Neurogenesis Diet and Lifestyle
"With brilliance of intellect, and with a palpable, compassionate heart, Margot Borden takes us, her readers, on a riveting journey toward the discovery of our true, essential self." -- Rabbi Pinchas Allouche
"It requires courage to study the intuitive psychology of the East with the contemporary rational mindset of the West. In this text, Margot Borden brings in conventional and postmodern approaches but integrates the transformative vision of Sri Aurobindo to present a glimpse of a greater psychology waiting to unfold." -- Soumitra Basu, author of Integral Health: A Conscious Approach to Health and Healing
