For all those interested in mental wellness as well as mental health practitioners, this book makes the strongest case yet that synchronicity and other forms of intuitive insight promote wellbeing and help us transform mental health issues into personal growth.
“A profound introduction to deep concepts of mind, meaning and the challenges of creating a life well lived for everyone” Ernest Rossi, PhD, author of The Psychobiology of Gene Expression and Creating Consciousness
“I’m a huge fan of this book. Chris Mackey has blended his work on synchronicity with the field of positive psychology in a way that is informative and inspiring.” – Professor Lea Waters, President of the International Positive Psychology Association
Synchronicity is meaningful coincidence that connects our inner and outer worlds. This book reveals how it can guide us along our life path, helping us through challenging times and nudging us toward self-fulfilment.
Chris Mackey writes from personal experience, including 40 years working as a clinical psychologist with a particular interest in optimistic approaches to psychotherapy that are well grounded in science. His early adult experiences with mental health struggles and his ongoing work with patients have inspired his belief that synchronicity has a key role to play in helping us to tap into our intuitive and spiritual selves and guiding us through life. This exciting new approach draws on synchronicity in accordance with established principles of positive psychology to promote transformative change. Chris provides several case studies illustrating his transpersonal approach.
This title will be of great interest to practitioners and patients alike, as well as to anyone interested in a spiritual dimension to personal growth and the opportunities offered by altered states of consciousness.
The book includes:
• Carl Jung’s original description of synchronicity
• Real-life case studies
• Explanation of how synchronicity relates to positive psychology and brain science
• Practical ways to work with synchronicity, including journalling, symbol analysis and dream interpretation.
