Book Description:

Where does spirituality belong in psychotherapy, and in our lives? Drawing upon thirty years of experience with meditation, spiritual practice, and the art and science of psychotherapy, Dr. Kenneth Porter demonstrates how spiritual practices and psychotherapy inform and enhance one another in helping therapists, clients, and all of us in simply living our lives to find our fullest, most authentic, and loving selves. Utilizing a balance of personal experiences and established psychological theory, this book is an essential resource for psychotherapists and patients, presenting a compelling case for spirituality’s place in therapy, and explaining in detail how practitioners may incorporate spirituality into their practice. But Apollo’s Lyre is also a crucial resource for all of us, establishing how we are all spiritual beings at our core, and revealing how spirituality reveals incredible possibilities for loving self-discovery and transformation in our lives.

As an alternative medicine student I love reading books that will help in my pursuit for knowledge. I have always been interested in Psychology and Spirituality is part of our lives. This is book is an in-depth, well thought out and researched book that anyone not just Spiritual Healers would benefit from. It teaches how spirituality and healing are often intertwined and the author has kept it neutral and without bias. This is must read for therapists of different disciplines as there's something for everyone out there. If you are a health enthusiast, you would benefit from reading this, irrespective of whether you are practitioner or not. The author combines linked concepts of different religions with reference to spirituality, healing and self-realization. A thought-provoking and informative book.
