This book arises from a rich and lively international conference on 'The Spiritual Dimension in Therapy and Experiential Exploration', which was held at the University of East Anglia in July 2004. The varied chapters - including contributions from the keynote speakers: Brian Thorne, Rev Daishin Morgan and Richard Holloway - explore the conference theme in depth from many perspectives: experiential, philosophical, theological, psychological and personal. Peggy Natiello, Person-Centred Counsellor, educator and author writes: a hearty welcome to a long-overdue acknowledgement of spirituality's crucial role in human growth, healing, transformation and wholeness. Ecumenical in tone, ''Spirituality and Counselling'' includes insights from philosophy, religion, counselling, and creative arts. The authors invite us to journey through new definitions and unorthodox experiences of spirituality that challenge postmodern facilitators of human development. In their effort to articulate the ineffable knowings of transformation and spirituality, they demonstrate amazing openness, depth, and creativity. It is a must-read for counsellors and others exploring the shifting sands of truth and meaning. This book will be of interest to professionals concerned to explore the significance of spirituality in their life and practice, including practising counsellors and psychotherapists, and students at Certificate, Diploma and Masters levels.
