The Road Less TraveledA New Psychology of Love Traditional Values and Spiritual GrowthN love and spiritual growth asserts that our unconscious is God and affirms his belief in miracles reincarnation and telepathy Peck's synthesis of such clashing elements he even throws in a little thermodynamics is held together by a warm and lucid discussion of psychiatric principles and moving accounts of his own patients' struggles and breakthroughs Harmonizing psychoanalysis and spirituality Christ and Buddha Calvinist work ethic and interminable talking cures this book is a touchstone of our contemporary religio therapeutic culture Publishers WeeklyKeywords MIND BODY PSYCHOLOGY SOCIOLOGY RELIGI A very insightful book authored by a psychologistpsychiatrist who reveals the secrets to fulfilling healthy meaningful and lasting relationships It really makes you see yourself and others in a different light as well as words and concepts we think we understand His hallmark argument is that we so often view love as a noun instead of a verb as something that just happens to us or doesn't happen to us instead of an ongoing task we must work atthat work that action is love In fact something I clearly remember is his point that when people feel as though they've fallen out of love it is then that the opportunity for true love to grow is at its greatest Not at all written in a preachy self help sort of way It's very interesting full of a lot of great anecdotes

Of open marriage and therapeutic sex between patient and analyst But because he is attuned to the nascent conservative backlash against the therapeutic worldview Peck also cites Gospel passages recruits psychotherapy to the cause of traditional religion he even convinces a patient to sign up for divinity school and insists that problems must be overcome through suffering discipline and hard work with a therapist Often departing from the cerebral and rationalistic bent of Freudian discourse for a mystical Jungian tone compatible with New Age spirituality Peck writes of psychotherapy as an exercise i This book is by now a classic in the field of psychology Yet it's written for a mainstream audience and goes through some of the basic tenets of psychological theory eg attachment individuation boundaries delayed gratification but does so through the lense of spiritual growth Peck is an excellent writer and fine therapist who is sensitive to the issues of spirituality The case examples and stories in the book really bring his concepts and ideas together This is a book that I would recommend to therapy clients who are wanting to understand how their religious beliefs are inline with the goals of psychotherapy
