Transpersonal Medicine chronicles the pioneering efforts to apply a transpersonal orientation to the field of medicine. Broken into three parts, it reviews the underlying principles of transpersonal medicine. Part one focuses on ritual as a means of cross-personal empowerment. Part two is devoted to the personal ritual, the process of empowering one's inner strengths and wisdoms. Part three is dedicated to direct experiences and issues involved in medicine. The book includes interviews with leading researchers in each field of topics.
