Summary

Goes beyond mechanistic explanations of human consciousness to offer insights into the soul and the deepest concerns of human existence.

Psychiatry has eschewed the spiritual dimension in pursuit of scientific credibility. Yet psychiatrists are daily confronted by problems of meaning and purpose that neither medical nor psychological treatments alone can relieve. However, a new post-materialist science is emerging that understands consciousness to be primary and intrinsic to the workings of the universe. We become aware of this supreme reality through the agency of the soul, a source of love and wisdom that informs our understanding of what we are here for, helps overcome emotional distress, and encourages each person to serve life in their own unique and creative way. In these selected papers written over the last twenty years, the author shares his research into a superordinate spiritual reality that overcomes the limitations of scientific materialism and opens the way to insights of the soul, awakening love and conferring healing on heart and mind.

Dr. Andrew Powell is a psychiatrist that has held academic and NHS consultant posts in London and Oxford and specialized as a psychotherapist in analytical individual and group therapies, psychodrama, and transpersonal psychology. He is Founding Chair of the Spirituality and Psychiatry Special Interest Group of the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
