Title: Finding your Way Home with Transcendental Progression
Author: A I Jordan
Publisher: Ayni Books
Reviewer: Carol Singleton, Queen’s Nurse, North Shields
What was it like?
This book was written by a professional with a background in psychotherapy, hypnotherapy and shamic work and an experienced Psycho – Spiritual Guide, aiming to provide the reader with insight into intro and inter personal relating, equipping them with effective techniques to follow a journey of self – improvement and integration.
The book is divided into two parts, the first covers the whole self, faculties and ego sub divided into smaller sections, and the second covers core – self and divinity, transcendence and world view. There is no index or references but there are worksheets throughout the book to enable you to explore the ideas discussed within the book as your work your way through it.
What were the highlights?
The chapter that I enjoyed the most explored “Ego” from the definition of it, through to the roles needs, patterns, programmes, project and transference, communication, changes and life balancing. It is the book’s longest chapter and in my opinion, the most interesting. I particularly like the view that “love is not about expressing emotions; it is about an inner attitude and the expression of caring. It is an attitude of unconditional good will”.
Strengths & weaknesses:
The way the various sections are subdivided can make the book appear to be disjointed and lacking a natural flow through the subject area but if you can ignore this, the book is, on the whole, easy to follow.
Who should read it?
Anybody who is interested in enhancing the quality of their life and exploring the way to their personal epiphany. It is certainly thought provoking whileproviding the opportunity to learn new techniques of self understanding and discovery.
