I noticed that there was a call on this site to list our books in depth psychology.

(1). In the 1980's I developed the Mythic Journey Process which integrated Gendlin's Focusing with Archetypal Psychology; in the 1990's I added Tai Chi/Qigong to this process to integrate movement. This process has appeared in three of my publications.

(2) The Mystery of Personal Identity (1983) was the first book to integrate astrology with depth psychotherapy and introduce a hermeneutic perspective to astrology. It was just updated in 2012. 

(3) Trials of the Heart: Healing the Wounds of Intimacy (1993) includes a depth psychology perspective on couples therapy, and shows how relationship is a rite of initiation through the elements of fire earth, air, and water. 

(4). Bodymind Healing Psychotherapy (2007) was the first book to integrate Qigong with depth psychotherapy.

(5) Energy Psychology: Self Healing Methods for Bodymind Health (North Atlantic/Random House 2009), expanded the field of energy psychology to include depth psychotherapy.

(6) The Path of the Reluctant Metaphysician: Stories and Practices for Troubled Times (2012), is the story of my journey integrating of depth psychology, astrology, Qigong/Tai Chi, and metaphysics. I'm humbled that it just won a Ben Franklin Award in the Body, Mind & Spirit category. 

I'm open to dialoguing with anyone from this list about any of my publications and how it fits with your work in depth psychology.
