Coming Home – The Intimacy of Consciousness Exploration and Transpersonal Psychotherapy
Ingo B. Jahrsetz, Regina U. Hess, Judith Miller & Rainer Pervoeltz (Eds.)

The first common book of members of the Institute has now been launched as a paperback version by Cambridge Scholars Publishing.

In Coming Home, a group of transpersonal psychotherapists and spiritual teachers have written a book in which they tell of their own very personal and intimate explorations of consciousness. What has the experience of “coming home” meant to them? Has it meant connecting with God, the Divine Feminine, the Cosmos, the Sacred? Has it meant arriving at home in themselves, in their very center, in their essence? Where is home? Is it inside, is it outside or is it both? All world cultures have stories about this particular place. In addition to describing their own unique quests, they also shared how radically such a journey challenged them to face their own vulnerabilities and shadow parts. Various, very different and often startling personal stories are told. Through reading the very human trials and psycho-spiritual challenges that these nine international teachers have endured on their journeys home, readers will gain insights and greater understanding regarding their own explorations of consciousness. They will realize that the spiritual journey can have many faces and take many paths. The one thing, however, that all authors have in common, is the longing to be fully and wholly oneself. An open and life-affirming message to support readers on their own intimate journeys home.

Story of the month

Once upon a time there was a Chinese farmer whose horse ran away. That evening, all of his neighbors came around to sympathize. They said: „We are so sorry to hear your horse has run away. This is most unfortunate.“ The farmer said „Maybe“.

The next day the horse came back bringing seven wild horses with it, and in the evening everybody came back and said „Oh, isn’t that lucky. What a great turn of events. You now have eight horses.“ The farmer again said, „Maybe“.

The following day his son tried to break one of the horses, and while riding it, he was thrown and broke his leg. The neighbors then said, „Oh dear, that’s too bad,“ and the farmer responded, „Maybe“.

The next day the military officers came around to recruit people into the army, and they rejected his son because he had a broken leg. Again all the neighbors came around and said, „Isn’t that great!“ Again, he said, „Maybe“.
