    Therapy According To G-D by Rabbi Mordechai Wecker

    The Torah is "the Blueprint for the Universe." It is the "owner's manual" to life. Our mission is to learn G-d's Torah and strive to be closer to Him. Still, the Torah is even more than that. It is G-d making Himself known to the world. It has been our lifeblood for over three thousand years. It's what sustains us, keeps us alive, and gives us our sense of purpose in the world. It is eternal. It is also high drama. It is the story of relationships, conflict, and (sometimes) resolution. The Torah shares its stories to help us understand who we are and where we come from - and how we must live and grow and evolve, constantly improving ourselves, refining our character traits, and developing healthier and better relationships. Thousands of years ago and today, people have dealt with difficult issues such as anxiety, loneliness, depression, anger issues, family conflict and substance abuse. In this book, we attempt to show how eternal Torah principles can be incorporated into our daily lives - and how we can find healing and connection. Approbations: "Your fascinating presentation … has been a most enjoyable and informative read." Rabbi Zvi Teichman, Cong. Ohel Moshe, Baltimore, MD "The authors demonstrate how Torah principles can provide real-world solutions to common struggles in the realms of marriage, child rearing, emotional health, and character development. Furthermore, the authors' creative approach of alternating between rabbinic and psychological perspectives throughout the text, highlights the unique and wonderful synergy that is created when clergy and mental health professionals collaborate." Dr. David H. Rosmarin, PhD, ABPP, Director, Spirituality and Mental Health Program, Mc Lean Hospital, Assistant Professor, Harvard Medical school

    Meditation Is Not What You Think: Mindfulness and Why It Is So Important by Kabat-Zinn, Jon

    Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD, is professor of medicine emeritus and the founder of MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction) and of the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. He has written numerous bestselling books including Full Catastrophe Living ; Wherever You Go, There You Are ; and Mindfulness for Beginners , and iscoauthor, with his wife Myla, of Everyday Blessings: The Inner Work of Mindful Parenting . We think we know what meditation is--especially in an era when "mindfulness" has improbably rocketed into the mainstream. Millions of people around the world have taken up a formal mindfulness meditation practice as part of their everyday lives. But there's no hard-and-fast rule that says you have to meditate in a certain way, in a particular place, or following a specific tradition. So what is meditation anyway? And why might it be worth trying? Or nurturing further if you already have practice? Meditation Is Not What You Think was originally published in 2005 as part of a larger book entitled Coming to Our Senses: Healing Ourselves and the World Through Mindfulness. Updated with a new foreword by the author, these questions (and their answers) are particularly relevant for the current era . If you're curious as to why meditation is not for the "faint-hearted," how taking some time each day to drop into awareness can actually be a radical act of love, and why paying attention is so supremely important, read on for a master class from one of the pioneers of mindfulness in the mainstream world.

    Psychologie du yoga de la Kundalinî by Jung, Carl-Gustav

    France: Éditions Albin Michel (Collection Spiritualités vivantes), 2005 « Le yoga est une discipline spirituelle qui permet d'atteindre l'éveil en purifiant le corps. Il existe plusieurs écoles de yoga tantrique, mais celle de la Kundalinî est sans doute la plus surprenante. Elle consiste à activer les forces les plus puissantes de l'humain, décrites comme un serpent lové autour de la colonne vertébrale, et vise ainsi à accorder les principes souvent supposés contradictoires de la sexualité et de la spiritualité, en faisant fusionner leurs énergies au sein du corps humain. En octobre 1932, C. G. Jung, invité au Club psychologique de Zürich, donna quatre conférences sur cette discipline exigeante et alors pratiquement inconnue. Alors que la psychologie de l'époque était sous l'emprise grandissante de la psychanalyse, le yoga de la Kundalinî allait offrir à Jung un modèle qui manquait totalement à la psychologie occidentale : une description, à partir de l'étude symbolique des chakras, des phases de développement de la conscience supérieure.»

    La psychanalyse des contes de fées by Bettelheim, Bruno

    France: Le Livre de Poche (Collection Pluriel), 1976 « Contrairement à ce que l'on affirme trop souvent, les contes de fées ne traumatisent pas les jeunes lecteurs. Ils répondent de façon précise et irréfutable à leurs angoisses, en les informant des épreuves à venir et des efforts à accomplir. Tel est en effet le postulat de ce livre majeur où Bruno Bettelheim nous éclaire sur la fonction thérapeuthique de ces contes pour l'enfant et l'adolescent jusqu'à la puberté. Grâce à cet ouvrage, illustré d'exemples tirés d'un patrimoine sans âge, des "Mille et une nuits" aux frères Grimm, de "Cendrillon" à "Blanche-Neige" et à la "Belle au bois dormant", nous n'avons plus, nous parents, le même regard sur ces contes de fées qui offrent à nos enfants une chance de se comprendre mieux au sein du monde complexe qu'ils vont devoir affronter.» Un pli en haut de chaque couverture.
