Autor: Kile M. Ortigo, William A. Richards (Geleitwort)
Beyond the Narrow Life seeks to ‘thread a needle’ by addressing profound themes elicited by psychospiritual and therapeutic use of psychedelics while avoiding merely ‘preaching to the choir.’ This book explores common topics that emerge during psychedelic journeys by integrating several frameworks, spanning evidence-based cognitive-behavioral therapy, Jungian depth psychology, existential philosophy, compassion and mindfulness practices, comparative mythology, pop culture, film, and scientific understandings of the cosmos. Instead of a dry overview of big ideas, Dr. Ortigo gently guides readers through an awe-inspiring journey that confronts the deeper questions and concerns we all face as humans in this modern time.
“I’d like to heartily recommend Dr. Kile Ortigo’s Beyond the Narrow Life to you as a unique work that offers a thoughtful and well-developed map and user’s guide for exploring one’s psyche – from preparation through encounter through integration into the activities of daily life. The field of psychotherapy will very much benefit from the availability of this material.” — David Presti
