About the Book
Imbued with insights drawn from modern psychology, Tibetan-Buddhism, Vedic studies, therapy, inter religious discourse and the deepest wellsprings of a thinking heart, Corpus Callosum written in epic form becomes an evolutionary scale for humans, a methodology for walking the spiritual path. It shows a way to coalesce immanent and transcendent, human and sublime, desire and illumination.
Corpus Callosum goes beyond Jung's quatrenio and integrates the Buddhist solution to the modern suffering of alienation and anomie by contextualizing Self, not to simply erase it – a vision remarkably consonant with trends toward holism in Western thought that go beyond psychology and uses meditation to unclog the Corpus Callosum to provide new insights into the development of creativity and healing the ills of society as well as to guide stress-stricken people in modern times.
