Compassion in action ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ram Dass probes deeply into the nature of helping relationships. He suggests that when we see deeply into each human being, no matter how desperate the situation, we are able to honor and learn from them. If we view ourselves as the "helper," we become trapped in the prison of our own self-image -- and this interferes with genuine compassion. Ram Dass' own path has led him to look for God in every person and situation. Following this path, his life of service has included working with refugees, with the blind, and with the dying. In this moving, two-part program, he examines the delicate state of awareness in which one acts compassionately for social change while also accepting the world exactly as it is

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Approaches to consciousness ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A series of four interviews conducted by Jeffrey Mishlove on problems of consciousness. In "The evolution of consciousness" Robert Ornstein suggests that the mind is composed of many subroutines that he refers to as a "squadron of simpletons." Self-mastery requires orchestrating these "simpletons" to work as a team. "The nervous system and the soul" deals with the dramatic, musical and mathematical qualities of the soul as they are available even to the mentally retarded and those with other neurological defects. Oliver Sacks maintains that our conventional view of awareness keeps us from appreciating the unique talents of those with Tourette's syndrome and other disorders

Memory, suggestion and abuse ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With regard to memory, the human brain functions neither like a computer nor a video camera. Memories, says Dr. Michael D Yapko, are more a function of reconstruction than reproduction. Many factors affect memory, and detailed memories, accompanied by strong emotions, can readily be obtained through hypnotic suggestion --even when such memories have no basis in fact. Dr. Yapko reviews the psychotherapeutic interactions that often lead to a diagnosis of childhood sexual abuse and enumerates various therapeutic pitfalls. Michael Yapko, Ph. D., is a clinical psychologist and author of Trancework and Suggestions of Abuse: True and False Memories of Childhood Sexual Trauma

Addiction, attachment and spiritual crisis ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Christina Grof describes her own struggle to overcome alcoholism and suggests that the impulse that leads to addictive behavior stems from our yearning for spiritual union. Crises of spiritual opening, she says, may often look like episodes of acute psychosis and are often difficult and even painful. Unlike psychosis, however, such crises can lead to higher states of personality integration. Christina Grof is founder of the Spiritual Emergence Network. She is author of The Thirst for Wholeness, and is a developer, with husband Stanislav Grof, of Holotropic therapy

D., is a research associate at Stanford University's sleep and dream laboratory. He is founder of the Lucidity Institute in Palo Alto, California, and is author of Lucid Dreaming and Exploring the World of Lucid Dreams
Psychodynamics of liberation by Kathleen Riordan Speeth ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Underneath the apparent separation of individuals there is a level of unity and interconnectedness. True liberation, suggests Kathleen Speeth, involves attaining an awareness of this level. In Part I of this program, Dr. Speeth enters into an intensive dialogue on the nature and meaning of liberation as viewed in both eastern and western traditions. In Part II, Dr. Speeth focuses on our tendency to sabotage ourselves -- to act against our own best interests. She maintains that a distinction can be drawn between inner weaknesses for which we may forgive ourselves and those inner criminal impulses toward which we must remain forever vigilant. Kathleen Speeth, Ph. D., is a clinical psychologist and co-editor (with Daniel Goleman) of The Essential Psychologies. She is author of The Gurdjieff Work and Gurdjieff: Seeker After Truth. She is a faculty member of the Institute for Transpersonal Psychology in Menlo Park, California
