Compassion in action( Visual )

5 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in English and held by 189 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

A guide to rational thinking( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Working to change your personal philosophy is a valid therapeutic technique -- one which can lead to genuine growth. Behavior, emotion and cognition, says Albert Ellis, are all interrelated. He tells us how to recognize irrational belief patterns based on "musts" and "shoulds." He then presents methods for self-analysis and therapy. Dr. Ellis discusses and demonstrates the modeling approach, the use of humor, the use of cognitive homework, unconditional acceptance of clients, the use of strong language and dealing with low frustration tolerance. In a moving manner, he also describes the application of these principles in his own life experience. (A program in two parts) Born in 1913, Albert Ellis, Ph.D., is one of the most influential figures in the history of psychology. He is author of over 600 academic papers and more than 50 books including A Guide to Rational Living, How to Live with a Neurotic, Humanistic Psychotherapy, The Art and Science of Love and Sex Without Guilt. Dr. Ellis is considered the grandfather of cognitive behavior therapy, the founder of Rational-Emotive Therapy (RET) and one of the architects of the sexual revolution

She emphasizes the importance of not imposing one's own interpretations upon the dreamer. Suggesting that dreams afford us an opportunity to face our inner fears, in the hour-long second part of this program, she discusses the question of spiritual experiences in dreams and talks about the dreams of various gurus and spiritual teachers. She amplifies on the details of her dream interviewing method and demonstrates the method by working with Jeffrey Mishlove to interpret one of his dreams.

Approaches to consciousness( Visual )

4 editions published between 1992 and 2007 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A series of four interviews conducted by Jeffrey Mishlove on problems 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. Arnold Mindell discusses the unique methods he has developed for working with individuals in comatose states. Using the techniques of "process psychology" he is able to find channels into the minds of comatose individuals that allow him to establish communication. Irvin D. Yalom discusses his novel When Nietzsche wept, which highlights the existential issues of human consciousness which are the basis of his own therapeutic approach. The soul-searching self-examination of the philosopher Nietzsche is contrasted with the methodical approach of Joseph Breuer, a renowned physician and pioneer psychotherapist
