In this inspiring book, Robert H. Hopcke, a Jungian psychotherapist, explores the role of synchronicity in our love life and our work life, in our waking life and our dream life, in our everyday life and our dream life, in our everyday life and our spiritual life. Through interviews with people whose lives have been changed by some unexpected chance encounter, he presents us with a rich array of true synchronistic stories: a woman is set up on a blind date with the same man, years apart, on two different coasts; a singer's career changes direction when she walks into the wrong audition; just when he is feeling particularly alone, a man runs into a college friend at a remote outpost on an island in the South Pacific. Not only does Hopcke present these stories to us, he shows us how, by looking at our lives as coherent narratives, with synchronistic experiences the turning points in the plot, we can use the synchronicities we experience to lead our lives more meaningfully.

Review quote

"While synchronicity has gotten a lot of play in psychological and New Age circles, skeptics remain. Hopcke's lively, accessible interpretations of a plethora of real-life events will make their doubts difficult to maintain." "Publishers Weekly" "The author's deep love and passion for his work, with many illustrative stories, makes this book a gem in the field of human consciousness. An exceptional contribution." Dan Millman, author "The Way of the Peaceful Warrior" ""There Are No Accidents" is a fascinating, brilliant, and invaluable guide to those 'meaningful coincidences' that provide sudden glimpses of an expanded reality, illuminating our life path and connections to others, and helping us find our way in times of change and transition. This superb and practical book by a noted therapist is sure to become a classic, inspiring generations to come." Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., author of "A Woman's Book of Life" and "Minding the Body, Mending the Mind""
