The most persistent form of alienation in human beings is the fragmentation of their identities into separate and distinct parts, such as subject and object, mind and body, reason and instinct, and life and death. Plumbing the depths of this diagnosis, this book analyzes the spectrum of human consciousness and the similarities between therapies that attempt to reintegrate such artificial dualities. The therapies examined range from Eastern to Occidental, from Zen to psychoanalysis, from transcendental meditation to Gestalt, from tantra to existentialism. Practical exercises and a thorough bibliography accompany each chapter."La mas persistente alienacion del ser humano es la fractura de su identidad en diferentes partes separadas, por ejemplo sujeto y objeto, mente y cuerpo, razon e instinto, vida y muerte, organismo y medio. Arrancando de este diagnostico, este libro examina el espectro de la conciencia humana y el conjunto de terapias encaminadas a reintegrar estas dualidades artificiales. Estas terapias se inspiran tanto en Occidente como en Oriente, y van del psicoanalisis al zen, de la Gestalt a la meditacion trascendental, del existencialismo al tantra. Ejercicios practicos y bibliografia fundamental acompanan a cada capitulo."
