Insights from psychology and Christian mystics combine in these reflections on spiritual transformation

BennerDavid G. Benner, Spirituality and the Awakening Self: The Sacred Journey of Transformation (Grand Rapids, MI: Brazos Press, 2012).

This book discusses spiritual transformation from a psychological perspective, which traces the development of the self through four key stages: the body-centred, mind-centred, soul-centred and spirit-centred self.

Benner includes insights from Christian mystics, he considers the role of spirituality in human awakening, and he explores the importance of the communal context for transformation.

Appendices on the function of dreams for human growth and transformation and on meditation, prayer and awakening complete the book.
