Main Street Books is pleased to welcome back local author and psychologist, Dr. Walter Kania. He will be discussing his latest book, Spiritual Psychology: A Path to our Transcendent Self. Join us on Friday, March 22 at 6pm for the talk.
About the book:
In today’s world there is a New Science and there is an Old Science. There is an Old Traditional form of Religion and there is a New form of Spirituality. There is Quantum Physics (the New Science), Epigenetics (the New Biology), an Old Psychology and a New Psychology (Spiritual or Transpersonal Psychology). Each of these New forms tell us of a world very different from that in which we have presumed to live. There are realms of reality and impacts on our genes, bodies, and behaviors never before understood. The messages that emerge in the Old and in the New are very different.
