Editorial Reviews

From Kirkus Reviews

Small is a former addictions therapist now practicing ``transpersonal psychology,'' a New Age psychotherapeutic approach that combines a cornucopia of ideas and techniques. Here, with all due respect to the codependency and addiction theorists, she asserts that they have not gone far enough: They have labeled the problem, she says, but failed to offer a way to get beyond it, thereby instilling a sense of helplessness, shame, and defensiveness in some of their adherents. Small's aim is to outline a program of self-realization, beginning with the idea that codependency--giving away one's power to a person, an addictive substance, an organization, whatever--is not a shameful feeling but an impulse, however misguided, to ascend to a higher reality, an important first step in learning how to live and love authentically. Using the ancient theory of seven chakras, or energy centers, ascending the spine and influencing spiritual and psychological development, she explores the characteristics of each chakra, its developmental stage, its potentials for growth, its imbalanced codependent manifestations. Small offers a four-point plan for spiritually healthy living, composed of meditation, inner work (exploration of issues holding one back), study, and service (finding one's place in the world). Guided imagery exercises offer the reader the way to practice what Small calls ``heartwork,'' rather than simply processing these ideas through the mind. Many will find Small's contribution to the literature of ``new paradigm'' psychology compassionate, provocative, practicable, and refreshingly unpretentious. -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP.

When I impulsively bought J. Small's Awakening In Time over five years ago, I had no idea it would become (and continues to be) such an important vehicle of self-realization for me. The guided imagery exercises are powerful tools for growth, understanding and connecting with your higher self. If you are truly opened to finding answers to who you really are, I suggest this book for your unforgettable journey.

Ever wondered how psychology and yoga are related? I have. J. Small clarifies the relationship very well. Not much information is available on transpersonal psychology. On that subject, this book is the most comprehensive and easy to read that I have seen.

This book is perhaps one of my favorite books on personal growth and interpersonal relationships. It integrates many theories of psychology and philosophy to help us develop more wisdom, care, and true strength of mind. This book has helped me understand myself immensely and I am very grateful to the author for this. If you are into books that integrate theories as well as the various fragmented parts of yourself, I also highly recommend the book "The Ever-Transcending Spirit" by Toru Sato. It is a an incredible book that will enlighten you incredibly! Your life will not be the same after reading it!

This volume by Jacquelyn Small integrates psychological and spiritual approaches to addiction East and West. She looks at codependence as a spiritual crisis and presents an optimistic and encouraging path forward to people struggling with these issues.

I am a professional coach and I recommend this book to many of my clients along with WOMEN, SEX and ADDICTION (Kasl). Jacquelyn Small handles this topic with grace, optimism and a level head grounded in solid principles.

Format: Paperback
This book is spiritual roadmap for me. I use it all of the time now in my quest for self-development. It combines eastern and western thought and gives us a comprehensive understanding of ourselves. This is a great book to have if are interested in personal and spiritual growth. If you are interested in personal and spiritual growth, I also highly recommend the book "The Ever-Transcending Spirit" by Toru Sato. It is a bestseller among my group of friends and a completely enlightening experience for all of us.

Format: Paperback
This unassuming book is one of the cornerstones of my personal recovery process. I have bought several to give to fellow travelers, and always reccommend it for anyone who is "stuck" in their processes. Nuts and bolts information geared toward "ownership" of your life. In the forest of my recovery she is my naturalist, and knows whats hidden in every post and hole, and how to get it out into the light.
