More About the Author

Dr C WARTER is an American author and innovator, born in Chile, planetary citizen, Medical Doctor, Psychiatrist, Ph.D. and Transpersonal Psychologist, international lecturer, Emeritus Professor of International University of Professional Studies for his contributions to integral human development, essential development and integral health.
He has graduate studies at Harvard (Resident in Children's Hospital in Pediatric Medicine) and in Colorado in Family Medicine (Diplomate ABFP and American Board Psychiatric Medicine).

He coined in the seventies the concept of psychosynergy as a psychological notion to contemplate personal development through the Integration of spiritual values in human evolution relating to our souls journey and its responsibilities throughout life.

He has had close contact with many spiritual leader 's ranging from tribal chieftains to HH Dalai Lama, Pope JP II, Sai Baba , and he has studied Yoga, Sufism, Kabala and ethnobotanical traditions.

Warter's vision is unique in that it is inclusive, projected into the future valuing traditions of the past with respect yet realizing that destiny is being created in a singularly and mysteriously new way for each being and time of our species, which brings into place a non dogmatic, open, transformative energy that includes each individual and all into a free and new space.This requires deep inner work and a new understanding of the purpose of human life that separates his work from philosophical or psychological repetitious or theoretical explanations and requires a deep inner inquiry.

Warter is clear that we have completed a cycle of social and psychological planetary development and that we need to activate the neuroplasticity of new avenues of our being to reach a positive destiny of vital quality for the development of future generations.
through his work at The World Health Foundation for Development and Peace he received the United Nations Peace Messenger Award and was nominated to the Alternative Nobel, Right Livelihood Award, given to Edward Snowden in 2014. He was prefaced in his first book at the age of 23 by Pablo Neruda.

His methodology has continually evolved, from a time when training in entheogenic therapy was part of academic curriculum, to current time when it might be celebrating its return.
Temporarily living in Buenos Aires, Argentina with his family composed of wife ( Transpersonal Psychologist, Early Childhood Educator and currently student of Chinese Medicine) and four children, MD, Psychologist, Cinema and High School students. He is completing some books and teaching retreats and seminars.

He has been nourished from traditional psychoanalysis, to existential, humanistic, Transpersonal schools having been influenced by shamanism and its traditions who seem through meditation and ethnobotanical research to influence their return into modern ways of healing.

This book, more then any other I had ever read, provided me with the encouragement and hope that true spirituality actually existed and could be directly experienced. Reading this book and then acting upon it led me on the greatest journey of my life. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to cut through the myths of spirituality and get to what is real.

Reclaiming the Soul, Lessons in Soul Awareness is a remarkable story of the process of one soul rediscovering itself. Within Carlos Warter's life story we can see both the familiar and the inspiring. His search for his true self and his place in this world can instigate or remind us of our own journey. I heartily reccomend it to anyone currently embracing their own journey of soul awareness.

I don't write reviews often and in this case I feel a need to offer some details. First, I have read a LOT of books over the years about spiritual journeys of one form or other. This book is a journey more than a self help book. It doesn't give a lot of guidance and the underlying heart of things and the brief overview perspectives are what this is useful for. If you are looking for more details about each event, then probably better to look elsewhere.

It is a book he wrote about experiences he had and his interpretations of them. It is not something I would consider to be the end all be all on spiritual reality and in many ways I disagree with his conclusions and perceptions of what occurred and why. However, many stories are beautiful, moving and parallel experiences I have read about in other's experiences.

I felt like aspects of his thought process were new. Stories were useful in considering things I have read elsewhere. A lot of heart came through the writing which for me is sometimes what I seek most when looking for nourishment from a book like this. It is an international journey and multi-spiritual path journey. He covers Christianity, Sufism, some South American shamanism, Buddhism and a variety of new age perspectives. He doesn't go particularly in depth in any one arena, but the spirit of the people he encounters and the intuitive process through which he navigated his path was for me where the inspiration lay. I felt like I got to briefly meet many of the people he met and hear their ideas and share in the magic of their personalities. I liked it as a conditioning experience in that regard.

Dr. Warter's gives us his story of his life. Giving away all your worldly possessions is not an exceptional rule. You either give everything away;or you do not. I follow Maslow's idea that one has to have each of his needs meet before he can fulfill his other needs, but I also believe that this hierarchy extends to needeing to experience each of those phases of life in order to fulfill them. Hence the reason that people who have to struggle the most in life, often have the closest relationship with God. We can not find spirituality by seeking it, for it seeks us. Looking in a monastery for sacred reality is like searching in a mirror for a different reflection; see yourself reflected in everything and find sacred reality in it.
