Zen and the Art of Wholeness

Developing a Personal Spiritual Psychology that Will Transform Your Life

As a spiritual seeker, you are on a quest for truth. This journey to find your truth has many names: becoming whole, self-actualized, enlightened, individuated, or authentic. All roads lead to the same destination: your essence, being, true nature, or original face. Here you will find your source of meaning, purpose, and fulfillment. In our Western culture, our need for wholeness expresses itself through its greatest obstacle - the tension between survival and meaning. Resolving this tension is a large part of finding happiness and fulfillment in life. We need to achieve a harmonious balance between the objective goal-oriented world and the subjective intuitive world - a union between the mind and the heart. Much like the Zen tradition of pointing the way, author Charles McCauley points the way for you to navigate your unique quest for wholeness. He guides you on a spiritual and psychological journey that is, above all, a personal experience. By using a unique synthesis of Eastern and Western spiritual and psychological wisdom that addresses contemporary issues, Zen and the Art of Wholeness leads you towards discovering and fully experiencing the whole life you were born to have.

Shakti Rising

Embracing Shadow and Light on the Goddess Path to Wholeness

Winner of the 2017 Nautilus Gold Book Award! The wisdom of the Mahavidyas, the ten wisdom goddesses who represent the interconnected darkness and light within all of us, has been steeped in esoteric and mystical descriptions that made them seem irrelevant to ordinary life. But with this book, written by a respected cardiologist who found herself on a spiritual search for the highest truth, you’re invited to explore this ancient knowledge and learn how it can be applied to daily struggles and triumphs—and how it can help you find unreserved self-love and acceptance. The pursuit of contentment is an innate part of the human experience, arising from a fundamental sense of lack or inadequacy—all the things we believe to be wrong with us when we compare or judge ourselves. In our search for peace and happiness, we may find ourselves fighting the shadows within us, trying to repress or disown certain qualities, especially our anger, violence, discomfort, craving, and disappointment. But in order to stop this fight, we must expand our understanding beyond the dualities of good versus bad, right versus wrong, and beautiful versus ugly, and accept the parts of ourselves we’ve tried to deny. Pulling from Eastern traditions including tantra and yoga, and focusing on the feminine principle of divine energy also known as Shakti, this book bridges the divide between dualistic concepts and non-dual philosophy. By exploring the symbolism of the Mahavidyas (Kali, Tara, Tripurasundari, Bhuvaneshwari, Tripura Bhairavi, Chinnamasta, Dhumavati, Baglamukhi, Matangi, and Kamalatmika)—each with a veiled face representing a destructive quality that perpetuates ignorance and suffering, and a true face representing the wisdom that stimulates profound transformation and liberation—you’ll learn to embrace and incorporate every aspect of who you are. With practices, self-inquiry prompts, and stories from the author’s own spiritual seeking, this exploration of the divine feminine will gently reveal the source of your fear, pain, and suffering, showing you that when you allow those parts of yourself to arise and simply be, you can finally begin to heal, overcome your limitations, and open to the light and beauty of your true nature.
