A Theory of Everything : An Integral
Vision for Business, Politics, Science, and Spirituality
Availability: Usually ships within 24 hours.
The spiritual intellectual Ken Wilber takes on the hottest theory in modern physics, known as the "M Theory," or the "The Theory of Everything." As Wilber explains, it is "a model that would unite all the known laws of the universe into one all-embracing theory that would literally explain everything in existence." Of course this new "M Theory" opens up a can of wormy, slippery questions, which Wilber addresses: "What does 'everything' actually mean? Would this new theory in physics explain, say, the meaning of human poetry? Or how economics work? Or the stages of psychosexual development?"
Being Ken Wilber, he couldn't resist answering these questions by folding the "Theory of Everything" into some of his own personal visions and theories. This overlay is presented in his signature straightforward, clearly written style. The upshot is that common readers can easily follow Wilber on a quantum journey and wind up with a lasting souvenir--a scientific and spiritual understanding of how the mind, body, soul, and universe all work together like a never-ending symphony. And that's just in the first four chapters. From there he shows readers the practical applications of this vision--explaining how it could lead to more integrative styles of business, education, medicine, ecology, and even how we address world conflicts. Wilber admits that this "holistic quest is an ever-receding dream, a horizon that constantly retreats as we approach it." Nonetheless, he can still take readers on an incredible journey--one that's well worth the price of the ticket. --Gail Hudson

The Spectrum Of Consciousness, Ken Wilber. One of my first quests after becoming familiar with heightened awareness was to bring order and clarity to my newly unfolding states of awareness. Realizing that my former maps of reality were no longer effective I was quite fortunate to discover this encyclopedic treatise by Ken Wilber. Wilber, the father of transcendental psychology, with brilliant clarity, depth, and synthesis explores the nature of consciousness through the seeing of the worlds greatest sages. This tour de force of the mapping of transcendental awareness is both brilliantly conceived and delivered by one of the foremost thinkers of our time. Anyone on the path of enlightenment can not afford to miss studying and assimilating the seeing of Ken Wilber. [Edward Plotkin]
XI -Always Already: "The Great Inquiry, therefore, when it is clean and
complete, results in a suspension of the image-weaving film that normally lies
between ourselves and Reality. When this suspension is total it results in a state
that Hakuin called Great Fixation (daigi), wherein all thought is suspended
and the subject and object become completely identified, marking the destruction
of the primary dualism."

TRANSFORMATIONS OF CONSCIOUSNESS: Conventional and Contemplative Perspectives on Development; Ken Wilber, Jack Engler, Daniel P. Brown. Harvard, Yale, and Cambridge trained psychiatrists in conjunction with the incomparable Ken Wilber explore and articulate a linear model of human growth and development. In this volume east and west meet in a carefully formulated expansion of the growing bridge between modern psychology and ancient transcendental wisdom. The value of this exploration lies in the authors in-depth experience and training in traditional western psychological thinking, and in their ability to expound upon the levels of consciousness from the Buddhist psychology and meditation levels. A grand tour of the growing synthesis between eastern and western paradigms of consciousness.[Edward Plotkin]
back cover: "Drawing on Modern Psychology And Psychiatry, as well as
the world's great meditative traditions, this book presents the first "full-spectrum"
model of human development--one that includes both the conventional levels of
spiritual development. Transformations of Consciousness is a powerful
work that could alter the future of consciousness research as well as clinical

Okay, Ken Wilber fans, you've waited long enough. The intensely private potentate of the integral path has broken his silence and published a year's worth of journal notes. Pull up a chair. You've entered the living room of one of the most intriguing spiritual theorists on the planet. He'll tell you a little about his work schedule, friendships with publishers, artists, and intellectuals, and you'll talk late into the night about bringing together the best parts of all the world's wisdom traditions. Hold on tight, though, because the conversational pace can be dizzying, bouncing from Nagarjuna to Plotinus, Derrida to Nagel, feminism to Zen, psychotherapy to vipassana. And this isn't just superficial soul-babble. Give it a while to sink in. Take a sip of wine. Move on to more expansive talk of higher states of being. Wilber will describe his own meditative experiences and how they relate to his revision of the Great Chain of Being. As daylight breaks, you'll gaze into the early twilight, wondering how you failed to notice all those hidden dimensions within and beyond an otherwise two-dimensional world. --Brian Bruya

"WE is unusually well written, clear, and most instructive in its content. It should readily appeal to a wide audience."
If you are unfamiliar with Jungian thought, you will find this book an interesting,
clear, and accessible introduction to a model of the mind and culture that can
be more personally sustaining than Freud's If you have ever been in love or wished
to be, WE is a revealing account of the profound meaning of the experience;
it is an exciting map for the journey to greater consciousness."
"For admirers of Jungian interpretation, Johnson's WE is a valuable contribution, a companion piece to Erich Neumann's Amor and Psyche, the classic examination of the role love plays in the psychological growth."
A needed look at why love fails in the West, March 21, 2000
Reviewer: Jim Lyda from
Having succumbed too many times to the call of romantic love (and later paid the price for believing it was authentic love)I found this book to be very helpful in understanding what was happening to me (or should I say what I was doing to myself.) The beauty of Johnson's view is that all the rich and wonderful emotions which arise during romance come from within us, not form the 'loved one.' This realization provides a sense of freedom and diviness which can be honored and brought forwards, in bits and pieces, into all of our relationships. I like the last line from the first review following: "The message here is that human love is attained when one accepts responsibility for his/her own happiness or unhappiness and refrains from living out happiness through another human being." Well said!
Clear and Concise Story of Love, November 28, 1999
Reviewer: mygotta from
Robert A. Johnson sets up a wonderful analysis of the Arthurian romance of Iseult and Tristan. Each chapter tells a bit of the story, then the author goes into a dialogue on the implications of the story. Also citing other more obscure examples to demonstrate what 'true' love is and what is the 'heat of the moment' love. Scraping the surface of some issues on social commentary in which some of the problems of marriage and relationships in general derive from out not-understanding of what love is. Robert Johnson's best work to date, as well as one his most lengthy titles (by comparison).
"WE retells the myth of Tristan and Iseult, one of the earliest romance tales, and uses it as a reference point to explain the essence and meaning of romantic love. Employing Jungian philosophy, Robert A. Johnson uncovers many of the unconscious beliefs about love shared by both sexes and shows how these attitudes are expressed symbolically in the Tristan myth. Lie then breaks down the illusions we often have of love myths in themselves and beautifully redefines what love should and can be. An elegantly constructed, superior inquiry into the psychology of love."
