Psychology and Spiritual Paths (#S045)
While meditation may be ideal for some individuals, others with poorly developed ego structures may be harmed by engaging in intensive spiritual practices designed to dissolve the boundaries of the ego, according to Seymour Boorstein, M.D.. A psychoanalyst and editor of Transpersonal Psychotherapy, Dr. Boorstein discusses his transformation from a conventional--and athiestic--psychiatrist to a student of spirituality.
|"Most psychotherapists, including myself, I don't feel are spiritual teachers. But in the broadest sense, anything you do which helps the person on his spiritual path, you could certainly say would be a spiritual teacher of sorts."|
