Toward Truth: A Psychological Guide to Enlightenment

Click here to see larger image

 

I wrote “Toward Truth” to offer the reader a radical psychological guide to recognizing and healing childhood trauma—both the extreme echelon of damage that the world recognizes as trauma and the other 99% that flies below the radar and is considered normal.   This book, however, is not a guide in the conventional “how-to” sense, rather, a guide in terms of stating clearly the psychological connections for healing that our world so often and so comfortably denies.  My purpose in this book is to side with the truth of the child, not the lies of the parents, and to trace the roots of trauma to the family. I strive to take the groundbreaking work of psychologist Alice Miller to the next level, and in so doing offer a vision of deep, permanent, non-dissociative hope.

  1. I’m a 65 year old retired nurse. I did 15 years as a psych nurse in a hospital. I agree 100% with your opinions expressed on u tube about psychotherapy and the system of mental health in the USA.. So here is my question – I had a childhood that was as close to perfect as you can get with out being on Leave it to Beaver or Father Knows Best. So why have I been pessimistic and filled with philosophical angst since I was 6 years old? Fortunately Ive have a fantastic sense of humor and a ton of creativity all my wonderful life so I still did enjoy a fun and adventurous life. but I still can’t believe in “god” , don’t trust my government an finally now that I am physically falling apart and in pain, I have no more enjoyment in life. My enjoyment and participation in life has steadily declined year by year since I was 18. Now at 65 I can hardly wait to die. I think humans are a greedy, violent,deceptive lot,compared to the rest of the animal kingdom. We’ve ruined the planet and are now looking for a new one. I want to exit ASAP.

  2. Thank you so much for doing what you do. In your recent video Breaking From Your Parents, you mention you only got a few hundred copies of that book sold. This was so shocking and sad to hear. After 8 or so years of following your work I had thought surely you’d have garnered way more support than that. I think it’d be worth purchasing my own copies. And I’ll keep sharing your videos in the hopes that your ideas will spark more useful insight for others with regards to bringing about self truth.

    You say that a lot of people criticise you for being pathological. As I’m sure you know, all new paradigms are considered as such until they become the accepted paradigm. I hope you never give up so that some day your ideas might become more widely practiced.

    • thanks emily! yep, i’ve only sold a few hundred copies each of these books yet my videos have been watched a ton…. maybe it’s that people read less, or the subject matter is less popular, or that people are not so into books and a video just requires a click, or it’s that the books cost money? or all of it? personally i love books……and i have a couple more coming out soon…memoir… sending greetings, and again, a thanks—–daniel
