Description - Feeling and Personhood by John Heron

This book presents a theory of the person, which does not regard reason, the consciousness of self or freedom as distinguishing marks, but "feeling". The author distinguishes feeling from its complement, emotion, and defines it as resonance with being, the capacity to be unified with what is present. He relates his approach to the theory and practice of a transpersonal psychology and philosophy. John Heron explores in depth the nature of feeling, and the imaginal mind as the home of intuition and imagery; devotes several chapters to learning and the idea that feeling and imagination are the bases of the intellect; considers how personhood unfolds through various stages; contrasts the constricted ego with the integrated person; looks at both the theory and practice of a spiritual philosophy; provides 100 exercises to enable the reader to translate theoretical concepts into personal experience. He relates his approach to the theory and practice of a transpersonal psychology and philosophy. John Heron is also author of "Helping the Client".
