Psychotherapist David Richo explores

Wholeness and Holiness

How to be Sane, Spiritual, and Saintly

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Dr. Richo’s recent book, Wholeness and Holiness, guides us through a three-step journey to psychological soundness, spiritual wholeness, and saintly holiness. We have body-minds that can be psychologically healthy, but it is up to us to nurture this process. When we do, we feel wholesome, body and mind. We have spiritual consciousness, but it is up to us to be aware of it and act in accord with it. When we do, we feel whole, body and mind. We are imprinted with a calling to sanctity, and yet, it is up to us to be open to its heroic demands. When we do, we feel joyously full of grace, body and mind. The goal throughout this journey is to attain both wholeness and holiness. For this to be achieved, a person must work at all three.

David Richo, PhD, MFT, is a psychotherapist, theologian, teacher, workshop leader, and writer who works in Santa Barbara and San Francisco California. He combines Jungian, poetic, and mythic perspectives in his work with the intention of integrating the psychological and the spiritual. His books and workshops include attention to Buddhist and Christian spiritual practices.

The following is an interview with Dr. Richo about the
book by his Publisher, Robert Ellsberg, of Orbis Books…
