Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 146852397X, Paperback)This book is a 'self-help' guide intended for a readership ranging in age from fourteen to one hundred. Through a synthesis of spiritual, existential, and psychological approaches, the reader is provided with helpful, practical concepts about life and its meaning. These teachings are conveyed through the author's autobiographical journey, which is, in part, fictionalized, as it describes his coming of age in Iceland and journey to becoming a psychologist. Icelandic folklore, with tales of ghosts, elves, and trolls, is woven into a young boy's experience as he meets his spiritual guide. The spiritual guide describes to him how the universe is constructed and how he creates his personal reality within it. He learns about fate, free will and meaning, and how to avoid common pitfalls in the experience of love, anger, depression, and guilt. These spiritual and existential teachings, along with practical psychological concepts, help him overcome a lack of self-confidence and low self-esteem and come to terms with his sexuality. A reader familiar with the existential theories of the late Dr. Victor Frankl; the discarnate entity Seth, who was channeled by the late Jane Roberts in the 1960s; Neale Donald Walsh's Conversations with God; and Dr. Michael Newton's writings on life-between-life regression will recognize the influence these authors have had in the development and shaping of this work, which is a synthesis of their concepts in addition to the author's own insights, gained through his career as a therapist.
