Conceived by Italian psychotherapist Roberto Assagioli, who was a student of Sigmund Freud and colleague of Carl Jung, psycho-synthesis embraces spirituality as a key component of mental health. Dantes Path draws on Dantes epic poem The Divine Comedy (of which Assagioli was a devotee) as a rich metaphor for the challenge of escaping from fear-based instincts (Dantes Hell), into a place of personal transformation (Purgatory), then into the confidence of finding lifes higher purpose (his Pilgrims Paradise).With specific exercises, such as guided imagery and meditations, Dantes Path leads readers on a unique step-by-step journey for building an ongoing relationship with their guiding inner wisdom. The Schaubs have used this holistic method to successfully treat hundreds of patients for over thirty years.
