Robert Atkinson, Ph.D.‘s new book A New Story of Wholeness: An Experiential Guide for Connecting with the Human Family, shares how connecting with wholeness advances humanity.
Synthesizing his work in personal mythmaking, soul-making, and storytelling, award-winning author Robert Atkinson draws from mythology, mysticism, rites of passage, and psychology to identify a pattern within our unconscious that guides our evolving consciousness, transforms our lives, keeps our focus on the wholeness of all things, and keeps humanity on its evolutionary trajectory.
In bringing all the paths to wholeness back together as one, this pioneering, practical, and easy-to-use experiential guide provide the context, framework, and reflective writing exercises needed for telling our stories of wholeness. In doing so, we connect the human family, one story at a time.
