YOGA & PSYCHE: Integrating the Paths of Yoga and Psychology for Healing, Transformation, and Joy
Dr. Joe Loizzo will join the dialogue with Mariana Caplan, PhD, MFT
Has yoga improved your health and expanded your awareness—but emotional and relationship issues continue to challenge you? Or, have you found psychotherapy helpful, yet yearn for further spiritual discovery?
With Yoga & Psyche, Mariana Caplan explores these two domains of transformation and how they complement each other, laying the groundwork for a new merging of the two.
“When we bring together yoga and psychology,” writes Caplan, “possibilities for growth are awakened within one’s body, deep psyche, and spirit. Together they form a seamless weave of insights and practices that are applicable in the yoga studio, therapy room, or amid the rush of daily events.”
Through original research, clinical findings, Caplan’s own experiences, and many practices, Yoga & Psyche takes us on an in-depth exploration of this emerging terrain.
