About

I am especially interested in working with people who see healing their wounds and problems as only one part of an ongoing effort to develop themselves as far as possible. This effort includes development beyond the personal into familial, community, global, and spiritual realms. Seeking to promote this perspective I am the senior editor of Textbook of Transpersonal Psychiatry and Psychology for which we won the Will Solimene Award for Excellence in Medical Communication. This perspective also values learning the accumulated knowledge of other cultures.
In doing so, I have studied spiritual traditions, particularly Hinduism and Buddhism, for fifty years. For the last thirty years I have worked with two indigenous medicine people from the Sierra Madre in Mexico, learning the ancient pre-Colombian traditions in Mesoamerica. I apply all these traditions to my clinical work.
In addition, I believe it is essential to be well grounded in our own healing tradition. I am Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, University of California, San Francisco where I have taught residents for forty years. I am a certified Jungian analyst and teach at the San Francisco Jung Institute.
