Are You Getting Enlightened or Losing your Mind?
A Spiritual Program for Mental FitnessBook - 1997
Lily Tomlin once asked, "Why is it that it's called prayer when we talk to God, but when he answers back it's called schizophrenia?" Almost half of all Americans claim to have had an unusual spiritual experience and as many more have had problems handling stress, anxiety and depression. In Are You Getting Enlightened or Losing Your Mind? Dr. Gersten, a practicing psychiatrist for twenty years, recounts his experiences with his patients to answer questions about the entire spectrum of human consciousness. A doctor of the soul, Gersten clearly differen-tiates between miracles and madness, spiritual emergence and men-tal emergency--as well as the everyday stresses that affect our states of mind. Dr. Gersten demonstrates how a spiritual practice can posi-tively influence our mental health and emotional well-being. His unique, step-by-step program of meditations, breathwork, and imagery for mental fitness will enhance your peace of mind, sharpen your focus and alertness, teach you imagery techniques for gaining perspective on your problems, and strengthen your core values.
