Organizing retrospective 45

This is a post in my series on organizing ”between and beyond.” Other posts are here. This is a retrospective of what has happened during the week. The purpose is to reflect on the work itself. Here is my previous retrospective. Here is my next retrospective.

What has happened? What needs to be done?
This week, I finished reading Toward a Psychology of Awakening by John Welwood. Welwood’s approach to the psychology of awakening emphasizes practice in three domains: Meditation for the supra-personal, psychological work for the personal, conscious relationship practice for the inter-personal.1 The book represents a thirty year journey and is excellent. I will make an in-depth review of the book in a coming post. In the meantime, here is a compilation of my tweets from John Welwood’s book.

Welwood, Toward a Psychology of Awakening.

What was good? What can be improved?
Reading John Welwood’s book was well worth the time. However, writing in-depth book reviews take much time. To save time, I will start to make notes while reading.

1 John Welwood, Toward a Psychology of Awakening: Buddhism, Psychotherapy, and the Path of Personal and Spiritual Transformation (Shambhala, 2002), p.xvii.
2 Ibid., p.xviii.
