Sample text

Just because the analytic traditions first charted the emotional level does not mean that the emotional is the exclusive province of psychoanalysis. It is not that each school only addresses a particular part of our being, but that each school excels by its primary focus on one part, even as it downplays other parts of our being. It would be inaccurate, for example, to say that classical or contemporary psychoanalysis disregards the higher emotional or the body. On the contrary, psychoanalysis has made important contributions to the study of creativity and imagery.

Though the inner light seems faint at first, gradually it becomes brighter. Over time, this light shines farther outward and begins to illumine our way in the outer world, even as it is still easily overshadowed by our mental patterns and emotional preferences and habits. Indeed, as we shall see, it is our wounding, our unconscious defenses, and our emotional reactivity that are the greatest barriers to the psychic light. To fully liberate this light is a goal of integral psychology. This process of psychic emergence, of living in two parallel worlds or consciousnesses, is difficult to navigate at times.

It must be emphasized that each school is not restricted to its chosen level. Just because the analytic traditions first charted the emotional level does not mean that the emotional is the exclusive province of psychoanalysis. It is not that each school only addresses a particular part of our being, but that each school excels by its primary focus on one part, even as it downplays other parts of our being. It would be inaccurate, for example, to say that classical or contemporary psychoanalysis disregards the higher emotional or the body.
