Synopsis

In today's secular society, many people struggle with terms like love and happiness. Few consider that these vital concepts are connected with worshipping God, but we know equally that they have little to do with how much we earn and possess. Maybe the answer lies in relationships, but these can be changeable and troublesome. Is there a larger story we can be part of again? A framework within which our lives can make sense? Where can we get good advice? In the style of "The Road Less Travelled", Larry Culliford tells stories of his work as a psychiatrist. Through these, he shows us how to face adversity, protect ourselves and others from self-destructive acts and temptations, and grow in maturity. We have more than our own resources to draw on. Bringing together East and West, ancient and contemporary traditions, he sees his patients using their "wisdom mind" to reach wholeness. This intuitive faculty connects us again with the universe, which science and materialism have rendered remote and uncaring. This is the route to a new sense of belonging and a meaningful life. It is our path to emotional health, happiness and maturity. Much more than self help is involved.

Larry shows how, following this path, we will also be helping the world.

Dr Larry Culliford works as a psychiatrist in Sussex. He has written several hugely successful self-help books using the pen-name Patrick Whiteside (see: www.happinesssite.com). He was a co-founder of the Royal College of Psychiatrists 'Spirituality and Psychiatry' Special Interest Group (www.rcpsych.ac.uk/spirit). He is a member of the Thomas Merton Society of Great Britain and Ireland (www.thomasmertonsociety.org), the International Thomas Merton Society (www.merton.org) and the Scientific and Medical Network (www.scimednet.org). Larry refers to himself as a 'universalist' Christian. A churchgoing Anglican, he is open to the teachings and practices of many world faith traditions. He has studied with Buddhist teachers and has meditated regularly for over 20 years. Larry often gives lectures and workshops, for example on 'Spiritual Values in Healthcare'.
