There Are No Accidents: Synchronicity and the Stories of Our Lives
A woman is set up on a blind date with the same man twice, years apart, on two different coasts. A singer's career changes direction when she walks into the wrong audition. A husband gives his wife an unexpected gift--after she repeatedly dreams about that very same item.... It was Carl Jung who coined the term "synchronicity" for those strange coincidences, when events seem to conspire to tell us something, to teach us, to turn our lives around. They are the strange "plot developments" that make us feel like characters in a grand, mysterious story. How do we identify these coincidences as something special? How do we recognize their significance and use them as turning points toward a more meaningful life story? In There Are No Accidents, Jungian psychotherapist Robert Hopcke explores the nature of the human conciousness and the role of synchronicity--teaching us to examine our own stories, and tap into its power to strengthen our work, love, and spiritual lives.
