The road less traveled and beyond: spiritual growth in an age of anxiety
The culmination of a lifetime of counseling, lecturing, and writing, M. Scott Peck's major new work leads us to a deeper awareness of how to live rich, fulfilling lives in a world fraught with stress and anxiety. Writing with the depth of understanding that comes with the seasoned perspective of age, Dr. Peck continues the journey of spiritual growth that began with "The Road Less Traveled," one of the most influential books of modern times. The journey to serenity and peace, Dr. Peck writes, can only be made with increasing self-awareness and social awareness. There are no easy answers for complex problems. The work of learning and growth is hard. And yet he shows us that there is a way to think with integrity, to know the difference between good and evil, to overcome narcissism, to love and be loved, to live with paradox, to accept the consequences of our actions all through life, and to come to terms with dying and death. With a unique blend of profound psychological insight and deep spirituality. Dr. Peck explains the compelling necessity to make the right choices in our lives, be they the personal choices that affect our own mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being, the organizational choices that affect the security of our families, businesses, and institutions, or the ethical choices that may affect the very survival of humankind.
