Spiritual Versus Psychological Learning
by Murshida Ivy O. Duce and Dr. James MacKie
In the search for self-knowledge, one hears of individuals who claim to be gurus or spiritual Teachers. Such claims give rise to a variety of questions:
- How can I tell if a Teacher is genuine or false?
- Do I need a guru?
- Must I associate with a spiritual community or can I make spiritual progress alone?
- What is the difference between a psychotherapist and a guru?
- What is the difference between a psychic counselor and a guru?
- Since I am a westerner, is it appropriate for me to have a guru?
- What, after all, is a guru?
In this small volume, Murshida Ivy O. Duce, a Sufi Teacher for over 35 years, and Dr. James Mackie, a well-known psychiatric editor and specialist in psychotherapy offer a precise framework for understanding what it means to be a spiritual seeker in contemporary western culture.
