Spiritual bypassing-the use of spiritual practices or beliefs to avoid dealing with painful feelings, unresolved wounds, and developmental needs-is so pervasive that it goes largely unnoticed in our culture. In the tradition of the landmark work Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism by Chgyam Trungpa, Spiritual Bypassing casts a lucidly critical eye on our deeply entrenched misuse of spirituality, furthering the body of psychological insight into how we use (and abuse) our spiritual practice in often unconscious ways.
Robert Augustus Masters, PhD, is the author of eleven books, including Transformation Through Intimacy and Darkness Shining Wild. He holds a doctorate in psychology and is a master integral psychotherapist, trainer of psychotherapists, and group leader. He lives in White Rock, British Columbia.
