#35 – Attitudinal Healing


Gerald Jampolsky, M.D. is an internationally-known psychiatrist and author. His 1979 book, Love is Letting Go of Fear sold millions of copies worldwide. Since that time, he has gone on to write a number of other books, all of which bear the hallmark of stating profound psychological and spiritual insights in simple terms that anyone can grasp. Perhaps, Dr. Jampolsky’s biggest contribution, however, is his founding of the Center for Attitudinal Healing, which now is known as the International Center for Attitudinal Healing, having spawned 300 such centers around the world. He and his wife Dr. Diane Cirincione also have a Love is For Everyone website. Dr. Jampolsky’s most recent book is titled, Forgiveness: The Greatest Healer of All. We close with a delightful piece of podsafe music, “Code Monkey” by Jonathan Coulton.

    Very nice interview. Dr.Jampolsky seems to be a very warm and kind guy.
    Nevertheless I have to say that his approach strikes me as a little bit “simplistic”. I’m generally all for providing ideas in the most approachable way possible, but on the other hand we shouldn’t oversimplify things.

    A good example of the category “simple, but very powerful, elegant and meaningful” would for me be the book “Lazy Man’s Guide to Enlightenment” by Thaddeus Golas.
    It’s short, it’s accessible, it’s inspiring, it works on so many levels, it’s funny, its laid back and so on…
    I know a listener of your shows recommended this book in a mail in one of your earlier shows, and I can wholeheartedly endorse his recommendation. Golas provides a kind of structure that fits many ideas, because his framework is so usable and adaptable.
    Often I read a psychological book and I think “Oh yes, these ideas fit in the framework of Golas Guide!”

    So if you want to know how the universe works from within, check out his book 🙂
