The most important therapeutic capacity is the ability to be present.

PRESENCE - WORKING FROM WITHIN. THE PSYCHOLOGY OF BEING
- SPIRITUAL TEACHER AND AUTHOR SWAMI DHYAN GITEN'S NEW BOOK



"Presence - Working from Within. The Psychology of Being" is more than a book about presence, but a manual in the art of unlocking the Soul's Presence within the Personality. It is a valuable friend and guide to therapists and whosoever else realizes the importance and truth about humanity's need to align with its individual and collective inner journey."


 
Eric Rolf, American therapist, former consultant to John Lennon and author of the book Soul Medicine  


"A very insightful book".

Marie Soederberg, psychotherapist, Stockholm 



Spiritual therapy works basically because we are all one. In the depth of our heart and being, we are in contact with each other. We are in contact with each other in the ocean of consciousness. 

This book is an invitation to open our heart. This book is basically about love. It is designed to help us understand how healing happens. Healing is pure love. Healing and wholeness happens when we meet the love within ourselves.

Working with people from love, truth and wholeness is the psychology of being, the science of inner transformation. The psychology of being begins where Western psychology ends. It goes beyond Skinner, Freud, Jung, Rogers and Humanistic psychology.

The psychology of being is the psychology of consciousness, a psychology for inner transformation. It is basically not a question of psychology; it is a question of being. The psychology of being begins where we are and takes us to that which we can be.

This book is designed to help us develop our presence, so that our presence and intuition becomes a source of love, joy, acceptance, understanding, truth, silence, wisdom and creativity in the contact with another person.

This book presents a new dimension of healing with a base in meditation. Meditation is the way to deepen our capacity to be present and to explore how to bring the meditative presence and quality into the healing and therapeutic process. The underlying theme of the book is meditation - but not meditation as a static technique - but as the capacity to BE with ourselves and with another person in a quality of watchful awareness, acceptance and relaxation.

This book is written both for people who want to discover their own inner being and for those who work with other people and wants to discover a new love, clarity, depth and inspiration in their professional work.

The different topics of the book are combined with practical exercises.

SWAMI DHYAN GITEN, spiritual teacher and author, has more than 30 years of experience in individual counseling and in teaching awareness and meditation. He is trained in both modern psychology and in classic Eastern methods for awareness and meditation in USA, Italy, Sweden and India. He received further education in advanced spiritual psychotherapy at Institute for Spiritual counseling and Training in USA and Academy of Meditation in Italy.

Since he began to meditate when he was 15 years old, he has dedicated his life to the study and exploration of the inner journey in order to move out of his own way, to be in a flow, and to discover the authentic inner being, the meditative quality within, the inner silence and emptiness, the capacity to surrender to life.

Giten's first professional passion when he was 15 years old was to become an actor. After training as an actor, he worked as an actor until he was 23 years old. Working as actor taught him a lot about life and to emphatically understand the situation and life of other people, since acting is really a spiritual occupation. It taught him about spirituality, since working as an actor means to play a role totally, while at the same time as you know deep down that you are not the role you are playing. After working as an actor for a number of years, Giten began to understand that his early passion for theater was really an unconscious search for a spiritual discipline. When he realized this, he began to feel a thirst to work with people in a more direct way in awareness and meditation.

In 1982, when Giten was 23 years old, he was directed by the Divine presence in a trance session with the American trance chancellor Lin David Martin: "You have listened to your intuition, to your true inner voice, more than most. You have been searching for the contact with the Spirit for a long time and now it is beginning to manifest on the outer plane. You have been gifted many times in previous embodiments and now everything will come rather easy for you. I want you to put your energy into the lives of others, because you can".

His three creative areas to express the mysteries of meditation in outer form are teaching, writing and painting. His meditative art is internationally recognized and have been nominated for the international art exhibition The Florence Biennale in Italy, which is arranged in cooperation with The United Nations.

He is author of the book in Swedish Meditationens Sång - Om meditation, relationer och kreativitet (Solrosens forlag, 2001, available from Internet book store Adlibris: www.adlibris.com)) and The Silent Whisperings of the Heart - An Introduction to Giten's Approach to Life (2008, available at Internet book store www.lulu.com) and Presence - Working from Within. The Psychology of Being (2011, available at Internet book store www.lulu.com).

Recommendations, quotes and discussions of Giten's articles and books and its content are also beginning to appear with increasing frequency in magazines and on sites ranging from USA Today, the largest daily newspaper in the US, the US news site Newsblaze, Edge Life Magazine, a leading source for psychology, education and world transformation in the US, and Sentient Times Magazine to the large Internet communities MySpace.com, a large Internet community for young people,Wasteland, the American online magazine Alternative Approaches, Motivateus.com, MSN.com, Yahoo.com, newsletters of American High tech companies to small discussion forums and blogs focused on spirituality, health, art and literature.

On September 8, 2008, The American presidential candidate Barack Obama's campaign site Obama Campaign Today: An Ein News Service - The World's Leading International News Monitoring Service - also shared Giten's article on The Silent Revolution of the Heart - The Challenge for the 21st Century.
