Attachment, addiction, and the spiritual path. "Carl Gustav Jung described the addict's craving as a "thirst for wholeness." Grof, a pioneer in the transpersonal psychology movement, draws on her own spiritual journey and addictive experience to explore the issues at the very heart of that craving - the longing for spiritual identity and the yearning to know the true self. Gives a whole new understanding of addiction as a spiritual illness, as much as a physical/mental/emotional illness.
