Paths to Wholeness
Fifty-Two Flower Mandalas
by David J. Bookbinder

Overview


"David Bookbinder is one of those awakened souls whose near-death experience gave him fresh and timeless eyes. He has taken that gift and poured it into Paths to Wholeness: Fifty-Two Flower Mandalas, using innovative photography and heartfelt reflection to surface and praise the mysteries of the inner world."

Mark Nepo, The Book of Awakening

Most of us try to be fully present to this amazing existence we were born into, and sometimes we can. But sometimes, we look for help. In Paths to Wholeness: Fifty-Two Flower Mandalas, psychotherapist, writer, and photographer David J. Bookbinder brings his capacity for inspiring personal transformation to his readers. Combining insightful, pragmatic essays in the lineage of Carl Jung with 52 award-winning Flower Mandala images inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe, David both shows and tells the tale of a spiritual seeker who, having traversed his own winding path toward awakening, now guides others to find balance, overcome fear and shame, build resilience, and to expand their hearts by listening deeply, inspiring hope, and loving more fully.

Keep it by your bedside, thumb through it as you drift off to sleep, knowing you are not alone on your journey.

Description


"David Bookbinder's Flower Mandalas contain both the shock of recognition and the delight and surprise of originality. They are flowers and jewels at the same time. They will enrich anyone's feelings about what a flower is."
Harold Feinstein, One Hundred Flowers and The Infinite Rose


"More than just an arresting coffee table book, 
Paths to Wholeness: Fifty-Two Flower Mandalas also serves as a guide for successfully traversing the hills and valleys of our existence. The photography is stunning and the short essays that accompany each image are drawn from David's considerable life experience, spiritual and therapeutic training, and innate and accumulated wisdom."
Lama MarutA Spiritual Renegade's Guide to the Good Life and Be Nobody


"Paths to Wholeness: Fifty-Two Flower Mandalas is itself a mandala - a symbol of wholeness. I experience David's nurturing each time I read it, feeling his presence as a fellow traveler and seasoned counselor. He encourages our growth as we move forward in our own journeys, healing our wounds and loving more deeply."
Lori Bailey CunninghamThe Mandala Book: Patterns of the Universe


"David Bookbinder's Paths to Wholeness: Fifty-Two Flower Mandalas is an invitation to join him on a journey of exploration into the deepest levels of being."
Barry M. Panter, MD, Creativity & Madness Conferences


"The words compelling, engaging, moving, and powerful only hint at the profound gifts contained in this beautifully written, authentic and unusual memoir / photography / mandala book. It is almost too rich to take it all in, in one or two sit-tings. Savor each essay and take time to absorb the richness of this collection."
Joan Klagsbrun, The Focusing Institute
