A skilled physician and psychiatrist, LARRY CULLIFORD has now turned his gifted attention to the ailments of society. “Where is humanity heading, towards misery and destruction or a far more glorious future?” “How can people – as individuals – make a difference?” With commentaries on politics, leadership, religion, education, health and social care, capitalism, and art, these timely questions are addressed in this boldly reasoned work, which examines the human predicament in terms of both intellectual understanding, and deeply personal yet universal spiritual experiences.
A long-term member of SMN and of the British Association for the Study of Spirituality (BASS), LARRY CULLIFORD is a former Chair of the Thomas Merton Society of Great Britain & Ireland, and was a co-founder of the ‘Spirituality and Psychiatry’ special interest group of the Royal College of Psychiatrists. His ground-breaking and influential books include The Psychology of Spirituality – An Introduction, and, ‘Much Ado about Something: a Vision of Christian Maturity’. He has been a regular blog contributor to Psychology Today since 2011. Larry’s website is at www.ldc52.co.uk.
