Wilfred Bion once said, "I use the Kabbalah as a framework for psychoanalysis." Both are preoccupied with catastrophe and faith, infinity and intensity of experience, shatter and growth of being that supports dimensions which sensitivity opens. Both are preoccupied with ontological implications of the Unknown and the importance of emotional life.This work is a psychospiritual adventure touching the places Kabbalah and psychoanalysis give something to each other. Michael Eigen uses aspects of Bion, Winnicott, Akivah, Luria and Nachman (and many more) as colours on a palette to open realities for growth of experience. Bion called faith "the psychoanalytic attitude" and Eigen here explores creative, paradoxical, multidimensional aspects of faith.Eigen previously wrote of psychoanalysis as a form of prayer in The Psychoanalytic Mystic. In Kabbalah and Psychoanalysis he writes of creative faith. Sessions as crucibles in which diverse currents of personality mix in new ways, alchemy or soul chemistry perhaps, or simply homage to our embryonic nature which responds to the breath of feeling moment to moment.This book brings out ways that a sense of infinity interweaves with everyday life, at the same time it faces the destructiveness of life and human nature and attempts to work with it. Read these chapters and see where they take you. They are meant as personal support for your own inner work, touching nooks and crannies hungry for touch.

This book is an amplified transcript of two seminars on Kabbalah and Psychoanalysis given for the New York University Postdoctoral Contemplative Studies Project (2010, 2011). The additional eight part Appendix enriches basic themes and is almost a book in itself.'Now that Bion's work is becoming more widely read and appreciated, growing interest has increasingly developed over his later work, which deals with mysticism. This new tack seems to represent a radical departure from his earlier, more conventionally scientific writings. The Hebrew Kabbalah was one of the principal mystical texts that captured Bion's rapt interest in his attempt to align psychoanalytic concepts with strikingly parallel revelations in mystical writings. Michael Eigen has done an important service in presenting, on the one hand, his highly articulate and readily comprehensible rendition of Bion's mystical venture into "Transformations in O", "Faith in O", and many other of Bion's associated ideas, and their correlations in the Kabbalah. The result is admirable. Eigen is no stranger to psychoanalysis nor to mysticism, and this beautiful work shows it. I was pleased with his ease of demystifying mysticism in Bion and in the Kabbalah. We learn that each body of work deals with different surges in our daily emotional lives. This is a must-read book.'- James Grotstein, author of A Beam of Intense Darkness: Wilfred Bion's Legacy to Psychoanalysis'Michael Eigen, who in his previous writings opened windows to bold and thrilling connections between psychoanalysis and other methodologies, now lays out a brilliant link between Jewish mystical teachings (Kabbalah and Hassidism) and psychoanalytical theory. In this book as well, Eigen, in his unique way, interweaves a rational, intelligent and lucid analysis, with an empathetic listening to the longing heart. Here we have an extraordinary book that dares to draw parallels and show similar lines of thinking between the foundations of Lurianic Kabbalah, the Hassidic teaching of the Baal Shem Tov and Rabbi Nachman from Bratslav and the most complex theories that psychoanalysis offers today: from Freud, Klein, Balint and Winnicott, to the depths of Bion.'- Admiel Kosman, Poet and Pofessor at University of Potsdam and Geiger College, Berlin'Michael Eigen dazzles his students and followers with personal gems of wisdom, mystical tales, and charming stories. He fills them with spirit, compassion and with love meant to heal their brokenness and help them survive the inevitable catastrophic condition of life.'- Lewis Aron, Ph.D. is the Director, New York University Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis.'Michael Eigen's Kabbalah and Psychoanalysis is a passionate journey into the world of the soul, one that lives, breathes and renews the Kabbalistic spirit for our time. Eigen brings the Jewish mystics into dialog with the theory and practice of psychoanalysis in a manner that resonates with and transforms the reader's own psyche and spirit.'- Sanford Drob, author of Kabbalistic Visions: C.G. Jung and Jewish Mysticism

5.0 von 5 Sternen This Book Reads Like A Prayer 8. September 2012
Von Deborah Lowery - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I found this book to be exquisitely beautiful and full of hope. Michael Eigen has written a deeply personal and
prayerful book which inspired me with awe, reverence, and wonder, and it expanded my own consciousness looking at some things in ways I hadn't previously thought about. It made me feel brave. He shares his own awe and reverence along with teaching about Kabbalah and Psychoanalysis with great clarity, right from the heart of the matter. His heart.
Read this book slowly and gently, like a prayer. It is a prayer, suggesting new ways we might look at things and understand them that could be life altering and even world changing. If you knew nothing of Kabbalah, you could start here. If you know nothing of Wilfred Bion, you could start here. The extended 8 part appendix includes further thoughts and helpful explanations. This is a very personal rendering of teachings the author holds dear to his heart. A person could learn a lot on many different levels from this book, basic and more advanced. I highly recommend it to readers of all levels. This book will open windows one didn't even know were there.

5.0 von 5 Sternen like being plugged into an electric current 29. Januar 2013
Von Stewart Morton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Reading Michael Eigen's Kabbalah and Psychoanalysis is a powerful experience. At one point I was moved to tears and then sentences later shocked beyond tears, like I had been plugged into an electric current. For me Eigen's work, especially his latest offerings, have the spiritual vision of an intensified consciousness. But the metaphor of seeing with new eyes doesn't do justice to the kind of emotional impact his vision has: try getting a feel for his phrase "the wound that never heals meets the fire that never goes out".

If you are looking for something more practical than spiritual vision, no one can recreate the psychological insights of someone like Bion better than Eigen. Sometimes I get the feeling that Eigen knows Bion better than Bion knew himself. You will find him making new connections which bring obscure concepts into the light. Knowledge and concepts are rapidly condensed into these really dense and powerful and meaningful metaphors. They are like sparks out the other end of a black hole where the heart of stone is made flesh.

Eigen is always pushing at the edge of the possible; that's why his work fits with the Kabbalah so well- a deep desire to communicate personal experiences, some mystical, which by definition are beyond words. I always feel a speaking presence when I read Eigen's books, especially this book which is a transcription of one of his talks. I mostly forget what it feels like to be so emotionally naked, to feel such pain or such joy, but when I read his work I get into a state of mind, of belief, that with some effort which is faith, that we can open to this world. At the end of Ezekiel's account of the mystical vision of the chariot, a Kabbalist's key text, he says "I fell upon my face, and I heard the voice of one speaking". Fierce, brave, gentle, still.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Awe struck 19. Juli 2013
Von Joan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Dr Eigen's newest book has inspired me to reach out and convey how beautiful, moving and profound it has been for me to read.I am practically in awe of every word. My many years practicing psychoanalysis has included an immersion in Buddhism, and most recently included a journey in spirituality. This book has come along at the right time for me and is serving an important bridge. By the way, I do not believe that previous knowledge of Kabbalah is necessary to embrace this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Discovering A Path 20. Juli 2013
Von Merle Molofsky - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Michael Eigen, in his more than 20 books, has consistently offered accessible and profound discussions of psychoanalysis. "Kabbalah and Psychoanalysis" offers a rich and engaging discussion of mystery -- the mysteries that both psychoanalysis and Kabbalah explore, each in its own way. Eigen offers a way of exploring those mysteries through what they have in common -- which itself may seem like a mystery, until in reading the book, the similarities and overlaps are revealed.

Eigen begins by saying that the innovative psychoanalyst Wilfred Bion told him, "I use the Kabbalah as a frame for psychoanalysis". In this book, he draws on many sources, the teachings of psychoanalysts Sigmund Freud, Wilfred Bion and D.W. Winnicott, the Jewish mystics Isaac Luria and Rabbi Nachman, the Kabbalistic work "Zohar", and a rich panoply of world culture, including Zen Buddhism, the Chinese philosopher Chuang Tzu, and much more.

Eigen's scholarship is profound, and his language down to earth. This book is a magnificent introduction to Kabbalah, since he talks in depth about the Sephirot, or Tree of Life, the visual/conceptual image that depicts the flow of divine energy. It is equally magnificent in introducing the complex thinking of Bion, and offers an explanation of the essential ideas of Bion represented in Bion's grid, which is a visual representation of the relationships of Bion's ideas.

Basically, the book is a joy to read, and offers a path to vital knowledge, a journey through the mysteries of the human mind, and the mysteries of the created world.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An amazing inspiration and challenge 16. Juli 2013
Von Nunu - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Eigen speaks directly to your soul, to your innermost being. Since it is a transcript from a talk it is more accessible than other books by this author. You don't have to be a Jewish scholar to get this information!
