To many of us, modern life is a headlong rush to avoid dark feelings that threaten to disrupt our lives at every turn. The primal wound is the result of a violation we all suffer in various ways, beginning in early childhood and continuing throughout life. Because we are treated not as individual, unique human beings but as objects, our intrinsic, authentic sense of self is annihilated.

The Primal Wound book. Firman and Gila integrate important material from diverse schools of psychology and then expand it with their personal touch.

Through analyses of Deianeira's stories about her past, this article highlights a female perspective on trauma and its disastrous consequences for the victim and her community. An open acetabular fracture as a result of blunt trauma is presented, in which the only indication was a wound in the buttock, in which early. definitive surgical management of the injury provided a good clinical outcome.

This is a marvellous book. It is that rarity, a genuine attempt at theory from the transpersonal camp. I say transpersonal, because the authors come from psychosynthesis.

This is a marvellous book. Psychosynthesis does of course have a huge overlap with humanistic approaches, but it is best known for its very early involvement with the transpersonal. The authors do not kowtow to Assagioli, but use his ideas in a very creative way, adding to and criticising them as and when they need to, which I personally respect very much.

Jonh Firman's "The Primal Wound" (with help from partner Ann Gila), is definitely not just another self-help book. The book is a gem, full of ideas from amny sources. The integration of them will cause transpersonal theorists to take a closer look at what psychosythesis theory has to offer. This book shows that it has a lot to offer because it is integrative and synthesizing in nature. This dynamic is part of the structure of Psychosynthesis and Firman's book proves that we haven't heard the last of him.

Argues that a primal wounding of the human spirit occurs in earliest human life that disrupts fundamental relationships and leads to anxiety, loneliness, and alienation; and shows how this wounding can be redeemed through therapy and through living one's life differently.
If you have suffered trauma and/or abandonment in the past and now have self-destructive patterns of behavior such as addictions or compulsions, this book is a must read. The book is well organized, written in everyday language, and is presented in easy-to-understand building blocks. A main concept is essentially how a non-empathic parent causes a child to split their sense of self into "good" and "bad" to hide the bad part and preserve the good part. Both become repressed, severely limiting the child's consciousness and numbing their life-experience. What is repressed shows up as addictions. The "healing" part of the book covers psychosynthesis, and re-uniting and accepting both the good and bad senses of self that were repressed; this targets the underlying cause for addictions. It also addresses healing the feelings for the parent/adult who caused the trauma through basically the same process -- the child had separated their feelings of parent into good and bad (e.g. idealization and rage); to heal, both sides must be acknowledged and accepted.
I am re-reading this book. I was impressed when I read it five years ago; but having progressed in my doctoral education, I find it more cogent than before. It addresses issues and conditions that are, sadly, widespread in modern and post-modern societies. A must for any psychologically-minded and compassionate person. This is a well-written, scholarly work: it is not a casual, pop psychological read; but neither is my experience of it that it is stilted, jargon-dense and opaque.
A lot of jargon and not a lot of practical advice. Its good if you really, really like philosophy, not so much if you want practical ways to deal with your past.
If you have lived your life in the adult world for any period of time, it's time you read this book. Take a look at your emotions and relationships from a new perspective! This book gives us insight into why we behave the way we do, and then suggests ways to integrate ourselves into a broader perspective that allows us to change those things that are making us unhappy.
I sent this book to relatives in the US and abroad, and I know that it is providing us all with great information to help us heal our lives and move beyond real unhappiness and discontent.
It's a psychology book, and is not a quick read. But it makes a lot of sense and pushes you along. The references to other work are helpful and useful as well.
Good reading!
This is a very triggering book if you have emotional abandonment issues with your family which led to acting out and addiction. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to work on their core issues.
Really great insights into healing the broken parts of us all. Speaks to and through various schools of psychology. Really great book.
Good information but a bit dated and hard read. Compares favourably to others of this era
An easy read with great information for those wanting to get to the bottom of the issue of addiction from a psychosynthesis point of view.
