I have a couple of articles coming up. One will be about Soteria houses in Israel. Israel is completely changing their psy system into the model developed by Loren Mosher, R D Laing and John Weir Perry. A model that treats those in distress with total compassion, empathy, sympathy and humanity …

the president of the Israeli Psychiatric Association, Haim Belmaker, is on the board of Soteria Jerusalem; and the director of mental health services for the Israel Ministry of Health, Tal Bergman Levy, has voiced her support. Meanwhile, the Lasloz N. Tauber Family Foundation, a prominent mental health charity in Israel, has provided financial backing for the Soteria houses, and at a December 19 conference in Jerusalem, Sylvia Tessler-Lozowick, the foundation’s director, set forth her vision for the future.”

The other article will be about Eckhart Tolle and his book The Power of Now. Even though this was published back in 1997, and I had some interest in what the book covers, it somehow passed me by. Eckhart has quite a skill of describing spiritual and practical issues of psychology in extremely simple and easy to understand language. Up until now many of these matters have been obfscuated by mystification so I think this is a very important book and most important of all for the distressed and sufferring.
