Polarity Therapy Workbook

John Beaulieu

Book Review by John Chitty

John Beaulieu is the ultimate Renaissance Man of Polarity Therapy. Therapist, teacher, author, APTA leader, scientist, musician, businessman, even champion golfer: what is left to do. Among his several books, Polarity Therapy Workbook (1996) is probably most influential for Polarity Therapists.

Book Review: The New Medicine

The New Medicine: Understanding Cancer and Other Biological Programs

Lars Peter Kronlob
Edition Esoterick, 2013.

Book Review by John Chitty

Polarity Therapists may be familiar with the “New Medicine” work of Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer, born in 1935 in Germany. His unique ideas are quite compatible with the work of Randolph Stone, specifically in emphasizing how health conditions precipitate from subtle mental to gross physical manifestation. However Hamer’s message contains remarkable additional insight in … more

Book Review: The Divorce Remedy

The Divorce Remedy, by Michelle Weiner-Davis (Simon & Schuster, 2002) was recently recommended by a colleague and fills a useful niche in a very crowded genre.

What I liked about this book includes:

  • Emphasis on the value of trying to save a marriage or relationship, even if it is in a difficult condition. I think too many counselors steer clients toward divorce, perhaps due to their own unhappy experiences in intimacy. Divorce has a … more

Book Review: The Demise of Guys

This new e-book is a fast tour of psychological issues facing boys and young men — generally age 35 and under. It offers many research-based observations about a mental health crisis facing this population which is losing its sense of direction and motivation to participate in real world activities like relationships and careers, due to brain (particularly within the nucleus accumbens and pleasure-reward circuits) and behavioral changes which are adaptations to over-use of online pornography … more
