At last a book in Nederlands! As many Dutch also read English, I thought that as there is not a Dutch section to this web site, that they might come across Claudio's first book in Nederlands here.

Dit boek is een ontnuchterende analyse van de vernietigende invloed die eeuwenlange mannelijke dominantie op het leven heeft. Naranjo is ervan overtuigd dat het patriarchaat de oorzaak is van wereldproblemen als geweld, economische ongelijkheid en racisme. Om te voorkomen dat dit soort uitwassen ons voortbestaan bedreigen, moeten we een bewustzijnsverandering ondergaan, waarin we onze vaderlijke, moederlijke en kinderlijke kant verenigen.

The Way of Silence and the Talking Cure: On Meditation and Psychotherapy
ISBN-10: 1577331400
Blue Dolphin Publishing
(March 2006)
Part I presents a theoretical and inter-disciplinary account of the classical forms of meditation. Chapter 2 tackles meditation from a trans-cultural and trans-systemic perspective, while Chapter 3 brings a similar perspective to bear on the issue of the subtle physiology of meditation and the transformation of the body in the course of the individual's spiritual evolution. Part II considers the common ground between meditation and therapy - ranging from a theoretical understanding of the meditation/ therapy interface to the formulation of a solitary retreat methodology. Part III, comprising a single chapter in seven sections, offers a panorama of the classical forms of meditation in the different spiritual traditions. The integrative attitude conveyed throughout the book serves as an antidote to excessively sectarian tendencies and draws attention to the fundamental issues that underlie well known and specific forms of meditation and psychotherapy. It will be of interest to seekers, helpful to people-helpers and an inspiration to those in social situations ranging from self-help groups to educational initiatives.

The End of Patriarchy And the Dawning of a Tri-Une Society
ISBN-10: 1569370656
Amber Lotus
(January 1998)
Pioneer transpersonal psychologist Claudio Naranjo challenges the basis of the patriarchal order and illuminates how it has affected our world and our lives. With unique insight, Dr. Naranjo moves the reader toward a fuller way of being that integrates the paternal, maternal, and child-like aspects of the person and of society. These essays emphasize innovative emotional rather than intellectual elements of human transformation.

The Divine Child and the Hero: Inner Meaning in Children's Literature
Gateways Books & Tapes
(March 2000)
Preface by P.L. Travers A Gateways Consciousness Classic Illustrated with drawings by cover artist Della Heywood. This book is an extended meditation on children's literature. Dr. Naranjo highlights the Hero who slays dragons and the Child who needs only to "be," not to "do." He discusses children's classics including Charlotte's Web, The Hobbit, The Little Prince, and others. Dr. Naranjo places these children's classics in the context of the great archetypes of world literature. In a special appendix to the Gateways edition, the author interviews Lloyd Alexander, author of The Book of Three and a fiction series treasured by young readers, on the sources of his inspiration. Published previously only in Spanish, this book will be of special interest to teachers, counselors, parents of young children, students of world literature, as well as readers of Dr. Naranjo's previous books on psychology and spirituality, the enneagram and personal transformation. "In writing this book, Claudio Naranjo has submitted himself to what the I Ching calls The Taming Power of the Small". I feel certain that his eight authors, whether they are in this world or in Heaven, will salute Mr. Naranjo for this perceptive essay.
