African Unconscious in the News

Our August Book of the Month The African Unconscious by Edward Bruce Bynum has been in the news! Angelina Graham of Institute of Transpersonal Psychology recently wrote a book review for the 2016 edition of The International Journal of Transpersonal Studies.

Highlights include:

"For those interested in an Afrocentric approach to tracing the historical migration of dark skin people over human history, the intricate revealings in the indelible, African Unconscious: Roots of Ancient Mysticism and Modern Psychology, is a cornerstone contribution."

" .... Bynum points out the ever present widespread awareness of non-local neurological phenomena, such as intuition, as confirmation of the longevity of ancient African consciousness that acknowledges the same genuine lived experiences as various belief systems today."
