"What I've learned as a psychotherapist, and the remarkable redemption of my own life -- which evoked new visions of human possibility -- drove me to write TROUBADOUR. I was compelled to share the inspirational potential I have discovered in every single human spirit, just waiting for deliverance from the oppression of misguided punishing human social habits. TROUBADOUR is a story of human terror and desperation, courage and fulfillment. It's also a utopian vision of non-violent human collaboration, which changes the way in which everything social or political is done. It's a post-psychology myth of our search for the heroic journey to wholeness -- which reveals what's possible from the best, most generous and creative parts of human nature. It's a story that exposes the Revolution that psychology, at its best is beginning to produce in our human experience. I feel confident that psychology, as a new philosophy will spearhead a Renaissance sometime in the 21st century."
