About “Psychology in the Light of the East”
This book offers a comprehensive view of existing schools and further possibilities for psycho-spiritual development. Students and practitioners of psychology will find useful perspectives and resources for development and practice of an integral approach. Those seeking self-discovery and healing will gain a deep, holistic understanding, enabling them to choose a method and a practitioner to walk alongside them.
Ultimately this is the story of the author’s search for truth—from the evolution of psycho-spiritual beliefs in East and West, to her own psychological development, spiritual growth, research and thirty years of clinical practice accompanying individuals in their quest. Margot Borden realized that the general perception and corresponding approaches to psychology were too limited. In some cases the full human element was missing and, in others, the spiritual. Eastern and Western models of Integral Psychology close this gap, offering wonderful and limitless possibilities.
Psychology in the Light of the East conveys a vision of human potential and psychology that transcends the borders of East and West and opens the scope for a multi-dimensional, pluri-disciplinary and inclusive theory and practice for psychology. The reader is invited to go beyond current psychological scopes of treating symptoms or simple well-being, toward an invitation and means for transformation from ego to soul-consciousness.
Psychology in the Light of the East is published by Rowman & Littlefield Publishers. ISBN-10: 1442260246. ISBN-13: 978-1442260245.

“A deeply insightful and powerful integration of eastern and western approaches to psychology. This is a fertile field that will yield profound possibilities for human growth and healing over the coming decades, and this book will be a leading light.”
—Brant Cortright, California Institute of Integral Studies, author of Integral Psychology and The Neurogenesis Diet and Lifestyle
“With brilliance of intellect, and with a palpable, compassionate heart, Margot Borden takes us, her readers, on a riveting journey toward the discovery of our true, essential self. Margot’s courageous and compelling words, reveal her insatiable quest for truth, as they dig deep and wide into the many fabrics of the “soul”, and they propel and empower each of us to think more, to feel more, to live more, and to be more.”
—Rabbi Pinchas Allouche
“It requires courage to study the intuitive psychology of the East with the contemporary rational mindset of the West. In this text, Margot Borden brings in conventional and postmodern approaches but integrates the transformative vision of Sri Aurobindo to present a glimpse of a greater psychology waiting to unfold.”
—Soumitra Basu, author of Integral Health: A Conscious Approach to Health and Healing)
