VividLife Radio’s Kristen White welcomes author Dr. Allan Hunter to discuss his new book Gratitude and Beyond, an exploration of how gratitude is just the beginning of the journey of self-discovery.
Allan Hunter has spent his life exploring the intersection of literature, ancient wisdom, and the ways of the heart. His studies have led to him uncover the extraordinary power that exists within certain texts, ancient and modern, and to find the ways we can access that power in our own lives. He is a full professor of Literature at Curry College, a counselor, and his doctoral degree in literature is from Oxford University. Three of his books seek to show readers how to use writing as a therapeutic and life-enhancing tool. His other books have explored the way archetypes recur in the 3000 years of the western world’s great literature. He concludes that these archetypes are ways for us to contact the deep structures of the psyche. His tenth book, "The Path of Synchronicity", asks us to consider what it is the universe seems to nudge us to do, rather than what we think will make us famous or wealthy. He followed this with "Spiritual Hunger" in which he asks us to consider how we can feed our inner need for relevance in a mass culture.
His most recent work is "Gratitude and Beyond" – an exploration of how gratitude is just the beginning of the journey of self-discovery. Following a brush with death he describes how he learned, the hard way, lessons he needed to know so that he could live more harmoniously in the world.
