COMING SOON! The Definitive Book On Psycho-Spiritual Theory
“I was delighted to read Dr. Soutar’s book as it provides an insight into aspects of neurofeedback that are unfortunately much neglected in the numerous books published so far. I speak with at least some authority as I have been deeply committed to the field of neurofeedback for the past 38 years, have trained thousands of health care professionals and patient/clients as well. Neurofeedback tends to be intimidating to most ordinary people. There are plenty of complex textbooks for professionals some of which I have contributed to. Even the books written for the general public are usually exceedingly complex and focused very narrowly on what some of us call the high frequency protocols. Dr. Soutar has striven to open up to the general public what some call the low frequency or “deep States – meditation/creativity” protocols.
Furthermore, he has done it in a small, easily readable book. It is easy to get ponderously intellectual and complicated about neurofeedback. This is often done by people who do not understand neurofeedback very well and who have no or limited experience either personally or with clients actually working with this scientific art form. Dr. Soutar has an enormous amount of such experience and is a widely respected neurofeedback teacher of mental health professionals. He has a gift for making neurofeedback understandable and practically applicable for professionals and ordinary people as well. I recommend his book to those who want to get a solid insight into both the high frequency and low frequency protocols and why neurofeedback may be one of the greatest breakthroughs in education and mental health in our time. I and many of my colleagues and clients are grateful for this book and look forward to his next effort.”

About The Book
The Automatic Self provides a theoretical scientific foundation for combining traditional methods of spiritual training with modern technological methods of neurofeedback and biofeedback. In order to accomplish this task, this book explores the reasons for our behavior from the perspective of the behavioral sciences and neuroscience combined. It sees the reason for much of our suffering grounded in the automatic mechanisms of the brain and how they dominate us until we mature enough as social organisms to become highly self-aware and learn to direct and control them through positive effort. This book further offers to introduce the reader to the latest neuro-technologies that can help us transform ourselves. Through enhanced self-awareness training and the social accuracy that results from such training we can move into a life where we can successfully access the social resources we need to thrive as individuals and move beyond individual transformation and into the fulfillment of self-transcendence.
