A woman is set up on a blind date with the same man twice, years apart, on two different coasts. A singer's career changes direction when she walks into the wrong audition. A husband gives his wife an unexpected gift—after she repeatedly dreams about that very same item.... It was Carl Jung who coined the term "synchronicity" for those strange coincidences, when events seem to conspire to tell us something, to teach us, to turn our lives around. They are the strange "plot developments" that make us feel like characters in a grand, mysterious story. How do we identify these coincidences as something special? How do we recognize their significance and use them as turning points toward a more meaningful life story? In There Are No Accidents, Jungian psychotherapist Robert Hopcke explores the nature of the human conciousness and the role of synchronicity—teaching us to examine our own stories, and tap into its power to strengthen our work, love, and spiritual lives.

Reviews:

"While synchronicity has gotten a lot of play in psychological and New Age circles, skeptics remain. Hopcke's lively, accessible interpretations of a plethora of real-life events will make their doubts difficult to maintain."—Publishers Weekly

"The author's deep love and passion for his work, with many illustrative stories, makes this book a gem in the field of human consciousness. An exceptional contribution."—Dan Millman, author The Way of the Peaceful Warrior

"There Are No Accidents is a fascinating, brilliant, and invaluable guide to those 'meaningful coincidences' that provide sudden glimpses of an expanded reality, illuminating our life path and connections to others, and helping us find our way in times of change and transition. This superb and practical book by a noted therapist is sure to become a classic, inspiring generations to come."—Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., author of A Woman's Book of Life and Minding the Body, Mending the Mind
