Informed by the author's personal experience of cancer, arthritis and tuberculosis over many years, Body and Soul is unique, unlike anything Inner City has every published. unusual in both style and tone, it is essentially a feeling-intuitive approach to physical illness, dramatically illustrating the symbolic attitude, individuation and active imagination with the body.
Body and Soul reflects a life well and truly lived in relation to the regulating center of the psyche, the Self. It is deceptively simple and straight from the heart: no nonsense, no footnotes.
From the Foreword by William O. Walcott:
"Amazingly, in this day of psychobabble passing for science, Kreinheder has written a supremely readable book (many chapters read like prose poetry) about the body and the psyche without it being 'psychological.' he understood that the essence of human experience is not psychological an rationa; it is something ineffable and immediate, passionate and panful, spiritual and profane, that must be both endured and celebrated.
"This book is a last testament of a dyning man, a man with profound insight -- but it is about life and living."
