The chapter called "Living in a Bigger Story" positions the role of the therapist as a guide at the crossroads where different dimensions of life intersect. This approach helps expand the client’s sense of identity based on their positive life history. We explore the meaning emerging from the challenges being experienced. The crossroads is where life's contradictions are acutely felt, and where overarching wisdom is needed to embrace the dichotomies of life without polarizing them. Soul growth is generated by the larger, more meaningful context in which immediate events take place and the deeper connections people can make under the circumstances. When we affirm that the client is worthy of love and belonging, it helps them envision their rightful place in the human community. The theme of the bigger story, such as the hero’s journey, is presented as an alternative to problem-saturated talk and getting stuck in a victim identity. Persevering on that journey takes the courage to face challenges imperfectly, and the compassion to apply loving kindness and spiritual generosity to oneself.

About the Book:
– Cedric Speyer & John Yaphe - (November 2020)
This book brings together the historically separate domains of mental health and spiritual awareness in a holistic framework called InnerView Guidance. Building on strength-based and solution-oriented approaches to therapy, the InnerView model offers a unique psychospiritual approach which can be applied in any of the helping professions.
InnerView recognizes the individual's need for internal cohesion between psychological growth and spiritual development. It is a principle-driven paradigm that foregrounds 'soul work' as a central evolutionary task. The book presents the core concepts and methodology involved in the alignment of ego with soul. Chapters explain the theoretical roots of the model, explore practical applications in therapeutic settings, and introduce InnerView as a rich synergy of psychotherapy and spiritual guidance.
Taking an original and cutting-edge approach, this valuable text will be essential reading for scholars and students, as well as practitioners in the fields of psychotherapy, counselling, life coaching, social work, and spiritual care.
