’I’m a huge fan of this book. Chris Mackey has blended his work on synchronicity with the field of positive psychology in a way that is informative and inspiring. Looking back, I’ve had many moments of synchronicity in my life’s journey – some after great triumph, others after great pain. This book has helped me to really understand what occurred and has taught me how to move forward in ways that will make better use of the future moments of synchronicity. As Mackey so eloquently says “There’s much to be gained from taking an optimistic perspective” and this book will help you do just that. Thanks Chris for your wisdom!’

Chris Mackey, a traditionally trained psychologist, explores his deeply personal journey, his own “hero’s journey” into the dark night of the soul. His exploration is richly sourced and offers a fine balance between providing sufficient explanations to make the profound mysteries of human experience accessible to even the most sceptical reader on the one hand, and on the other descending into the trap of explaining these mysteries away…he invites us to transcend the tired and limited attitude of “treating” mental illness, offering the possibility of Positive Psychiatry through synchronicity.
