Anyone who aspires to explore the world of the psyche needs courage, endur-ance and skill. Because the psyche is a living system of such independent intel-ligence, convoluted logic and cunning self-defense that whoever seeks to measure and fathom it is faced with an almost unsolvable puzzle. At the be-ginning of the journey, on its surface, the psyche acts mostly friendly, harm-less and normal. But it soon proves to be exceedingly contradictory, confusing and unruly. The explorer who confidently and courageously sets forth to solve its riddles, to explore its depths and to organize its colorful facets, sooner or later runs into impossible-to-untie knots, impenetrable borders and dark secrets. To look these difficulties in the eye and still move on is the challenge posed by the psy-che over and over again. The reader of this book could be experiencing a similar situation. This book takes him along on the journey of discovery. It confronts him with the crazes of the psyche. With its demand that even the smallest of differences be taken seriously, the most sudden abrupt movements be matched, the complex sim-ultaneous events be watched closely and the state of not-knowing be borne. And it rewards the reader with the same gifts which the psyche bestows upon the courageous researcher. Gradually, the fog clears, and as the inconsisten-cies fall into order, the big picture is revealed. It is the picture of a living system which designs and organizes itself with great logic, love and humanity. So don't get discouraged if you get lost every now and then and don't know exactly what all this is leading up to. Surrender to the flow of the narrative, the thoughts and the insights. Let yourself be guided – just as we have to let our-selves be guided by the psyche into its own depths if we want to understand it fully.

For more than twenty years, Artho Wittemann has been working intensively with issues of the systemic self-organization of the psyche. For ten years he was first a student and then colleague of Dr. Hal and Dr. Sidra Stone, the founders of the Voice Dialogue method. He translated two of their books into German and taught Voice Dialogue for six years at the Center for Individual and Social Therapy (ZIST) near Munich. Then, together with his wife Veeta, he went in a new direction, which resulted in the comprehensive depth psychology of inner parts they call IndividualSys-temics©. In his first book, "The Wisdom of the Psyche", the basic concepts of IndividualSystemics are presented. Further in-depth research in his psycho-therapeutic practice and training seminars for therapists and counselors led to the insights and techniques described in this book. Since his early youth, the central interest of the author has been for psycho-logical and spiritual issues. The belief that all human experiences have a mean-ingful and describable inner connection, was the basis of his practical and the-oretical work. Artho Wittemann now lives with his wife in Sweden. They offer trainings, lec-tures and seminars in topics related to IndividualSystemics in Europe and the US. For more information, please visit: www.individualsystemics.com
