Dance On Fire is an in-depth study of dramatic, spontaneous inner experiences deemed by many to be of a spiritual nature, ranging from the frightening to the exalted, and are shared by 'saint' and 'sinner' alike. Jewett has included information over a broad spectrum from traditional clinical viewpoints to those of revered spiritual teachers. The work is aimed at supporting both those who undergo dramatic experiences and those in the helping professions, psychotherapists and spiritual counselors alike, seeking to assist them. Dance on Fire offers a comprehensive and discerning presentation of the knowledge bases from psychotherapy and spiritual traditions. More than other books on this topic, Jewett's material presents a clear description of the process of spiritual opening and integration of this expanded energy state. For psychotherapists, Jewett provides a clear differentiation between spiritual emergence and psychological disturbances requiring more traditional treatment. Most important, this book provides an excellent guide for those on the path of spiritual transformation, especially is the transformation is tumultuous and unsettling. Readers also on this path will find their experiences are shared by many, and find validation for their own path. As a psycho-spiritual counselor, former graduate student and spiritual wayfarer, Dance on Fire has been invaluable, for while its breadth and depth made it a tremendous resource for my academic research, it also brought me to a much-needed awareness of some of the more disturbing places in my own spiritual journey, and likewise helps me to assist clients to better understand and more skillfully traverse their rocky passages.
