About the Author

Leanne Whitney received her PhD in depth psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, California. She works as a transformational coach, Yoga teacher, and documentary filmmaker. Leanne's professional papers include Depth psychology through the lens of Classical Yoga: a reconsideration of Jung's ontic reality and Jung and non-duality: some clinical and theoretical implications of the self as totality of the psyche co-authored with Dr. Lionel Corbett.


'Dr Whitney's book is an important contribution to those of us interested in the East-West dialog about the nature of consciousness. She has the rare gift of expertise in both Jung's psychology and Patanjali's metaphysics, and her text reveals the important similarities and distinctions found in the work of these two gigantic figures. Students of transformation will benefit by Dr Whitney's clear articulation of the ways in which depth psychology and yoga philosophy complement each other.' - Lionel Corbett, Professor, Pacifica Graduate Institute, USA 'Consciousness in Jung and Patanjali is a brilliant analysis of Western and Eastern concepts of consciousness, motivated by the author's personal experience that there's something beyond a materialistic brain-based explanation of consciousness. A deep dive into personal ego, impersonal awareness, dual and nondual realities, and beyond. Highly recommended.' - Dean Radin, PhD, Chief Scientist, Institute of Noetic Sciences, USA

'When Carl Jung studied Yoga traditions, he dealt with an abstraction, a relic of the exotic "other." With wide practice of Yoga worldwide, one can no longer dismiss its insights as inappropriate for non-Asians. Leanne Whitney's book updates our thinking about Yoga and shows its benefits to contemporary psycho-therapeutic theory and practice.' - Christopher Key Chapple, Doshi Professor of Indic and Comparative Theology and Director, Master of Arts in Yoga Studies, Loyola Marymount University, USA.

'This book is an important contribution to the East-West dialogue that Jung considered so necessary. Too, this book continues a tradition whose genesis may be attributed to a then young scholar of Jungian psychology who, in 1985, published Jung and the Post-Jungians. Andrew Samuel's seminal reference to the evolution of Jungian thought introduced many of the critiques of Jungian orthodoxy that are topical today. Dr. Leanne Whitney's book continues this tradition with a provocative inquiry that makes us reconsider the aspects of the Abrahamic and Enlightenment traditions that are impediments to actualizing our own higher consciousness.' - Robert Mitchell in the International Journal of Jungian Studies 11 (2019) 79-92

'The book hardly exceeds 150 pages in length, but its substance outperforms its physical weight by far. From a proper background of what is ontically undivided, it is Whitney's vision that a 'depth psychology-classical yoga fusion can yield a contemporary, and more lucid, understanding of the multiplicity of forms on the foreground'. I couldn't agree more.' - Harald Atmanspacher, Zurich, writing in the Journal of Analytical Psychology, 2019.
