Selections from The Light Inside the Dark: Zen, Soul, and the Spiritual Life:

Part One
Part Two
Part Three

John Tarrant

John Tarrant is a psychotherapist and director of Zen training.  Born in Tasmania, his first spiritual interests were eclectic, shaped by English literature, the Latin mass, and Australian Aboriginal culture. 

A student of Buddhism who has trained in several major
traditions, Mr. Tarrant is a lineage holder in Zen and teaches
extensively in both the United States and Australia. In addition, he holds a Ph.D. in psychology and practices Jungian psychotherapy with a special interest in healing and the arts. 

The Light Inside the Dark

In this book, Zen teacher and Jungian psychotherapist John Tarrant brings together ancient Eastern traditions and the Western view of the soul to offer a new understanding of our inner landscape. 

The Light Inside the Dark (review or buy) shows us how we can look into our darkest experiences and find the sources of joy there. In leading us on the journey of the interior life -- the part of us that lies below the everyday life of work, family, and the physical world -- Mr. Tarrant shows how we can overcome the dichotomies of inner and outer, light and dark.
