Barbara Harris Whitfield is co-author, with her husband, Charles Whitfield, MD, of The Power of Humility: Choosing Peace Over Conflict in Relationships. She is also author of many books, including The Natural Soul, Full Circle: The Near Death Experience and Beyond, Spiritual Awakenings: Insights of the NDE and Other Doorways to Our Soul, and Final Passage: Sharing the Journey as This Life Ends. She is a therapist in private practice in Atlanta, Georgia. She has been on the board of Directors for the Kundalini Research Network and was on the faculty of Rutgers University’s Institute on Alcohol and Drug Studies for 12 years. She also spent six years researching the aftereffects of the near-death experience at the University of Connecticut Medical School. She is a consulting editor and contributor for the Journal of Near-Death Studies.

Here she points out that people may bypass working on important personal issues when they have a spiritual awakening. This can be a trap. She defines humility as the willingness to learn. In her experience, this quality is essential for reaching the higher stages of human experience. She describes a four-stage process moving from conflict to commitment to co-creation with the divine to unity with the divine. This is a comprehensive system encompassing both the depths and heights of human experience.
