Seeking to reconcile the split between our inner child and our adult self, eminent philosopher and religious scholar Jacob Needleman evokes the ancient spiritual tradition of a deep dialogue between a guiding wisdom figure and a seeker. The elder offers an initiation to a younger self, an initiation the author feels is missing from our culture. Rendered as a stage play, the conversation between the 80-year-old author and his younger selves unfolds, and an ambiguity emerges as to whether this is strictly the author’s internal dialogue or whether the younger self may be nurturing a rebirth of the author.
On one level, I Am Not I brings younger readers (teenagers and young adults) face to face with powerful spiritual and philosophical ideas. But as the book progresses, the dialogue delves into questions and insights that carry astonishing new hope and vision for every man and woman, challenging our culture’s accepted—and often toxic—ideas about humanity’s place in a living universe.
Recommended Discussions and Reviews of I Am Not I
For a wonderful, in-depth discussion of the book read Maria Poplova's review of I Am Not I on her site, BrainPickings.org.
Gospel Cruz speaks with author Jacob Needleman about the new book in a post on SFSU's College of Liberal and Creative Arts site.

This year's conference will be a dynamic, interactive group discussion hosted by EHI's Nader Shabahangi, PhD, Kirk Schneider, PhD, Sonja Saltman, MA, MFT, Orah Krug, PhD, Mary Madrigal, PhD, Troy Piwowarski, PsyD, and Suzan Bollich, PhD.
Erv Polster 2016 Keynote Presenter
- Nader Shabahangi, PhD:
What makes us human beings feel alive, content, loved? If it is connection (to oneself, one another), what is this ‘connection’, what is it made of, how does it smell and feel? Does this need for connection to feel alive, happy, loved get satisfied digitally? Humanly? Both?
- Kirk Schneider, PhD:
How to cultivate a sense of awe as both a counterpoint to and complement of high tech. Highlighting some points from a book I'm working on tentative title of the book is "The Spirituality of Awe: Challenges to the Robotic Revolution."
- Sonja Saltman, MA, MFT:
How we use technology in creative and innovative ways.
- Mary Madrigal, PhD:
Exploring the breakdown of and in the human relationship as it relates to the use of technology over conversation and how the use of technology offers a false sense of relationship and knowing a person via social media.
- Troy Piwowarski, PsyD:
The specific ways people reconcile the increasing speed associated with the digital age (faster communications, faster ways of getting products, etc.) with the intention of going slower when it comes to our interpersonal work as existential therapists and relational beings.

Opening Keynote Speaker EHI:9 2016
Erving Polster, PhD, master therapist and presenter, author of Gestalt Therapy Integrated, Every Person’s Life is Worth a Novel and From the Radical Center: The Heart of Gestalt Therapy, director of the Gestalt Training Center San Diego, has recently published his book Beyond Therapy: Igniting Life Focus Community Movements. He will be opening our Conference with a discussion via Skype. We are thus combining both the Human interaction with the benefit of the Digital Revolution. Erv is not able to travel but we will have his presence via a digital method that allows us to witness and participate in our topic: " 'Always Going Home': Human Evolution and Digital Revolution.'
"The paradox is that, while a concern with past and future is obviously central to psychological functioning, to behave as though one were indeed in the past or future, as many do, pollutes the lively possibilities of existence.”
― Erving Polster, PhD, Gestalt Therapy Integrated: Contours of Theory & Practice
