Danesh-e Tandorosti Institute is the first institute which started publishing translated and affiliated books on psychosomatic medicine under the name of “Dehkadeh Salamat book series” since 2003. As the need for a specialized publication in this area was felt, DTI established Dehkadeh Salamat publication from 2013. The books are published cooperatively with Psychosomatic Research Center of Isfahan University of Medical Sciences. Some of the published books are as follow:

Energetic approaches to health; Methodological & clinical bases of Reiki

Reza Johari Fard

Reza abdollahi

editor: Farzad Gol

Asim Publication

an excerpt from the book:

 

In recent years, you find few people who have not directly or indirectly experienced or at least have not heard about energy healing. However, unfortunately neither health experts nor people do have a definite explanation or a clear position towards it.

The present book is the first written book published in Iran which explores scientific and clinical basis of bioenergy healing and aims at answering questions asked by experts, researchers, and those interested in the subject.

In addition to explaining physical and physiological basis of bioenergy fields, philosophical, anthropological, and psychological aspects of energetic approaches are explained in the present book.

This research is a step to integrate this popular and effective approach of healing and health into the delivery health system.

Naught is naughting here

Farzad Gol

Asim Publication

 

From the back cover:

Is there a way for consciousness to be out of the realm of signs? Do we have instruments other than ideas to explore the truth?

This study is a journey to the dark realm of being and verbal and iconic signs; a journey that brings us only to its doorway; a world that no idea, but sheer consciousness have entrance to, where nothing except voiceless songs remain.

Wise men of each era only could guide people to this realm in a paradoxical, complicated, and vague language; the language that strangers probably find disturbed and senseless, the language elusive of language which realizes meaning in your presence and not in illusion.

an excerpt from the book:

The law of survival of things and names:

Things and names neither appear nor disappear, but transforms from one kind or shape to another.

To examine this principle, flip through a history book. Do you see anything but names and things transformed to each other and to other names and things? Did battles start for something other than names and things?

Human beings die but names and things remain and this opposes to common belief and desire for immortality. This is the nomos of world of negligence and law of perception at thing-level. As long as you want to guarantee your law of survival by names and things, you are following this law. If one calls this moment of human condition as deterministic and tragic, I will not against him. If God is found dead on his thrown and requiems are said for his corpse, I will do the same and if human death – subject – is announced, I would not be surprised at all; this moment is the moment of his deadness which made the world in such a form.

One bridge; 33 contemplations

From symbology to ontology of the imagination

Farzad Gol

Asim Publication

 

From the back cover:

This book is a rereading of Esfahan philosophical school of thought; not reading of words lined in lines of books and essays, but reading the veils hidden in the arches, pathways, and vaults of 33-bridge in Esfahan to enter this mysterious text which now and then allows you to pass, sometimes embraces you, and sometimes sits beholding you.

 

an excerpt from the book:

I now talk about 33-bridge since I think of it as panacea for today’s sick disharmonious world; a world in which minds are joined to each other through thousands of connections but souls are elusive of each other and psyches are withered and foreworn.

Our today’s bridges are extensions void of fantasy which only let uproarious bulged minds and bodies pass; extensions which do not connect hearts to each other.

Theme therapy: An essay on psychology and methodology of music-therapy

Reza Johari Fard

foreword from Farzad Gol

Asim Publication

an excerpt from the book:

The effectiveness of various variables of music-therapy on body and mind has been widely studied and its efficacy as a controllable factor to heighten health is confirmed. However, this approach is still a general qualitative method based on therapist-client rapport, which by no means is its weakness due to changes in philosophy and methodology of health care, especially in the recent two decades.

Glancing at educational programs of music-therapy in various universities, either an analytical or a synthetic trend is seen. Some tend to analyze the rejoicing elements of the music like a widespread formulae of a tricyclic antidepressant. In contrast, some others focus more on the general and statistical effects of the melodies and prescribe it on an anthological-deductive basis rather on a complete deductive one.

Theme-therapy method of Johari Fard is of the first one in which recognition of music themes – and of course – life themes have an anthological basis and is also researched in standard and methodological studies. This intervening method in the discourse of psychology is familiar and is rooted in old times. Many of the major approaches of psychotherapy, such as psychoanalysis, has a philosophical and anthological basis which has been examined by clinical tests

Time of witnessing: A report of the inner demography

Farzad Gol

Asim Publication

 

From the back cover:

Time of witnessing is a poetical research in what simply is named “I”; although it is hardly in this state and is more “he/she”, “they”, “you-s”, “you”, and sometimes “we”.

This is an alchemical effort to blend colors of psyche against dissociative raid of time to bring about colorless color without colorful world being disappeared by colorless world.

 

an excerpt from the book:

… Here,

There exist ideas and states which art thou.

Now thou rememberst,

Thine futile wanderings in heavens

Where thou wert in search of thine star in vain,

A lonely star

Secluded in a corner of cosmos.

Thou art not a part of the world

But a time of it

An introduction to life-oriented medicine; four essays on philosophy of medicine

Farzad Goli

Dehkadeh-salamat Publication

 

From the back cover:

One characteristic of knowledge transition from one era to another is that commencement of idea development in the basis of the science is invited. When abnormalities in a normal science become abundant and insufficiencies of that paradigm emerges as uncompensable and unjustifiable, its followers become more philosophical since until the emergence and establishment of the new paradigms, research methods and related fields have to be re-explored. In this transition, new questions, methods, and interventions emerge. Now, we are in such a transition era and this book includes contemplations on today’s medicine epistemology and cosmology and seeks for remedies to find out how medicine, a categorical and objective science, can be brought back to the evolutionary quantitative world.

 

an excerpt from the book:

Life-orientated medicine is a knowledge and an interaction in line with life; being in line with means being in harmony with deep process of self-generation – a concept more righteous, more dynamic, and deeper than stagnation; that is, one living system is a generative one which in turn has an endless orientation to regeneration and inevitably was obliged to regenerate itself in other forms; consequently other complicated forms of life have emerged.

Medicine is a knowledge has come to existence from life, and life which continuously orients toward facilitating self-generation process, tends to restructure automatic healing processes of organism (healing), simplifies acceptance of truth (release), and advances development of biopsychosocial and spiritual capacities (evolution).

Life-oriented medicine is a path to self-actualization, not a futile long battling with death and extending life in vain.

Knowledge of Consciousness Evolution; Essays on Transpersonal Psychology

Farzad Gol

Dehkadeh-salaamat Publication

 

From the back cover:

Transpersonal psychology concentrates on consciousness evolution which prior to delving in psychological disorders and human agonies to find their root causes, interprets and treats them as an evolutionary defect.

Transpersonal psychology is a developmental systemic approach to life and health which considers ascending the evolution ladder as the true path of development and healing rather than to compensate, decomplexificify, and recover harms occurred at that consciousness level. Psyche is healthy due to its fluidity and anything hinders the evolution process, not only depletes life of meaning but leads the wandering life-energy to psychosomatic self-destruction and self-helplessness.

… consider the essays presented in this book as practices in transpersonal psychology and speculations in Persian-Islamic psychology which aims to find not only some evidences in Persian literature and moralities in line with today’s psychological findings and contexts but tries to give birth to ideas and new methods in the heart of native culture and language. However, it should be kept in mind that today’s human being has multiple identity – or better to say, marginal identity – and simultaneously breathe in his own native culture, universal culture, and, even by then and now, in other native culture and no unique established method can satisfy his well-being and evolution.

 

an excerpt from the book:

… Perhaps the least important birth-day is the one we have come into this world from our mothers’ wombs. There exist indeed other birth-days which distinguish human beings from other mammal’s family; the ones taken place in wombs’ matrix of mind when we, as human beings, are given birth into a new realm of consciousness and create another new life world.

As the same as some of us have been aborted from mother nature’s womb, some others of us seclude ourselves in the first womb of mind. Real life in action, not potential life, is a succession of births and journeys from one sky to the other; the moment of world creating.
