“David Bookbinder is one of those awakened souls whose near-death experience gave him fresh and timeless eyes. He has taken that gift and poured it into Paths to Wholeness, using innovative photography and heartfelt reflection to surface and praise the mysteries of the inner world.”
– Mark Nepo, The Book of Awakening
Most of us try to be fully present to this amazing existence we were born into, and often we can. But sometimes, we look for help. In these key selections from Paths to Wholeness: Fifty-Two Flower Mandalas, psychotherapist, photographer, and near-death survivor David J. Bookbinder brings his talent for inspiring personal transformation to his readers.
Combining potent, pragmatic essays in the lineage of Carl Jung with award-winning Flower Mandala images inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe, David both shows and tells the tale of a spiritual seeker who, having traversed his own winding path toward awakening, now guides others to find balance, build resilience, overcome fear, and to expand their hearts by listening deeply, imparting hope, and loving more fully.
Carry it with you throughout the day, or page through it as you drift off to sleep, knowing you are not alone on your journey. TIP: For a more vivid experience of the images, try setting the Kindle background to Black.

David J. Bookbinder is a psychotherapist, life coach, and photographer. He came to psychotherapy after a transformative near-death experience shifted him toward art and healing. As a coach and therapist, for the past 15 years he has helped people find balance, build resilience, overcome fear, and expand their lives. David has been taking photographs since he was six. His award-winning Flower Mandala images were inspired by the paintings of Georgia O’Keeffe and the flower photographs of Harold Feinstein, with whom he briefly studied.
In addition to THE ART OF BALANCE: STAYING SANE IN AN INSANE WORLD and PATHS TO WHOLENESS: FIFTY-TWO FLOWER MANDALAS, he is the author of two coloring books for adults based on his Flower Mandalas, a book about American folk music, and three books about computer software.
David lives and works north of Boston and is a native of Buffalo, New York.
