Using the example of poet Rainer Maria Rilke, Stein clearly and carefully walks the listener through the hows and whys of the transformation process. Looking at C. G. Jung's life, Stein then explains how transformative images stimulate the transformation process by suggesting new ways of thinking and living. Intimate relationships, like those between a husband and a wife or a doctor and a patient, can also play a very powerful role in transformation. Finally, Stein examines the process in the lives of three important people, Jung, Picasso, and Rembrandt, whose experiences of transformation led to even greater creativity and freedom.
This book is successful both as an easy-to-understand elucidation of the transformation process and as an invitation to personal change. For those people who would like to learn what a meaningful second half of life could be like, Transformation: Emergence of the Self is an inspiring place to start.

Not a light read, but good insight
This is an in depth study looking at spiritual enlightment, or more precisely midlife return to true self, using a few very well known artists and thought leaders. If you aren't familiar with Carl Jung, the vocabulary could be overwhelming.
