Deep Change: Befriending the Unknown by Susan P. Plummer PhD

Deep Change: Befriending the Unknown

In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Susan P. Plummer shares a revolutionary way of approaching depression that does not pathologize it. Instead she identifies seven experiential shifts that are calling us to greater freedom, connection, and belonging.

What would happen if we recognized experiences such as emptiness, meaninglessness, and anxiety not only as challenges or possible symptoms of depression but also as signs of change that are calling us into a new future? Author Susan P. Plummer shares that: “Our relationship to our future is revealed in our relationship to the unknown, and to cooperate with our future’s longing for us we need to befriend the unknown.” Calling the indiscriminate use of pharmaceuticals a “future-buster,” she advocates that with our entire culture currently on the brink of Deep Change, the widespread indiscriminate prescription of medications may be aborting the emergence of the new futures and new worlds we desperately need.

Her more than 20 years of groundbreaking research has been distilled into an indispensable roadmap for navigating the experience of Deep Change and realizing one’s most essential self. Deep Change guides us through the Seven Shifts of Transformation, taking us beyond merely redesigning our lives to changing the way we experience our self and our world. We are able to begin letting go and accepting change as we connect with deeper currents that originate from within and beyond ourselves. This book is about embracing our true heritage of compassion, connection, freedom, and belonging.

DR. SUSAN P. PLUMMER is the Director of the Santa Barbara Alliance for Living and Dying Well, a consortium of major end of life care services and providers committed to creating the highest quality of end of life care for the community. Prior to this, she was the director of a certified hospice program in Mendocino County, where she lived for over 30 years. A native of the San Francisco Bay Area, she holds a doctorate degree from the Saybrook Institute, as well as undergraduate degrees from UC Davis and Berkeley’s School of Social Welfare. Also a licensed psychotherapist, she has had a part-time private practice for over 25 years.

Starting at a young age, Dr. Plummer was curious about other dimensions. This grew into a passionate lifetime interest in experiences of major life transitions, which she began to investigate under the guidance of leading theorist, Dr. Amadeo Giorgi. Her recent book, Deep Change: Befriending the Unknown, grew out of this doctoral research. Her book and presentations address the intricacies of transformation as they apply to individuals as well as the collective. She is a facilitator for the Courage for Renewal (Parker Palmer’s Circle of Trust model. Her popular workshops explore grief, bereavement, and the call to transformation as an avenue for growth in individuals and organizations. She is a popular speaker and has been at The National Conference of Methodist Ministers in Hospice, The International Conference for Human Research Science, Antioch University, Santa Barbara Hollyhock Learning Center, Cortes Island, Canada, JFK University, San Francisco Saybrook Institute, San Francisco, Sophia Center at Holy Names University, Oakland, and UC Berkeley School of Social Welfare, Berkeley (among others).

“A profound work of discovery—originality and insight shine through. This book will be a huge consolation and encouragement to our search for light.”

“Susan Plummer is a highly skilled and deeply sensitive psychotherapist who understands the dynamics of our inner lives as well as anyone I know; she is a trustworthy guide through the most tangled of spiritual thickets.”

“An important book at a critical time in the life of our society, providing crucial insights as it deals with the paradoxes of gaining the world but losing its soul.”

“Dr. Plummer’s model for personal change may be one of the most important contributions toward growth-centered counseling since Abraham Maslow’s work on peak experience. The practical applications she describes make it easy to apply her principles, both for individuals guiding their own personal change and for professionals guiding others through theirs, I believe that this work will be a source of great personal breakthroughs for anyone committed to a path of personal and spiritual development.”

“Deep Change is a very accessible guide toward places and moments when we are startled into finding that we are alien to ourselves and that the resulting emptiness is a call forward.... I now point myself and others into the direction of the insights pioneered in this book.”
