Warning! This is not a easy fix, magic bullet, self-help book. The Origin of Illness is not an easy read, i.e., do not skim and expect to get the gist of it. Do not let the fact it is "thin" book fool you either. The writing is direct, spare, and precise. It is a profound well written book. Each page offers wisdom and insights when you carefully attend to what Keppe is saying.
The reader needs to carefully note and hold in mind the meanings Keppe gives to terms. If you don't do this you will not understand the significance of what he has discovered about the phenomena being discussed. For example, he uses envy to describe a condition of not being able to see the goodness, the truth, and the beauty in our world. Another example is the use of the word unconscious to entail negating consciousness of our problems, i.e., the unconscious is not a container or a compartment in which things are stored out of our awareness. Happily, the task of keeping the terms in mind has been made easier by including a glossary of terms at the end of the book
Keppe's inclusion of samples of actual analysis sessions is helpful and demonstrates the terms in use. They also give the reader an opportunity to insights about their own blind spots. The method used by Keppe takes spiritual courage: You constantly strive to become ever more aware of the things you and others are doing that lead to psychological, physical and social illness. This awareness becomes the basis for dealing with problems. Problems never go away but you can constantly choose to go towards the good, truthful and beautiful in life.
I have to admit I have a very strong bias in favor of Keppe's work based on my 40+ years experience in the human service field in mental health, education, and corrections. All those years I was constantly looking for practical ways to assist people overcome their problems. Then I discovered Keppe's work. Keppe is on to something important about the human condition. Simply put, IT WORKS! Keppe's therapeutic model is highly ethical, respectful and radical in that it goes directly to to source of the problem --- our lack of awareness of how we attack the good in our life and in the lives of others.
In closing, The Origins of Illness is, to me, both a practical aid and spiritual guide. I am currently incorporating his approach in groups for court referred domestic violence perpetrators, anger management classes, and addicts in a residential program with excellent results. Keppe's practices require compassionate honesty on the part of the therapist and educator when dealing with clients. And you need to constantly work on becoming ever more aware of your own contaminated thinking and blind spots.
