Phil Kenney

Philip Kenney is a practicing psychotherapist in Portland, Oregon. He did his post-graduate work in British Object Relations at the Washington D.C. School of Psychiatry and has taught Self Psychology as part of his private practice. A long time meditator and poet, Mr. Kenney is the author of the novel, Radiance, and a collection of poetry, Where Roses Bloom. He strives to bring together the worlds of psychology, creativity and spirituality in his work and is the author of a new book on those subjects entitled, The Writer's Crucible: Meditations on Emotion, Being and Creativity.

Radiance, A Novel

Radiance is a love song, an epic poem.  Though it begins in the darkness of personal and national tragedy, it soars with the discovery of that which enlivens and sustains all life.  It reveals the inseparable nature of the psychological and the spiritual and the remarkable relationship of suffering with the ever-present and radiant source of being.
