Integrate Your Emotions is a guide to emotional wholeness and well-being. It has two functions; it sets out to elucidate the nature and functions of our emotions, and provides clear instructions and examples how to handle them and keep them in a healthy balance. The author stresses the fact that emotions have a kaleidoscopic nature, that all emotions are interlocked and that balance is vital to emotions in the sense that they assume a negative and devastating character when being repressed and getting out of balance. The author demonstrates in this cutting-edge self-help guide that sexual misconduct is regularly the result of people mishandling their emotions. In fact, in our culture there is a huge knowledge gap about the art of emotional balance and well-being. This is so because the bio-energetic nature of emotions is veiled or outright rejected; this means emotions are not seen as what they are, that is, flowing streams of vital energy that are part of our luminous body. In addition, emotions are often misconstrued by our mainstream science and psychology as static elements of cognition. The book proposes effective solutions both for the individual quest for emotional sanity and for forging new and effective social and legal policies for handling emotional flow within society at large, and with the ultimate objective to regulate our social and sexual conduct responsibly and without the need of law enforcement, coercion and monolithic state control. The audience for this guide is both professional and the lay audience, including those who are directly concerned and who have a problem with handling their emotional flow. The need for solutions to our emotional problems is not only an individual quest, but also a matter of public hygiene. It results from our collective denial of the basic patterns of living. This collective denial resulted in our messing up the code of life, thereby bringing about large-scale perversion and violence. The social and legal policies in place for handling sexual misconduct are largely ineffective because they are based on the ignorance of the bio-energetic nature of human sexuality.
Parallel to an international law career in Germany, Switzerland and the United States, Dr. Peter Fritz Walter (Pierre) focused upon fine art, cookery, astrology, musical performance, psychoanalysis, philosophy, social sciences and humanities.
From adolescence, Pierre wrote essays and received a high school award for creative writing and editorial work for the school magazine, which he co-founded. He was also best of class in philosophy and was reading Plato, Aristotle, Hegel, Nietzsche and Heidegger at the age of 14. In German literature, he focused his literary interest onÂ Hermann HesseÂ andÂ Thomas Mann, and wrote an award-winning essay about the famous authors for his baccalaureate.
After finalizing his law diplomas atÂ SaarlandÂ University, Germany, and a 3rd cycle course from theÂ Europa InstitutÂ in European Law and PolicyÂ in 1982, Pierre finalized his international law doctorate in 1987 at theÂ Law Faculty of the University of Geneva. He then continued to study psychology, took courses in psychology at theÂ University of GenevaÂ and interviewed a number of psychotherapists in Lausanne and Geneva, Switzerland, as he manifested a strong interest in that profession.
This interest was intensified through a therapy he went through in Lausanne with an American hypnotherapist trained underÂ Milton H. Erickson, and led Pierre to the recovery and healing of his inner child. Subsequently, he published a book and audiobook about the results of his work.
He also found at that time the revolutionary prayer technique developed by Dr. Joseph Murphy,Â presented and explainedÂ in Murphy's bestselling book The Power of Your Subconscious Mind (1963). Inquiring with his psychiatrist if scientific prayer would be compatible with the therapy, he met the full agreement of his doctor, who knew Murphy's technique and found it highly commendable for self-improvement.
Meeting psychiatrists during that important time of professional transition, Pierre learnt that he had a unique gift for the mental health profession. He then intensified his studies ofÂ Freudian,Â ReichianÂ andÂ JungianÂ psychoanalysis as well asÂ Transactional Analysis (TA). It was during that time that Pierre developed his interest in landscape photography, buying aÂ Minolta x300Â and realizing an award-winning series of portraits of the town ofÂ Lausanne, while he had received early training in photography from the age of nine by his mother and two photographers who were her professional colleagues.
In 1986, Pierre met the late French psychotherapist and child psychoanalystÂ Françoise Dolto (1908-1988)Â in Paris and interviewed her. A long correspondence followed up to their encounter which was considered by the curators of the Dolto Trust interesting enough to be published in a book alongside all of Dolto's other letter exchanges byÂ Gallimard Publishers in Paris. The subject of this correspondence was the need for children to build autonomy early in life, and the psychiatric etiology ofÂ pedophiliaÂ as a childhood hangup.
While having been a late starter in piano performance at the age of 18, Pierre beganÂ recording his spontaneous musical intuitions since 1994 and is producing now a series of CDs with his music. Also in 2015, Pierre began to translate and publish his psychoanalytic writings into Spanish as this was suggested to him by a reader of his works from South-America. While Pierre learned cookery from his grandmother in childhood, he started working as a food styler and photographer in Phnom Penh, back in 2012. He is now setting up a studio for product photography inÂ Phnom PenhÂ where he lives since 2004.
From 2005 to 2010, Pierre read more than 200 books and wrote and published free book reviews for more than 100 of them which are shared onÂ Book & Media ReviewsÂ and onÂ Amazon.
Pierre is a German-French bilingual native speaker and masters English as his 4th language after German, Latin and French. He also reads source literature for his research works in Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and Dutch. In addition, Pierre has notions of Thai, Khmer, Chinese and Japanese.
All of Pierre's books are hand-crafted and self-published, designed by the author. Pierre publishes via his Delaware company, Sirius-C Media Galaxy LLC, and under the imprints of IPUBLICA and SCM (Sirius-C Media). Blog|Amazon Page
