About the Author
This is a brief history in three parts of a new paradigm understanding called The Three Principles,
and its dissemination, which was uncovered by Sydney Banks in the 1970s and very gradually and silently crept
into the consciousness of perhaps hundreds of thousands of people, touching and changing lives worldwide.
It all began when one man, Sydney Banks, in one moment of time, had a profound experience of spiritual
enlightenment. A small circle of people gathered around him on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia to
listen to his wisdom. Within a few years two mental health professionals became profoundly touched by Syd's
teachings, among them George Pransky. Part I of this book is an extensive interview with Dr. Pransky, who
began to create an entirely new, inside-out psychological paradigm.
It began to spread little by little, one person at a time, solidly through individual insights and slowly
began to infiltrate the fields of mental health, prevention, corrections, business, education, coaching and
many more. It began to spread around the world. Part II is a historical chronology of what transpired. Part
III consists of brief write-ups of a few of the important historical events that for an extended period of
time changed mainstream systems.
How difficult it must have been to create an entirely new psychology from the formless, spiritual nature
of which Syd Banks spoke, and for which he, himself, even struggled to find words! Furthermore, this became
a completely new psychology--a true paradigm shift to the inside-out--which flew in the face of the traditional
psychology accepted not only by the powers that be but by millions of people around the world who studied it
and practice it. And all this from one man's enlightenment experience in one moment of time, which gradually
rippled out affecting one person at a time, who then affected others, then others, changing lives along the
way, and it still grows on into unimaginable futures.
