David Shainberg

Born: 1932

Died: December 5, 1993 (Age 61)

David Shainberg was primarily known as a renowned psychoanalyst and psychoanalytic author in New York City from the 1960s to the 80s. Born in Memphis, he graduated from the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons and trained as a psychoanalyst at the American Institute for Psychoanalysis. He became Dean of Education at the Postgraduate Center for Mental Health, NYC, and editor of the Psychoanalytic Journal. Among his many publications, David authored a book, The Transforming Self: New Dimensions in Psychoanalytic Process, (1973), a book that was precursor to his contributions in the fields of psychoanalysis and spirituality.

During his professional practice, he was also a leading force behind the integration of eastern and western philosophies in the understanding of consciousness and experience. The first to bring psychoanalysts and eastern spiritual leaders together, he collaborated with Jiddu Krishnamurti and David Bohm in videotaped discussions called “The Power of Illusion,” later published in the 1979 book, The Wholeness of Life.
