Clay Newman (New York, 1956) hit bottom when he was very young and overcame his troubles by means of a self-taught process of self-discovery. For this reason, at the age of twenty-four he renounced the counsel of psychiatrists and the help of antidepressants. He undertook, then, a solitary journey that led him to travel for seven years through Latin America, Africa and Asia in search of transformative experiences and useful knowledge to give a new meaning to his existence. An expert in Transpersonal Psychology, Perennial Philosophy, and Enneagram, he teaches at several universities, where he gives talks about spiritual development. Born to an American father and Spanish mother, he lives between the United States and Spain. El prozac de Séneca (Seneca’s Prozac) is his first book.
