About the author:
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, social sciences and humanities.
He started writing essays as an adolescent and received a high school award for creative writing and editorial work for the school magazine.
After finalizing his law diplomas, he graduated with an LL.M. in European Integration at Saarland University, Germany, and with a Doctor of Law title from University of Geneva, Switzerland, in 1987.
He then took courses in psychology at the University of Geneva and interviewed a number of psychotherapists in Lausanne and Geneva, Switzerland. His interest was intensified through a hypnotherapy with an Ericksonian American hypnotherapist in Lausanne. This led him to the recovery and healing of his inner child.
In 1986, he met the late French psychotherapist and child psychoanalyst Françoise Dolto (1908-1988) 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 by Gallimard Publishers in Paris, in 2005.
After a second career as a corporate trainer and personal coach, Pierre retired as a full-time writer, philosopher and consultant.
His nonfiction books emphasize a systemic, holistic, cross-cultural and interdisciplinary perspective, while his fiction works and short stories focus upon education, philosophy, perennial wisdom, and the poetic formulation of an integrative worldview.
Pierre is a German-French bilingual native speaker and writes 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).

Joseph Murphy and the Power of Your Subconscious Mind
Short Biography, Book Reviews, Quotes, and Excerpts
Peter Fritz Walter
'Joseph Murphy and the Power of Your Subconscious Mind' (Great Minds Series, Vol. 6) is a study that features one of the greatest selfhelp authors of our time.
Joseph Murphy (1898-1981), born in Ireland, was a naturalized American author and New Thought minister, ordained in Divine Science and Religious Science.
He was born into a strictly Catholic school master family and was accepted as a Jesuit seminarian. However, by the time he reached his late teen years, he began to question the orthodoxy of the Jesuits and withdrew from the seminary, leaving his family for going to America, where he started a modest career as a pharmacist.
Parallel to his job, he began to study all of the world's religions, yet his concept of Christianity was non-traditional and he founded his own church in Los Angeles, becoming a proponent of the New Thought movement, whose founder, Ernest Holmes, became his mentor. Gradually his classes, his sermons and his radio programs became more and more widely known and his fame spread with publishing his first bestseller, The Power of Your Subconscious Mind, in 1963. Over the years, he received several academic degrees, as a scientist, a theologian, and a Ph.D. as well. In his later years he also became a Fellow of the Andhra Research University of India.
After his first great publishing success, he wrote more than 30 other books that all become bestsellers. He died in 1981 and his wife, Dr. Jean Murphy, continued his ministry.
Dr. Murphy left a legacy that is highly important in our time of loss of soul in everyday life. His practical and yet deeply spiritual teaching, and prayer technique, called 'Scientific Prayer' has left a markstone in our time for those, who without wanting to join a fixated Credo, wish to live a spiritual life, do good to others, experience success, wealth and recognition, and create inner peace.
The present book provides a bit for all tastes, offering a short biography, reviews of his most important books, quotes, comments and book excerpts, and a bonus essay by the author, entitled 'Creative Prayer, the Miracle Road.'
