5.0 out of 5 stars Mortally Wounded: Stories of Soul Pain, Death, and Healing 4 April 2009
By Aliene - Published on Amazon.com
This book addresses the psychosocial or inner suffering that dying individuals and their loved ones go through. It is helpful in understanding how physical pain can be alleviated or decreased when inner suffering is acknowledged and addressed. Micheal's correlation of the mythological story of Chiron and an individual's willingness to go to the depth of their pain or soul is extraordinarily helpful in understanding the suffering and healing process for dying and chronically ill individuals.
