Spiritual support can come from a book
on 17 July 2013
Lovely book - the author shares parts of her own painful journey with cancer in her family, and how difficult it can be. The book explores many levels in which wellness and illness happen, explaining in accessible language the sometimes confusing topics surrounding illness.
I very much recommend it for those who are wanting to support family members, or themselves, in going through an illness. The main focus of the book is cancer, but really the healing meditations and exercises and explanations are suitable for any health challenge.
There's enough background information given to make the book suitable for newcomers to spirituality (the chakras and auras are explained, for example), so it can be picked up and enjoyed by anyone. There's also enough depth of teaching that the book is suitable for more experienced travellers, wanting to support others or to support themselves.
Although this book explores topics of spirituality and energy healing etc, it isn't at all "woo woo" or fluffy, which I appreciate, being slightly allergic to those things ;-). It's a down to earth read - a nice balance of 'practical' (or pragmatic) and open hearted. That the author's father passed away from cancer is the foundation of this book - it's written with compassion for anyone going through a similar experience.
If you're looking for a well-written, grounded, open hearted and spiritual guide to healing, this could be for you :-)
