Healing Your Spirit Q Those of us whose childhoods have been painful often develop a heightened sensitivity and compassion for the pain of others. He suggests we can learn to let go of blaming others for our pain or even trying to understand why we were the victims of misfortune. In other cultures we can find models in which old age is a time for great spiritual opening.

Gay Gaer Luce, Ph. I think anyone could find wisdom and healing in this book. Jun 24, Lisa rated it it was amazing. Beautiful, a real treasure for the healing heart. An amazing book if your childhood has been damaged in any way. Aug 23, Rebecca Waring-Crane rated it it was amazing. Wayne Muller writes with heart and wisdom as he examines the impact and influence experienced by those of us who grew up in families of pain. Many passages had me nodding in recognition of my life, but just as often I realized that what was described fit my mother or my father.
I so appreciate Muller's references to various wisdom traditions, including Sufi, Buddhist and Christian, as he shares practices that help readers melt and move through broken strategies that shut us off from peace, belon Wayne Muller writes with heart and wisdom as he examines the impact and influence experienced by those of us who grew up in families of pain.

Well, not so, although the flip side is true as well. At the end of the day, people who have the resources to do so, can change life by deciding to go another way. They can use an adult perspective to review what was painful in childhood and build on that, comfort their childhood pain, and move on constructively.

I would recommend it to anyone looking to learn more deeply the things of the heart and how it operates, as well as how God can interact with our hearts during painful confusing seasons. I remember more from this book than I have from a book in a long time, and found myself compelled to constantly look back to previous chapters. Dec 15, Bill rated it liked it Shelves: generalinterest. A difficult read for several reasons. While presented as a "self-help" type of book, it actually reads more like a textbook.
The thought processes were all familiar at this relatively late stage in my life -- this probably would have been more useful to me 30 years ago. The exercises at the end of each chapter were beyond my capability to accomplish alone. They all would have required competent supervision for me to avoid negative outcomes.

Jun 25, Chris rated it really liked it. This isn't an easy book to read if you have had pain in your childhood, but it is helpful and specific about things you can do now to move from pain into healing. Muller challenges you all the way and won't let you feel sorry for yourself but rather pushes you to realize that as an adult you have work to do for the rising generation that won't get done if you steep in the muck of the past. Provocative and helpful.
The insights are significant.

A bit of a self help book, with "exercises" thrown in, without being annoying at all. Aug 05, Sandra Clinger rated it it was amazing. He goes on to explain our vulnerability makes us more open to our experience of God. Apr 19, Jean rated it it was amazing.
So far I really am enjoying this book. It has come at the right time in my life. Jan 17, Elizabeth James rated it really liked it. Wonderful, great for understanding the impact of childhood experiences, even if they weren't very painful. Gently written. Includes suggestions for exercises and meditations. Aug 25, Mark rated it really liked it. At a time of loss of a loved one, my childhood memories surfaced and this book helped me explore those feelings that were so deep inside and of course to confront them. Sep 29, Stephanie rated it really liked it. A book that I used to highly recommend to my clients when I had a psychotherapy practice.
Supportive and evocative without being preachy or mushy. Re-stocking fees may apply.
