The Soul Friend: Spiritual Direction with Adults Abused as Children

 
9780970765802: The Soul Friend: Spiritual Direction with Adults Abused as Children

Drawing on the little known style of kataphatic or shamanistic spiritual direction and blending insights from transpersonal psychology, The Soul Friend presents a new model of spiritual direction. The book offers an in-depth exploration of the spiritual dimensions of abuse and provides a map of soul recovery. Based on the concept of the shaman as wounded healer, The Soul Friend incorporates the incarnational spirituality of ancient Celtic Christianity and weaves the author's own story with the stories of the women and men with whom sits sits as soul friend. The result is a tapestry of hope for survivors and a guide for their soul friends.
