HEALING OF INDIVIDUALS FAMILIES AND NATIONS Trans - Generational Healing and Family Constellations John L Payne
A new perspective of healing is presented in this interesting book on Family Constellations: It will expand the readers vision beyond the scope of healing as an individual and personal matter to one that spans generations in its scope crosses racial and cultural barriers and sheds new light on the energetics involved in relationships between victims and perpetrators be that regimes wars incest and sexual abuse of trauma as a result of crime. The Orders of Love describe a natural hierarchy that has been observed in the practice of Family Constellations: There is a distinct order that states who belongs and who does not belong to not only a family system but also to groups and nations. On working with individuals we observe that each of us has three levels of conscience. First the conscience we have as individuals dictating to us what is right and wrong our responsibilities and our reactions to certain conditions. Secondly we also belong to the collective conscience of our biological family and the connections and influence of family conscience can span many generations. Lastly we also participate in the conscience of our ethnic and national groups - be that Jewish Africans Zulu White Black Coloured Muslim Hindu Catholic Protestant German or Scottish. This book bridges the gap between the healing of an individual to the healing of family ethnic and national souls through the unveiling of the orders of love.
HEALING POWER OF BLAKE A Distillation John Diamond
You agree that William Blake is a very great poet. But you've probably only ever read his earlier poems - like 'The Tyger'. You've looked at the hundreds of pages of his later so-called prophetic works knowing that there his true genius must lie. But you close them intimidated by the sheer mass and the strangeness and apparent incomprehensibility. So you retreat to the early easy ones - but you wonder…. Based on his many years of research into the healing power of the Creative Arts and his extensive clinical experience in this field Dr John Diamond has chosen these passages from the prophetic works which are not only inviting and comprehensible but which are the very gems of Blake's genius. Here they are - magnificent and accessible. And furthermore they have been punctuated (Blake left little punctuation) so as to encourage you to read them out loud to feel and know the glory of Blake.
HEALING RAGE Women Making Inner Peace Possible Ruth King
Few recognise the enormous power of rage as a vehicle for healing or possess the skillful means to transform rage from a destructive to a life affirming resource. Rage is fuel, the source of our empowerment. When we embrace this brilliance respectfully, rage teaches us how to live, love and heal.
Ruth King has devoted her career to exploring the subtle varieties of rage, while challenging the notion that rage is an “evil” emotion that must be eradicated. In HEALING RAGE, she gives all readers access to her pioneering, breakthrough programme, which has already changed thousands of lives through workshops.
Rage, King explains that rage is not to be understood as a useless emotion but as clarity and untapped fuel. Embraced with compassion, the energy trapped in rage becomes an intimate and empathic teacher offering balance, integrity and inner peace to your healing journey, relationships and service.
Many of us go through our lives maintaining a good front. We may have all of the trappings - good job, higher education and material gain - yet we have an inherent discontent with our lives that won’t go away. Written for every woman—ranging from counselors and their patients to those who may not realise that rage is at the root of their unhappiness and have just begun to seek new paths of hope - HEALING RAGE is a unique invitation for transformation.

HEALING THE MIND THROUGH THE POWER OF STORY The Promise of Narrative Psychiatry Lewis Mehl-Madrona
Conventional psychiatry is not working. The pharmaceutical industry promises it has cures for everything that ails us, yet a recent study on antidepressants showed there is no difference of success in prescribed pharmaceuticals from placebos when all reported trials are considered instead of just the trials published in journals. Up to 80 percent of patients with bipolar depression retain their symptoms despite conventional treatment and 10 to 20 percent of these patients commit suicide.
In HEALING THE MIND THROUGH THE POWER OF STORY, Dr. Mehl-Madrona shows what mental health care could be. He explains that within a narrative psychiatry model of mental illness, people are not defective, requiring drugs to “fix” them. What needs “fixing” is the ineffective stories they have internalised and succumbed to about how they should live in the world. Drawing on traditional stories from cultures around the world, Dr. Mehl-Madrona helps his patients rewrite their lives. He shows how this innovative approach is actually more compatible with what we are learning about the biology of the brain and genetics than the conventional model of psychiatry. Drawing on wisdom both ancient and new, he demonstrates the power and success of narrative psychiatry to bring forth change and lasting transformation.
HEALING THE WOUNDED GOD Finding Your Personal Guide on Your Way to Individuation and Beyond Jeffrey Raff and Linda Bonnington Vocatura
Many people yearn for deeper truth and seek not the idea but the experience of spirit. If you are one of these people in this book you will find a map for your quest. Through creation myths and the mystical traditions of alchemy and Sufism the authors explore the emergence of a new spiritual paradigm in which the divine seeks wholeness through and with us. They show how this is achieved through using Jung's technique of active imagination work with a being that seems to exist independently in the realm beyond the psyche or in what the authors term the psychoid. This being the ally challenges and yet gives us total support on the way to individuation. Jeffrey Raff explores the ally's parallels in mystical traditions such as Sufism and alchemy as well as how the ally differs from angelic beings. Linda Bonnington Vocatura presents an exciting view of various creation myths revealing that salvation exists beyond the vault of heaven for God and human alike. HEALING THE WOUNDED GOD shows us how to contact and consciously enter into a relationship with the ally through our dreams and by employing what C.G. Jung termed active imagination. When we work with the ally to transform ourselves the divine transforms as well all three elements co-creating a whole being.
We grieve only for that which we have loved and the transient nature of life makes love and loss intimate companions. In HEALING THOUGH THE SHADOW OF LOSS Deborah Morris Coryell describes grief as the experience of not having anywhere to place our love of losing a connection an outlet for our emotion. Healing grief is learning how to continue to love in the face of loss. She points out that while the passing of time does not heal us embracing loss allows us to awaken our most profound connections to other people. Part of the grieving process is finding our place in the world again following a loss. We tend to define ourselves in relation to those we love - as Laura's mother Jims wife or Stacey's friend. The loss of a loved one is jarring to these foundations and can make us question our own sense of reality. In addition the body must adjust to the sensory changes of having lost a part of our life a part of our daily existence. Coryell draws attention to our society's tendency to rank losses in a hierarchy of grief. She reminds us that all losses must be grieved in their own right and on their own terms and that we must honour the big losses as well as the lesser ones. Paying attention to even the most minute experiences of loss can help us to be more in tune with our responses to the greater ones allowing us to once again become part of the rhythm of life from which we have become disconnected.

HEARING VOICES A Common Human Experience John Watkins
Although hearing voices is often considered a hallmark of madness it is actually a rather common experience. While “voices” are a prominent symptom of psychotic disorders like schizophrenia they can, also, occur in many other contexts. Many well-adjusted individuals have had at least one memorable voice experience and some people have them regularly. While some experiences are disturbing, others provide comfort, reassurance and guidance. Benign inner voices often occur in association with non-ordinary states of consciousness, mystical and paranormal phenomena, near-death experiences and shamanic practices and may serve as a vehicle for creative inspiration, extrasensory communication, the call of vocation and spiritual revelation.
HEARING VOICES ventures beyond conventional psychiatric therapies whose sole aim is symptom eradication to explore ways of working creatively with voices and other inner experiences to foster personal growth, healing and recovery. Included is: - A detailed description of a wide variety of voice hearing experiences - An overview of the theories accounting for how and why this happens - A range of practical techniques for coping with voices - Guidelines for applying spiritual discernment to hearing voices - Strategies for optimising the personal value of voice hearing experiences
HEART OF FORGIVENESS A Practical Path to Healing Madeline Ko-i Bastis
Madeline Ko-i Bastis is a Buddhist chaplain. She works with cancer, AIDS, psychiatric, and Alzheimer's patients, with battered women, caregivers, inmates, with people with addictions, as well as so-called normal people. In her work she has found that the most difficult thing for people to do is to grant forgiveness. Some people cannot ask for forgiveness, others cannot forgive one another. And some don't realize how harsh they are to themselves when they cannot forgive the one person they have to live with daily - themselves. Heart of Forgiveness helps readers reflect on what forgiveness really means and how it can heal their lives and relationships. Ko-i Bastis explores the difficult emotions that keep us from forgiving and offers tools to help us overcome them. The three parts of Heart of Forgiveness mirror the phrases of the Buddhist Forgiveness practice: For all the harm I have done to others, knowingly or unknowingly, forgive me.
For all the harm others have done to me, knowingly or unknowingly, I forgive you as much as I can.
For all the harm I have done myself, knowingly or unknowingly, I forgive myself.
Each section includes stories of forgiveness, a meditation, guided imagery, and other exercises to help understand forgiveness and letting go.

HERO LIVING Seven Strides to Awaken Your Infinite Power Rudy Reyes
In his publishing debut, Rudy Reyes introduces his philosophy of "Hero Living": part Homer, part Joseph Campbell, part Bruce Lee and part Spider-Man. The various stages in the journey aim to bring forth the hero within: recognising the hero's call, following the hero's path and returning from life's battlefield with the hero's hard-earned wisdom.
Taking readers step-by-step through his programme, Reyes draws from his own heroic story of how he triumphed over his harrowing childhood experiences of poverty and abandonment. Rather than giving up hope, he heeded the hero's call to live up to his full potential - first as a martial-arts champion, then as an elite warrior in the mountains of Afghanistan and on the sands of Iraq and finally in his post-Marines life as a personal trainer, actor and motivational speaker.
HIDDEN LANGUAGE CODES Reprogram Your Life by Reengineering Your Vocabulary R. Neville Johnston
When R. Neville Johnston was shot three times in 1977, he died. But he came back knowing some things he hadn't known before. That the universe is made of up of vibrations for one. And that some of the most meaningful vibrations are the words we use in everyday thought and speech. Obviously it behooves us to choose our words with care so we can create the life we want. Hidden Language Codes is a book about thought. Where we go in life is directly related to our mastery and command of our thoughts and our language. In evolving, we naturally change the way we think. A method of accelerating this process is to change the very words we think with. This book is the key to learning words that will improve our lives and giving up the ones that hold us back. Learn to use power words-words that serve us well such as "acceptance," "faith," even "MacGyver," and the key power word, "love." Those words that do not serve us well include "greed," "blame," "hard," and the poster child for disempowerment/slave thinking "can't." Our language is full of unconscious triggersâ?”the words we speak are making decisions for us, running us. As long as we continue to try, need, guess, want, whine, and victim our way through life, we sabotage our own goals and happiness. Never use these words again. Take charge of your thoughts and speech, and your life will follow suit.
HIDDEN ORDER Discover Your Life's Design Winter Robinson
Things that happen to us are really choices we make. Once we know that, we can discover and follow our blueprint to create the lives we want. This book shows us how to make our best ideas for the future into reality. Author Winter Robinson writes, "When our inner (internal, spiritual) and outer (physical) world meet, a blueprint reveals itself... The purpose of this book is to assist you in bringing these worlds together."
A Hidden Order is divided into two parts. Part one, "A Gentle Touch," presents the idea that individuals plan and create everything in their lives. Anecdotal stories support this idea and exercises help readers to test this theory in their own lives. Part two, "Master Practices," offers a set of master practices and exercises to incorporate into a daily routine. After reading each chapter, readers are directed to practice the suggested exercise and record their experiences in a journal, which over time reveals a blueprint for life.
