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 SOUNDS FOR CHILDREN WITH ADHD New Therapeutical Perceptions Dick de Ruiter & Danny Becher
This practical guide opens with an overview of the therapeutic counselling techniques and medical treatments used for children suffering from ADHD. Dick de Ruiter then describes the possibility of using special sounds and music as an extension of these therapies. As a therapeutic tool music and sound has been overlooked until now in the treatment of ADHD. The accompanying CD contains the sounds of singing bowls chimes and other instruments - including the human voice - all of which have been proven to have a special effect on both body and mind. It can be used as background during therapy communication training or relaxation exercises. It can also be played at home to immerse the child in a warm and comfortable sound bath. Several tracks have neurosonic qualities that have a direct and calming effect especially on children with ADHD. After having experienced the effects they are often highly motivated to listen regularly to the CD. (bkcd, cdzh, cdxh, cdxc)
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.
HEART OF THE MATTER Individuation As An Ethical Process Christina Becker
The Heart is the meeting place of the individual and the divine-the inner ground of morality authenticity and integrity. The process of coming to the Heart and realising the person we were meant to be is what Carl Jung called Individuation. This path is full of moral challenges for anyone with the courage to take it up. Using Jung's premise-that the main causes of psychological problems are conflicts of conscience-the author takes the reader through the philosophical and spiritual aspects of the ethical dimensions of this individual journey toward wholeness. This book is a long overdue and unique contribution to the link between individuation and ethics.

HEAVENLY HUGS Comfort, Support, and Hope From the Afterlife Carla Wills-Brandon

HELP! THERE'S A TODDLER IN THE HOUSE! Proven Strategies for Parents of 2- to 6-Year-Olds to Survive and Thrive through the Mischief, Mayhem, and Meltdowns Thomas M. Reimers
Toddlers and preschoolers are unpredictable and their antics often keep parents guessing: Why won't my five-year-old eat his vegetables? Why does my two-year-old keep biting her sister? Why can't my three-year-old stay in his own bed? Why must I repeat myself every time I tell my daughter to do something?
The naughty as well as challenging behaviour of young children can drive even the most patient parents to their wits' end. In these pages, parents learn how to cope with and correct many of the most common behavioural problems that their little ones demonstrate: · Hitting, kicking, pinching and biting · Refusing to eat at mealtime · Having meltdowns in public places · Refusing to sleep at bedtime · Throwing tantrums for attention · Ignoring instructions · Fighting with siblings
Each chapter examines a specific problem, from the mildly irritating to the downright maddening and describes practical strategies to rein in, correct and prevent it. Also included are special chapters on how to use time-out correctly, potty train a toddler and how mums and dads can create a more rewarding and enriching family life.
