Close to the Bone
Face Life Threatening Situations and Find Hope
“This book can be a companion to anyone in physical or mental pain and crisis.” —Louise L. Hay, author of You Can Heal Your Life
When confronted with a life threatening condition, most people think that doctors have the final word. But, Jean Shinoda Bolen reminds us that the mind has a powerful effect on a prognosis and the process of healing.
Everyone faces illness. Whether it’s a personal health crisis or sickness a loved one is experiencing, none of us escape this life without encountering some form of illness or death. While we can try to ignore the reality, internationally known author and speaker Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen suggests we do the exact opposite: face it. By encountering the frightening world of serious illness and death, we can better uncover how it gives purpose to the journey of souls.
Trust what you know in your bones. Dr. Bolen shares how what we learn often connects to what we know to be true. As a psychiatrist and Jungian analyst, Dr. Bolen has an acute understanding of what shapes a person, particularly as it relates to one’s sense of balance and wholeness. Based on her knowledge and experience, she guides us to find the truth buried in our own bones.
A tool for help and healing. While encountering sickness is inevitable, healing often seems harder to come by. We are left broken open when life threatening illness hits. While there is no single key to recovery, it is rare to find healing without first addressing the pain. This book serves as a guide to finding purpose in the pain.
