Healing the Roots of Our Being

This book touches the roots of our being. It is a well-written guide for anyone interested in healing in religious communities.

All of us are surrounded by change. Some of the changes uproot us. They upset the body-mind-soul balance that is critical to our mental and physical health. Left to our own devices, Margaret Kornfeld says, this uprooting will manifest itself in more severe problems. Communities of care, she says, have stepped in to fill this void. These are groups that combine psychological with spiritual training to help individuals restore wholeness.

Kornfeld, a pastoral psychotherapist, an American Baptist pastor, faculty member at Union Theological Seminary, has written an encyclopedic treatment of caregiving. Thorough, engaging and well-written, this book will become dog-eared as you pull it off your shelf to consult. For all caregivers - professional, clergy and caring amateurs – this book is a must-read resource. ( )
