Spiritual Health and Healing means using spiritual concepts of different traditions to reveal the true purpose of life. As human beings, we live in the world with a sense of duty and responsibility to society, and at the same time we experience the ultimate spiritual beings within our physical bodies. When we are in harmony with the mother earth, father sky, and the entire cosmos, we experience the right relationship with all that exists in the universe and we then reside in peace, joy, love and compassion. There is no more suffering or struggle. Even when suffering or struggles do exist, they solely serve to remind us that we are human beings with a purpose to live and experience the beauty and love beyond everyday experiences. Spiritual healing is nothing magical or superficial. It is rooted in our everyday lives and an everyday, living philosophy. In life we experience suffering in many different ways. Spiritual healing teaches us the ways to connect to the cosmos and divinity through our body and experiences. These connecting agents serve the same function, and they are neither superior nor inferior to one another. The lessons in Spiritual Health and Healing are derived from different traditions and serve to bring us harmony within the human race, as well as to bring peace to everyone and to every place.

Conventional wisdom has always held that when we help others, some of the good we do flows back to us. That satisfaction has always been thought to be largely emotional—feeling good when you do good. Now important, widely discussed research shows that helping others regularly produces significant health benefits as well—in fact, it has effects similar to those many of us experience when we exercise. It is almost impossible to read this book without wanting to do good. Both for those who are already volunteering and for those who are considering it, this valuable personal guide tells you how to choose an activity that’s right for you, how to maximize the health benefits, and how to overcome the main obstacle to getting started: lack of time. The Healing Power of Doing Good reaffirms and explains that when we care for others we care for ourselves. It is an important book for those suffering from chronic health problems as well as the health conscious, anyone interested in how our mind affects our body, and people in the helping professions. And it reminds us that never has there been such a need for caring as there is today.

Healing Through Awakening

What if you were reborn in this moment completely free from the voice of fear, negativity, or doubt?...And what if, instead, you found yourself filled with deep love, joy, and gratitude for all of life? How would you create your life from this place of freedom and happiness? How would you experience yourself and life from this feeling of unconditional love? The keys to awakening this heavenly realm within are available to everyone, but require a journey inward to the most essential part of yourself; your heart and soul. Though it requires effort to embark on this path of awakening, it is not the effort of doing more, or trying to become something greater that what you already are. Instead, it is the effort of letting go-letting go of fear, and letting go of the false self that has been constructed in the mind over the course of a lifetime. The path to spiritual liberation requires honest self reflection, inward investigation, and a desire to know the truth of who you are beyond the limitations of your mind, emotions, and body. Our purpose on the planet is to remember and reawaken to the truth of who we are; that of unconditional love, peace, and joy. The loving energy that we are is ever changing, evolving, and expanding, and cannot fully be grasped nor contained within the limited confines of the mind. The suffering that many people experience in life, and the collective dysfunction perpetuating much of the pain and destruction on the planet at this time, is the result of a deep forgetfulness of our Being, of who we are in our essence. This is my story of stepping out of the mind-made reality of the ego, and directly experiencing the greater reality existing within and all around us. This is a story of the magic, grace, and healing that has accompanied my awakening process, uncovering more of my true nature. The first part of the book is my personal journey, while the following chapters serve as a guide for the awakening and healing journey for anyone who desires to live in greater connection and happiness. Though the scope of this book may seem ambitious, covering such a wide array of topics relating to the mind, emotions, and body, I feel that this is the most balanced approach to spiritual awakening. The reason is that the journey of awakening and healing is truly a holistic process, where each part of our human experience profoundly effects and shapes all other parts of the self. By learning to integrate back into wholeness on every level, we grow and evolve in a balanced way. The holistic approach also creates a solid foundation to begin creating a new reality for oneself, a reality that is filled with infinite potential for peace, happiness, and well-being. May these words inspire and awaken the memory more fully within you of a greater reality, and of your true nature.

The Straight Path of the Spirit

The inspiring story of one man's exploration of indigenous healing in a culture fighting to preserve its spiritual health. • A firsthand account of a little-known healing tradition. • A dramatic story of self-transformation by a well-respected Harvard-educated anthropologist. In the late 1970s Richard Katz, a clinical psychologist trained in anthropology, spent two years living in a remote island community in Fiji, hoping to record the practices of its healers. At the foundation of their healing, he discovered, was the concept of the straight path, a journey through life whose truth is revealed only to the extent that it is searched for with honesty and faith. It is a way of healing that in its very essence is a way of living, a path that emphasizes the spiritual dimensions of health and the relevance of these to the community. But while interviewing healers at work, Katz was drawn into an increasingly suspenseful drama. Unexplained deaths, rumors and suspicions, and the intrusion of a zealous evangelist rocked the village and soon revealed to the author the dangerous alternative to the straight path: the misuse of power that some call witchcraft. The Straight Path of the Spirit is an engrossing story of indigenous healers and a dramatic account of cultures in collision. Through the story of his own self-transformation, Katz reveals not only those aspects of life essential for the Fijians as they struggle to hold onto their identity, but also what is of importance to all of us who seek to retain our humanity.

Increasingly, physicians and other health care workers are becoming alienated from their work, as medicine becomes more and more de-personalized, technologically oriented and driven by entrepreneurial concerns. The Healer's Calling addresses the longings of many people in this profession for a renewed sense of the transcendent meaning of their work, for the spiritual elements of healing.-- where God may be found in health care-- how faithful clinicians might persevere in the midst of the suffering and uncertainty that is part of daily practice-- how and when a doctor or nurse might pray-- how genuine Christian joy can still be found in the healing artsWith extraordinary grace and passion, Franciscan friar and physician Daniel Sulmasy speaks to the spiritual longing of healers. His work is at once a personal reflection and exhortation, written at a time of great turmoil in medicine. Sure to be of great interest to health care workers at all levels, it will capture the attention of anyone concerned about the spiritual dimensions of health care.
