Soul Pain from the Author: Helen K. Black. Black (Thomas Jefferson U., Philadelphia) spoke to 40 men and women ages 70 and over about their experiences of suffering. The gerontological literature has equated suffering with depression, grief, pain, and sadness, but the elderly themselves distinguished suffering from these other experiences, seeing it as both a part of the human condition and

Soul Pain from the Author: Jennifer Tann. Priests in their pastoral ministry encounter heart-breaking incidents occurring before what is regarded as a normal life-span: a child with cancer, a road accident, a seriously ill young mother, a bright student struck down. While this may be some preparation, when priests and ministers personally experience serious or terminal illness, they have the additional burden of being in a public role; of needing to manage outward behaviours and inner feelings. They live out the difficult questions which others bring to them, and to which there are no easy answers. Soul Pain (a term coined by Dame Cicely Saunders) is a moving, articulate and profound series of reflections on the shock, fear, anger, desolation, acceptance that serious illness brings, the choices to be faced and the meaning of healing in such contexts. Theologically rich and with a depth of wisdom learned at great cost, this book is full of illuminating insights for all who minister to those with life-threatening conditions and those who watch and wait. Essential reading for all in pastoral ministry.

Therapy For The Soul S Pain from the Author: Sham Bevel. All parts of the human body suffer from pain. Medical researchers and specialists have designed methods to address those pains. If your body aches, then physical or occupational therapy is performed on the necessary areas. If your mind is distressed or challenged, psychotherapy is assigned, and executed until improvement is evident. If your language or communication abilities are impaired, then speech therapy is rendered. What about the Soul? The Soul also experiences pain, aches, and impairment. Poetry creates “Therapy for the Soul’s Pain”. Therapy for the Soul’s Pain is divided into four components, as all other therapeutic processes. It is divided into; Evaluation, Diagnosis, Treatment, and the Cure. Evaluation involves identifying the pain. What is the pain or issue? The pain is revealed as life’s battles. Those are obstacles which we consistently face on a daily basis. Life’s battles are unavoidable, but approachable. Diagnosis identifies the causes of pain. The pain is caused by relationships. Relationships we experience with family members, co-workers, friends, lovers and ourselves. Treatment aspires to alleviate the soreness from mental and physical burdens of the soul. Treatment is achieved through motivational inspiration. Motivational inspiration lifts the soul to a safe place, above all animosity and opposition. The final element of the process is the cure. The cure is to permanently rid the soul of any pain and build up immunity from any future occurrence. The cure is self-acceptance. Accepting yourself for who you are and who you desire to be, can equip your soul with the most phenomenal strength. Therapy for the Soul’s Pain uses poetry to successfully guide you through a successful process of healing. Life will always be full of inescapable challenges. The goal is to not only mend, but also to develop a healthy and strong pain free soul. “Therapy for the Soul’s Pain” is also medically necessary.

Sacred Pain from the Author: Ariel Glucklich. Why would anyone seek out the very experience the rest of us most wish to avoid? Why would religious worshipers flog or crucify themselves, sleep on spikes, hang suspended by their flesh, or walk for miles through scorching deserts with bare and bloodied feet? In this insightful new book, Ariel Glucklich argues that the experience of ritual pain, far from being a form of a madness or superstition, contains a hidden rationality and can bring about a profound transformation of the consciousness and identity of the spiritual seeker. Steering a course between purely cultural and purely biological explanations, Glucklich approaches sacred pain from the perspective of the practitioner to fully examine the psychological and spiritual effects of self-hurting. He discusses the scientific understanding of pain, drawing on research in fields such as neuropsychology and neurology. He also ranges over a broad spectrum of historical and cultural contexts, showing the many ways mystics, saints, pilgrims, mourners, shamans, Taoists, Muslims, Hindus, Native Americans, and indeed members of virtually every religion have used pain to achieve a greater identification with God. He examines how pain has served as a punishment for sin, a cure for disease, a weapon against the body and its desires, or a means by which the ego may be transcended and spiritual sickness healed. "When pain transgresses the limits," the Muslim mystic Mizra Asadullah Ghalib is quoted as saying, "it becomes medicine." Based on extensive research and written with both empathy and critical insight, Sacred Pain explores the uncharted inner terrain of self-hurting and reveals how meaningful suffering has been used to heal the human spirit.

Dear Soul from the Author: Sylvester Mcnutt, III. We live in a generation that lacks authenticity, honesty, and empathy. We do not understand each other or each other's struggles as human beings. Today, my culture needs more love and understanding than ever before. We need more healing, growing, and development than ever before. Our souls are being killed by technology, expectation, and separation. Dear Soul is my attempt at laying the groundwork for recovery, healing, and moving forward. Dear Soul is my journey journal written in conversationalist tone, a very intimate, introspective style of poetry, and it shows the twisted romantic observations of the world, which we have all seen. This book connects to every human because it is based on finding love after pain. Pain is something that is common to each of our stories. Let's be honest-how many of us are still suffering from incidents from our childhood? When we struggle in life, the problem is not the problem. The problem is not having adequate solutions or resources to really move forward from the stresses. Dear Soul is the ultimate book to help you take an introspective look inside to uncover a deeper connection with self and a deeper scope for possible solutions for any type of pain. As a writer, my style has been dubbed "visionary poetry," and my purpose is to combine observations, poetry, and persuasive logic. My only goal is to cause an intense amount of thought or reflection inside of each reader. I do not put my words together to be "right." Right and wrong are relative and based on a person's perception and experience. It would be egregious of you to tell me that anything I am writing about is wrong, and vice versa. Nothing is wrong; everything in life is all about perception and perspective. The user who will get the most from this book is one who will relate to the topics that are relevant to his or her personal growth. The other user is someone who will step outside of his or her bubble and understand another's struggle. Once you can holistically understand another person's struggle, then you have activated empathy, and I believe that empathy is the most important quality missing from our culture. Once you have a culture of people who understand each other, are comfortable with self, and able to communicate effectively, then you raise the vibration of the entire world with that energy. We sit inside of our bubbles and internalize the pain of everything that happens to us, but we don't align with our struggles or successes. I am genuinely happy when I see people succeed at something they've worked for. I am able to share the joy as if it were my own accomplishment. I am able to feel the pain of a woman who doesn't feel comfortable walking down the street at night alone. No, I have never been a woman, but I have listened to those stories and tried to put myself there. Let's just be honest. This generation does not talk about sex, race, or pain from our childhood. We ignore those topics and we ignore self-love. I never heard the word self-love when I was growing up. As a child, I also didn't hear the word love much. I went on several spiritual journeys in my early twenties to discover the deepest version of self. What I present to you here is a continuation of the journey. I am happy, I am healed, and I am as healthy as I can be. Today, I am sharing a spiritual, emotional, and health journey with you inside of these lines.
