Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“A night-light for times of darkness and loss, enabling us each to find our own way home to our wholeness and the rest of our lives.”
— Rachel Naomi Remen, MD, author of Kitchen Table Wisdom

“Should be required reading for everyone who has had a brain injury. It will serve as a great help to caregivers as well. And it could be an inspiring source of support for anyone on a feasible but unpredictable path of recovery for whom the principal ingredients for sustaining their diligence are tenacity and true grit.”
— Sylvia Boorstein, PhD, author of Happiness Is an Inside Job

“Reading this book is like being with a friend who is warm, wise, gentle, and powerfully insightful — an articulate and really interesting friend who can share with you profound healing opportunities that can come with unexpected catastrophe.”
— Martin Rossman, MD, founder, TheHealingMind.org, and author of Guided Imagery for Self-Healing

“From ancient times, there have been people called ‘wounded healers’ who use their own experience with illness to heal others. Alison Bonds Shapiro is one of the outstanding wounded healers of our time, and her superb book offers healing lessons for us all.”
— Roger Walsh, MD, PhD, professor, University of California Medical School, and author of Essential Spirituality
