As the subject depicts, 'Sacred Therapy,' the book brings tremendous enlightment and healing.
Frankel has written about a complex topic in a manner that is personal and inviting. Whether you are Jewish or not, spiritual or not, interested in therapy or not, the book is welcoming and accessible. The many parables and quotes from Rabbis through history are wonderfully apt. The book has a quality of deep teaching. The writing flows effortlessly. This is a book to enjoy the first time through, and to re-read and refer to throughout the course of a lifetime.
I highly recommend Sacred Therapy, by Estelle Frankel. It is both a thoroughly enjoyable book to read and also full of useful teachings that can help us lead our lives in a more mindful way. The stories mostly come from the Jewish tradition and are often both entertaining and instructive. The chapter that focused on seeing the good in others particularly resonated with me. It might sound like a simple minded idea however, as explained by Frankel, it is a very powerful practice. It can transform how we relate to others and also help to transform those we interact with in our lives. This is just one of many wise teachings found in Sacred Therapy. I highly recommend Frankel's book.
