Introduction to Books for Healing
Welcome to Books for Healing!
With this introduction to books for healing, you will find out about books that not only inspire, but also enrich your soul and motivate you to make changes for your personal growth.
This section is devoted to connecting you with healing books that can help you in your journey toward wholeness. Have you ever opened the cover of a book, waded into the text, and sometime later found yourself transformed by the experience? Have you ever delved into a book and discovered some piece of information critical to your personal growth? Have you experienced your mind opening to new possibilities as you turned the pages of a book that suddenly captured your attention as you browsed your local bookstore? These are the healing books we aim to include in this section, reviewed by people who are themselves on their own healing journeys of personal transformation. Included in this section are books that cover a variety of topics in the healing arts, but also books about personal empowerment, spiritual growth, ecology and medicine, food and health, divination and mythology. We are casting our net wide, to capture a plethora of publications. The common thread is that each healing book addresses some aspect of healing or growing whole. So, feed your mind on this literary feast and be prepared to grow!
While you’re feasting and growing on your healing book reviews and recommendations, please leave your comments after the reviews that move you, and feel free to start a dialogue or participate in an existing one on the Forum, which you can find in the Editor’s Corner on the Books for Healing page. I’d love to hear your thoughts and opinions on what you find here. As I end this introduction to books for healing, I am looking forward to learning of your healing journeys!
