"...represents an act of passion for the profession, a window to a personal journey, and an invitation to view the nursing profession's contribution to healing in a Jungian context....The work's value comes from its integration of scientific, creative, and spiritual philosophies as a core context for the complex nurse-patient interaction involved in the promotion of a healing environment....Recommended."--Choice Nursing is at a crossroads, facing shortages of unparalleled proportion at a time when society is experiencing health care challenges of great magnitude.

Do images heal? Yes they do. That is the thesis of renowned photographer A. J. Meek with these photographs of the clouds paired with children’s perceptions of hope. “The feeling of freedom is exhilarating,” Meek says in his photographer’s comments for the work contained within. “The total package of sky and children’s perception is designed to evoke a positive healing attitude within the viewer. When studied and meditated upon, the audience cannot maintain a negative thought.” Heavily influenced by Native American culture, these pictures, which were made in New Mexico and Louisiana, promote a feeling of well-being and inspiration. To be in the world but not of it is certainly the road less traveled and the most challenging for there are no earthly rewards for this choice¾only peace.
This volume should not be required reading, but required study for everyone offering care in America.
Author: Tom Balles
Category: Body, Mind & Spirit
“This volume should not be required reading, but required study for everyone offering care in America. The biggest complaint about care in the USA is that “nobody listens.” Tom Balles’ book lays out, in simple detail, the basic human habits that we lost in our addiction to technology. Care is about individuals caring for other individuals.” ROBERT M. DUGGAN, MA, MAc (UK), Dipl Ac, (NCCAOM), author of Common Sense for the Healing Arts and Breaking the Iron Triangle: Reducing Health-Care Costs in Corporate America “Becoming a Healing Presence is simply elegant. Tom Balles calls all those who offer care to a high standard – to be present, with senses wide open. He offers uncomplicated practices for exploration; inviting us to sharpen our attention and deepen our awareness . . . . The book serves head and heart and will transform the caring experience for both giver and receiver.” BARBARA CATLIN, Founder and Director, Bigger Conversations, Columbia, Maryland Over the last thirty years the delivery of healthcare has gone through enormous changes. The insurance industry, managed-care, the use of pharmaceuticals, and high-tech medicine have all grown exponentially. In the midst of these changes have we developed a bit of amnesia? In offering our care, have we forgotten the capacity of human beings to help heal other human beings? Have we overlooked the need to cultivate ourselves as instruments of healing? Are we in danger of losing the healing power of the relationship between those giving and receiving care? The tribe of caregivers is in need of some potent medicine. Whether you’re at home caring for an aging or ailing family member, trained to be a volunteer, or working as a health-care professional, you’ll find powerful elixirs in these essays. They’ll remind you of the many healing capacities you possess as a caregiver, and of the great strength to be found in the healing relationship. Becoming a healing presence requires practice. Each essay is accompanied by practices that will transform your care and compassion into effective action and help you focus on what truly matters when offering care.
Here is a book that takes seriously the response of Jesus to those who cry out to him in faith for his healing presence and who look for that on going presence in his community that is called the church.
Author: Peter Varengo
Publisher: Wipf and Stock
The Gospel of Mark is generally accepted as the earliest of the four accounts of the life and ministry of Jesus. Central to Mark's portrait of Jesus is an emphasis on his healing presence among the people of God - a sign of the living and active presence of God, offering not only physical healing but completeness and restoration of spirit in the midst of brokenness and pain. For Mark, this is the God revealed by Jesus in his public ministry: a God driven by an obsessive persistence to reach out to people in healing, sustenance and companionship. One of the ways we learn from the long teaching tradition of our church is by listening and sharing the Scriptures, broken for us each Sunday at Mass, offered to us by faithful preaching of the Word of God or by thoughtful reflection in classroom and other settings. The task of preachers, teachers and commentators is somehow to bring the selected readings to life so that they connect with our lives as we gather to worship, to listen, to be strengthened and encouraged in our life of faith week by week. This new series of reflections on the Sunday Gospels in the year of Mark are not concerned primarily to be a commentary on the text but on the message of the text; their purpose is not so much to inform as to inspire. The reflections by a master craftsman are written to unpack the Gospel - not simply Mark's special theological emphases but his teaching about how we are to live with one another in the stuff of the everyday. Integral to the book is the author's assumption that life and faith belong together; that God, the source of life and wholeness in our lives, is lavish with gifts to us, patient and energising for completion and healing, for life in its fullness. Here is a book that takes seriously the response of Jesus to those who cry out to him in faith for his healing presence and who look for that on going presence in his community that is called the church. The book is for priests and preachers, parents and teachers, and for all of us who seek the transformation and fullness of life that God offers us in the breaking of the Word and who have the courage and the wisdom to accept the challenges of the Word and incarnate its message in our daily lives. Peter Varengo is a Salesian priest presently engaged in full time Adult Retreat Ministry. He studied Theology at the Salesian University in Rome; and Religious Education in Maynooth (Ireland) and in Boston College (USA). He has taught at Catholic Theological College in Melbourne and been involved in parish ministry for many years.

Author: Richard Cork
Fascinated by the astonishingly rich history of art in hospitals, the well-known critic and art historian Richard Cork has written a brilliant account of the subject. These works, which include masterpieces of Western art, have been produced from Renaissance Florence and Siena to the 20th century. Piero della Francesca made a painting for a hospital in Sansepolcro, as did Hans Memling in Bruges, Matthias Grünewald in Isenheim, El Greco in Toledo, Rembrandt in Amsterdam, William Hogarth in London, Vincent van Gogh in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, and Marc Chagall in Jerusalem. The book's sumptuous images offer a rich range of subjects, from Francisco Goya's dramatic confrontations with suffering to Giovanni Battista Tiepolo's sublime, airborne celebrations of resurrection and heavenly ecstasy. Some, like Leonardo da Vinci's incisive drawings, are based on uncompromising firsthand study of hospital patients. Others explore a redemptive world where Christ is born, orphans are rescued, and plague victims are given shelter. In this wide-ranging survey, Cork investigates how such artworks have been used to humanize hospitals, to alleviate their clinical bleakness, and to offer genuine, lasting pleasure to patients, staff, and visitors.
