Jan Goldstein, an internationally recognised rabbi and educator, offers a sensitive and valuable primer in how to draw strength from pain and find the way through trauma to personal growth.
In this immensely affecting and empowering guide, Jan Goldstein teaches readers how to take their most emotionally painful life events - their spiritual wounds - and transform them into a source of power and well being. Goldstein's life-affirming program is inspired by his own heartbreak: the February morning when he was faced with the sudden news that his 12-year marriage was ending, leaving Goldstein with primary custody of his three small children.
Though paralysed at first by feelings of loss and depression, Goldstein eventually discovered that the pain allowed him and his children a deeper appreciation for the simple moments of joy - that his once 'broken' family was succeeding not despite its wounds, but because of them.
In 'Sacred Wounds', Goldstein reveals the secret to finding strength in challenging and often traumatic events, outlining a life-changing nine-step process to help readers move through heartache and toward healing.
