Inhaltsangabe: When diagnosed with cancer or another life-threatening illness, all concerned — patient, family, friends — typically feel frightened and helpless. When Dr. Roseman read the transcript of Joan of Arc?s trials, she realized that this beloved heroine had much to offer women patients especially. In addition to her fierce faith, the 14th century teenager faced her incredible challenges with remarkable fortitude, moxie, and even humor. Roseman here uses Joan?s words and experiences to help readers access their own innate courage and reclaim their personal power. Brief chapters highlight issues, such as Trust, Wounding, and Army of Support, with a quotation from Joan, ways for readers to relate to it, and a guided meditation on the subject. These same issues are then re-imagined as “Gateways to Courage? through writing, contemplative, and arts-based exercises. Including strategies for optimizing one?s healthcare and communications, this wonderfully original resource is as powerful and inspiring as Joan herself.
Reclaim Inner Strength, Courage, and Faith
Joan of Arc, the fourteenth-century teenager who led the armies of France before facing the Inquisition, stands as the quintessential icon of feminine courage and faith. These are the attributes most needed by women facing a diagnosis of cancer or any life-threatening disease. Drawing directly from the words Joan spoke at her trial, author Janet Lynn Roseman presents thirty-one Flames of Courage and thirty-one Gateways to be used over the course of a month or a year to resurrect inner fortitude and create an environment for healing. Her approach encompasses body, mind, and spirit and will help you access and reclaim your personal power to find healing and peace in your journey.
