Every now and again, one comes across a book that opens the heart and lets the soul sing. Such a book is a window on the wonder and joy, the beauty and the depths of the world around us. Such a book leads us from one jeweled insight to another, like the Genie giving Aladdin a tour of the treasure cave. Once found, such a book joins a precious few in a privileged place on one's bookshelf, to be taken down, reread, and savored over and over. Soul Medicine is exactly such a book.
