Publisher's Summary

A gifted teacher explores how both hardship and joy can lead us back to the sacredness of ordinary life. 

Is healing a matter of solving a problem, curing a sickness, or making our wounds disappear? 'In my experience,' states depth psychotherapist and meditation teacher Matt Licata, 'true healing is not a state where we become liberated from uncomfortable feelings, but one in which we are free and flexible to welcome our complete experience - whether happy or difficult - more fully.' With A Healing Space, Dr Licata invites us to explore a more vital sense of wellness - one that does not put us in opposition to life's hardship, but instead welcomes all experience as part of the soul's majestic vastness. 

'While there is a part of us that very genuinely wishes to heal, awaken, and transform,' states Dr. Licata, 'there is a lesser known, hidden part invested in maintaining things the way they are.' Through metaphors and teachings from diverse traditions such as alchemy, neuroscience, mindfulness, contemplative spirituality, Buddhism and depth psychology, he illuminates the spiritual journey with profound subtlety and deep insight. If you've found yourself wondering why years or even decades of self-improvement, meditation, prayer or therapy hasn't resulted in a feeling of wholeness or completeness, you may be ready to try A Healing Space.

Okay

It was difficult to listen to the narration. The prose merged into something not always making sense almost sounding like new age babble. The book didn’t live up to its title though there were some gems that I’ve heard before like what is painful needs to be held not healed.
