Publisher's Summary

A Vision of the Warrior's Journey to Wholeness

As veterans from a new generation come back from overseas, our culture's lack of resources for returning warriors has become a greater problem than ever. "Lifelong suffering after war is not inevitable," says Dr. Edward Tick. "But in our culture, we have unwittingly forced our veterans to carry the moral and social of burdens of warfare alone." On Restoring the Warrior's Soul, Dr. Tick offers tools for healing and guidance to help veterans cope with the life-changing effects of combat and find a new sense of peace and purpose.

Practical Wisdom for Healing the Wounds of War

What we call PTSD is just the latest name for a phenomenon warriors have dealt with since the dawn of time. Dr. Tick explores both the visible and invisible wounding of war, then draws upon both ancient and modern sources to show us a path for transformation, wholeness, and wisdom. In these six audio sessions, he outlines a road map for the returning warrior to find a new and honorable role in society, and carry forth their service into civilian life.

The warrior's journey touches us all - from those who serve to their families, neighbors, caregivers, and coworkers. "In a healthy society," says Dr. Tick, "each of us must understand our own role in the sacred contract between warriors and the culture they protect." With Restoring the Warrior's Soul, Dr. Tick provides invaluable guidance to everyone touched by war so we can create a culture that values our returning warriors with respect, dignity, and love.

Every vet should read this book

This is an amazing book! It reaches out to the heart of the warriors who have served our country for the last 17 years! I am proud to be a part of that group. This book has created a new perspective in my life.

I found this healing and a salve. Even though I am not a soldier

As a believer in non-violence I have had an uneasy relationship with war, and I’ve not known how to interact with soldiers. But this has helped me tremendously. Anyone who lives in a country that has fishy a war desperately needs to hear these healing wise words. We are all broken until we all heal together. Hiding and keeping things private only makes things worse for everyone. This is sooo good.

Meh

It is okay depending on what you are looking for. More of an overview of trauma with a mixture of religious sermons.

The path to healing from PTSD - field tested and explained

This is it. This is the path to healing. How effective is the work of Ed Tick? I got home from Iraq in 2004. In 2008 i survived a suicide attempt from PTSD. My first stop on the journey to healing was a Soldiers Heart retreat. Since that first encounter i have traveled the country helping veterans complete one or the steps outlined in this book. Since 2010 I’ve prevented 33 veteran suicides. If that can be accomplished by effectively exercising just one of the steps, imagine what we could accomplish if we implemented them all. Buy this book, read this book, follow the path. It works! It heals!
