Forgiving the Unforgivable
Overcoming the Bitter Legacy of Intimate Wounds
Paperback ISBN: 0020322305
"A clearheaded study of what life can do to us and possible ways to begin again." --Carl A. Whitaker, M.D., author of Midnight Musings of a Family Therapist and coauthor of The Family Crucible Women and men who have been deeply hurt by someone they love often experience a pain that spirals out to undermine their work, relationships, self-esteem, and even their sense of reality. In Forgiving the Unforgivable, author Beverly Flanigan, a leading authority on forgiveness, defines such unforgivable injuries, explains their poisonous effects, and then guides readers out of the paralyzing anger and resentment. As a Fellow of the Kellogg Foundation, Flanigan conducted a pioneering study of forgiveness, and from that study, from her clinical practice, and from her many years of teaching, researching, and conducting professional workshops and seminars, she devised a unique six-stage program, presented here. Filled with inspiring real-life examples, Forgiving the Unforgivable is both a practical and a comforting guide to recovery and healing.

Dreams and What They Mean to You
Paperback ISBN: 0875422888
You dream every night. Experts from Plato to Freud, Aristotle to Jung have shared their wisdom about dreams. And still it is rare that a clear, incisive book that explains dreams comes around. But now there is Dreams and What They Mean to You by Migene González-Wippler. This book explains the workings of the mind, how dreams function, and how to interpret them. Your dreams are filled with symbols, from general ones such as colors to specific objects and events. This book includes a huge dream symbol dictionary which gives interpretations of hundreds of symbols. If you have a dream which includes a pickle, that symbol means you are wasting your energy on frivolous pastimes. A dream of a magazine means you will receive news from a distance. If you dream of a dragon it means you allow yourself to be ruled by your passions and should try to overcome your temper and violent nature. Each dream symbol is also associated with two numbers. By keeping a record of the symbols in your dreams you may be able to find numbers that will bring you luck or be used for other purposes. What a handy tool this is! Besides interpreting dreams, you can also control them if you know how! This book can give you the techniques to remember dreams easily, dream more effectively, recall your dreams, and even learn to become aware that you are dreaming. This can lead to prophetic dreams and your ability to interpret them. If you have ever had a dream that you knew was meaningful, but couldn't figure it out, this book is a must. If you're looking to understand yourself better, to discover your secret inner motivations, you'll want this book, too. In fact, you should keep this book by your bed so you can check it when you get up.
The Courage to Grieve
Paperback ISBN: 0060911859
This unusual self-help book about surviving grief offers the reader comfort and inspiration. Each of us will face some loss, sorrow and disappointment in our lives, and The Courage to Grieve provides the specific help we need to enable us to face our grief fully and to recover and grow from the experience. Although the book emphasizes the response to the death of a loved one, The Courage to Grieve can help with every kind of loss and grief. Judy Tatelbaum gives us a fresh look at understanding grief, showing us that grief is a natural, inevitable human experience, including all the unexpected, intense and uncomfortable emotions like sorrow, guilt, loneliness, resentment, confusion, or even the temporary loss of the will to live. The emphasis is to clarify and offer help, and the tone is spiritual, optimistic, creative and easy to understand. Judy Tatelbaum provides excellent advice on how to help oneself and others get through the immediate experience of death and the grief that follows, as well as how to understand the special grief of children. Particularly useful are the techniques for completing or "finishing" grief--counteracting the popular misconception that grief never ends. The Courage to Grieve shows us how to live life with the ultimate courage: not fearing death. This book is about so much more than death and grieving it is about life and joy and growth.
