Finding the way home: a compassionate approach to illness
"Finding the Way Home" offers a way--through Gayle Heiss's own experience of chronic illness--to understand and even to realize 'wholeness.' Her illness prompted her to seek out others, to hear their stories, to tell them her own, and to tell all these stories, with their implications and conclusions, to us. Heiss is direct, conversational, and immediate in her style. She writes compellingly, and emphasizes interdependence as the antidote to the illness of our time. For her, it comes down to people helping each other. To those in the healing profession, to those who suffer from an illness that has changed their lives, to hospice volunteers, to those in the ministry, to those who regularly visit the ill and elderly, to those with aging parents, to everyone--since we are all "human, vulnerable, and mortal," this book is helpful, and it may even be healing.
