For over 3000 years, Ayurveda, the ancient Indian science of living, has addressed itself to the fundamental principles of good health and longevity. It has developed a tradition of medicine and a system of treatment based on the inherent ability of the human body to rejuvenate, to heal and to restore its natural balance.
This teaching manual is for counsellors and carers and is written from the Christian perspective. It is ideal for counsellors who wish to know how to incorporate Christian thinking into their counselling methods, while also respecting the background of the client/patient. HEALING RELATIONSHIPS is essentially a practical guide to one-to-one therapy. The approach combines Kofler's personality model, developed over many years, with Professor Petruska Clarkson’s theory of the ﬁve therapeutic relationships. Exercises are included for the reader and summaries help to clarify and reinforce the text. While Jung, Freud, Rogers, Adler and others provide material for this book, ﬁrst and foremost it shows counsellors how they may be able to point the client towards Christ as model and mentor, and thus how that damaged person might ﬁnd true inner healing.
Kindness and Joy
When we act kindly, others are nicer to us. Kindness puts us in touch with a deep sense of joy-the joy of lifting another’s burden, the joy of being of service, the joy of transcending our selﬁsh desires to care for another. "Should there be any surprise that acts of kindness that connect us to others and to the Divine are followed by the sacred emotion of joy?" asks the author. Kindness and joy are deeply connected and are as readily accessible as the next small courtesy you pay to another. By explaining What kindness is and What it is not, Psychiatrist Harold G. Koenig outlines steps to help you become more kind and learn how to express it in everyday situations. He shares the research that indicates those who care about others live longer, happier lives and experience improved physical and mental health.
