In Radical Hope and the Healing Power of Illness, Jungian analyst Bud Harris PhD helps listeners examine the emotional impact of illness and the life lessons, self-knowledge, and freedom that coping with difficult circumstances can provide.
Jungian psychology teaches that illnesses and problems can help people grow - to move beyond "normal" existence and the myth of "the good life". Harris guides listeners toward a transformation in thinking - to a more holistic, authentic way to process the emotional effects and the deeper meanings of illness. This guide's goal is not to "fix" sufferers or ignore and bury their emotional challenges. Rather, it leads them through a step-by-step process aimed at letting hardship open their minds and hearts to the possibilities of life, uncover inner strength, and become their own authentic selves.
Along the journey, Harris provides guideposts - checkpoints that help listeners examine their reactions to what they've been learning and apply the concepts to their own lives.
Because physical illness has a heartfelt effect on the patient's entire support network, loved ones, caregivers, and medical practitioners can also use this guide to connect with, better understand, and impactfully process illness and loss - toward a renewed, reenergized outlook on life.
