Product Description

From Library Journal

Erik Erikson's eight-stage theory of the human life-cycle is starting to receive the attention it deserves from spiritual writers. This book is especially exciting, given the popularity of its authors in the charismatic/inner healing community and its fresh, jargon-free style. Devoting one chapter to each stage, the authors share personal memories (both positive and negative) and discuss the kinds of prayer that naturally emerge from the successful resolution of characteristic developmental crisis. With a resource list in the appendix. EC

HASH(0x9c6609cc) out of 5 stars Helpful, healing wisdom. July 26 2009
By Paul M. Dubuc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
While some of the examples and studies in this book are a bit dated, I found it more helpful and enjoyable the more I read it. This book applies healing prayer to the characteristic developmental problems encountered by people during Erik Erikson's eight stages of human development. This book draws heavily on scripture and is very Christ-centered in its approach. Present encounters with Christ help heal the pain of past memories and abuse. At first I was a bit skeptical of the way some of the case histories are presented. Some of their descriptions made it seem like healing prayer involved sitting an imaginary Jesus mannequin on my lap and putting the therapeutic words into his mouth to make me feel better. This may be a tendency to guard against but trying this imaginative exercise can simply be a matter of setting the stage for the spirit of Christ to do his healing work. Avoid trying to force a result. Instead, allow plenty of opportunity for repeated attempts, and trust in the faithfulness of the living Christ to fill the setting with his own uncoerced presence and purpose. This book is well worth the time spent reading it.

HASH(0x9c660a20) out of 5 stars A book that changed my life July 4 2012
By Aunt Hill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's been about twenty years since I first read this book in seminary. I liked it so much that I bought a bunch of copies to hand out to parishioners.

The method of prayer suggested in this book is ideal for those who pray "visually" or are able to have a genuine two-way conversation with God in prayer. Because the authors are Jesuits and this is the way Jesuits generally pray, they just assume that this method will be natural for everyone.

I've found that for those who don't pray "visually" and/or do not find themselves having a genuine two-way conversation with God, the same results can be achieved by focusing on bodily sensations while doing the exercises in this book.

Questions you might ask yourself are: "when I think about this issue from this stage of my life, do I have any tension or sensations in my body?" "What is the tension/feeling telling me?" "Does the tension in my body change if I give the feeling to Christ?" "Does the feeling change if I think about a different situation?"

Even if you don't "see" or "hear" God, you will feel God's truth in the sensations in your body.

When I read the book, I spent at least a week on each chapter, giving myself time to meditate on each stage of life. Not only did I find healing in the book, but I learned a lot about how to work with others who need to have a conversation with God about their own situation.

This is a book full of wisdom and depth. It is a treasure!

However, fellow readers, do not let Amazon forget that we are upset about the investigative report done by the NYTimes showing that Amazon uses the equivalent of a nuclear power plant's worth of energy--much of it dirty diesel--at a very inefficient rate. We need to see change or we need to shop at bookstores.

If you read HEALING OF MEMORIES, read this one. It ties in also with HEALING LIFE'S HURTS. They are a good package deal to embark on.
