Tails of a Healer

Love of a poet came from my whole heart and the love that I have for writing. I really enjoyed writing love of a poet. This book sent me on a ride of different feelings.some feelings were emotional. This book brought spiritual grouth,love,happiness,laughter,and sadness to my mind,spirit,and soul. The love that I have for writing my poems came from what God has fed to my mind and my heart. Now I am able to feed to the world. What inspired me was my three children. My youngest daughter shaquanda,who inspired me. I surely let her know that God was feeding to my mind. I have a need to speak. she responded,''write about it.'' you have always love to write and have been every since you were my age.'' she said I'll tell you what,you write this book and I'll write one too. ''I said ''O.K.'' I got half way through and asked her,''how far along are you?''she begain to smirk. I asked ,''what's so funny? and how many have you done?''she responded,''one'' so she tricked me to get me started. Then my son Caleb walks in my room and look over some of my poems. he then goes in his room and comes out later that night. My son took out the time to create some sketches to inhance my book,and I loved my book even more. Then my oldest daughter Jasmine,she was such a big motivater. Her honesty really helped me with what needed to be changed. People kept telling me to slow down and take my time,but God kept feeding my mind. So therefore,I became curious. I then wanted to see the end results. even after work everyday untile 4:30 and 5:00 every morning God was speaking to me. even when I was asleep,God was speaking to me. The lord would wake me all the time to write. It was a must. Who am I? I am a single mom. I live in memphis Tennessee. I am 38 years old.

Tales of a Wounded Healer

Tales of a Wounded Healer begins by revealing the 27-year odyssey of renowned psychotherapist Mariah Fenton Gladis through her diagnosis and subsequent life with Lou Gehrig's Disease, and how that diagnosis catapulted her to envision and develop a new method of psychotherapy that dramatically facilitates healing and change. Mariah turns her former approach inside out by moving from encouraging people to cope with their lot in life, to empowering them to understand and provide for the compelling force and potential of their own personal needs. The book shows that when met with respect, love and compassion, human needs can arm people with the capacity to transform their lives and contribute to the healing of others. In this book, Mariah Fenton Gladis presents strong practical and theoretical instruction for the concept of creating exact moments of healing; moments grounded in awareness that precisely respond to and provide for the emergent need of an individual, family or community. These are the moments that produce substantial shifts in a person's worldview, character, and capacity to create meaningful contact with themselves, others and their environment. Tales of a Wounded Healer presents true stories of people who have changed their lives through this profound work and describes the seminal moments that shaped their transformation. These stories focus on specific moments of healing in detail and illustrate such themes as the importance of receptivity in healthy human functioning, recovery from post traumatic stress syndrome, the need for supportive community, mending fractured families, creating self-esteem and empowerment, development of a compassionate relationship withself and others, and recovery from sexual abuse and trauma. Throughout the book, the Mariah Fenton Gladis addresses the reader in an attempt to inspire and educate and make the chapters applicable to the readers' lives. About the Author Mariah Fenton Gladis, MSS, QCSW, is the Founder and Clinical Director of the Pennsylvania Gestalt Center for Psychotherapy and Training in Malvern, Pennsylvania.

Healing Insanity  a Study of Igbo Medicine in Contemporary Nigeria

Healing Insanity: A Study of Igbo Medicine in Contemporary Nigeria is an original and in-depth study on endogenous medical system in an African society. It is craftily written and provides solid insight, through case studies and theory, into how insanity affects patients and the society. Particularly, it explores various collective representations and strategies regarding insanity and healing as it examines the healing institutions, healers, and ritual cults. The central question is, given the patterns of healing, how do the Igbo shape the incidence and symptoms of insanity, define its aetiology, and provide healers with culture-specific resources and skills to address this illness? The focus became increasingly centred on bodily semantics and endogenous knowledge systems and practices. Dr. Patrick Iroegbus work is a very valuable and rare study and has appeared at a desirable time. It is, for an African society, a comprehensive study of the many ways Igbo people, in their practical, routinelike attitudes and body-centred experiences, as well as in their more reflective aetiologic knowledge and healing institutions, relate to the phenomenon of insanity, or ara, in the cultural parlance. As the first of its kind, reminiscent of, and assured by, the various remarks of Igbo scholars and leaders at various meetings and discourses, the task this work has set out to accomplish is a very brave one. The authors account of his fieldwork experiences and adopted techniques illustrates his initiation, revealing him as a genuine ethnographer who is a friend of people and at ease with his field. With both the far-seeing and inspiring analysis of Igbo medicine, life, and culture accounted for in the work, the book stands out for ethnographers, teachers, students, leaders, policymakers, and the general public. This is a book that deserves to be read as it shapes the critical path toward understanding ways of healing insanity in a culture-specific context, crosscutting perspectives for a relationship between indigenous healing and the biomedical sphere. Prof. Ren Devisch (Africa Research Centre, University of Leuven) This book is written with a clear purpose for everyone to readto understand and heal insanityand indeed provides a thick piece of cultural philosophy and vernacular of Igbo medicine in hopes of putting cultural wisdom in pursuit of integral health care development. Prof. Pantaleon Iroegbu (Professor of Philosophy, Major-Seminary, Ekpoma, January 2006) To read this book, as I did, is to get the benefit of Dr. Patrick Iroegbus ethnographic insight for an archetypical African healing system in Igboland. It offers a fascinating theory of symbolic release that speaks of African symbolic action and knowledge system. Dr. Paul Komba, Esq. (University of Cambridge)

Rock Quarries and the Manufacture  Trade  and Uses of Stone Tools and Symbolic Stones in the Central Highlands of Irian Jaya  Indonesia

From both ethnoarchaeological and ethnogenesis perspectives, the complete cycle of quarrying, manufacture, trade, and uses of stone tools and symbolic stones, and the creation of other kinds of material goods and associated behavior within cultural systems of different language-speaking groups are documented and analyzed. Two adjacent stone tool use and trade regions are defined by the distribution and uses of mutually exclusive kinds and styles of profane ground stone tool blades. In the Grand Valley and West region, ground stone are and adze blades, knives, and chisels are manufactured and traded outward along complex trade linkages from two internal independently operated and geographically separated quarry and manufacturing centers, to the exclusion of adze blades and knives of distinctly different styles that are manufactured and traded within the adjoining Yali and East region. Tool blades trade freely across language boundaries within the two regions. Profane symbolic stones trade across the regional boundary from west to east. Slightly differing types of quarry ownership, operational technology (including uses of fire), and production techniques are discussed and shown at the different quarry-manufacturing centers. As much as 25-40 percent of axe, adze blades, and chisels were removed by users from secular use and converted to spiritually powerful sacred symbolic ancestor stones and to empowered sacred tools, all hierophanies of great cultural importance. Adze blades and chisels were of particular importance in their uses as power objects in shamans' religio-medical kits. Profane display-exchange stones and sacred ancestor stones were the cultural binders without which the cultures would have ceased to exist as they did. These symbolic stones were combined with perishable organic materials as decoration to visually transmit important cultural information. In addition, the uses of fiber string, stems of grass, a few leaves, and a certain root were essential to maintain the continuum of supernatural power from unknown places in the domain of the unseen into those durable stone objects that had been selected to be made sacred. The sociopolitical, and to a lesser extent the socioeconomic implications of the above factors for these inhabitants of Highlands Irian Jaya also are discussed and analyzed systemically.

Tales of a Female Nomad

The true story of an ordinary woman living an extraordinary existence all over the world. “Gelman doesn’t just observe the cultures she visits, she participates in them, becoming emotionally involved in the people’s lives. This is an amazing travelogue.” —Booklist At the age of forty-eight, on the verge of a divorce, Rita Golden Gelman left an elegant life in L.A. to follow her dream of travelling the world, connecting with people in cultures all over the globe. In 1986, Rita sold her possessions and became a nomad, living in a Zapotec village in Mexico, sleeping with sea lions on the Galapagos Islands, and residing everywhere from thatched huts to regal palaces. She has observed orangutans in the rain forest of Borneo, visited trance healers and dens of black magic, and cooked with women on fires all over the world. Rita’s example encourages us all to dust off our dreams and rediscover the joy, the exuberance, and the hidden spirit that so many of us bury when we become adults.
