Is healing a matter of solving a problem, curing a sickness, or making our wounds disappear? With A Healing Space, Dr. Licata invites us to explore a more vital sense of wellness - one that does not put us in opposition to life's hardship, but instead welcomes all experience as part of the soul's majestic vastness.
"While there is a part of us that very genuinely wishes to heal, awaken, and transform," writes Dr. Licata, "there is a lesser known, hidden part invested in maintaining things the way they are." Through metaphors and teachings from diverse traditions such as alchemy, neuroscience, mindfulness, contemplative spirituality, Buddhism, and depth psychology, he illuminates the spiritual journey with profound subtlety and deep insight. If you've found yourself wondering why years or even decades of self-improvement, meditation, prayer, or therapy hasn't resulted in a feeling of wholeness or completeness, you may be ready to enter A Healing Space.
