Being diagnosed with a serious illness is shocking and can leave chaos, confusion, fear, and anxiety in its wake. But what if we looked at illness as a catalyst for deep healing of our whole selves? In his guidebook Transcending Illness through the Power of Belief, seasoned psychotherapist Adolfo Quezada reminds us of our essential wholeness as human beings and encourages us to live in that perspective-even when facing illness or death.
Quezada relies on his twenty-five years of experience providing counseling to thousands suffering from the effects of trauma and chronic illnesses to share a simple message: we heal from the inside out. For those who must travel the path of serious illness, Quezada offers ways to face sickness head-on and use it as an opportunity to awaken faith, remember holiness, and give purpose to burdens. Through touching personal anecdotes, Quezada also teaches that good can indeed come of illness by encouraging the unwell to become more compassionate, live with greater purpose, and touch the lives of others in profound ways.
Transcending Illness through the Power of Belief is an inspirational guidebook for anyone impacted by illness, end of life issues, and the important role of faith in these stages of life.
"As we read these pages, we discover that our embrace of illness and death actually becomes the source of interior peace we may have not yet experienced."
