An exploration of our potential for personal transformation through experiences of pain and crisis.

Through years of working with congregants in pastoral-care situ-ations, Mary Murray Shelton, a popular leader with the United Church of Religious Science, has observed that difficult experiences in our lives are opportunities for us to move forward in profound ways. In Guidance from the Darkness, she offers an alternative interpretation of what happens in times of darkness, that provides hope and that steers the sufferer into new realms of power, love, beauty, strength, and success.

Guidance from the Darkness is for anyone who wants to grow through pain rather than be shut down by it. Going beyond symptom relief to the deeper causes of pain, Shelton shows how our inner divine wisdom can custom-make a permanent healing that involves changing both behavior and thought.
