Description

Every day new research attests to the link between spirituality and health. In Healing Zen, nursing professor and Zen teacher Ellen Birx focuses on the Buddhist concept of "healing as wholeness" and demonstrates the practice of awareness and meditation that can help restore energy, build endurance, and suffuse our lives with compassion and joy.

Drawing on her twenty years' experience as a nurse, Birx takes us on a deeply humane and sensitive journey through the natural process of healing. She shares inspiring stories of her patients, students, family, and friends, as well as teachings from the Zen tradition, to reveal how we can find wholeness in the midst of illness.

This compact and beautifully packaged book makes a heartfelt gift for health professionals, caregivers, patients, or anyone struggling with the demands of life.
