Letters to a Young Healer
Lessons for a Compassionate Heart
After apprenticing at the feet of a saintly old man who carved charms that helped with the healing of souls, young Madeline had more questions than answers. She reached out to her uncle James, a physician with a rich spiritual life, and in a series of twelve letters he reveals to her the mysteries of healing, consciousness, and spiritual growth. James counsels that a spirit of healing can be brought into every kind of work as long as one brings to it sufficient intent, strength of awareness, and integrity to be in accord with the highest kind of love. With guidance on “cleaning house” within one’s soul, recognizing false healers, strengthening one’s vitality, understanding the mysteries of faith and reason, compassion, sex, imagination, reverence, dying, and more, James points Madeline to live life in a way that will, “dry a tear in the eye of God.” Letters to a Young Healer is a beautiful sequel to The Charm Carver.
