The Healing Imagination
The Meeting of Psyche and Soul
192 pages, 2nd edition, ISBN 3-85630-721-4 / 978-3-85630-721-9
This eloquent work speaks of the centrality of imagination in the life of the spirit. Ann and Barry Ulanov describe the imagination as a bridge between the psyche and the spirit.
Using rich imagery drawn from literature, film, and their own experience as therapists, they unlock for us the healing power of our imagination.
"Imagination heals by building a bridge sturdy enough to link us up, each of us, to the river of being already present in us, to the currents flowing through us and among us in our unconscious life."
After describing this healing power of imagination, the authors go on to show how it is vital in the spiritual life: in preaching, prayer, teaching, counseling, and politics.
