A woman's book of life : the biology, psychology, and spirituality of the feminine life cycle by Joan Borysenko( Book )

25 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 1,159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Woman's Book of Life teaches women how to align with the physical changes that occur at every stage of life in order to maximize health and well-being. In the growth of early childhood, hormonal ups and downs, the possibility of childbearing, and growing older are powerful keys to unlocking a woman's potential. Those notorious temperature changes in menopause are not hot flashes, they're power surges, and A Woman's Book of Life traces the compelling biopsychospiritual reality of the move into authentic power at midlife. This is a book for any woman, of any generation. It allows the reader to look back and see the forgotten gifts of childhood, or to look ahead in celebration of what's to come. Whatever her age, no woman will be able to come away from this book without a greater appreciation for who women are, in their bodies, their emotions, their souls. Borysenko offers a rare chance to understand the gifts of being female and to celebrate the power of the feminine life cycle

Fire in the soul : a new psychology of spiritual optimism by Joan Borysenko( Book )

6 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gifted healer Joan Borysenko believes that the wounds we suffer - and heal from - can be gateways to a transformation of the spirit, one that not only nourishes our souls but blesses us with the potential to help our world. In this enlightening book, Dr. Borysenko goes beyond psychology as currently practiced and taps a deeper vein of healing. She reveals to us the power of spiritual optimism, a philosophy that views life crises as opportunities for personal growth and spiritual homecoming. Drawing on her own experiences with tragedy and illness, as well as on anecdotes from her therapy patients, the author combines scientific knowledge with wisdom and insight to show how the most devastating events can initiate a fruitful search for meaning; how wrestling with the demons of pain, strife, and illness can lead us to discover our wholeness; and how meditation, prayer, and heightened awareness can serve as shining beacons during the proverbial "dark night of the soul." These are the times when the soul is on fire, fueled by torment and despair. Yet this same soul burns with an inner flame that can consume old beliefs and negative opinions, allowing a new soul to be born. Thus our darkest moments can lead to spiritual resurrection, bringing us closer to our true hearts ... and to the heart of healing. Getting there, however, is never easy. "Dark nights of the soul" are perilous emotional voyages through stormy seas of suffering. Here the terrain is shadowy and home seems far, far away; here, most of us need a light to navigate by. "Fire in the Soul" is that light, an inspiring and knowing guide to spiritual safe haven in times of loss and pain. Its insight will help you shed self-blame, heal childhood wounds, and gain strength from adversity so that you can find the goodness that is everywhere and feel the love that lights our universe. This book also features a practical resource section listing books, tapes, and addresses of helpful individuals and organizations. One of its most comforting chapters contains stories, poems, and quotations to help restore and revitalize spiritual optimism. And that is the first step to leading a life filled with faith, love, and courage

10 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inner Peace For Busy People addresses issues of people in the 21st century who feel "crazy busy." Why have we allowed busyness to become a badge of honor and a jaw-clenching, mind-bending competition? Slaves to phones, beepers, e-mails, faxes, piles of snail mail, to-do lists, congested traffic, and pushy telemarketers who call during dinner, many people are also trying to balance the demands of family and career. As a result, they often feel squeezed out of their own lives, and unable to extend the kindness and care to their loved ones that they would really like to. The paradox of this centu
Inner peace for busy women : balancing work, family, and your inner life by Joan Borysenko( Book )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a book about getting real. It tells the truth about busyness and peace in a way that can help us women change our lives. Until quite recently, it was politically incorrect to mention that balancing work and family, while having any time left to nurture our spirit, was a tall order. Only now, when a second generation of women is entering the ranks of the family-work-spirituality jugglers, do we feel secure enough to stop for a minute and say,?Wow, this is a hard act to pull off.? Sometimes we're tired, stressed out, and in danger of shutting down and losing our hearts. But if we share the truth of our lives, we can find a better way. Inner Peace for Busy Women will show you how to stop resisting your life and start living in the center of the cyclone, where it's always peaceful. Among other things, in this book you'll learn how to say no without feeling guilty, make peace with the past, be peaceful even in circumstances where happiness is not an option, follow your inner guidance, and be a beautiful mother, sister, aunt, daughter, lover, spouse, and friend - all by being your best, authentic self

It's not the end of the world : developing resilience in times of change by Joan Borysenko( Book )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The world is in crisis ... but we don?t have to be. We all know resilient people who bounce back from hardship and create their best lives. That?s the promise of change. Other people stress out and melt down, losing hope and health. That?s the danger in times of change. The good news is that resilience isn?t a genetic gift for the lucky few?it?s an easily understood skill that anyone can practice and master. Resilient individuals face reality head-on, take action, find deeper meaning in life, laugh often, and are masters of improvisation. A new kind of natural selection is already having its way with us. As change and uncertainty escalate, those who are prone to stress will be less able to compete, but hopeful, stress-hardy people will rule the world.
