Edited by Ryan D. Foster and Janice Miner Holden
This edited volume presents spiritual and religious perspectives and practices that can be integrated into counseling, written by experts in the field. Included are topics such as transpersonal experiences, prayer, meditation, and non-traditional spiritual approaches.
Connecting Soul, Spirit, Mind, and Body is like M & M candies. On the surface it appears one way - a simple and concise introduction to a wide range of spiritual practices. However, in the interior of the book are rich, well-edited chapters full of facts, stories, and a host of observations that are intriguing, interesting, and deep. Connecting links us to the ultimate and meaningful in a way that is enjoyable, scholarly, and unmatched by other works on religion and spiritual perspectives and practices.
