A Vision of the Warriorâs Journey to Wholeness
As veterans from a new generation come back from overseas, our cultureâs lack of resources for returning warriors has become a greater problem than ever. âLifelong suffering after war is not inevitable,â says Dr. Edward Tick. âBut in our culture, we have unwittingly forced our veterans to carry the moral and social of burdens of warfare alone.â On Restoring the Warriorâs Soul, Dr. Tick offers tools for healing and guidance to help veterans cope with the life-changing effects of combat and find a new sense of peace and purpose.
Practical Wisdom for Healing the Wounds of War
What we call PTSD is just the latest name for a phenomenon warriors have dealt with since the dawn of time. Dr. Tick explores both the visible and invisible wounding of war, then draws upon both ancient and modern sources to show us a path for transformation, wholeness, and wisdom. In these six audio sessions, he outlines a road map for the returning warrior to find a new and honorable role in society, and carry forth their service into civilian life.
The warriorâs journey touches us allâfrom those who serve to their families, neighbors, caregivers, and coworkers. âIn a healthy society,â says Dr. Tick, âeach of us must understand our own role in the sacred contract between warriors and the culture they protect.â With Restoring the Warriorâs Soul, Dr. Tick provides invaluable guidance to everyone touched by war so we can create a culture that values our returning warriors with respect, dignity, and love.
