Who is The Healer?
How Does Healing Happen? What Is It That Needs To Be Healed?
So often we want to be of help, but find ourselves uncertain about how to proceed, especially during a time of need. What is really needed of us then? How can we offer it?
Martin Buber tells us that what is needed most urgently during a crisis is "a Presence through which we know that nevertheless there is meaning."
A Time to Care is an updated version of a book which was written for caretakers of all kinds, as well as those in need of care. The book is based upon years of working with patients, hospital staff, ministers and chaplains. It offers a different look at how healing happens, and what is required for true connection and conversation to take place.
Combing the principles and practices of Eastern and Western psychology and philosophy, the work provides unique insights on how to be truly present for both yourself and others during a time of need.
Along with discussion of many issues, the book includes simple, creative exercises and practices which allow the reader to integrate the information and utilize it in their everyday lives.
As they do so, it becomes easy to see what is truly needed of us, and how to offer it.
SOME OF THE TOPICS EXPLORED INCLUDE:
The Nature of Real Kindness
True Giving and Receiving
The Gift of Presence
True Conversation and Connection

Brenda's work is so simple and clear. You hear what she says, you know it is the truth and then there is no more commentary. It is all unpretentious, genuine and true. Thank you, Brenda, for making us feel so comfortable."
