Transforming Suffering

SERIES OVERVIEW

Transforming Suffering While Caring for Others

Emotional and spiritual pain impacts our health and well-being as much as physical illness.  Growing research from the health care sciences points to measurable benefits when the underlying causes of suffering are diagnosed and responded to.  This series offers lessons and simple practices for choosing healing attitudes in the face of illness and suffering. Total person wellness always includes a sense of meaning, hope, healthy relationships and the capacity for forgiveness.  These same qualities are the antidotes to emotional suffering and spiritual pain.  Here are some important ways that caregivers and those we care for can become medicine for each other.

Lesson One: SUFFERING
Ways that healing is always possible even when curing is not

Lesson Two: MEANING
Exploring the relationship between clear meaning and wellness

Lesson Three: FORGIVENESS
The power of letting go is essential for well-being and recovery

Lesson Four: RELATEDNESS
Learning how to relate to sickness and suffering in new ways

Lesson Five: HOPE
Asking courageous questions in the face of life’s greatest challenges
