Healing and Transformation Through Self Guided Imagery is a guide to healing from trauma and crisis though the transformative potential of imagery techniques. Tapping into the heart's wisdom through guided imagery is an ancient practice, but today imagery is enjoying a renaissance in a variety of contemporary settings. Imagery is used as an adjunct to conventional medical therapies for health issues ranging from cancer and heart disease to post-traumatic stress disorder and addiction. This inspiring guide provides contemporary techniques for using it to transform moments of pain, emotional turmoil, and interpersonal conflict into opportunities for growth and self-realization. The book includes a self-facilitation worksheet with step-by-step instructions.
Leslie gives an overview of the book:
Using imagery as a self-help tool when facing a major life stressor is only the beginning of tapping into the potential of this powerful practice. Imagery is far more than self-help; it can be a way to self-realization. By regularly traveling into our heart's domain, we not only get in touch with, but become at home in, a source of wisdom greater than we know. Using imagery this way can uproot underlying beliefs that promote distress in our lives. Often, intuition naturally emerges in day-to-day awareness as we cultivate receptivity to our inner guidance. Over time, you may find that situations that previsouly would have been upsetting to you are now no longer disturbing.
