A Spiritual Guidebook for Family Caregivers of Alzheimer's Patients and Other Difficult Challenges

by Sheila Pearl

Book Image Not Available
Overview
STILL LIFE is a “must read” for anyone seeking comfort and guidance as they face a loved-one's catastrophic illness, whether it be Dementia, Altzheimer's Disease, Diffuse Lewy-Body Disorder, the cognitive impact of stroke and other difficult challenges. STILL LIFE is spiritual guidance that supports an acceptance of what is, rather than resisting what is; it is a reminder that we are all bigger than we think we are, more than our bodies and minds; and is an intimate companion for anyone feeling alone during those dark nights of the soul. STILL LIFE is a “pearl of wisdom” that reassures you that you are not alone and that whatever the difficulty, whatever the challenge, “this is STILL LIFE” and while there is breath, life deserves your loving attention.
Description
When your worst nightmare happens, where can you turn? What can you do? What can you think or feel that could possibly make a difference and give you comfort? In STILL LIFE author Sheila Pearl shares her personal story of struggle, discovery, and transformation – for herself and her husband. Rabbi Aaron Pearl had been a brilliant orator, scholar and forward-thinking teacher. He prized his fine mind, above all. His greatest fear is what most people fear: losing his mind. Like most people who fear getting older and losing the capacity to think clearly and be self-sufficient, Sheila's husband Aaron was terrified of that outcome for himself. In STILL LIFE... Sheila shares her discovery of new levels of consciousness, of ways to use intuition and a spirit-to-spirit intuitive communication technique called “kything.” It was through kything that Sheila discovered her husband's voice when he had lost his ability to speak clearly; it was through the practice of kything that Sheila and Aaron began a series of conversations which led to their shared experience that “I'm not my body...I'm not my mind” and that “when my body dies...I don't die...I will always be with you.” As a seasoned family therapist and bereavement counselor, life coach Sheila Pearl shares spiritual wisdom for anyone facing difficult challenges: (1) embrace and accept what is and let go of wishing life is anything other than what it is; (2) you are never alone; we live in a friendly and loving universe and we are not separate from those around us – we are all one. Throughout the pages of STILL LIFE are sprinkled the poetic wisdom of thought leaders such as Deepak Chopra, Stephen Levine, Neale Donald Walsch, and Eckhart Tolle. STILL LIFE is a “must read” for anyone seeking comfort and guidance as they face a loved-one's catastrophic illness, whether it be Dementia, Altzheimer's Disease, Diffuse Lewy-Body Disorder, the cognitive impact of stroke and other difficult challenges. STILL LIFE is spiritual guidance that supports an acceptance of what is, rather than resisting what is; it is a reminder that we are all bigger than we think we are, more than our bodies and minds; and is an intimate companion for anyone feeling alone during those dark nights of the soul. STILL LIFE is a “pearl of wisdom” that reassures you that you are not alone and that whatever the difficulty, whatever the challenge, “this is STILL LIFE” and while there is breath, life deserves your loving attention.
