In this inspiring memoir, Dr. Chris Hibbard, a psychotherapist specializing in emotional trauma, tells us stories of healing and transformation from her years traveling to many of the most troubled parts of the world, determined to help survivors of war. She has worked with refugees and survivors in Kosovo, the Middle East and Uganda, helping to heal the wounds left by war, genocide and illness. She shares the most memorable stories of her own compelling insights on healing learned in her personal life, and meeting with healers in New Zealand, Hawaii, Syria, and Brazil. In most of these places she responded to a calling to facilitate recovery and wholeness in herself and others. But along the way, it was the others who taught Chris lessons about the true nature of healing, the bravery it takes to forgive one's enemies, and the transformational power of the human spirit.
