"And what is as important as knowledge?” asked the mind. “Caring & seeing with the heart”, said the soul.
My Life My Canvas
Each person’s life journey is unique—a true work of art. But our individual biography and its meaning remains a mystery to most of us. This book explores the human adventure of moving from infant to elder. Just as physical growth follows well understood cycles and phases, each life path, regardless of fame or success, is guided by characteristic laws and stages as well. Tools and strategies for exploring your own biography are provided to help you see your life in a clearer way.

‘Who are you?’ explores what it means to be human; a physical body, emotional soul and thinking mind. “Where have you been?’ traces your life biography in seven-year phases, looking at the qualities and challenges that arose at each stage. The final section, ‘What are you doing?’ examines health, illness and life balance, providing a comprehensive blueprint of practical strategies for ‘whole health living’. When each aspect of yourself is recognized and acknowledged, your life-path and its challenges take on new meaning.

As you examine the outer obstacles and inner growth they produced you will better understand your unique patterns, as well as those commonly experienced by all of society. By consciously working through our own life story, we gain an appreciation for the courage and creativity we used to navigate our life. As we understand ourselves more deeply, we have a new understanding of others and society; a more humane and caring world is born.

Designed for individuals and families looking ahead to similar transitions, the book speaks in plain, direct and positive terms about taking charge and approaching death with purpose and dignity.

Healing Presence
At the center of professional nursing lies the “authentic presence” of the nurse -- the intention and commitment that brings us to the profession, and unfolds as we develop as nurses. In this new edition, JoEllen Koerner explores the intersection of scientific, creative, and spiritual ways of knowing that inform and inspire this "healing presence" in caregiver and patient.

Revised, updated, and refocused, the book integrates traditional nursing practice with cutting-edge alternative and integrative medicine. The author expands our' awareness of Allopathic and alternative ways of healing as rooted in Native Healing practices. The book also explores new models for transpersonal caring through the lens of philosophy, spirituality, and complexity science. It is a profoundly important resource for nurse educators, students, and practitioners.
