Illness affects us all; we are called on to support and care for loved ones who face health challenges, and in turn, we encounter our own physical and emotional frailties when our health declines. Body & Soul features inspiring and award-winning fiction, essays, memoirs, poetry, photography, and visual art on the universal themes of wellness, treatment, and healing.

Told from the points of view of patients, practitioners, caregivers, families, and friends, Body & Soul provides a powerful literary perspective on how we are challenged, bewildered, changed, and uplifted by our encounters with change, illness, and disease. Readers will appreciate the richness, depth, and diversity of these healing stories and will become motivated to generate and share their own transformative narratives.

Together with the online discussion guide (providing questions relating to selected pieces in the anthology), Body & Soul is an ideal text for courses and support groups as well as individual reflection. Students and practitioners from all clinical disciplines and scholars in the humanities and social sciences will find this text invaluable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Into The Daylight Cal Morrisseau uses his own healing journey as an example of the healing that is needed and possible in Canada's Aboriginal communities. Reconnecting to traditional ways, involving self, family and our communities are part of the healing process. This is a fine contribution to Aboriginal wellness and healing. The power of Cal's words resonate throughout Canada giving both hope and strength to Aboriginal peoples.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Into the Daylight- Author: Calvin Morrisseau After reading Mr.Morriseau's book I would like say I found this book to be very powerful and learned from him that life is a wonderful journey when healing takes place. For many of our people who chose healing have this type of book to use as a tool for healing. I would recommend this book to anyone who was raised in a dysfunctional family. Thank-you Mr. Morrisseau
