Revolution of the Spirit is a vibrant call to action for all spiritual seekers searching for a guide to create sacred space in their lives and a priceless resource for practitioners who want to dive into the mystic and find evidence based solutions. Based in her own healing adventure with severe clinical depression and years of experience as a holistic medical practitioner, Gerri Ravyn Stanfield has created a breakthrough handbook that gracefully leads readers away from what makes us sick and towards nine ingredients to a more sacred life. While exposing the history behind the divorce between spirituality and wellness in both the Eastern and Western world, Stanfield explores nine ingredients to a spiritual medicine. Her Sacred Exploration exercises, Spiritual Inventory opportunities and Revolutionary Healer Dares offer a personalized challenge to release stagnant patterns and embrace these nine practices as medicinal, timeless and relevant. Revolution of the Spirit features interviews with authors, teachers, activists and practitioners to stimulate a timely conversation about the expansion of our collective health to include body, mind and spirit. Revolution of the Spirit is a peaceful takeover of the contemporary health care system on behalf of the sacred to instigate readers toward a bold vision of wholeness. It offers a dare to people in all stages of their healing journey to leave learned hopelessness behind and become spirited changers of our modern lives.

Combining Eastern and Western trauma physiology, clinician-educators Alaine Duncan and Kathy Kain introduce a new map for acupuncturists, medical practitioners, mental health providers, and body-oriented clinicians to help restore balance in their patients. Using concepts from Acupuncture and Asian Medicine (AAM), alongside descriptions of the threat response from Western bio-behavioral science, they describe common physical symptoms, emotional presentations, and paths for healing for five survivor “types” detailed by the authors and correlated to the Five Elements of AAM. This ancient/modern integrative lens illuminates the diverse manifestations of traumatic stress in its survivors–chronic pain, autoimmune illness, insomnia, metabolic problems, and mental health disorders–and brings new hope to survivors of trauma and those who treat them.

One moment, life was sunny and carefree. The next, it was stormy and chaotic. That’s how it felt to twenty-year-old Susannah as she stood on the front porch of her childhood home and witnessed a tree fall on her father during a fast-moving thunderstorm. As she grieved his passing, post-traumatic stress disorder quickly set in and took over all aspects of her life. The plans she had made for her future after college changed. Peace with Trees is her story of how she learned to live peacefully with PTSD while discovering a new purpose and career path as an acupuncturist is sure to inspire anyone who has ever experienced unimaginable trauma.

Vision, feeling, curiosity, these are the motivating qualities. I feel the sociopolitical and humanistic urge to add my voice to the deafening chorus, to make the world a healthier place with more gratitude for beauty and growth. – Verena Smith
