About the Author

Author Ken Ferber is a lover of life, art, music and all things amazing---which is slowly becoming all things---learning to enjoy the sacred in the every day. This transformation is due in large part to ongoing inner healing that is fully shared in this book, "Beyond Humpty Dumpty". The powerful truth of Henri Nouwen shines through these personal reflections: "The Walking Wounded have become the Wounded Healers." A time-tested recovery understanding shines through each page of this creative work: "Our worst days, whatever they may be, can become our best days." By the grace given us we are able to go beyond any kind of brokenness in our lives. We do not need to be put back together again the way we once were. We can take any of life's struggles and pain and shame and give them back to whatever power, divine force or God, as we understand God. That great, transforming Spirit can and will make us into brand new creations! A new creation impossible to achieve if we had not gone through life's struggles to begin with.

More About the Author

Kenneth E. Ferber (1953 - ).

Leonard Cohen sings in his song "Anthem", "There is a crack, a crack in everything...that's how the light gets in." This is the theme of my recovery life and assisting others in the same. That great recycling LIGHT shines out of our cracks, our 'brokeness'....As Henri Nouwen shared and lived so admirably: "The Walking Wounded have become the Wounded Healers."

I was born exactly 100 years before Vincent Vangogh, a great inspiration of mine in the deep Expression(ism) of art and life. Vincent was a prime example of how light can shine out in a glorious array from one who had many such 'cracks'!

I have been an artist, theologian, pastor assisting others in recovery for over three decades. I am blessed to be one of the 12 Resident Artists at the Healing Arts Center of Recovery Plus of the St. Cloud Hospital, working with clients to assist them in their recovery through healing art. And, I am most blessed, after three years in the making, over 400 blogs on recovery sites, and working with many in their recovery as walking miracles, to put in writing "Beyond Humpty Dumpty - Recovery Reflections On The Seasons Of Our Lives."
