Readers with an open mind will find much to reflect on in the latest psycho-spiritual self-help guide from Ingerman (Soul Retrieval), who provides ways to "manifest positive energy and power in your life" with simple, straightforward writing touched by occasional poetic flourishes. Ingerman pulls ideas from a number of disciplines-including meditation, psychotherapy, shamanism and quantum physics-to formulate methods for combating fear and frustration, which may initially confuse readers; it's this broad reach, however, that keeps the book firmly grounded in a number of different belief systems, allowing for a flexible approach. Sprinkled with short assignments ("take at least a fifteen-minute walk a day; it will clear your head and move the oxygen in your blood") and fable-like stories, Ingerman's creative, multi-pronged plan for healing is gentle, practical and encouraging, making it a fine resource for the overstressed.
