Editorial Reviews

Review

If we need a friend during the times that depression brings, then Vanier offers himself as one of those friends. -- Spiritual Book News

Its author has lived long and intently with what he describes so his assessments are lucid and his prescriptions credible. -- Prairie Messenger (Saskatchewan)

About the Author

After years of studying and teaching philosophy, Jean Vanier founded L'Arche, named after Noah's ark, a network of more than one hundred communities in thirty countries, inhabited by people with disabilities and their caregivers. Vanier is the son of former governor general of Canada Georges Vanier. Jean Vanier is also co-founder, with Marie-Hélène Mathieu, of Faith and Light, which brings together people with disabilities and their family and friends. There are now 1,300 Faith and Light communities in seventy-five countries.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Jean Vanier, noted spiritual author and founder of the L'Arche communities for people with learning disabilities, gently describes various aspects of the causes of, experience of, and recovery from depression.
Though neither a clinical analysis nor a first-person narrative, Seeing Beyond Depression is informed by both psychological theory and personal experience. Vanier's approach is to provide a meditative mixture of realism and hope intended to speak to the spiritual state of the depressed person.
The author's tone is that of one friend caring for another, and this slim volume would certainly make a thoughtful gift to a friend who is depressed, even if that friend is yourself.

Jean Vanier's books have recently become what Henri Nouwen's books were during the 90s. Real & life-giving! More to read.

Another beautiful book by Jean, that totally acknowledges the whole human person, gives encouragement and purpose to move forward through the darkness.
