Tick's proposal is that until the soul is allowed to grieve properly and to tell its story, until it is allowed to perform the rituals needed for completion of the killing, it will continue to suffer. Essential to that process is the act of storytelling, of confessing and laying to rest the deeds of the past. His proposal is one that is both practical and of universal use. His research into warrior culture across time and place speaks of the need for such practices. War may never end, but a warrior's grief and guilt may, in time, be assuaged so that he or she, at last, may return home.
Ed Tick is a therapist who talks about War in the language of the soul, and the soul is how veterans understand their own experiences. Having worked with vets since Vietnam and being frustrated with conventional therapies that haven't worked, Ed Tick turned to indigenous and classical cultures to find effective ways to work with returning warriors. What he has come up with is extraordinary--full of heart and soul.
While requisite reading for therapists and anyone with a vet in their lives, it's an important book for everyone else. If we become individuals and communities that can truly support and heal our returning soldiers, we will also become a society that knows how to properly initiate our adolescents into adults, how to treat ourselves and others, and how to shoulder or transform the burdens that we carry in our everyday lives.
Ed Tick truly understands the distress of an emotionally wounded solder. Don't let the word "Soul" discourage or frighten away a prospective reader from purchasing this audio book. He is not talking about theology here. The author is referring to that part of each of us we claim as our identity.
Recovery is a process of gaining control over our lives. This audio book truly helped me along on the unending journey of emotional healing. My sincere wish is that listening to Ed Tick's words will bring healing to you too.

Empfehlenswert zum Thema wären an dieser Stelle sicher auch Bücher von Dr.Roger Woolger-beispielsweise " Other Lives-Other Selves". Dieses Buch gibt es auch in deutscher Sprache.
