About the book
Lifting Your Spirits:
Seven Tools for Coping with Illness
Lifting Your Spirits is a unique practical guide designed to help people coping with illness or disability. Drawing on the insights of those who have experienced the challenges of serious illness, it introduces seven simple tools to develop inner strength and enhance well-being on all levels. Each tool offers practical and inspiring ways of dealing with the physical and emotional upheaval and uncertainty which illness presents. Some focus on preparing for surgery and treatment, others on coping with pain, anxiety or depression.
The guide can be used by individuals for their own sustenance, or introduced into patient support groups, treatment and therapy centres, hospices, day centres and other healthcare services.
The beautifully illustrated book and two audio CDs provide guided relaxation and meditation, short daily practices and positive thoughts which will literally ‘lift your spirits’. The pack was launched in July 2008 – see Newsletter Nov 2008. The second edition was printed in August 2009. See leaflet and order form.
