Women who read Patricia Greer’s book, Breast Cancer: A Soul Journey, asked for a workbook to help them go on their own journeys of inner exploration. This companion volume to her first book provides that help, and offers support and guidance to those who go on the journey. Conversational in tone, it contains specific questions, suggestions, and exercises that can be helpful to the seasoned journal writer or the woman who is new to the idea of inner work.
It is based on breast cancer as the central experience of a deepening search, but it can be translated by the reader into any illness, any crisis, any life challenge.
This book does not attempt to explain psychological issues or theories; instead it offers ways of accessing inner insights and finding direction for one’s life. It encourages the reader to connect with soul in ways that are playful, but deeply serious and meaningful. As with her first book, all of the author’s proceeds will be donated to a cancer center.
“Soul Play serves as validation for the power of self-reflection through journaling and contemplation and provides a gentle pathway to fully explore your soul. For anyone who has struggled with finding a deeper understanding of self and journey, consider this workbook as the gentle hands guiding you every step of the way.”
- Nancy Vance, Director, LivingWell Cancer Resource Center
“Patricia Greer gently guides breast cancer survivors through the intricate layers of this life changing experience. She provides a ‘soul map’ that can lead to a deeper understanding of the impact cancer has on who they are, honoring and acknowledging their growth and the resiliency of human spirit.”
- Valerie Piazza, Senior Oncology Support Counselor, Wellness House
“A compassionate, gentle, and creative guide that allows you to hold space for yourself and your soul as you explore the deeper meaning of your illness.”
- Lisa Ellerbeck, breast cancer survivor
