The Sacred Body is the memoir of a psychotherapist working in the field of supportive cancer care. The memoir details her journey through this challenging process. As she struggles with the issues triggered by her work, she confronts her own medical fears of death and dying and the meaning of her own life. Weaving both personal and professional vignettes, the reader follows the therapist's own development and changes which also mirrors the healing journey of those diagnosed with cancer. With sensitivity and understanding, The Sacred Body explores such topics as the body and body image, death and dying, the genetics of cancer, family issues, alternative medicine, the meaning of suffering and spirituality. While there have been many narratives and personal testimonies written by cancer patients, to date there has been no memoir written from the perspective of a professional in the field. The Sacred Body is also about the hope that arises out of suffering, the strength that can be found in the midst of pain and the power of the human spirit to overcome the most heart-rending events.
