Easy to use in a variety of ways, Caren Goldman’s acclaimed book HEALING WORDS FOR THE BODY, MIND AND SPIRIT: 101 WORDS TO INSPIRE AND AFFIRM is complementary holistic “medicine" that has a history of proven efficacy for people of all faiths or none whatsoever on their journeys to physical, emotional and spiritual healing.
In 2011, her book RESTORING LIFE'S MISSING PIECES: THE SPIRITUAL POWER OF REUNITING WITH PEOPLE, PLACES, THINGS AND SELF (Skylight Paths Publishing), was honored as a "Best Spiritual Book” of that year. Most recently, her newest book for Prevention magazine –– THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO BREAST CANCER (Rodale Press) –– was named an “excellent choice” by Library Journal.
For over 35 years, hundreds of Caren's articles exploring holistic paths to spiritual, psychological and physical healing have appeared in national publications as well as regional magazines and major metropolitan daily newspapers. In his praise for RESTORING LIFE'S MISSING PIECES, Thomas Moore, bestselling author of Care of the Soul, wrote: "I've been reading Caren Goldman for many years and consider her one of the very best writers in the spiritual area."
HEALING WORDS was written in 2000 after Caren was diagnosed with and treated for breast cancer. Since its publication, she has donated all her royalties to cancer causes. Additionally, she is also the Jewish co-author of FINDING JESUS, DISCOVERING SELF and ACROSS THE THRESHOLD INTO THE QUESTIONS (Morehouse Publishing) –two acclaimed, experiential books on Jesus of Nazareth.
Caren is a co-founder of the St. Augustine Initiative for Compassion which led a successful campaign for the nation’s oldest city to become the first Compassionate City in Florida and the 20th in the world. She is also a content expert for PlaidforWomen.com, and a Bridgebuilder conflict resolution consultant to congregations of all denominations and non-profit organizations.
