Internationally-acclaimed author, therapist and journey leader, Edward Tick, PhD, LMHC, brings ancient healing wisdoms alive in his forthcoming book, Soul Medicine: Healing through Dream Incubation, Visions, Oracles and Pilgrimages (Healing Arts Press | Inner Traditions, 2023). Soul Medicine depicts histories and case studies of healings achieved & lives transformed using practices from the classical ancient world in psychotherapy, mentorship, and in the nearly 50 pilgrimages to Greece and Viet Nam Tick has led from 1995-2022. This book demystifies ancient healing wisdom in order to help restore soul and spirit to psychology, medicine, and transformative healing practices today.
Seeking the most powerful healing practices to address the invisible wounds of war, Dr. Ed Tick has led journeys to Vietnam for veterans, survivors, activists, and pilgrims for the past twenty years. This moving and revelatory collection documents the people, places, and experiences on these journeys. It illuminates the soul-searching and healing that occurs when Vietnamese women and children and veterans of every faction of the "American War" gather together to share storytelling and ritual, grieving, reconciliation, and atonement.
