Recovering the Self, new issue focuses on animals and healing

The fall issue of the quarterly journal Recovering the Self is now published with focus on animals and healing.

Recovering The Self is a quarterly journal which explores the themes of recovery and healing through the lenses of poetry, memoir, opinion, essays, fiction, humor, art, media reviews and psychoeducation. Published by Loving Healing Press Contributors to RTS Journal come from US, Canada, UK, Macedonia, and further abroad.

The theme of Volume IV, Number 4 (November 2012) is “Animals and Healing” and is especially privileged to have three contributions from the world-renowned doctor, self-help guru, and healing guru Bernie Siegel in this issue. Bernie, as he likes to be called, has had a special relationship with animals his whole life and his story about animal communication is a rare insight into that.

Inside, the journal explores physical, spiritual, and mental aspects human/animal interaction and several other areas of concern, including:

Equine Assisted Therapies
Animal Totems
Encounters with wild animals
Pets rescuing owners
Benefits of animal companions for chronic illness
Wisdom of nature
Animal communication
Stories of cats, dogs, rabbits, goats… and much more!

The feature story in the issue by Trisha Faye describes how a woman affected by multiple sclerosis sets out on a healing journey by starting a farm and raising goats and it becomes a family of enviable respect and belongingness. A very special entry in the issue comes from a 10-year-old child Soleil Sky Cosko whose tribute to her two awesome dogs, Titan and Kashmir, stands as a testimony against the breedism that has been made a law—labeling pit bulls as dangerous dogs and hence punishable by death upon the slightest accident; sometimes even an accusation considered proof enough to sentence the dogs to death.

This issue’s contributors include:
David J. Roberts, Eva Schlesinger, Sam Vaknin, Nora Trujillo, Candace Czernicki, Kimberly J. Brown,Valerie Benko, Bernie Siegel, Bonnie Spence, Soleil Sky Cosko, Trisha Faye Pamela J. Lee, Craig Kyzar, Telaina Eriksen, Natalie Jeanne Champagne, Ghenrietta Gordon, Ernest Dempsey, Joan Haywood Heleine, Sweta Srivastava Vikram, Patricia Wellingham-Jones and others.

The Journal is now available in print and eBook versions on Amazon and Barnes & Noble Stores.
