For people who are in daily contact with those who are ill or in need, it can become easy to forget the bigger picture and purpose of healing, and focus just on the day-to-day mechanics. Anthroposophical medicine encompasses not only the body but also the soul and the individual biography, bringing a broader dimension to modern medicine. Peter Selg shows how anthroposophical therapies draw heavily on the Christian concept of healing as seen in the New Testament. Practically, he suggests that healers and carers can, through meditation, allow the healing power of Christ to work. They must also recognise that sickness can be part of a person's destiny, and that the healing can help realise the purpose of the sickness for the person's individual biography. Nurses, carers, social workers, therapists, counsellors and doctors will benefit from this insightful book. Peter Selg was born in Stuttgart in 1953. He studied medicine in Zurich and Berlin. Until 2000 he worked as the head physician of the child and juvenile psychiatry department of Herdecke hospital in Germany. He now works as a youth psychiatrist at the Ita Wegman Clinic in Arlesheim, Switzerland, lectures extensively and is the author of numerous books. He is married with three children.
'The book is rich in quotes and has some beautiful illustrations. It offers a fascinating insight into the inspirations of Steiner's anthroposophical medicine. For those interested in the Christian gospels, Paracelsus' writings, the Rosicrucians and the development of anthroposophical medicine, this is a worthwhile read.'-- Yvonneke Roe, Scientific and Medical Network Review, Summer 2006'This book is a plea for those concerned with healing to remember the wish of Dr Steiner that it should be permeated with Christianity. Selg's book contains a vast amount of information with excellent illustrations, notes and references. It is deeply though-provoking and should stimulate further study in the field of healing.'-- Peter Heathfield, New View, Spring 2005'Provides plenty of material to make people think.'-- In Beweging: Journal of the Christian Community (Netherlands), Advent 2004
