How Can I Let Go if I Don't Know I'm Holding On?: Setting Our Souls Free

Linda Douty, Author . Morehouse $13.95 (180p) ISBN 978-0-8192-2132-2

What kinds of things are we holding on to that prevent us from enjoying a deeper relationship with God? In this wise book, Douty, a spiritual director and United Methodist, calls readers to identify the hurts and resentments that might be affecting their relationships with God and others. Such hurts may be as simple as grieving the loss of a friendship that has run its course, or as profound as the betrayal of a spouse or partner. "A loving God leads us toward letting go as a natural process of the abundant life," Douty counsels. To help readers move on, she outlines some practical techniques such as breathwork, labyrinth walking, "dancing prayer," keeping a gratitude journal and creating something every day in the kitchen or garden. Though this will probably be most helpful to mainline and liturgical Christians, individuals of other denominations will find much that is useful on the road to healing. (Sept.)
