Item description for The Wounding and Healing of Desire: Weaving Heaven and Earth by Wendy Farley...

Overview
Wendy Farley (WJK author of 'Tragic Vision and Divine Compassion: A Contemporary Theodicy' 1990 has written a unique manuscript that considers human life from the perspectives of the wounding and healing of desire. "Desire" as that which longs for connection, home, beauty. We yearn for these things but in so doing attach ourselves to things unworthy of our longing. We are in "bondage" to those things that ultimately prevent humans from flourishing or fulfilling their desires. Contemplation, prayer, and love are ways one can be freed from bondage and find the fulfillment of our desires in God. We are then opened up to the world and drawn into struggles for justice and well being for all people. This is a passionate, moving account that draws strongly on Christian meditative and mystical spiritual traditions--sources that are not often tapped in traditional Christian theology.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Wounding and Healing of Desire: Weaving Heaven and Earth?

Redemption of Desire   Oct 3, 2006
Compellingly written, book offers precious and incisive wisdom about the transformative experiences that accompany our discovery of the nature of the enduring desires that bring us into greater intimacy with our souls, selves, lives, those of others, and perhaps even the loving divine that made us thus. Offering insights from experiences all too famiiar to those willing to face the most vulnerable truths about our human existence -- Farley offers a description of reality that is neither easily dismissed or embraced. Human nature is neither despised, nor demonized; neither romanticized nor justified. But for those aching for the grace of a kairos moment, reading the wisdom (her sources spanning the spectrum from Julian of Norwich to Apalachian folk music to the mothers' of tortured children in South America, to the irritating donkey in Shrek) offered in this latest of WF's works will be akin to finding an oasis. There is something profoundly empowering, even vindicating, about learning that the very vulnerabilities that can destin us to struggle and suffer (even so unbearably) in body, mind, and soul, nevertheless also mediate for us such incredible blessedess -- known best through struggling to contemplate Holy Love. It is not possible to lay down her work without having grown tremendously aware of the beauty of being human -- and perhaps not a little weepy with gratitude.
