SKU: 9781935528593 Categories: ,


In Trauma and Beyond, Ursula Wirtz courageously and brilliantly undertakes the most truculent question: “wither the soul after soul-murder”? She summarizes the literature in the field, the range of methodologies, and provides numerous illustrations and case studies which demonstrate a realistic, hopeful, sequential approach to trauma integrating fragmented splinters.
She illustrates the narrow passage between the necessity of ego-death, abiding a most difficult in-between, and attending the birth of an enlarged, more capacious ego state. Trauma and Beyond is not only a contribution to the field, but has the makings of a classic study of the resilience of the soul in the face of even the most devastating traumata.
James Hollis, Ph.D.
In an extraordinary synthesis of the diverse facets of the psyche activated in trauma, Ursula Wirtz truly offers the reader a way “beyond” suffering into wisdom. A lifetime of experience is woven into a revelatory tapestry of heart and soul. Reflecting an emerging paradigm in the 21st century, science and spirituality are brought into kindred relations through the author’s courageous explorations of trauma. Anyone touched by trauma will benefit deeply from an encounter with this book.
