Tell It By Heart
Women and the Healing Power of Story
Erica Helm Meade
"Erica Helm Meade shows us how our life is filled with stories and mythic figures who provoke growth and reveal inner hidden truths . . . an excellent resource guide to illustrate how story-telling can be used in personal, professional, and therapeutic contexts."
—Angeles Arrien, Ph.D., author of The Four-Fold Way and Signs of Life
"A remarkable book and an important one. Erica Helm Meade trusts story. With wisdom, caring, and great personal strength, she holds up one well-chosen tale at a time, and encourages individuals to look through into their own troubled interiors. Much more than the sum of its parts, and the case studies and insights on using story-as-therapy meld into a beautiful reading experience. This is a hopeful collection of minor miracles which should be read by educators, healers, storytellers, and all who minister to other healing humans."
—Margaret Read MacDonald, author of The Storyteller's Sourcebook
