By Chopra, Deepak

Harmony Books. New in New dust jacket. 2001. First Edition. Hardcover. 1400045053 . New item - has a small remainder marking to one outer edge. The opening section, “In the Face of Tragedy, ” defines suffering as the pain that threatens to make life meaningless. When our deepest needs go unfulfilled, suffering begins. We begin to heal when we go beyond personal anger and fear to a realization of our true self, the self that was never afraid and can never be wounded. The true self contains the light that no darkness can attack. Having described a path of awareness and compassion that leads to the light, the second half of The Deeper Wound takes us there through “A Hundred Days of Healing, ” daily affirmations, exercises, insights, lessons, and questions—each a step out of pain toward a higher reality. “We can become living memorials to tragedy by restoring the power of life, ” writes Deepak Chopra.
