'Bob Woodward, a respected member of the National Federation of Spiritual Healers, and a senior co-worker at the Sheiling School, a Camphill Centre, draws on the practice both as a healer and curative educator in order to share key concepts of both areas of experience with the reader. Examples of individual healing sessions with children with a variety of special needs demonstrate the part that spiritual healing can play in calming emotional disturbance, and helping to restore harmony to body, soul and spirit: a marked improvement in the ability to relate to both peers and adults was noticed by carers and teacher.'
- The Christian Parapsychologist
Spiritual Healing with Children with Special Needs gives a fascinating account of individual healing sessions with children with complex special needs and moderate to severe learning difficulties. Drawing on his experience as a qualified spiritual healer and senior co-worker at The Sheiling School, a Camphill Centre, Bob Woodward shows how spiritual healing can help children with special needs to achieve peace and relaxation.
From his perspective as both spiritual healer and curative educator, the author introduces the key concepts of both subject areas to the reader and explains how the two disciplines can be combined and applied, providing case examples of healing sessions with children with a range of special needs, including autism, epilepsy and emotional and behavioural difficulties. The author demonstrates the benefits of spiritual healing for these children as a natural, non-invasive, holistic approach that restores balance and harmony to body, soul and spirit.
This unique book will be of interest to parents and professionals involved with special needs children, as well as practitioners of and those interested in spiritual healing.
