Description
This is a book about moments that change our lives. Some are everyday occurrences, and others are hard to explain -- a voice, a vision, a crisis endured. In this profound book, professor and psychotherapist Richard Heckler follows a lifelong hunch that there is a pattern to the way in which people grow and change as they encounter the Unexpected. So he traveled across the country and interviewed dozens of people whose lives have been altered by these events. In the course of this book, Heckler tells moving and life-affirming stories as he charts the stages of personal change that culminate in the decision to change one's life, or what he calls the life-transforming Leap.<P>The slumber of daily life is interrupted by a Call. It can be as dramatic as Rebecca's experience of surviving a terrible storm at sea or something as recognizable as Jordan's sensing the presence of his beloved dead wife in a country church. Crossings charts the psychological stages of development that take us from slumber to a new life. Reading about how people get this new perspective and reconnect with their innate gifts, turn away from meaningless work, or hearken to their inner voices of decency and service, gives courage to those of us who may feel trapped in our everyday lives.<P>Change comes in many forms and from many sources. We are lucky enough to live in a time when scientists, psychologists, and physicians are recognizing the importance of a widening range of experiences -- ones they would have scoffed at a decade ago, like the mind-body connection. In Crossings, we begin to see a new connection between ourselves and events we too may have scoffed at simply because they seemed so striking and so hard toexplain.
