To be diagnosed with dementia is “like being blindfolded and let loose in a maze”. There is no clear treatment to follow, because each case is unique. But once thickets of misunderstanding and misinformation are brushed aside, there are pathways to hope. “Secular models of support don’t adequately reflect Christian values of compassion, love and service,” explains Louise Morse. “Neither do they describe the power of spiritual support. This is key to the wellbeing of the caregiver, as well as the person with dementia.” This book is packed with examples of what works, as well as practical advice and accessible medical information. Louise Morse is a cognitive behavioural therapist and works with a national charity whose clients include people with dementia. Her MA dissertation, based on hundreds of interviews, examined the effects on families of caring for a loved one with dementia.

Life can become complicated at times, necessitating a diversion from our difficulties. Jean Bakula found hers when she mastered the reading of Tarot cards. The Rider-Waite Tarot is fascinating because there is a card which illustrates each kind of circumstance found during life. The Major Arcana cards represent serious issues: family relationships, education, religion, love, strength, fear, addictions, sex, death, balance, health, personal growth, and redemption. The Minor Arcana cards depict everyday dealings: home life, work, money, hobbies, comfort issues, and the people we frequently encounter. Pathways Through Spirituality describes what Jean Bakula sees in the cards and paints vivid word pictures. The poetry for each card can be used to learn to read the Tarot, but each piece stands on its own as well. These pieces can assist readers in meditation on confusing experiences and decisions they face. Some believe the Tarot is only a fortune telling device, but it urges introspection and promotes honest reflections on our actions. This book can help readers view their problems and strengths more clearly, and help them uncover their deeper motivations and potentials. The answers to your questions are already there. All you need to do is trust your own intuition!
