The Book of Courage
Meditations to Empowerment and Peace of Mind
By Sue Patton Thoele
A little book with a big message - we can take charge of our lives, stop trying to please all of the (other) people all of the time, and live happily with ourselves and others right now.
Psychotherapist Sue Patton Thoele is on a mission to help each and every woman uncover her own authentic self and tap into her own wellspring of wisdom and inner-strength. Thoele offers practical tools and gentle guidance to aid in setting boundaries, changing self-defeating behaviours, and increasing passion for themselves and others.
In more than a hundred short entries, Thoele offers meditations, affirmations, and true stories, including deeply personal, often humorous, revelatory stories of her own rocky path of personal growth. The reflections are presented in twelve chapters that can be tapped into randomly or used as a monthly meditation guide. Among the "A Woman Has the Courage to..." chapters are: Create Peace of Mind; Tame and Transform Her Dragons; Make Her Own Choices; Develop Healthy Relationships; Take Risks and Change; and Recognise Rainbows.
Sue Patton Thoele is a retired psychotherapist and hospice chaplain. She is the author of twelve books and still enjoys writing an email "MuseLetter" whenever the mood strikes her. Her interests include watercolour painting and facilitating women's groups. She and her husband, Gene, live in Colorado near their grown children and grandsons.
