Like a Phoenix from the Ashes
From the Netherlands comes this remarkable book, primarily directed to teachers, but for everyone, that addresses the modern phenomenon of burnout. It describes the symptoms and prescribes exercises to build up life forces to recover from burnout. Better yet, the exercises help to prevent burnout in the first place! With years of experience and wisdom behind her, author Annejet Rümke, leads us through effective practices for mental, spiritual and physical health in matters of the heart and of day-to-day work. The book is one of a kind and invaluable because of this. In the giving professions like teaching, counseling, care taking, and healing, the danger is to give so much of ourselves that we do not notice when we need our own replenishing. To build strength in reciprocation and compassion is the goal, and here, at last are ideas for this building. For those caring professionals this book is a must read. You will not regret it!
