Number of pages: 208
From the author of Drumming from Within and Together We Heal, Walk a New Path explores the author’s journey towards recovery from co-dependency and workaholism and the universal lessons drawn from his experience in Canada’s Far North.
For people dealing with grief, depression, addiction and trauma, moving towards clear thinking can be difficult. Lavoie lays out each of the 12 steps for healing, drawing from personal stories and the Christian Tradition to offer a roadmap to recovery. These steps help those suffering from various forms of abuse see their own experiences as opportunities for growth.
Priests, parish leaders, counsellors and parents will appreciate this book just as much as the people it directly helps.
