Ed will dive into the themes of world peace and transformative healing by sharing powerful selections from his two most recent books:
Soul Medicine: Healing through Dream Incubation, Visions, Oracles and Pilgrimage
Ancient healing wisdoms come alive! Soul Medicine depicts histories and case studies of healings achieved & lives transformed using practices from the classical ancient world in psychotherapy, mentorship, and in the nearly 50 pilgrimages to Greece & Viet Nam Tick has led from 1995-2022. This book demystifies ancient healing wisdom in order to help restore soul and spirit to psychology, medicine, and transformative healing practices today.
Coming Home In Viet Nam
This moving and revelatory poetry collection documents the people, places, and experiences on these journeys. It illuminates the soul-searching and healing that occurs when Vietnamese women and children and veterans of every faction of the “American War” gather together to share storytelling and ritual, grieving, reconciliation, and atonement. These poems reveal war’s aftermath for Vietnamese and Americans alike and their return to peace, healing, and belonging in the very land torn by war’s horrors.
