[quote=Cockney Clive]EKR. Has done much good work in the field of helping the terminally ill with their death issues. Her early books are very thoughtful and her psychologic models are sound and she can consider herself to be an important pioneer of respite care for the terminally ill.
However, last decade or so she has gotten into wacky stuff - Buddihism and then more ‘New Age’ stuff. Hasn’t she co-authored a book with Paulho Coelho lately?
Read her early stuff and you won’t be disappointed or led astray. Probably best to ignore her more recent texts.
That was what I was starting to think also. As I was reading and she was clearly talking about New Age stuff, and then shortly after writing that she used to be an Indian in a past life?!}? I thought…I was recommended to read her by a Catholic, what’s going on?
I was just checking to see what others thought. I also think she did made some wonderful contributions to this world while she was alive, but somewhere along the line I have to wonder if she might have taken a wrong turn. It just got confusing to me, because many things she wrote about seemed right on target in my mind, and even in line with Catholic teaching, but then this reincarnation, kind of New Age stuff threw me for a loop, and I didn’t know what I should be believing any more.
Thanks for your input everyone.
