On this special bonus episode of Turning to the Mystics, we are celebrating the launch of Jim’s new memoir, The Healing Path. In this episode, Jim reads the complete introduction to the book and has a conversation with Kirsten about the book and how it came to be.

The Healing Path: A Memoir and Invitation is a contemplative reflection on the spirituality of healing, the fruit of the author’s lifetime in conducting spiritual direction and psychotherapy, drawing on his lessons from Thomas Merton and study of the mystical path. It is largely written in the form of a memoir of his own recovery from the traumatic wounds of his early life (abusive father, abuse by his confessor in the monastery, a dysfunctional marriage, and his road to healing and wholeness.) But it is not just about his story–it is an invitation to the reader to reflect and resonate with the lessons that apply to their own stories.

The Healing Path is available at the CAC bookstore and everywhere books are sold. Learn more at
