In this touching and supportive book, a redefinition of traditional perceptions of pain is interwoven with the experiences of world-renowned visionaries, healers, artists, and peacemakers whose intensely personal moments of darkness led to spiritual growth. Nobel Peace Prize winner Rigoberta Menchu Tum discusses her trauma in being exiled from Guatemala; Goldie Hawn explains the panic attacks she went through early in her career; Iyanla Vanzant discusses her creative process when writing; and Deepak Chopra shares his moments of intense disconnection throughout his life.
