It’s too bad we have to go through such deep pain to let go. —Jerry, CEO, after his son’s murder
I am grateful for the new wisdom that cancer has brought to me. —Laurie, Teacher
How do some people thrive in disaster’s wake? Jim Macartney, Rehabilitation Specialist and one who journeyed himself to the edge of life and back, has searched deeply for answers to this question.
Since the 1980s, he has sought out people who have endured the most extreme of crises, yet transformed their lives as a direct result of the havoc the crises wrought.
Clear patterns of growth reveal themselves in the scores of people he interviewed and the many hundreds he counseled over the last twenty-five years. These people had somehow stumbled upon what Macartney calls the Crisis to Creation Cycle: a powerful catalyst for growth and transformation.
“Crisis to Creation provides dramatic evidence of the power of choice to heal the soul, transform tragedy into blessings, and take people from crisis into creation. One sees just how miraculously “can” triumphs over “can’t.” Whether you have suffered tragedy or not, this book will transform you.”
