Healing the Sacred Divide
Making Peace with Ourselves, Each Other, and the World
Purchase Price: $18.95
Healing the Sacred Divide is timely, as we become increasingly polarized around divisive issues of faith and politics. Raffa helps us work creatively with strife and divisions in ourselves, our relationships, and our world by first associating common dysfunctions with several popular ways of thinking about God. Then she shows us how to enter the “divide,” where polarized views and forces meet and mingle, as a sacred place of innovation and potential common ground.

“This fascinating book . . . both challenges and empowers us.”
— John Dominic Crossan, author, The Power of Parable
“A compelling journey through the human psyche and soul, both deeply personal and universal. Jean has done a brilliant job of illuminating where we are, how we got here, and how we can transcend the polarization and loneliness of this time by reconnecting with the sacred in its fullest, richest expression.”
— Margaret J. Wheatley, author of “Leadership and the New Science” and others
“In a world where reversing the trend towards polarization in politics, religion, and the genders is rapidly becoming crucial to our survival, Raffa offers a refreshing middle way to healing. This path merges self with other, male with female, thinking with feeling, and belief with experience in a way that can be traveled by anyone. From a perspective formed by Jungian psychology and personal experiences with organized religion, Raffa clarifies the core issues and suggests solutions in a unique and refreshing style.”
— Margaret Paul, Ph.D., co-author of “Healing Your Aloneness” and co-creator of Inner Bonding
“Jean Raffa’s book hands over the holy key to the mandorla. This space between the opposite circles, she reveals can lead us ever closer to the life force that heals the sacred divide and away from the levels of consciousness that keep us in the struggle of choosing sides. Jeanie is showing me the way to move closer to where God‘s energy and mine are the same. Since reading this book I am paying attention now more than ever. Thank you Jeanie.”
— Ann Kennedy, MA, LMHC, Founder of Winter Park Jung Center
