"Recovering the Self" is full of articles written by inspiring authors about a variety of topics. Many of these topics involve people taking back their power to recover from issues such as child abuse, anorexia, depression, and cancer. These are just to name a few. There is also poetry, fictional stories, book reviews and movie reviews. I found everything printed in this journal to be of value.
I also find it inspiring to read about people who become empowered to change their lives or the lives of those around them. I like that each article has information listed about the author and a website to follow up on for more information about the topic. This allows readers to delve further into information that they would like to pursue. For myself, I now have a list of websites to refer to, and a list of reading materials to follow up on.
"Recovering the Self: A Journal of Hope and Healing (Vol. II, No.1)" is highly recommended reading. It can be read and enjoyed in one sitting, however, for people who do not have a lot of time to read, it will be perfect for them to be able to bookmark and read the articles as time permits. Enjoy.
