Additional Titles by this Author
  • “ I am delighted that Dr. Seaward’s book, Health of the Human Spirit, is now in its second edition as I have used it as a foundational text in my 4th year Health of The Human Spirit class for the last seven years. There continues to be a paradigm shift in higher education regarding the study of human spirituality and this text helps to fill a very important void. Students are hungry for curriculum that leads to deeper meaning in their life’s and adds hope to a world in turmoil. I know of no other text quite like this one on the market that provides both an interdisciplinary approach for this topic and at the same time is imminently practical with many suggestions for further practice and investigation.”

  • "I am so happy that Health of the Human Spirit is being released as a second edition! I continue to get desk copies of books that I might want to use in my class, Invitation to Holistic Health, Integrative Health Promotion....no one integrates spirit like Dr. Seaward does; simply and realistically."
