Noted professor and practicing psychiatrist explores the link between suffering, creativity, and spirituality! This is an intriguing combination of psychiatry and spirituality that illustrates the power of creativity to treat suffering. An examination of the lives of famous artists who suffered, including Van Gogh, Tchaikovsky, and Beethoven gives insight into how they dealt with their adversity through creativity. Explore how various conditions such as alcoholism, depression, bipolar disorder, and dementia can influence a person's creative impulse and how creativity and spirituality can help a person deal with trauma. Read how Helen Keller, Christopher Reeve, and others were able to overcome suffering and emerge victorious. Drawing on principles found in the teachings of the Bah' Faith, Ghadirian attempts to explain suffering, its place in human society, and how it can lead us to a closer, happier relationship with God, as well as a better relationship with ourselves and others.
