Dr. John Edwin DeVore uncovers lessons to transcend trauma in new book

Writing this book was therapeutic and helped me learn that to transcend mental and emotional trauma requires that one sit in silence and solitude with personal wars.

As Americans sound off about the critically acclaimed movie "American Sniper," a dialogue about the hard truths concerning wars and those who fight in them is surfacing across the country.

In his autobiography, "Sitting in the Flames: Uncovering Fearlessness to Help Others," Dr. John Edwin DeVore describes his experience while serving in the Vietnam War, as well as his search for inner calmness after the war ended.

“Writing this book was therapeutic and helped me learn that to transcend mental and emotional trauma requires that one sit in silence and solitude with personal wars,” Dr. DeVore said.

By detailing his path of escape from emotional suffering, Dr. DeVore hopes to be an inspiration for others to take one step at a time and uncover peace of mind, purpose, and connections created on a foundation of compassion.

“This work can stir compassion in family members of combat veterans and inspire them to reconnect with loved ones who may have chosen not to sit in the flames of their combat experiences and personal Vietnam wars,” Dr. DeVore said.
