Author Lawrence J. Lincoln, MD, draws on his experience leading workshops with Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross and his expertise as a clinician to share how to live a fulfilling life by healing from unresolved issues of the past in his new part memoir, part self-help book, “Reclaiming Banished Voices: Stories on the Road to Compassion” (published by Balboa Press).

The book includes Lincoln’s experiences along with those of many workshop participants and medical patients over the past 30 years. The overall theme of the book is that reconciliation begins by finding compassion for the banished and competing voices inside oneself. Lincoln believes that if one is unable to acknowledge and accept the injured parts of oneself, the untended voices of one’s past will intrude on one’s daily lives as inappropriate anger, debilitating fear, cynicism and despair. He says it is only through insight and compassion for the injured and neglected parts of oneself can one truly be accountable for one’s words and actions.

“Perhaps more than ever, our world could benefit from the committed inquiry that begins with self-exploration, rather than blow for blow advocacy that leaves us with separating and fear-based beliefs,” Lincoln suggests. “Rather than describing a desired end-point, I have tried to use multiple examples to illustrate a process for change, encouraging the readers to discover their own true voices and come to their own conclusions.”
