"From Minefield to Mind Field" Book Event with Albert Globus, M.D., June 13th at Florey's!
Florey's Books welcomes author Albert Globus, M.D. as he discusses his new book, "From Minefield to Mind Field: Loving and Becoming Yourself".
***Saturday, June 13th, 2-4pm***
About the Book:
What an adventure: changing one’s life. My poems highlight the desire to be self-sufficient, autonomous, decisive, and creative. My essays enhance understanding. “This is what happened when I did it. You can too.” Often confusing, more often fun. Therapy is hope for the overwhelmed. We direct our lives by exercising the mind’s eye. Section I pits our experience against what confronts us. Section II focuses on spirit and determination. We decide who we are by self-knowledge. Section III outlines the impact of those who are closest to us on our well-being and future capacity to respond to our misfortunes and opportunities.
About the Author:
When Al Globus was six, his father succumbed to tuberculosis. To avoid contagion, Al was kept away from his father. His father’s religion and family were a secret. Living alone, his mother worked to exhaustion and irritability. Al entered college at fifteen. After medical school, he awoke to how painful his social, spiritual, and psychological life was. He escaped depression through psychotherapy and other efforts to fashion his own life. Al wrote this book of poems and essays to encourage the readers to use their power to change what seems an inevitable existence dictated by their own early circumstances.
We hope to see you!
