On bringing dark memories into Christ's light

In this new video, recorded during a talk I gave at a private home, I share how the Ignatian approach of my book Remembering God's Mercy: Redeem the Past and Free Yourself from Painful Memories can help people who have not been helped by popular approaches to spiritual healing.

William Doino, Jr., has praised this aspect of Remembering God's Mercy in his review on the First Things site:
Eden’s approach differs substantially from books on “inner healing,” because it reverses the process often recommended by the latter. Instead of starting with oneself, and trying to recall every painful trauma for God to treat, Eden begins with Christ’s sacrifice, and encourages us to unite our wounds to his, as a means of receiving his infinite mercy. She also places a high priority on the Sacraments—especially Confession and the Holy Eucharist—whose transformative qualities she describes movingly.
Remembering God's Mercy is available from Marytown and all major booksellers.
