POWER OF THEN James Bremner
The problems we encounter in our everyday lives, from the midlife crisis to loneliness and the search for meaning, often seem of the modern world, but they have been around for centuries. The Power of Then applies the teachings of sages and lessons of their lives to emotional, mental and spiritual problems that perturb us today. From the experiences of the medieval housewife Margery Kempe, patron saint of the midlife crisis, to the insights of Carl Jung, scholar James Bremner unlocks the wisdom of the past and applies it to the present, in a clear, engaging way. Full of encouragement and reflection from some of the greatest sages the world has known, their pioneering advice is still a radical way of changing our thinking.
