    "The Secrets of a Bulletproof Spirit"

    resourcesSometimes you need to look beyond your family and friends for support and spiritual growth. Whether you need help grieving the loss of a loved one, dealing with an illness, starting an authentic spiritual practice, or anything else, these websites and organizations contain a wealth of valuable information to help you start bouncing back.
    There are organizations and support groups out there for every crisis you can imagine. Why not let these groups help you with your heartbreaking hit? Here are just a few places you can turn to for support, services and information. These sites support those of us who have taken the very heavy hits--the loss of a child, a scary diagnosis or debilitating grief---take a few minutes and check out some of these wonderful organizations. (Children's Hospice International)

    Whether your looking for new authentic spiritual practices or just enhancing your existing practices, the information, articles and resources available on these websites can get you on your way. These are some of my favorites and those of my friends who are "in the know," so spend some time browsing and you'll find a connection somewhere--be open to it!

    Author Jillian Quinn has a book out that is a spiritual guidance tool. Her website is filled with links as well, that offer resources "to bounce back". I haven't read the book yet, but heard her on Doctor Radio and found her to be a very positive figure who, herself, has been through the darkest of hours. I hope there is some resource here helpful to any of you?

    Hey Marilyn, "Doctor Radio" is a station that is offered on Sirius and XM satelite radio. Just like CNN has headline news and there are standup comedy channels, doctor radio has 24/7 radio shows that I find quite interesting. I'll post a link so you can see for yourself about what I've described. There are so many programs that I have learned from, too:

    Of course you have to subscribe to even listen to it online, but I have it in my car, and it's wonderful.

    Take care, B

    she was a guest on doctor radio 2 different times and I listened. I am going to order her book because it seems like a great read. I wanted to share the website because it has tools and guidance offered for free, if you don't want to buy the book, or if you aren't certain yet. I liked this passage I found on the website, and I think others may relate as well:

    The Secrets of the Bulletproof Spirit is a beacon of information and inspiration when the going gets tough. It reveals a comprehensive plan for facing and surmounting the troubles and sorrows we all face. In this comforting book, the authors expertly and compassionately guide us as we learn to tap into the power of our own bulletproof spirits. First, unveiling the thinking and behavior patterns that keep us stuck in grief, anger and pain, the authors then show us how to use the hardest hits we take to create the life of our dreams.

    It also seems she has her own radio show; here's more about her:

    Jillian Quinn is an Associate Minister at the Interfaith Temple in New York City, a member of Spiritual Directors International, and a sought-after spiritual and life coach. Jillian is also the host of Bounce Back with Jillian Quinn, a talk radio show in New York's Hudson Valley that is devoted to helping listeners find the happiness on the other side of the hits they've taken. She is a sought-after spiritual coach and a member of Spiritual Directors International. Jillian speaks and conducts workshops on topics such as spiritual resilience and forgiveness around the country. Her work has been featured on The Early Show on CBS, The Discovery Channel, The God Show, in magazines such as Self , Personal Excellence, and Savvy Family and on countless radio shows around the country, including programming on National Public Radio affiliate stations. She is also the recipient of a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities for scholarship in the area of Transcendental Philosophy. She lives in Millbrook, New York with her husband and three young children.
