Sacred Self-Care: Daily Practices for Nurturing Our Whole Selves
Paperback: HarperOne, 2023
A seven-week guide to help you shift your behaviors and create lifelong habits to care for your whole self— mind, body, and soul.
“In a world that has cheapened self-care, Chanequa Walker-Barnes provides a valuable, faithful, and much-needed antidote.” —Jeff Chu, author of Does Jesus Really Love Me?
Taking care of ourselves is essential, and lately, we’ve started to pay more attention to the ways our physical bodies need and deserve nourishment. But we are not just bodies, we sacred beings, and our souls need just as much care and attention to be healthy.
As a clinical psychologist, pastor, and activist, Dr. Chanequa Walker-Barnes has studied and worked with clients, clergy, seminary faculty, faith-based activists, and others to encourage them to think of self-care as both a divine right and a sacred obligation. She has developed a seven-week guide gathering activities, habits, disciplines, and practices that promote spiritual, physical, emotional, mental, and relational wholeness.
Also included is an inventory for identifying areas you may need to focus on, and a “Rule of Life” guide to help you direct your self-care practice and maintain it throughout the year. Inspiring and practical, ruminative and actionable, Sacred Self-Care invites us on a journey to craft a sustainable self-care practice to care for our whole selves.
