Pagan approaches to healing

With the influence of the transpersonal in psychology and the growth of respect for indigenous traditions in the helping professions, a need for the inclusion of a spiritual dimension in therapy is now accepted in many quarters. Much of the literature on the role of spirituality and healing in therapy is based in a Christian context; some draw from the Native American and shamanic traditions, as well as the Eastern influences of Zen Buddhism, Sufism, and Taoism. In terms of Paganism, there appears to be very little current counseling and therapy literature available to counter the misinformation published during the early 1990s, which linked witchcraft, magic, and the occult with satanism and ritual child abuse.
