The author is a noted Twin Cities psychologist and Spring Forest Qigong teacher who has written a spiritual memoir that is an honest and often painful recounting of his journey to health and healing. His story begins with powerful recollections of witnessing death at an early age, including his tour of duty as a Marine in Vietnam. Upon his return, he battled demons including alcohol, drugs, more death and survivor guilt. Dougherty later embarked upon a spiritual journey that ultimately led to solace and profound healing through a variety of traditions, including the Christian faith of his childhood, Native American spirituality, and finally, the practice of meditation and Qigong. Today Dougherty is a pioneer in the use of mind-body healing therapies in psychotherapy, and a noted local and national teacher and speaker on heart-centered psychotherapy.
