Orthodox Christian counselling & spiritual therapy

I would like to present two Orthodox Christian resources I’ve found which make a beginning at addressing  the need for counselling and spiritual therapy in the U.S.A.

http://orthodoxcounselor.com/  the  website of Erik Bohlin. His site has many links to spiritually beneficial writings which focus on aspects of spiritual healing, such as this appendix to C.S. Lewis’ book The Problem of Pain : http://orthodoxcounselor.com/CSLewis_problem_of_pain.htm  & this homily by Priest Andrew Kencis: Fettered by Fear http://www.stvladimirs.ca/library/fettered-by-fear.html

See also his Home Page

Another site: ocampr.org The Orthodox Christian Association of Medicine, Psychology, and Religion

One of the Fathers said it: “to know one’s self (and one’s sins) is greater than the ability to do miracles.” According to our Standard, the Lord Jesus Christ, we all fall short. We all have dis-ability issues- even as we are all made in the image of God, which gives us the possibility of regaining our likeness to God, so that by the power of His Divine Energies, our abilities may be guided by Him toward the purposes of His eternal Kingdom.

And these are people who want to help us towards these holy goals.

    A blog to help you find God’s will for your life

    Here is the complete profile of the Protestant Evangelical Christian who wrote the blog “to help us find God’s will for our lives:” http://www.blogger.com/profile/04235346174674636664
    His intentions seem to be good, but I wouldn’t classify him as one of the stature of an Orthodox elder- Elder Porphyrios, etc. The blog is of a similar approach as some of St. Tikhon of Zadonsk’s moral teachings. But again, as an Orthodox Christian, I would recommend St.Tikhon first; his life and teachings have stood the test of time in the memory of the Church. But this young man’s thoughts are good ones as well.

    Wide. And I do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be only me or does it seem like some of the remarks appear like they are coming from brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are writing at additional online sites, I would like to follow everything new you have to post. Could you list of the complete urls of all your communal pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
