Read full description of the books Blest by the Dark Angel: Transformed and Healed through Depression:Stunning memoir, including fourteen images and poems from art exhibit on the transforming possibility of depression.
It looked like Ann Keiffer had it all: an exciting career in a prestigious advertising agency, an adoring husband, a teenage son who kept her laughing, and a circle of close friends.
But there were signs Ann was in trouble. Her son was prophetic when he made a plaque for her with three chiseled words: work, work, work. A short time later, Ann realized something was terribly wrong. She had begun a harrowing descent into the black abyss of clinical depression.
What do you do when the spark of your life goes out...when you feel dead, sorrowing, hopeless? How do you re-light the flame? Ann writes with gripping candor of her depression...and equally powerfully of her healing process. Like close friends, readers will understand why Ann now views her depression as a blessing--dangerous and dark, but ultimately, a blessing.
Is it possible our wounds may sometimes be our healing, that transforming possibilities may be hidden in the darkest passages of our lives? Blest by the Dark Angel is a celebration of the capacity of the human spirit not just to survive emotional and physical pain, but to be transformed by suffering.
Read information about the authorAnn Keiffer is an author, a poet, and an Interfaith Minister of the Arts. Following in the “wounded healer” tradition, Ann brings to her work the compassion and hard-won wisdom mined from her personal experience with major depression and living with a chronic disease.
Ann grew up in a village in the heartland of Ohio. She graduated from Ashland University, where she was a member of the English Department Honors Seminar. She is also a graduate of The Chaplaincy Institute in Berkeley, California where she was ordained as an Interfaith Minister of the Arts.
Though Ann has loved words all her life, it was some time before she named her passion and made writing her career. After her dizzying career spin in the bright lights of advertising, Ann turned her face toward the moon and her writing toward essays, books, and poetry that reflect on the spiritual journey that is life.
