Our modern world is speeding up. It has become fast in so many ways. Yet the important things take time. The Slow Food Movement was begun by an Italian who insisted that a good meal was meant to be enjoyed—in the preparation and in the eating and in the cleaning up. In the world of counseling, fast therapies and one-pill fix-its skip past the soul work.

Heart and soul prefer slow. “Fast” skips the enjoyment—and the healing. This book gathers counselors of many kinds—licensed psychologists, other professionals, as well as lawyers, wedding planners, physiotherapists, school administrators, and good friends—to comment on what are the most enjoyable and effectively healing ways of relating between human beings.
