Faith Bethelard is a clinical psychologist and author in private practice in New York City and Haverford, PA. As a thought leader in mind-body-spirit approaches to health and wellness, she developed the emotionally centered concepts of cherishment and tenderness and uses them as powerful tools to help her patients resolve difficulties and maintain a positive outlook, optimal health and well-being. Her lifelong interest in Eastern philosophical traditions and meditation influenced her to earn a Doctor of Spiritual Science degree. This led to a unique integration of practical spirituality and psychoanalytic psychology in her co-authored book, Cherishment: A Psychology of the Heart (2000). The New York Times review said “It seems to smile up at the reader, inviting admiration.” Dr. Bethelard is currently working on a new book centered on tenderness. She is intent on building a tenderness community to enhance what she describes as “our individual and collective tenderness consciousness.” This is a form of emotional intelligence she calls our "TQ." Details are on her website, TheTendernessWay.com

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
