The Natural Brilliance of the Soul

A Soldier’s Story
of War and Reconciliation

Jan Hatanaka, Ph.D.

“Dr. Hatanaka’s exhaustive research and analysis have resulted in a book that should be an essential tool for those professionals who are assisting our soldiers having difficulties adjusting to life after the stress of service in a war zone. Likewise, soldiers, their families, and their friends experiencing difficulties understanding their own feelings and frustrations would benefit from taking the time to read this practical toolbox of ideas.”
