"Our sorrows and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassion."--Buddha
"The doctor is effective only when he himself is affected. Only the wounded physician heals."--Carl Jung
"When I stand before thee at the day's end, thou shalt see my scars and know that I had my wounds and also my healing." Rabindranath Tagore
Chiron the Centaur in Greek mythology was wounded by an arrow poisoned by a Hydra. In his search for his own cure, he discovered how to heal others. In teaching others healing arts, he found comfort for his own pain.
Jung believed that a "malady of the soul" was the best training a healer could receive. Going through the same pain teaches the Wounded Healer empathy and connects the healer and "patient" spiritually. This connection transforms and heals them both.
I believe God is a Wounded Healer. He felt the pain of humanity and took it upon himself. This connects Him with humanity spiritually. The connection transforms and heals us all. Therefore we can all become Wounded Healers.
