I heard the term Wounded Healer attributed to Ahmed Hankir in a BBC Radio broadcast – Start the Week – today 8th March 2021. I am not sure where the term ‘Wounded Healer’ came from originally but I quoted it in a poem/hymn written before 1993 and published in 1997 in my book Blinded by the Dazzle.
1 Will you join the wounded healer, Crucified upon the cross, Rising to the human challenge, Offering love through utter loss? 2 Will you live for liberation, Or, if need be, will you die, Not deflected from God's purpose, All deceitful art defy? 3 Wounded healers, men and women, Offer their humanity, Share God's mission: living, loving, Lifting, holding, setting free. 3A Wounded healers, men and women, Offer your humanity, Share God's mission: living, loving, Lifting, holding, setting free.
