Amazing, lovingly written book that completely captures the essence of healing. It is written full of hope and optimism, and is written with a complete focus on helping others - especially those in vulnerable and painful situations - feel better. It is extensively and methodically researched and has an impressive evidence base - which, as a physician, I am drawn to (many people writing about healing are too quick to exploit the vulnerability that comes with pain and sickness to promise the moon, using unfounded and dubiously copyrighted techniques, for excessive sums of money and little proof of objective results). That being said -- not everything in this modality of healing can be proven with a randomized, double-blind controlled trial - and shouldn't be. The power and inspiration of subjective experience and the unexplainable must be respected by mainstream medicine, which certainly does not have all the answers to a sizeable swath of the population's ills (especially pain, chronic disease, and disability). To this end, the author's work is an invaluable and profound addition to my medical library. I applaud the author for the compassion, intelligence and sincerity he demonstrates throughout the work. I will be reading and re-reading this for many years to come, and it has helped me in my own journey.
