Matrix Healing
Raphael Kellman
1400048966
Aug 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Integrating the worlds of Kabbalah and modern science, Matrix Healing is a powerful new approach to wellness.

The ancient mystical tradition of Kabbalah shows us that within our day-to-day material world exists another unseen world, a realm of great energy and healing power that Dr. Raphael Kellman has called “the matrix.” In this realm, we all have the potential for perfect health, and in Matrix Healing Dr. Kellman shows us how to get there.

Matrix Healing is the first book written by a medical doctor to apply principles of Kabbalah—including the power of meditation, the vitality of compassion and acts of kindness, and the sacred powers of water—to physical health. Dr. Kellman teaches us how to shift our focus from the darkness of disease to the light of possibility,...

Healing Words

From Kirkus Reviews
Physician Dossey (Medicine and Meaning, 1991, etc.) continues to probe links between medicine and spirituality in this popular study of the healing power of prayer. Prayer heals? Hardly news in the religious world, where Hebrew Bible and New Testament alike attest to prayer's medicinal effects. But for science, it's a revelation, one confirmed by dozens of laboratory experiments that Dossey cites. Prayer can help with high blood pressure, asthma, heart attacks, headaches, and anxiety; moreover, it can alter enzyme activity, blood cell growth, and the germination of seeds. Dossey rejects the traditional Judeo-Christian notion of prayer as a relationship to a transcendental God, offering instead his own quasi-pantheistic view of prayer as a ``genuinely nonlocal event'' directed to the ``Absolute'' in all things. In...

Book Review
In times of sickness or adversity, humans tend to seek comfort and healing from a greater power. We know this quest as prayer; universally it has brought solace and healing to many seekers. For those who lack the words, inspiration, or familiarity with prayer, Maggie Oman has assembled a collection of healing prayers for every day of the year. Included are voices as familiar as Duke Ellington ("Every man prays in his own language, and there is no language that God does not understand."), Bobby McFerrin, and May Sarton, along with voices as reverent as the Chinook Indians, Kahlil Gibran, and Mother Teresa. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Prayer Is Good Medicine
Larry Dossey

Jan 1996
Paperback

Book Review
Since Larry Dossey wrote his first book, Healing Words: The Power of Prayer and the Practice of Medicine, he has toured the world meeting with audiences as diverse as Pentagon employees, church groups, and the British parliament. Regardless of the audience, Dossey noticed that most everyone seems interested in four general discussions: the scientific evidence for prayer, the controversies associated with prayer experiments, what prayer is, and how to pray. Prayer Is Good Medicine divides these discussions into four neatly contained sections. As prayer moves into the center stage of Western medicine Prayer Is Good Medicine acts as a modern-day prayer book as well as an ethical touchstone for healers and seekers.

The Energy of Prayer: How to Deepen Your Spiritual Practice
Thich Nhat Hanh
1888375558
March 2006
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. Hanh, the Vietnamese Zen master and author of more than 60 books, asks: "Why is prayer successful at some times and not at others?" Other questions also animate this brief primer on prayer: How can we pray for healing, say from lung cancer, when that disease is the natural karmic result of our own choices (e.g., smoking)? And to whom do we pray, especially since Buddhism teaches that there is no separate, distinct being called God who exists apart from creation? Hanh has a winning style, nimbly mixing deep philosophy with personal anecdotes and helpful illustrations. He also introduces spiritual practices, including the expected (reciting sutras, bowing, or performing walking and sitting meditation) as well as the unusual and ecumenical (praying to the living as well as the dead.) He also...

Reinventing Medicine

Paperback

Book Review
Cue the theme song to the Twilight Zone: Research shows your plants won't grow as well when you're depressed as when you're happy. Praying for someone else will improve your own health, too. The growth of E. coli bacteria is inhibited when a group of people merely think about stopping the growth. And qi gong practitioners in San Francisco can kill cancer cells in other peoples' bodies--by willing the cells to die. These ideas surely sound ludicrous, but these and other similarly mindboggling studies have been commissioned and replicated by researchers at Harvard, Duke, McGill, and other esteemed universities.

Larry Dossey is known as the father of mind-body medicine and perhaps best known for his advocacy of the role of prayer in healing in 1995's bestselling Healing Words: The Power of Prayer and the Practice of...

The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things
Larry Dossey
030720989X
Feb 2006
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Holistic physician Dossey examines the potential power of 14 readily accessible sources of well-being, providing a strong case for utilizing such remedies before more extreme measures. His expansive discourse on optimism, forgetting, music, miracles, plants, risk taking and other "simple" things makes clear that, while these are hardly "simple" when fully appreciated, often they are undervalued or completely ignored by the mainstream medical community, which turns to high-tech procedures and worst-case scenarios as a first resort. According to Dossey (Reinventing Medicine), a nearly single-minded clinical focus has obscured patients' interpretation of their own experiences, leaving out important clues about how people heal. He provides numerous examples of those who have discovered "spontaneous healing," which...

Healing with Homeopathy

Jan 1996
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
For those intrigued with, but understandably confused by, the hoopla surrounding this increasingly popular field of alternative medicine, Healing with Homeopathy is the perfect primer. Homeopathy, an approach to healing that at its core is concerned with stimulating the body's internal healing response, has a 200-year history in Europe and America, colorfully illustrated here. (Its demise in the U.S. was mostly due to heavy regulation and suppression by the American Medical Association after 1846.)

The authors, both traditionally trained medical doctors, have witnessed the power of homeopathy for treating digestive disorders, common colds, respiratory ailments, headaches, emotional disturbances, childhood illnesses such as colic, and women's health problems including menstrual cramps and morning sickness. They stress...
