Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Hands of Light: A Guide to Healing Through the Human Energy Field, by Barbara Ann Brennan, is a scientist's look at the field of bioenergetic healing, offering specific techniques towards expanding perceptual tools of healing, seeing auras, understanding psychodynamics and the human energy field, and spiritual healing. Trained as a physicist and psychotherapist, Brennan has spent the last 15 years studying the human energy field and working as a healer. Hands of Light goes beyond conventional, objective knowledge while retaining scientific clarity. It details a study of the human energy field and how it is intimately connected to a person's health and well being and contains essential information for anyone involved in healing and conscious health care, including people seeking to heal themselves. Science and spirituality may currently be at odds, but fortunately there will always be scientists who are spiritual seekers, and it is in the mingling of the two worlds where wisdom is born. --Jodie Buller

Review

"Barbara Brennan's work is mind-opening. Her concepts of the role disease plays and how healing is achieved certainly fit in with my experience."
-- Bernie S. Siegel, M.D., author of Love, Medicine, and Miracles

Format: Paperback
I consider HANDS OF LIGHT to be an essential reference book for anyone who is seriously interested in exploring energy healing. I am impressed with the way author Barbara Ann Brennan describes her early childhood experiences of sensing energy fields around trees and all living things, and even more impressed that after many years of training in physics and western ways of scientism, she never lost her inner sense of knowing.
HANDS OF LIGHT includes many pictures of auras and chakras, which serve to illustrate her points about how to identify common personality types and relationship types based on her in-depth personal healing experiences. Brennan also proceeds to explain how to help improve one's health by working on one's energy field.
Full enjoyment of HANDS OF LIGHT requires that the reader either have an open mind regarding the fact that many people can see auras and chakras, or the ability to see these things oneself. Brennan provides exercises to help people learn how to see energy fields, so any reader with a sincere interest in the subject of energy healing will most likely be very satisfied with this classic book.

Format: Paperback
This book is a must for anyone interested in laying on hands and in understanding the human energy field in general. Barbara Brennan gives substantial background information concerning the disease process and how disturbances and imbalances in the aura manifest in the physical body. She then gives in-depth techniques for correcting these problems on a holistic level, including lucid examples of the ongoing process of healing.
My only complaint about this book is that it fails to address the highly subjective nature of higher perception, but those who are aware of auras should be able to relate her way of seeing with their own.
Although it may not be the best introduction for the beginning healer, overall, this book is an excellent addition to the shelves of intermediate to advanced healers, and it will serve them for years as their practice of the healing arts continues.

If you are interested in self-healing of ANY part of your person or are involved in the medical field, alternative medicine, hands on healing...etc, then buy this book! (Buy "Light Emerging" also!) Most books on healing using the human aura are flaky nonsense. In fact, most (not all) "New Age" books are nonsense in my opinion. This book is a strong exception. I honestly believe that this book will one day be considered a revolutionary text in modern medicine - that the techniques outlined in this text will one day become standard practices in modern medicine. I might add, I'm a very skeptical reader when it comes to non-traditional thought. I'm not some flake running around with crystals on my neck "sucking up bad energy." I'm a practicing mechanical engineer with a strong traditional educational background (incl. grad degree) in critical analysis. I should also mention I've attended one of her healing workshops and saw things that completely amazed me and also some things that seemed a bit odd. However, overall I would certainly recommend going to one of her workshops. If interested, you may wish to search for her web site under "Barbara Brennan School of Healing"

Format: Paperback
I, like many, was blown away when I first read 'Hands of Light'. It is a very good book, even if channeling is over-emphasized (be careful just what it is you are channeling and do you really need to channel anyway...) but there are many books out there now that include things left out of 'Hands of Light'. For example, I have found that 'Energetic Anatomy' by Mark Rich (hard to find; energeticanatomy.com is the only way I found) is just as mind-blowing and has details that other books like Hands of Light leave out. So, this book is good, but it is not the be-all end-all. Multiple sources is the best way to go in this field.

Format: Paperback
The author of this book is an amazing healer. There are not many like her in this world and her book is on my number one list of recommendations for anyone who wants to learn energetic healing. I use her techniques in my healing classes. I have a great respect for her work even though I have never met her!

I wouldn't recommend this to anyone new to energetic healing. I feel a new student should study the chakras first, perhaps some hands on healing methods, such as quantum touch, before reading this book as it can get a bit technical for the beginner, however, once the student has an understanding of the aura and chakras and how to use them to heal, this book will take the practitioner to new heights of healing they couldn't get any other way. It may be the only method out there that shows you the psychological energy patterns of an individual.

Also, it can be referenced time and time again.

Barbara Brennan has written one of the best illustrated books on Energy Healing I have seen yet. As a Reiki Master / Teacher, when trying to explain what the human aura is or the chakras or what negative energy could be, I us this book. The illustrations are excellent as well as the written explanations.

Format: Paperback
I am a devote Christian and I am frustrated of how the church, and I mean born-again denominational churches, treat "hands-on" healing as just like a "miracle". This book taught me that it is not just a "miracle". WE ARE A MIRACLE OURSELVES LIVING ON A MIRACULOUS BLOB OF ENRGY CALLED EARTH. WE ARE CAPABLE OF HEALING OURSELVES BECAuSE GOD IS IN US-EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US-HE IS IN US. HE CREATED A REAL UNIVERSE-MATTER AND ENERGY-INTACT and Barbara Brennan-a human form of love and compassion, a scientist and a healer-is an instrument of God who is being used to explain this (not so called) 'mysteries' of our cosmos thru this book. I am learning from her book and I am delighted to be enlightened. I can tell all here that COMPASSION AND LOVE WORKS. I can tell you that I can see auras and chakras now after reading her book but I sill have to deal some issues with myself that when I know it has been dealt with, I know I will be able to heal myself and heal others. You too can...
