Richard Carlson, Ph.D., holds a doctoral degree in psychology from Sierra University, San Francisco, California. He is an author and advocate in the areas of self-improvement and spiritual growth.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

Foreword

This book asks many of the best and most well-known nontraditional healers to distill their thoughts to the primary factor each has found to be the basis of healing. In the heartwarming sections ahead, you will have the opportunity to savor the answers to the single question they were asked: What, in your experience, is the key element or golden thread that unites healing processes? The contributors set aside secondary thoughts to present their primary realizations in an original, never-before-published manuscript.

To see this material arranged in the form of an anthology is inspiring because it offers us the perspective of many people, which no single healer, however successful, can provide. We are no longer limited to the experience of the blind men examining different parts of the elephant, unable to sense what the whole animal is like. Instead, we get a rich, multidimensional picture of healing.

As a traditionally trained physician and a creative explorer of nontraditional healing modalities, I am in a unique position to critically appreciate what is presented here. Let me put it succinctly and poetically:

Anthology literally means a gathering of flowers. I am moved and inspired by the unique beauty of each flower that makes up this arrangement, and by the profound mystery to which the arrangement as a whole brings me. I am sure you will feel the same.

Format: Paperback
In the foreword to this book, we are told that the word anthology "literally means a gathering of flowers." The editors of this remarkable collection of essays asked healers from various perspectives to share their ideas, in order to define and foster the "common denominator, or 'golden thread,' that unites all healers and healing methods of ancient, current, and future times."
Below are some representative insights (there are many more contributors -- and much more to each essay-- than are quoted below):
Bernie Siegel, M.D., F.A.C.S., founded the Exceptional Cancer Patients program and is author of Love, Medicine, and Miracles. He believes that his own role -- teaching people how to feel and express love -- succeeds only if he is able to show them that they are lovable.
Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, M.D., is noted world-wide for her work in death, dying, and transition, her books including On Death and Dying and AIDS: The Ultimate Challenge. She believes that healing does not occur only at an individual level: "Because each individual is connected through a vast network of relationships to innumerable other people and creatures on the planet, the process of healing even one person has far-reaching ramifications."
Hugh Prather -- a crisis therapist, columnist, and minister who has written such books as I Touch the Earth/The Earth Touches Me -- has concluded that "all healing approaches heal the body in the identical way; the only difference is in how they limit their options." The "great mistaken assumption" is that healing necessarily means a physical improvement -- it is not up to us to prejudge the form in which the gift of healing is to be received for a given person.
Joan Borysenko, Ph.D.

19 of 20 people found the following review helpful By Bill Herring, LCSW on October 19, 1998
Format: Paperback
Designed "to search for the common denominator......that unites all healers and healing methods", this book pulls together almost 40 relatively short essays by various authors noted for their work in healing body and soul. Because of this approach, some chapters have more relevance than others, depending on the interests of the reader. Reading the ideas of a particular author can spark a desire to read more by that person, so in that sense this is a nice overview course on the breadth of attitudes held by contemporary healers, both traditional and alternative. It probably should be included as required reading by all practitioners of the healing arts.

21 of 23 people found the following review helpful By David Spero (mrrogers@igc.org) on September 4, 1998
Format: Paperback
This collection of essays by a Who's Who of American Healing started changing my life twenty minutes after I picked it up. The advice of people like Louise Hay and Carl Simonton went straight to the heart of issues we all face with our own health and the health of our loved ones and clients.
Of course, not all of the 37 different takes on the healing process will seem relevant to any individual reader. But it's easy to get what you need; most of the essays are no longer than 1500 words. Authors include writers Lynn Andrews, Norman Cousins, and Ram Dass, visionary MD's Gerald Jampolsky, Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, Deepak Chopra and Rachel Remen, and alternative healers Sun Bear and Dolores Krieger.
If you were my friend, and if you practiced in any area of health, or faced health issues yourself, I would want you to read this book.

Format: Paperback
This book was for a class I was taking. It will be one that I will keep because of all the information that it has. Very inspirational. Everyone in the class loved it. Each chapter is from a different author and their beliefs on the roles that healer play and the impact they have on those that are ill or are despondent in many ways. Some just talk about the relationships of people and how each is affected. Should be requirement for any level of education. Doctor's could really benefit from this when dealing with patients to learn how to be compassionate. There are so many that are lacking and out of touch treating people like they are just another in the cattle to treat and dispose of. Really anyone who has a job dealing with clients in any career. Read it for real.

Format: Paperback
I have been in the healing arts (licensed Counselor)for 25 years. This volume of personal insights by healing professionals is without doubt one of the greatest contributions to the field. It is my wish that a copy of this book be put into the hands of every person working in the health & healing industries.

As I read the different stories in this book. They were all talking about how the healing power of words can effect people. I enjoy reading this book because it came from medical healers. What they had to do to get the patients work with them to heal them. Very powerful moving book.
