Editorial Reviews

Review

Healing Words for the Body, Mind and Spirit is written beautifully and in a way that we can truly understand how to use the magic and power of words to transform our lives. ----Sandra Ingerman, author of Medicine for the Earth and Soul Retrieval

An inspired idea whose time has come. A great way to overcome the hopelessness and helplessness of the many mind-boggling illnesses that plague out society today. Caren offers us a positive transformative experience that can lead to a whole new definition of healing. Every writer, every reader, every speaker knows that words hold power--it's time for all of us to allow their power to heal us, not just instruct or entertain. It is a much-needed book. ----Jane Voorhees, recipient of the Charles Haslom Award for Excellence in Bookselling, Publishers Weekly Bookseller of the Year

Words create images, which can generate healing effects throughout the body. These effects are too powerful to be left to chance. Caren Goldman gives us a tool we can purposefully use for the healing of body, mind, and spirit. She is an eloquent, compassionate, and skilled guide who has been there. ----Larry Dossey, M.D., best-selling author of Reinventing Medicine and Prayer Is Good Medicine

More About the Author

Caren Goldman's newest book, RESTORING LIFE'S MISSING PIECES: The Spiritual Power of Remembering and Reuniting with People, Places, Things and Self, was honored as a "Best Spiritual Book for 2011."

Caren wrote Healing Words in 2000 after being diagnosed with and treated for breast cancer. She is a grateful survivor who donates her royalties to cancer causes. She is also the Jewish co-author of Finding Jesus, Discovering Self and Across The Threshold, Into The Questions -- two acclaimed, experiential books on Jesus of Nazareth, as well as the writer for the Omega Institute Mind, Body, Spirit Book: Vitality & Wellness (Dell 1999).

I've given this book to two dear friends who are in need of comfort and healing.

The work moves people beyond simple perceptions of self to explore and open the pathways to healing on every level.

I have her book on my bedside table and like to open it at random and read a pair of words in the evening.

Format: Paperback
Goldman has gathered a well-balanced collection of words, quotes, and stories for those of us in need of healing (whether we realize we need healing or not!). Each word consists of two pages in the book, a perfect length for our busy world. After getting out of bed, on the commute to work, at the dentist office, stuck in traffic, before bed -- we can use these little blocks of time, so often wasted, to support our own healing.
Supplementing the words is a list of suggestions for using the book: journaling, meditation, prayer, as inspiration for art and music, etc. My favorite of Caren's suggestions is considering "Why did this word choose me?" as a counterpoint to "Why did I choose this word?"
This small, beautiful book is a treasure, sure to be useful for individuals looking to heal themselves as well as healers looking to help their clients.

Format: Paperback
Caren Goldman has provided a tool for all to use to help us become whole. We all need to think of ways to awaken our inner spirit and this book provides us with words and thoughts which provoke healing and wholeness. The oportunity to take a few minutes daily and think about life's fuller meaning can only help with the healing we all need and desire. Caren's book can be used by those suffering from emotional, physical and psycological illness to reach for a fuller understanding of their place in the world. As a Perinatologist who works with women and their families who must experience unexpected and unfortunate outcomes in their pregnancies, it is often valuable to have a tool like caren's book which these families can use to help them make some sense of their difficult situation. I have encouraged many of my patients to utilize books and other resources to deal with their internal suffering and begin or continue on the road to personal wholeness. This book is just what is needed to help those who are suffering to reach into themselves and discover a source to wholeness.

After giving this book to individuals and families in need of healing, I continue to learn of others who are moved by the explorative value. The work moves people beyond simple perceptions of self to explore and open the pathways to healing on every level. I've noticed that the text, initially given to the terminally ill, is being read by every member of the person's family! The text has moved me from a dicotomous "self" to a deeper understanding and I look forward to this journey! I know a great work when I ponder on the content after reading it, and throughout the day, I find myself thinking of one -- or several -- of the words.

Format: Paperback
This was given to me during the middle of chemotherapy, when I was quite discouraged. This book is a wonderful resource - it does not confuse healing with a medical cure, but uses a broader definition of healing.
I have given four copies of this book to friends who have either been diagnosed with chronic illnesses (cancer, diabetes) or who have undergone wrenching life changes. All have called or written with stories of how this book has helped them have a new perspective, and to see hope.
The essays are also short enough that someone who has very little energy can read the book. Although some of the book is faith-based, it is not faith-specific. It was written after the author and her family underwent a dreadful series of diseases and disasters, and calls on their experiences and faith for some of the illustrations.
Affirmation books are generally wishy-washy. I find "new age" stuff to be full of pabulum. This book pulls no punches, and the writing carries an honesty and vigor that is refreshing. This is an excellent book, in every meaning of the phrase.
Buy it, for there shall surely come a time that you will either need it immediately, or will need to give it with little warning.

HEALING WORDS is a masterpiece, springing out of the cauldron of Caren Goldman's life experience plus her research of many years. Clearly this book is not intended to be read from begining to end, any more than a dictionary would be read that way. I have her book on my bedside table and like to open it at random and read a pair of words in the evening. The one on Grief especially spoke to me the other night. In my opinion, HEALING WORDS is balanced, acknowledging both sides. It is not New Agey with all one-sided lightness of being stuff. I find it both realistic and hopeful.

Caren Writes an incredible healing tool for everyone. I picked up this book and immediately realized what a powerful writer she is. I could not put this wonderful book down and recommend it to all who are interested in personal well being. A wonderful spiritual and physical pick me up. Thank you Caren.

Format: Paperback
I just wanted to say a few words of appreciation for 101 Healing Words. I work with people living with life threatning illnesses and mortality issues, as well as the emotional and spiritual aspects of how their past may play into their present. So many people with illness seem to have a troubled past and now an unpredictible future. I felt so connected to many of the stories and the images they provoked of not only my clients, but of myself. I think this book is very valuable to anyone that has ever dirrectly or personally dealt with illness, whether it be physical or spiritual, or anyone that just needs some general inspiration. Thank you for this wonderful addition to my bookshelf!
