Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Based on the conviction that "we can reverse environmental pollution through spiritual methods," Ingerman (A Fall to Grace) coaches readers through inward and outward preparation for performing "transmutation," the channeling of spiritual energy to create positive physical effects. Given the firm belief that it can be done, the inner preparation of spiritual harmony and the creation of sacred space through ceremonial ritual in community with others, Ingerman promises that while pollution should be avoided, it can be dispelled after the fact. Citing the purportedly miraculous cures accomplished with natural water sources allegedly imbued with spiritual energy (e.g. the miracle cures of Lourdes, the parting of the Red Sea and the water that Jesus is said to have turned into wine), Ingerman illustrates her claims with controlled experimentation with water pollution. Her clear, practical exercises call upon a variety of ancient and current resources, including shamanism, to recruit assistance from the spiritual realm in executing her metaphysical prescription for reversing environmental damage: "intention + love + harmony + union + focus + concentration + imagination = transmutation." While Ingerman may not convert skeptics, she is highly regarded in New Age circles for her previous work focusing on personal transformation, soul loss, and recalling higher purpose. Fans of Carolyn Myss and Larry Dossey will appreciate her role in spearheading the movement toward using individual spiritual energies to heal the world around us.

From Library Journal

Ingerman, a therapist and well-known practitioner of soul retrieval, provides a thorough, thoughtful treatise on personal and planetary healing through the spiritual transmutation of environmental toxins. Motivated by her near-death experiences, she contemplates unconditional love through respect for sacred space, divine power, and nature's elements. Key chapters cover the development of a personal creation story as well as releasing and calling-down ceremonies. First-person accounts (Ingerman chronicles healing chemically polluted water through spiritual applications), mystics' narratives, and "consciousness-raising" exercises help to clarify the lessons. Written as if she were walking with us on a daily journey, but one that is essentially ours, this text presents a "bringing heaven to earth" philosophy that will appeal to both motivated newcomers and advanced searchers of the psyche. Some psychotherapy rhetoric is included, but the thrust is fresh and original: spirit in action yields measurable results. Recommended for larger public libraries. Lisa Liquori, Syracuse, NY

Format: Paperback
Medicine for the Earth offers hope for all of us in the power of our intent: to cleanse environmental toxins, to heal our world under attack, and to open our hearts. Ingerman focuses on solutions, weaving research and personal experience, tools for shifting consciousness, and a philosophy of healing as she returns always to what we can do. Many writers talk about consciousness of the earth and our relationship with all beings; few provide such a clear map and so many experiential vehicles to us for visioning a different future and making it happen.
Ingerman writes from the worldview of a deep ecologist (though she does not identify herself this way) and a lifetime of shamanic healing and counseling. She provides guided visualizations, meditations, and many ideas for shamanic journeying for readers to expand their relationship with and consciousness of all aspects of the natural and human worlds. Like Cameron's The Artist's Way, this is a book rich with practices to be explored individually as well as in group and community. Unlike most self-help books, however, Medicine for the Earth speaks to our deep desire to transform the world as well as ourselves.
As a meditator I have been moved profoundly by Ingerman's philosophy that we need to shift the internal assumptions and perceptions that get in the way of making change. As a shamanic practicioner, I've had a wonderful time exploring Ingerman's journeying ideas and using my skills in a reciprocal way to heal the earth. And as an environmental activist I have found it exciting to focus my spiritual energy on the problems of pollution and environmental degradation. In sum, this groundbreaking book is inspiring to read and deeply rewarding to work with.

Sandra Ingerman's ground-breaking book deserves careful reading, study, and practice. Through her analysis of spiritual texts and recountings of miraculous events, she provides the reader with a fresh look and understanding of the existence and practice of miracles. Written for a general audience that accepts the spiritual nature of existence, her book presents clear and precise methods to work on our own physical, emotional and mental toxins as well as those in found in water, and by extension in all of the natural world.
What is extraordinary about her book is the clarity of her vision and the simplicity of her methods. And more to the point, these have proven to be successful. While religious historians may balk a bit at her overview of miracles, Sandra Ingerman decribes a blue print for individuals and groups to follow to purify the inner and outer worlds- a heartening prospect indeed!
I highly recommend this book, and encourage all readers to try the practices she suggests.

Sandra Ingerman may well repeat what others of the same persuasion have said. But I find her version easy to grasp. The world is in "pain" and we are the only ones who can do anything about it. This is a wonderful book in learning to accept part of the responsibility and slowely start to practice what many before has preached. Get to know yourself, clean the disturbances, cut old useless ties and lend a hand!
She has looked into more religions and in the end it all boils down to the same. Become one with universe...

I am so excited to finally have this book in my hands to read. It is a gift. Last year I was part of a group of 75 people at the Foundation Workshop. We came together working with Sandra and the principals she sets forth in the book. The ritual and celebration of working with my "Self" and the water through the transmutation process changed my life on so many levels, it is a real blessing to my Self, my family and my community. I encourage you to read the book and start to dialog with that sacred part of you that just "knows" this stuff real. . .so we share and heal the Earth. Namaste.
