Book Description

In Resonance, internationally respected cell biologist and healing facilitator, Joyce Hawkes, Ph.D., offers the best of science, spirit, and storytelling. Richly detailed with Joyce's experiences studying shamanic healing in South East Asia and stories of the people she has assisted back to health, this book will allow readers to explore their own ability to heal at every level. They will discover current research and fascinating findings about the language of their cells and how these tiny constituents of the body communicate, connect, and touch. Alongside this biological backdrop, they'll find fresh mind-body imagery, insights, and empowering healing techniques that will take them on a deep inner journey. Throughout the book, Hawkes also describes the profound, numinous experiences she shared with shamans, priests, and healers. Each chapter is presented as a couplet-two words, two related ideas that together provide a simple, grounded starting place for a personal practice of health and vitality. Resonance gives readers valuable tools to enhance their health at the cell-level, their spirit at the soul-level, and their consciousness at the mystery-level.

Editorial Reviews


“Resonance is inspirational, beautiful, masterful, helpful, wonderful, graceful, and even transformational. It is difficult to read this book and not use superlatives.”
—      Gary E. Schwartz, Ph.D., is a professor of psychology, medicine, neurology, psychiatry, and surgery at the University of Arizona and the author of The Energy Healing Experiments and The Sacred Promise.

 “As Joyce points out in this book, never underestimate the energy and power of overwhelming love and compassion to transmute or transform that which is out of balance into that which is in balance.”
—Dale Buegel, M.D.

5.0 out of 5 stars resonates healing February 27, 2012
By ck
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Resonance is a well written, incredibly helpful book for healers and anyone needing healing. As someone who is both, I've read countless books on complementary healing and allopathic medicine and Joyce's book surpasses most with her clarity, insight, knowledge, experience, and practical applications. Resonance possesses something special; unlike many books in this genre, Resonance truly emphasizes the process of healing.

A few of excerpts that I found particularly beneficial include:
"Out of the 100 trillion cells, how many do you suppose might be sick during an illness? The fact is, a small fraction of you is caught up in the illness, while the majority of your cells carry on the full function of life. To focus on health rather than disease can support your successful use of medical treatment along with practices that help you return to balance and harmony."

"...the most basic aspect of the work of healing [is] compassion, not intellectual protocols."

"With diseases more complex than the flu, we often don't have a clear sense of cause, nor do our doctors. I've found at such times that the best approach is to let go of 'cause' and face up to 'what is.' In this way, we can concentrate all of our energies on returning to health."

Resonance, like Joyce's first book Cell-Level Healing, is a joy to read and provides accessible tools for true healing.

Resonance shares nine practices to assist one to tune into the deeper self, the core being, and thus enable one to awaken to the essence of life: -

1. Appreciation and awareness
2. Intuition and action
3. Presence and communication
4. Connection and protection
5. Balance and harmony
6. Compassion and clarity
7. Attention and focus
8. Sensitivity and joy
9. Resonance and transformation

Within each chapter Joyce shares some of her own personal experiences, alongside `Tune in to Resonance' and `The Practice'. I felt instant recognition for the Tune in to Resonance guidance, as this is a journey I have walked all of my life. I recall as a child, knowing the key was to be still and feel the resonance for any circumstance and situation. This has been a lifelong journey, and one that is at the core of who I am, and my own ability to navigate life with joy and bliss. It is truly wonderful that Joyce has organised these wonderfully lucid perceptions into a series of practices that will allow the person who has not experienced such as yet, to step through this process in far less time. I recall needing to be still, often alone, not allowing or liking disturbance by others when I was tuning into resonance. What a gift `Resonance' book truly is, I only wish it had been available for me to read as a child.

I believe so many people can benefit from the `Sensitivity and Joy" practice. So many people do not know how to manage sensitivity with great ease. I always knew in my heart that every negative has an equal positive, and that there must be some hidden strength behind my sensitivity, and certainly this is what unfolded for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a wonderful book! March 9, 2012
I found Dr. Hawkes "Resonance" inspiring! The "nine practices" are wonderfully effective ideas to apply in personal practice. I have found them helpful and deeply supportive of health and spiritual growth. The personal experiences the author also includes are intriguing and add new perspectives to explore. I would recommend this book to my friends, family, and clients, it is an exceptional read.
