Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

It sounds like science fiction, but more and more people are tapping into the healing power of the mind. Bill Moyers brought this topic to light in a big way with his bestselling Healing and the Mind, but that was just an overview. For step-by-step instructions, you can turn to Tulku Thondup's The Healing Power of Mind. Thondup, Harvard scholar and Tibetan Buddhist monk since the age of 5, says that in the Tibetan tradition the mind is the key to health, and that mental grasping is often the cause of our physical undoing. A cosmic counselor of sorts, Thondup guides us first through simple exercises in relaxation and accepting present circumstances. His healing method centers on visualization, beginning with emotions and moving on to the body. With breathing and sound as part of the package, the meditator creates a sense of well-being and compassion that is ideally carried over mindfully into everyday activities. The accelerated pupil can move on to more complex Buddhist imagery, but no matter how far you go, trusting the healing power of the mind is the first step. --Brian Bruya

From Publishers Weekly

More than just another introduction to meditation, Thondup's book is a rich survey of the healing resources inherent in Nyingma Buddhism, the oldest school of Buddhism in Tibet, offered by one of the truly distinguished exemplars of the ancient monastic tradition rapidly being extinguished by the Chinese occupation of Tibet. Consequently, much of the text rings with a clarity and potent energy sedom found elsewhere among texts on Tibetan Buddhism. In Thondup's view, meditation is not merely a useful way of finding peace of mind and being centered, it is also an important path to healing both mind and body. In simple language, Thondup presents an ancient transformative approach to the true nature of the mind and the sources of suffering. The uncomplicated exercises and insights he presents provide an important link between body and mind that strengthens the immune system and reinforces the health of the student. Thondup's book is a rare and invaluable guide to an ancient Tibetan treasure.

Good for both the newcomer and the experienced reader of buddhism. I have read this book three times, and every time is a new experience that creates an amazing aura of mindful positivity.
It is not a book of religion but it is the book about positivity.
I would reccomend it for everyone.
It has changed my life.

A must read for everyone. No matter what your faith, this is a no-nonsense form of empowering ourselves. This is the kind of book that should be on all our public school reading lists, and taught in our schools.

This is one of the single best books I've seen for mind, body and spirit. Clear and concise, it exudes kindness, gentleness, and love. And it has greatly helped me and many people I know in dealing with every aspect of life.

I love this book. It brings the wisdom of Tibetan Buddhism into everyday life--whether you call yourself a Buddhist or not. It shows how you can use healing attitudes and imagery. Simple, nondogmatic, loving, and practical.

The book is about exacting what the title says; but rather than Norman Vincent van Peale sort of stuff, it gives you practical exercises based on experience from one who knows about the need for healing. As with many Tibetan expatriates, it hasn't been all roses on the outside moving to the west for the author Tulku Thondup. But, fortunately for him (and us) he got training in "The Healing Power of Mind" from an early age, so that it was imprinted in his being for application to all situations. I highly recommend this book for those who are seeking a better frame of mind life. Thondup is deliberately non-religious so as to be of service to all Westerners, no matter what their demonination (or not). This book is a powerful tool, and if you like the label, is a powerful tool of theCognitive Behavioral approach from a a different angle.... an angle that has experienced both the need for healing and the application of healing transformation protocols for everyday life.

Simple, step-by-step help with meditation practice even for people who have meditated for years. Tulku Thondup teaches the power of the mind and spirit to heal in a way that is logical and believable . He helped me step outside of my personal pain to "see' the energy of my spirit as a natural power. My practice is greatly changed by this wise teacher.
