Hands of Light: A Guide to Healing Through the Human Energy Field, by Barbara Ann Brennan, is a scientist's look at the field of bioenergetic healing, offering specific techniques towards expanding perceptual tools of healing, seeing auras, understanding psychodynamics and the human energy field, and spiritual healing. Trained as a physicist and psychotherapist, Brennan has spent the last 15 years studying the human energy field and working as a healer. Hands of Light goes beyond conventional, objective knowledge while retaining scientific clarity. It details a study of the human energy field and how it is intimately connected to a person's health and well being and contains essential information for anyone involved in healing and conscious health care, including people seeking to heal themselves. Science and spirituality may currently be at odds, but fortunately there will always be scientists who are spiritual seekers, and it is in the mingling of the two worlds where wisdom is born. --Jodie Buller
"Barbara Brennan's work is mind-opening. Her concepts of the role disease plays and how healing is achieved certainly fit in with my experience."
-- Bernie S. Siegel, M.D., author of Love, Medicine, and Miracles

If you can see auras, though, I imagine this book will be very helpful. There are a lot of charts and diagrams that relate to auras and medical problems.
The most important thing that I did get was buried in the text near the end of the book: Having patience is a direct statement of faith in the Divine plan.
Other than the very good descriptions of the various levels of the human system, I found it particularly interesting that she describes the development of a human from birth (in fact, before birth) to adulthood. She talks about how the chakras develop and gives a fascinating perspective on very natural actions that children take, such as when they will nuzzle up to their parents.
Also, she talks about various "defense mechanisms" that we have, and describes the inter-personal interactions that these bring about with other people. Reflecting on these phenomena from the perspective of a play of energy was quite fascinating, I thought.
Overall, I would say that if you have any inclination to read something that will give you more insight into your physical/energetic/psychological/spiritual/combination-of-all-of-these makeup as a human being, give it a shot.
However, her personal journey was fascinating. Her eye for the minutest detail in the healing process was breath-taking. And the healing sessions she chronicles are almost unbelievable. To the skeptic's eye, some of this was fantastical. However unbelievable to it's critics, I do not doubt the efficacy of the techniques or the results described. I have seen this work.
I hold up the book and the author as an example of what is possible on my own private journey. The meditations given for practice are easy to follow and effective. I believe these were the most personally useful sections of the book.
Not an easy or casual read, but for those seeking knowledge of this old/new way of healing, this is helpful.
