Frequently Bought Together
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

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.
Michael P. Marcotte, M.D. Assistant Professor Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology Medical College of Ohio
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.
Just this morning I finished reading your book Healing Words for the Body, Mind and Spirit. I found your words timely and essential reading in my own life because I’ve recently had a direct confrontation with my own mortality. After 18 months of intense work to create the foundation for the Charter for Compassion International, I made a whirlwind trip to Karachi, Pakistan and London, UK for meetings and speaking engagements. Along the way I struggled with an intense attack of gout on my left foot, and then what appeared to be a very dangerous deep-tissue staph infection along with much pain and swelling. Just one week ago today I was admitted to the hospital to spend a few days on an IV antibiotic drip. Now I am at home, recovering very nicely and reflecting on the healing that I need to allow my body and my spirit to relax into. Your book has been instrumental in helping me embrace the poetry of my life, and to begin to show myself some of the compassion I want so much to bring to life in the world at large through the Charter for Compassion. Thank you so much for writing it.
