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

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.
The journey is not quick but the supportive style Sandra provides gives the means to keep working at it daily, even every moment of your life.
It is a treasure. I thank her for writing it.
