I have scanned a friend's copy of this book, and must buy my own. The imagery scripts are detailed, but simple to use on your own with practice. The book contains a comprehensive section on the immune system, which I found very helpful. We all are learning that the mind-body connection is where healing truly takes place. This book helps you find that place within yourself and walks you down a path of self-discovery.

My 10 year old grandson has leukemia and is currently hospitalized for it. I used this book to help him visualize his immune system and create a healing experience. I haven't found much out there that is actually written for kids (this book is also a guide for adults), but it's easy to adapt what there is in this book to fit your child's situation with a just a little effort and imagination. I found the examples very encouraging and helpful as well. Following the examples of paintings and drawings found in the book...I think this helped him feel more in control over the disease.

I appreciated this book so much that after checking it out from the library I decided to buy it. It describes the ritual process step-by-step, and offers great guided imagery scripts. I believe there is a strong connection between the body and the mind, and this book affirms it.

Since this classic book was written I have lent many copies to friends who need to develop their own rituals when undergoing surgery or serious illness. As a former visiting nurse, I appreciate the author's grounding in the science of medicine and their spiritual grounding in holistic traditions individuals can adapt to suit their needs. Ten years ago when I had 16 months of chemo for stage 3-C ovarian cancer, the appendix on the immune system inspired me to create my own imaging rituals inviting my body to cooperate with chemo. I'm still here, grateful, happy to share this book, and keep two copies on hand. It is well organized into body systems, clearly written, a treasure health of and wellness practices for individuals and communities.

Excellent resource. I am a holistic practitioner working with clients in various stages of wellness and some in hospice. I keep a copy on hand to lend or give to friends, relatives, clients who are (or are close to someone who is) preparing for surgery, recovering from injuries or illness, dealing with health issues, or in the process of dying.
