Set against the background of a general inquiry into the whole process of healing and the part played by the relationship of the mind to the body this is the account of the author's twelve day trip to the Casa De Dom Inacio in Abadiania, Brazil. This is the place where John Of God carries out spiritual headings.
He is here seeking the answers to many questions and approaches events with an open mind. The whole adventure is vividly brought to life as we are introduced to other members of the group and become involved in their problems too.Throughout the narrative there is a wider discussion of healing and healthy living in general.
By the end of his story he has witnessed many inexplicable events and emphasises the importance of faith and belief. "it is not the faith of the healer that creates a miracle. it's the faith of the patient that a miracle can occur that does it.".
I found this to be a very powerful read and I have returned to it several times as it has helped me to rethink my own beliefs and overcome some doubts.
I highly recommend if to anyone who is interested in matters spiritual or in healing and healthy living. The inspirational message is invaluable to all.
of the need to re-examine our current health care system based on and still dominated by allopathy. We really, really,
really, really need to do that. And I think a growing number of people are on board with that one. Allopathy and it's dominance and bromance with Big Pharma is contributing to declining health and even, killing us.
ON the other hand, there are lots and lots of highly accessible physical (and spiritual) choices available
for better healing. Choices with excellent track records and testimonials behind them, not merely corporate money,
as allopathy aka conventional medicine, has behind it.
Traveling to Brazil may be interesting and even necessary to some, and I am glad this resource is with us, but it's not like there is a polarization- allopathy on one end, the this sole type of resource on the other end.
This book seems to be to be, as one reviewer pointed out, more about the author's own personal journey with skepticism
and that's ok. It is instructive for the reader to see him go through his process. There is a lot of interest here to ponder. I am sure there is a whole strata of people who would share his ingoing beliefs.
That said, I don't think the book lives up to the trumped up and smokin' hot review released by it's publisher. It would be difficult to really assess the activity of the Casa de Dom Inacio based on one visit. The author and also readers might find it interesting to know and look into Machaelle Small Wright's 'MAP' work (originating nearly 40 years ago), as well as know that within spiritual healing all over the world, there are often "helpers" of a spiritual nature. And that maybe, "sacred soup" is just a nice way to get folks to eat well and not eat so much junk while on their visits? And that scientist Masuro Emoto has researched , as has U of C, Berkeley , that water and other fluids can be demonstrably and measurably changed by sending good energy ("blessing"). And that waterfalls are following the basic laws of physics- hydrotherapy. So there is really not a lot for all of us to "get over", but there was for the author, apparently. All in all recommended, but the report has to do better to become a genuine 5 star book.
