THE ART OF HEALING

Uncovering Your Inner Wisdom and Potential for Self-Healing

In these pages, renowned medical doctor and spiritual teacher Bernie Siegel demonstrates how science and spirituality interact — and how you can tap your body’s potential to heal. After studying the use of crayon drawings by patients facing life-threatening disease, Bernie founded Exceptional Cancer Patients to facilitate self-induced healings, which were often called miraculous. Bernie realized our bodies actually want to heal, and we can aid this innate propensity through what are currently seen as unconventional practices, including drawing, visualization, dreams, love, and laughter. You’ll learn how to use these practices to help with everything from diagnosing and understanding your illness to making the correct treatment decisions to sharing your experience with loved ones and caregivers. Filled with inspiring true stories and suggestions for traveling your own healing journey, this book offers hands-on, patient-proven techniques that can create miracles.

“A beautiful guidebook of truth and wisdom written by a genuine healer-sage. Bernie Siegel has given us a masterpiece.”
Caroline Myss, author of Anatomy of the Spirit and Sacred Contracts

“When we combine the art of healing with the science of curing, modern medicine becomes whole. Thanks, Bernie, for showing the way.”
Larry Dossey, MD, author of One Mind

“We are grateful these days to find a physician who understands the difference between practicing medicine and healing, who values the role of the human psyche in both its pathologizing and healing forms. Dr. Siegel’s Art of Healing is aptly named, for healing is an art, and healing encompasses the whole person through respecting the dynamic power of the psyche to harm or heal any of us.”
James Hollis, PhD, Jungian analyst and author of What Matters Most
