Patience and Sports Medicine

The other day I worked with a young man who is a highschool wrestler. He had injured his back last summer doing a lifting job. He had also sprained his ankle during a wrestling practice. Although he was in a great deal of pain during his practices and matches, the last thing that he wanted […]

Cancer and Natural Medicine: A Textbook of Basic Science and Clinical Research

In the preface of this book, the author, John Boik, states that he had written the book because he had looked for a book like it and it did not exist. I know of no other book like it, because it has undertaken to critically describe what we know scientifically about the uses of natural […]

Alternative Healthcare A Comprehensive Guide

This book was somewhat of a shock to me because the title is so misleading. Instead of “Alternative” Healthcare: A Comprehensive Guide, it should be titled the Skeptics Guide to Alternative Healthcare. The author, Jack Raso,states his position very clearly in the introduction: “Since I began studying mystical healing in 1989, I have reached four […]

With Eyes to See: A Journey from Religion to Spirituality

The Right Use of Will

I would like to introduce you to an extraordinary series of books by Ceanne DeRohan. First, note, that these books are channeled, yet are remarkably consistent in their style and message. I find them equally as insightful and challenging as A Course In Miracles. The following quotation will give you a feel for the style […]

Death of the American Soul: Reclaiming Our Lives and Finding Purpose

I don’t know where I have been these past twenty years – perhaps having worked for small, health conscious, non-profits has isolated me from what is happening to the souls of the majority of Americans – Americans who are forced to wake up well in advance of their own biological clock, who drive maniacally, fighting […]

Nine Faces of Christ: Quest of the True Initiate

This re-publication of Nine Faces of Christ: Quest of the True Initiate, first published in India in 1972 is being reviewed because of the applicability of the contents to all of us. This is not the literal story of the historical Christ, it takes place in 57BC, although it could easily be. It is the […]

The Spirit of the Place: Thoughts from My Walk in the Wild

“Place has a deeply spiritual significance because place is not only physical but is also a subtle energetic milieu that [surrounds] a particular land area. This energetic milieu is the source of the particular kinds of plants and animals to have emerged and lived in that place. …each earthly place has its own creative force […]

Home is Where the Healing is

The healing environment and quality of health care varies from institution to institution and home to home.
