Overview

"I didn't die because you said I didn't have to."

For years Dr. Bernie Siegel has been caring for seriously ill patients and their families. On this recording Dr. Siegel discusses the traits that his exceptional and successful clients have used to heal themselves and their lives.

In recounting these exceptional experiences in healing, Dr. Siegelshares his great belief in the power that hope can give patients and stresses the importance of medical caregivers and family sharing in the civilization of hope. Dr. Siegel, or Bernie as he prefers to be called, also encourages people to participate actively in their treatment and cure as many of his exceptional patients have done. An interest in healing, he explains, is an interest in living.

Included are Bernie's thoughts on the healing powers of love, the power of the subconscious mind, the necessity of patients finding a doctor's that's right for them, and the use of illness to learn about life, confront pain, and create the changes needed for healing. He also deals with the issues of guilt and failure that may arise in confronting these challenges.

With the aid of three exceptional patients, Siegel discusses 10 topics ranging from "I'm a person; I'm not my disease" to "Opening the door to your unconscious mind." Includes two special guided meditations with music. 2 cassettes. .

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Best-selling author Siegel discusses case studies of patients who have survived despite long odds. He shares his belief in the strength of hope and explains how medical caregivers and family members can help cultivate it. Siegel explains how Alexander Solzhenitsyn's Cancer Ward (1966) as well as ideas about self-induced miracles have influenced his work. He stresses that his successful patients were not denying their immortality; they did not set out not to die but rather to live. Some of the traits of exceptional patients, Siegel notes, are assertiveness, responsible participation, and religious conviction. Other topics he touches on are the healing power of love, the power of the subconscious mind, the importance of finding the right doctor, and how to use illness to confront pain, guilt, and failure. The author reads his text with calm assertiveness. Highly recommended for public libraries.-Ravonne A. Green, Emmanuel Coll. Lib., Franklin Springs, Ga.
