Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Borysenko, co-founder and director of the Mind/Body Clinic at New England Deaconess Hospital/Harvard Medical School, describes the clinic's ten-week program for learning to ``mind the body'' through a medical synthesis of neurology, immunology, and psychology. She provides step-by-step instructions to the clinic's techniques while suggesting how they can be adapted for individual use. Combining meditation, breath control and stretching exercises, and mindfulness, and drawn from work with patients aged 17 to 93, these techniques help ease the stress of illnessparticularly illness caused by stressby exploiting the body's natural capacity for healing. Readers who master them can achieve an admirable balance between inner self and environment. Jodith Janes, Univ. Hospitals of Cleveland

    a good subtitle would be "thinking outside the box and the mind"

    This book is really saying nothing new but it is said in a new way and it has helped me and others that I have given it to.. common response from my friends was why did I not read this sooner.. it answers so much.. the bottom line is that it helps with your attitude and the ability to deal with life.. definately a thumbs up book... very glad I purchased it and it is a much easier read than the title might lead you to believe..

    Strongly recommended

    With all due respect, ignore the Psychology Today review and buy this book. It is a gift to people who have exhausted the limitations of Western medicine and simply want to be healed.
