Overview

In an era when healing has become of increasingly vital concern, The Nature of Healing explores this subject from the perspective of a variety of cultures, traditions and sciences to offer a powerful perspective on health and healing, disability and disease, doctors and doctoring, Eastern and Western medical theories and treatments, and the final step in the healing process — consciously confronting the inevitability of death. The primary focus of The Nature of Healing is on the transformative nature of disease and the metaphorical dimension of healing. Contributors include Norman Cousins, C.G.Jung, Bill Wilson, Thich Nhat Hanh and many others.
