    A Fascinating and Compelling Read

    William Bengston, PhD has written a very valuable and important book that challenges us all to embrace the full spectrum of healing. THE ENERGY CURE: UNRAVELING THE MYSTERY OF HANDS-ON HEALING introduces us to those aspects of non-Western medicine that too often are dismissed as hokey magic or mind twisting ideas practiced by a segregated sect of would be Medicine Men. But in part thanks to books such as Dr. Bengston's and those by other authors who practice Holistic medicine, acknowledging the fact that our bodies are part of the energy of the universe and that as such can be altered by acting on that flow of energy to foster cures or improvements in physical ailments is a gift the author shares here. We have yet to understand the power of the human brain and the capabilities of concentrated thought and participation in the energy fields that surround us, are within us, and ARE us. Few readers will come away form Bengston's book with skepticism about his message - provided they have minds open to the possibilities we, to now, have ignored. Bengston is obsessed with providing proof of his observations and abilities. His initial exposure to this new realm of attending to human ailments came in 1971 when he met and subsequently worked with Bennett Mayrick, a man able to perform psychic readings and hands on healing. Bengston then struck out on his own and worked in research to justify the credibility of such phenomena, parting way with Mayrick, and finally returning after an absence to his studies and discovering his own abilities to perform and to teach energy healing. The manner in which he leads the reader through this maze of recognition and understanding and examining the proof and then sharing the abilities he discovered is the bulk of this book. If there is a criticism of this book it is the overly long portions that discuss the author's academic journey. He writes very well and one at times wishes he would have edited this initial manuscript to reduce the 'filler' that at times keeps the flow of the coming to understanding and accepting of his ideas and history. But Bengston is obviously a humanist and doubtless fells that his readers should have the benefit of all of his scientific proof to assure that his précis is strongly supported. Indeed, he ends his book (before the very helpful appendices) with the following: 'My hope is that all those who read this book take from it an expanded sense of the resources offered by the Universe, along with a greater awareness of their own potential in calling upon that abundance, not only for healing, but for all aspects of life. The possibilities are infinite. The limitations are our own. Not faith, not belief, but trust.' Grady Harp

    Excellent book on energy healing. Entirely plausible & credible!

    I enjoyed this book so much, and found the authors story and methodology so credible that I purchased a 2nd copy to give to someone very dear who was dying. The crux of the book is the story of how William Bengston met Bennett Myrick, and became friends after challenging Myrick to prove his professed abilities to Bengsten. Doing just that, Bengsten set almost everything else aside to learn as much as he could from Myrick. In the process, Myrick continued to learn and hone and increase his abilites - which are fascinating. Myrick is interesting - an odd duck, but that just adds to the story. Bengsten so excited by what he learned from Myrick, set out to prove, not only that healing is possible, but that anyone - even the most skeptical of the skeptics can learn this method. Bengsten, a sociology professor at St Joseph's College in NY, made use of the students at St Jos. to find the most skeptical, and teach them. They all were able to learn the methods and perform healings. During the story Bengsten and Myrick parted ways, but Bengsten devoted 35 years to developing, teaching, and trying to prove the methodology, which isn't completely unlike other methods of energy healing. What I most appreciated was that the entire appendices werre devoted to explaining the Energy Cure - how to learn and perform healings. This book is a quick read, and well worth the very reasonable cost. Highly recommended!
