    Inspirational Healing Stories!

    Anyone who desires their heart and soul uplifted to a whole new high will enjoy the Heart of Healing. It's a beautifully written compilation by today's leading inspirational authors. Each practitioner imparts the gems of wisdom from the perspective of their modality, providing a wealth of healing practices and practical wisdom. This is a heartfelt and compelling collection that opened me up to many new possibilities of healing. You can read one brief chapter at a time, so it's an easy read. I found myself ensconced in an atmosphere of healing whenever I picked up the book it touched me deeply and warmly like the comfort of a good friend.

    Midwest Book Review November 2004

    Compiled, organized and edited by Dawson Church, The Heart of Healing is an anthology of essays from a vast selection of authors discussing alternative paths to inner healing...from reclaiming the soul, to the fruit of sexuality, to ancient healing approaches seen in a new light, and predictions as to the future of medicine. The thirty-one contributions combine into a profound and eclectic compendium offering over five hundred years of combined experience, and voices that dare to offer new perspectives into society¿s concept of health. Especially recommended reading for those seeking supplements to modern medical care, or insight into avenues beyond the mundane.
