"[Jenny Mannion's] system is proven, precise, and compelling. A must for seekers of true change."—Cyndi Dale, author of The Complete Book of Chakra Healing and Llewellyn's Complete Book of Chakras

"Jenny Mannion's book, A Short Path to Change, is immensely empowering and will help you reach a mind-body connection beyond what you dreamed possible. I highly recommend this book!"—Dr. Steve G. Jones, Clinical Hypnotherapist

"Medical intuitive and healer Mannion, who claims to have cured her own long-term chronic illness in three weeks, offers a program aimed at helping readers do the same. Step by step, Mannion explains her healing and empowering techniques. She suggests a variety of helpful processes: forgiveness and attention shifting, energy healing and affirmations, and ways to strengthen the chakras. Even absent a chronic illness, Mannion writes, discovering and strengthening "inner power"—she explains this as the connection between mind and body—is a form of healing. She says that by following her instructions, readers can first change thought patterns and then become a partner to the body's healing mechanisms. This book will appeal to those who may be frustrated with traditional medical avenues and are ready to explore alternative ways of healing themselves."—Publishers Weekly
