After a shattering near-death experience, Joyce Whiteley Hawkes left her career as a biophysicist and embarked on a study of indigenous healing practices.

Living and working with priests and shamans in the Philippines, South India, and Bali, she explored the previously uncharted territories that divide biology from spirituality -- and discovered that emotional, mental, and spiritual feelings can have a profound and positive impact on our bodies at the cellular level.

Cell-Level Healing shows how our thoughts change the functioning of our cells to repair and renew the body. With profound yet simple exercises, this book provides a guide to tap your innate healing abilities by showing that healing is a basic part of human nature.

Filled with thought-provoking stories and photographs, free of jargon, and thoroughly grounded in Dr. Hawkes's decades of experience in laboratory science and practical, hands-on healing, Cell-Level Healing invites you to explore your intrinsic powers of transformation and regeneration to attain new levels of spiritual and bodily health.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
If the body's energy level can be compared to a savings account, then we could all use some sound advice for building and maintaining a healthy balance. Fortunately, two new books are appropriate for responsible energy investors and spendthrifts alike. After a near-death experience, biophysicist Hawkes peered into her microscope with the new awareness that healing begins, as illness does, at the cellular level. In Cell-Level Healing, she offers lucid explanations of energy flow and basic cellular biology, guiding readers through exercises in body awareness, the identification and clearing of blockages, and the application of cell-level healing to specific conditions. One of her most profound insights is that the human body at the cellular level mirrors the cosmos in its endless cycles of creation and destruction. In addition to charts on color attributes, cell structure, and traditional energy centers, this book also includes photographic visualization and meditation aids. Healer and spiritual counselor Hansen presents a broader (or at least less microscopic) perspective by addressing nutrition, sleep, exercise, and bodywork. Her clear meditation instructions and thoughtful discussions of various spiritual principles, such as forgiveness and gratitude, make her book especially useful to readers who may be new to self-healing. The chapter on releasing limitations introduces effective strategies for overcoming self-hatred and the need for external validation. A CD-ROM of audio meditations (not heard) provides further guidance to readers. Both titles are recommended for large public and consumer health libraries, but smaller libraries with the funds for only one would be better served by Hansen's book, which recalls the works of Judith Orloff.-Blanche Angelo, Oakland P.L., CA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
From the Publisher
"Cell-Level Healing is a remarkable bridge between conventional cell biology and the far reaches of self and spiritual healing. Dr. Hawkes skillfully combines her solid scientific grounding and experience in mainstream biophysics with personal insights gained from a near-death experience and extensive training in the alternative healing arts. Hawkes beautifully demonstrates how science and spirituality can peacefully coexist and inform each other in beneficial and refreshing ways."
—Dean Radin, PhD, senior scientist, Institute of Noetic Sciences

"Cell-Level Healing is quite simply the whole exciting truth about how and why our consciousness is key to our physical health and well-being."
—Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Mother-Daughter Wisdom, The Wisdom of Menopause, and Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom

"Cell-Level Healing is a remarkable book. It provides the reader with a poetic and visual text on self-healing and demonstrates how science and spirituality need not be opponents but can serve as allies in the reader's transformation. Dr. Joyce Hawkes has created a delightful user-friendly volume that can be read, savored, and re-read—one that is both simple and profound."
—Stanley Krippner, PhD, Saybrook Graduate School and Research Center, co-editor of Varieties of Anomalous Experience and author of Extraordinary Dreams and How to Work with Them

“Science and spirit are brought together with beauty and discernment in this exquisite book. Joyce Hawkes offers us a vision of healing that truly manages to bridge worlds which only remain separate at our peril. ‘The Bridge from Soul to Cell’ is more than a good metaphor: it links wisdom and science and by doing so opens the way for great healing.”
—James O’Dea, president of the Institute of Noetic Sciences

Joyce Hawkes blends and makes whole our splintered perceptions of the roles of science and spirit in healing. Her beautiful vision of how cells house the very power of the universe, speaks to a greater understanding and the interconnectedness of the spiritual in the physical. In this broader understanding, Joyce bridges the gulf between the tangible and the intangible. She offers up the potential for self-healing, always waiting within us. Her book is both art and science for healing”
—JoanC. King, PhD, professor emeritus at Tufts University School of Medicine, author of the Cellular Wisdom series

“The intrinsic nature of our being is primordially pure, luminous awareness—and mindand body are the unified expression of that reality. Dr. Hawkes’s insightful work brings a depth of scientific knowledge together with the tools for applying that understanding in a way that relieves suffering and promotes spiritual awareness. Cell-Level Healing sheds welcome light on the interdependence of our inner and outer worlds. It provides practical guidance for working with the challenges of illness while supporting our journey of personal transformation.
—Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, founder and president of Nalandabodhi and Nitartha International, author of Wild Awakening
