Why People Don't Heal and How They Can
For more than fifteen years, Caroline Myss has studied why some people heal, while others do not. In her previous book, Anatomy of the Spirit, Dr. Myss illuminated the hidden interactions of belief and body, soul and cell to show how, as she inimitably puts it, "your biography becomes your biology." In this new book, she builds on her earlier teachings of the seven different energy centers of the body to provide a vital self-healing program for physical and spiritual disorders. With her characteristic no-nonsense style and high-voltage storytelling, she exposes and explodes the five myths about healing, explains the cultural and individual contexts...

BOOK EXCERPT - Friends, Allies - To the End
In The Sacred Body , Dr. Mavis Himes describes the Wellspring sessions with the women in her metastatic cancer group.
Within the white brick walls of Wellspring, a healing community amid the downtown cultural maze of Toronto, women unbutton coats and sweaters in slow motion and help themselves to Red Zinger tea or spring water. In spite of the varied collage of head gear and fashion, light-skinned blondes and dark-skinned brunettes, the thwarted energy of the young and the shuffle of the old, there exists a bond - palpable, kinetic.
The common denominator is the lesion - the tumour, the glioblastoma multiforme, the large-cell carcinoma, the fibrosarcoma, the primitive neuroectodermal tumour, the dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, the endodermal sinus tumour, the dysgerminoma, the immature teratoma - the altered gene that transmits the wrong message, that begins to grow rapidly and multiplies again and again, until it forms a malignant growth. Cancer. The Big C.

Wellspring sighs and heaves with the voices of its members. I enter the living room and my pulse slows. The low lighting acts as a sedative.
