Larry Dossey, MD – Healing Words – HarperOne
If you worry about the empirical science behind prayer and Healing, because you feel the need to prove to narrow-minded reductionists that this stuff WORKS, beyond what you already know because you have seen it work with your own eyes and done it with your own hands, then by all means read this book. Read it, memorise it, and spout the figures and double-blind, gold-standard reproduceable tests, that prove scientifically what you knew all along, because for some people, your experience and your word are not good enough. They need it on paper, because if it’s not printed on paper then it has no validity.
Jam-packed with case study after case study of “miracle” cures, ruminating the possible role of quantum mechanics in Healing and prayer, this is a roll-call of men in white coats with clip-boards scratching their heads over inexplicable cures that somehow defy current scientific “fact”. What this book doesn’t tell you is how to do the healing, which Healing Words to actually use. It’s hinted at, skirted around and vaguely suggested in the most woolly terms. But no actual words, as such.
If you’re looking for a real manual on Healing, read Barbara Brennan’s Hands of Light.
