    Product Description

    According to Joan Borysenko, healing is really the simplest of matters. We heal by becoming truly ourselves, by discovering our wholeness.

    The process of healing is one of self-realization. It is a peeling away from the fears, concepts and negativity that obscure the light of our own true nature and its innate essence of compassion, creativity, wisdom and love. As negativity is transformed, the physical body often heals as well.

    Life is an exacting teacher, constantly challenging you to transcend your fears and find your essence. Broken relationships, shattered faith and death itself invite you to find an inner wellspring of strength and understanding—a living spirituality. In the process, you recognize that your growth contributes to the growth of all beings—that healing is a powerful act of service for the world.

    Drawn both from modern psychology and the great spiritual traditions of the world, The Power of the Mind to Heal is an audio cassette guide that presents transformative methods of overcoming negative patterns and finding the higher self. You will participate in thought provoking exercises and guided meditations that provide a path for emotional healing and daily spiritual practice.

    Listen as Dr. Borysenko teaches you to:
    Gain greater inner peace through insight into the meaning of your experiences.
    Develop a spiritual framework that can transform your life and relationships.
    Understand your ego and the way it creates fear. Learn to overcome fear and experience the peace, wisdom, joy and love of your own true nature, your higher self.
    Liberate yourself from feelings of guilt, blame and remorse.
    Develop a philosophy of compassion and forgiveness—for others and yourself.
    Develop a daily practice of meditation and prayer that will strengthen your conscious connection to the Divine.
    Listen to this program and you will be delighted, inspired, instructed and uplifted. Work with this program and you can help heal obstructing emotional patterns.
    Commit to a practice of mindfulness, meditation and prayer and you can heal not only your own soul, but become a healing influence on others as well.

    About the Author


    How did a Harvard trained medical scientist become a mystic? In reality, it was the other way around. At the age of 10, Joan experienced 6 months of an alternate reality, what modern psychiatry would label psychosis and obsessive compulsive disorder. One day, while praying fervently for help, all fear and confusion parted to reveal a luminous reality of exquisite love, surpassing peace, and practical wisdom that guided her to an almost instantaneous recovery. Her journey to hell and back birthed a lifelong fascination with healing, the roots of consciousness, and the realm of Spirit. Weaving together biology, psychology, and spirituality in a credible, accessible way is her soul's purpose.

    Joan's doctorate is from the Harvard Medical School where she subsequently completed postdoctoral fellowships in cancer cell biology, psychoneuroimmunology, and behavioral medicine. In 1987, her New Times bestseller, Minding the Body, Mending the Mind (revised in 2007 for its 20 year anniversary edition) described the program of mental and physical healing that she and her colleagues pioneered at a leading Boston hospital. She has authored or co-authored a dozen other books about healing, inner peace, and the spiritual journey, along with numerous audio programs and guided meditation CD's. Joan is also a licensed psychologist, a journalist, a renowned inspirational speaker, and a television personality.

    Her lifelong interest in mysticism and the world's religions culminated in co-founding The Claritas (Latin for clarity and illumination) Institute for Interspiritual Inquiry with her husband, organizational psychologist Gordon Dveirin, Ed.D. The Institute has programs to train spiritual mentors, offers spiritual guidance to individuals and corporations, and hosts seminars and retreats. Joan and Gordon's new book, Your Soul's Compass: What is Spiritual Guidance? reveals how we can co-operate with the living field of possibilities to align with the emerging good in any situation.
