For Diane Goldner, what began as an investigative story for The New York Times, became a four-year pilgrimage into the thriving yet controversial world of energy healing in America. Her report, How People Heal, serves as both an introduction to this world, and an engrossing narrative featuring in-depth portraits of healers Barbara Brennan and Rosalyn Bruyere. Goldner spent hours alongside these spiritual and savvy women witnessing their healing work, while casting a critical eye at the business side of their organizations.
How People Heal also introduces you to physicists mapping the effects of love and desire across time and space, nurses using therapeutic touch on hospital patients, and heart surgeons using energy medicine in the operating room. Most important, you’ll meet Jonathan Kramer, Doris Dennard, Marilyn Schneider, and others like them, whose lives and life-threatening illnesses have been transformed by the work of energy healers.
How People Heal is the trade paper edition of the 1999 hardcover Infinite Grace: Where the Worlds of Science and Spiritual Healing Meet.
How People Heal takes you inside:
- schools and institutions training energy healers
- traditional hospitals and clinics integrating energy medicine into everyday practice
- labs measuring the effects of energy and consciousness on healing
- the hearts and minds of patients choosing to work with energy healers instead of conventional therapy
