Description

A unique approach to psycho-oncology In his first book, The Healing Journey, Alastair Cunningham provided a comprehensive discussion of what people with cancer can do to help themselves. Published in 1992, the book carefully balanced the conservatism of modern Western medicine and the radical perspective of New Age thinking. Cunningham's latest work represents the next step in the healing journey. Bringing Spirituality into Your Healing Journey helps readers achieve a strong connection to a state of mind that may actually aid in the healing of the body. It does this by providing a series of exercises and techniques to aid in relaxation, focus, meditation, forgiveness, and self-acceptance. In clear, concise language, Cunningham describes a technique and then presents extracts from patients who have used it?making the book both a powerful self-help guide, and a compendium of shared experiences. The spiritual road to healing may not be for everyone. For those willing to open their minds, Bringing Spirituality into Your Healing Journey is an essential guide. Dr. Alastair J. Cunningham is a cancer survivor and a senior scientist at the Ontario Cancer Institute, one of North America's largest cancer research and treatment facilities. He is also Professor of Medical Biophysics at the University of Toronto, clinical co-director of the Wellspring Centre, and a member of the Institute for the Advancement of Health and the Society for Behavioural Medicine. He has Ph.D. degrees in both cell biology and psychology, and more than 35 years of experience in cancer-related research. (March, 2002)
