In Contemplative Healing, author Francis Geddes describes healing prayer's importance and recommends congregations renew this ancient Christian practice. Geddes presents an overview of Christian healing for the church and beyond. It addresses society's need for loving connection with one another and the source of our being within a broad Christian context. Contemplative Healing demonstrates the following essential points: Everyone can be a healer Science and healing need not be at odds. Jesus introduced healing as a transforming spiritual practice. Healing is grounded in love. Contemplative Healing communicates how the loving spirit of God and Christ function in a community by alleviating pain and bringing wholeness. Praise for CONTEMPLATIVE HEALING This book's treatment of healing as a spiritual and Christian practice is important for Christians and the church in our time. It creates a framework for seeing healing within the practice of Jesus and early Christianity, attends to the relationship between healing and contemporary medical science, and describes how to introduce the practice of healing into local congregations.

God has healed in the past and wants to heal now. But though they pray in faith, go to healing meetings, and strive to have enough faith, many are not healed as they would wish to be. When God Doesn't Heal Now examines the myths about healing that are built on partial truths and looks at the profound relationship between prayer, healing, and the sovereignty of God. This guide offers a balanced look at teachings on healing, faith healers, and ways to bring biblical clarity to beliefs that often foster guilt, defeat, and despair when believers are not immediately healed. When God Doesn't Heal Now is an encouraging book which affirms the biblical truth that God is our healer.

“By the study, experimentation and practice of natural healing, women are changing and charting the future of health care. Despite heavy resistance or lack of recognition from patriarchal medicine, they are nevertheless making positive changes that will continue and increase. Women’s emphasis on one-to-one work practiced in mutual agreement and participation is very different from mechanized and big-money medicine, and has results and successes far beyond expectations. The emphasis on self-healing returns health care to the consumer, to women’s lives and bodies, for the first time in centuries. The medical system cannot control a movement held in the hands of women, though it may try. Women are taking control again of healing, our daughter-right, for the first time since the matriarchies and the Inquisition.”—from the Introduction From the Trade Paperback edition.

Many books have appeared that argue at the ends of the Christian spectrum on the reality of God. On the left there are such books as, God Is Not Great (Christopher Hitchens) arguing that a god and religion are not needed in todays world, and at the far right Fundamentalists push books which speak of near term disasters to non-believers of God, The Rapture and The Second Coming of Jesus (Finis Dake). Compounding the agitation on sides has been the religious bias of the Bush Administration which has push religious ideology into positions in the government at the federal level with power to diminish sciences contribution to our country and at the state level to lower the standards for science education of students. Outraged scientists fear the future of a country where of the population believe in angels and only one-quarter believe that our ancestors were ape-like. Darwin is now both a science hero and an enemy to the religious. Embattled religious fundamentalists fear that modernity is changing the country into a secular materialistic nation and push to convert the country into a Christian nation. Heightened activity from both sides to attract converts has only increase the conflicts. Neither of these extremes addresses the question of how to bring all three parties, all needed in the future, together to reduce conflicts. Understanding the profound and interlinked changes to religion, science and governance forged by modernity is necessary to support a solution to the conflicts of religion with science and democracy today. Jeffersons Scissors presents a path to a solution to the conflicts by defining acceptable roles for religion and science in our secular democracy by employing a common link between religion, science and democracy that can bring citizens together even with a wide diversity of beliefs. The insight into a solution to the conflicts was first evolved by Thomas Jefferson during his personal search for his own philosophy.

Healing with Herbs and Rituals is an herbal remedy-based understanding of curanderismo and the practice of yerberas, or herbalists, as found in the American Southwest and northern Mexico. Part One, "Folk Healers and Folk Healing," focuses on individual healers and their procedures. Part Two, "Green Medicine: Traditional Mexican-American Herbs and Remedies," details traditional Mexican-American herbs and cures. These remedies are the product of centuries of experience in Mexico, heavily influenced by the Moors, Judeo-Christians, and Aztecs, and include everyday items such as lemon, egg, fire, aromatic oil, and prepared water. Symbolic objects such as keys, candles, brooms, and Trouble Dolls are also used. Dedicated, in part, to curanderos throughout Mexico and the American Southwest, Healing with Herbs and Rituals shows us these practitioners are humble, sincere people who have given themselves to improving lives for many decades. Today's holistic health movement has rediscovered the timeless merits of the curanderos' uses of medicinal plants, rituals, and practical advice.

Healing Insanity: A Study of Igbo Medicine in Contemporary Nigeria is an original and in-depth study on endogenous medical system in an African society. It is craftily written and provides solid insight, through case studies and theory, into how insanity affects patients and the society. Particularly, it explores various collective representations and strategies regarding insanity and healing as it examines the healing institutions, healers, and ritual cults. The central question is, given the patterns of healing, how do the Igbo shape the incidence and symptoms of insanity, define its aetiology, and provide healers with culture-specific resources and skills to address this illness? The focus became increasingly centred on bodily semantics and endogenous knowledge systems and practices. Dr. Patrick Iroegbu's work is a very valuable and rare study and has appeared at a desirable time. It is, for an African society, a comprehensive study of the many ways Igbo people, in their practical, routinelike attitudes and body-centred experiences, as well as in their more reflective aetiologic knowledge and healing institutions, relate to the phenomenon of insanity, or ara, in the cultural parlance. As the first of its kind, reminiscent of, and assured by, the various remarks of Igbo scholars and leaders at various meetings and discourses, the task this work has set out to accomplish is a very brave one. The author's account of his fieldwork experiences and adopted techniques illustrates his initiation, revealing him as a genuine ethnographer who is a "friend of people and at ease with his field." With both the far-seeing and inspiring analysis of Igbo medicine, life, and culture accounted for in the work, the book stands out for ethnographers, teachers, students, leaders, policymakers, and the general public. This is a book that deserves to be read as it shapes the critical path toward understanding ways of healing insanity in a culture-specific context, crosscutting perspectives for a relationship between indigenous healing and the biomedical sphere. Prof. René Devisch (Africa Research Centre, University of Leuven) This book is written with a clear purpose for everyone to read to understand and heal insanity and indeed provides a thick piece of cultural philosophy and vernacular of Igbo medicine in hopes of putting cultural wisdom in pursuit of integral health care development. Prof. Pantaleon Iroegbu (Professor of Philosophy, Major-Seminary, Ekpoma, January 2006) To read this book, as I did, is to get the benefit of Dr. Patrick Iroegbu's ethnographic insight for an archetypical African healing system in Igboland. It offers a fascinating theory of symbolic release that speaks of African symbolic action and knowledge system. Dr. Paul Komba, Esq. (University of Cambridge)

Women are naturally healers. Throughout time, they have performed curative roles as mothers, midwives, caregivers, and wisewomen, but modern medicine has suppressed this important tradition. Ancient women healers knew that the body is more than what is seen: through body, emotions, mind, and spirit, we can connect with the Goddess and actively choose to heal ourselves and others. By relearning and using ancient skills like aura and chakra work, creative visualization, meditation, laying on of hands, psychic healing, and working with crystals and gemstones, women can prevent or transform many dis-eases of the body and spirit before they become matters for modern medicine. In THE WOMEN'¬?S BOOK OF HEALING, Diane Stein, author of the best-selling ESSENTIAL REIKI, demystifies, explains, and teaches these skills in ways that modern women can learn and use. She first introduces basic healing, then applies those skills to healing with crystals and gemstones-a beautiful, effective, and empowering aspect of the ancient woman'¬?s healing methods. A comprehensive guide from a knowledgeable healer, THE WOMEN'¬?S BOOK OF HEALING proves that well-being is within a woman'¬?s choice and natural abilities, and reaffirms her timeless role as healer of herself and others. An affirmation of woman'¬?s traditional role as healer, speaking to a national trend toward alternative medicine and natural healing methods. Demystifies, explains, and teaches the healing capabilities of auras, chakras, laying on of hands, crystals, gemstones, and colors. Thoroughly revised and updated, with a new introduction.
