Core Light Healingis the first book in twenty years from Barbara Brennan, founder of the Barbara Brennan School of Healing. A sequel to her two classic works, Hands of Lightand Light Emerging,it extends her beloved teaching to help readers learn to create the lives they long to live. In Part 1, Barbara reviews the configuration of the Human Energy-Consciousness System (HECS); then she goes on to describe the creative process as it flows through the HECS. When the creative pulse is unblocked, we are able to manifest our longing-but we all have blocks that stop the creative flow, places where we have stopped our energy due to wounding and traumas from childhood. Barbara guides us through the steps to release these blocks so creative energy is free to flow; the end result is not only the physical manifestation of our heart's longing but also more core essence, more core light. Part 2 takes us to the astral world or the 4th level of the HECS to explore its relation to the creative process. Before we can understand the 4th level we must first perceive it! Barbara begins Part 2 with an explanation of how high sense perception works, so we can begin to perceive not only the 4th level but also other levels of the HECS. Then she explains in detail how the 4th level functions, discussing blocks that may have occurred through multiple lifetimes; the process of death and soul travel and how it affects the HECS; and how to heal the energetic cords that connect us to people with whom we are in relationship, either in our present lives or across generations. Interwoven through the book are Barbara Brennan's personal stories of her childhood as well as her experiences as a beginning and then professional healer and founder of the Barbara Brennan School of Healing. Also included is channeled poetry from her guide, Heyoan, which further elucidates and integrates the concepts presented throughout. Finally, each chapter ends with questions to guide the reader's further work and exploration.

The study of medicine and healing traditions is well developed in the discipline of anthropology. Most religious studies scholars, however, continue to assume that "medicine" and "biomedicine" are one and the same and that when religion and medicine are mentioned together, the reference is necessarily either to faith healing or bioethics. Scholars of religion also have tended to assume that religious healing refers to the practices of only a few groups, such as Christian Scientists and pentecostals. Most are now aware of the work of physicians who attempt to demonstrate positive health outcomes in relation to religious practice, but few seem to realize the myriad ways in which healing pervades virtually all religious systems. This volume is designed to help instructors incorporate discussion of healing into their courses and to encourage the development of courses focused on religion and healing. It brings together essays by leading experts in a range of disciplines and addresses the role of healing in many different religious traditions and cultural communities. An invaluable resource for faculty in anthropology, religious studies, American studies, sociology, and ethnic studies, it also addresses the needs of educators training physicians, health care professionals, and chaplains, particularly in relation to what is referred to as "cultural competence" - the ability to work with multicultural and religiously diverse patient populations.
The Bible is widely regarded as the book of books. In a way, people shaped by Western culture are all children of the Bible: Its language has shaped our languages. Its morality is a foundation of our morality. Its pictures have furnished our world of imagination. Its parables have given material and reference points to our literature and culture. But who really knows the Bible? How is it structured? What is its content? When and according to what criteria was it determined which scriptures were to be included in the Bible and which were not? What is the best way to interpret it: historically, salvation-historically, or spiritually? And what significance can the Bible have for Christians and all spiritual seekers today? You will find answers in this book.
A Thoroughly Biblical and Compelling Case for Healing from the Best-Selling Author of A More Excellent Way Over thirty years ago, Dr. Henry Wright experienced major success in praying for people to be healed from disease. But suddenly the healing stopped. He began asking God why people weren’t being healed. Through a pursuit of God’s Word and truth, he began a lifelong journey of learning the spiritual roots of disease and blockages to healing. In this journey, he discovered that about 80 percent of all disease has a spiritual root issue and is a direct result of a breakdown in our relationship with God, ourselves, or others. Dr. Wright began teaching the biblical principles and truths he discovered and found great success in people’s healing and recovery. He has helped tens of thousands to experience wholeness in their lives. Every human being is a spirit with a soul living in a body. Therefore, this is not just about our physical health, although it greatly impacts our bodily well-being. It is about our identity in God and the freedom He desires to give us, extending from our spirits to our souls and bodies. In this book, Dr. Wright presents a thoroughly biblical and compelling case for healing. If you think you’ve read all you need to know about healing, it’s time to take another look! The author clearly shows that disease is not a random occurrence and that science and medicine have their limitations in dealing with the spiritual roots of illnesses that inflict millions. We need healing for spirit, soul, and body. If you have recently been diagnosed with an illness or have been struggling with your health for years, there is hope and healing ahead. “I am so thankful about these physical healings. However, I’m even more thankful for the inner peace and faith that I have been experiencing. [They are] beyond description.” —Sue from Maryland (healed of back pain, rheumatism, and high cholesterol) “His perfect will is that we don’t get sick. But once we’re sick, the provision has been made for healing. We just need to line up with the Word of God and be transparent, and everything takes care of the rest.” —Claudio (he and his wife healed of infertility; their newborn son healed of serious health issues)
A bold account of the development of human consciousness and spirituality over the ages and an examination of the dynamic global transformation of attitudes about healing. For more than fifteen years, Caroline Myss has studied why some people heal, while others do not. In her previous book, Anatomy of the Spirit, Dr. Myss illuminated the hidden interactions of belief and body, soul and cell to show how, as she inimitably puts it, "your biography becomes your biology." In Why People Don't Heal and How They Can, she builds on her earlier teachings of the seven different energy centers of the body to provide a vital self-healing program for physical and spiritual disorders. With her characteristic no-nonsense style and high-voltage storytelling, she exposes and explodes the five myths about healing, explains the cultural and individual contexts in which people become physically and spiritually ill and invested in "woundology," and teaches new methods of working with the challenges that the seven energy centers embody. To help you get and stay on the path to wellness, Dr. Myss provides rituals and prayers for gaining a symbolic perspective on your life issues; for bolstering your personal power; and for connecting with a universal divine energy. Dr. Myss's breakthrough views on energy medicine and her active approach to healing life issues and physical illness will help you overcome the mental blocks that keep you from becoming well.
