Larry Dossey insists that both the practice and teaching of modern medicine should encompass two subjects that many in the scientific establishment would rather ignore. The first is meaning. The second is nonlocality - the ability of being able to affect another, through prayer for example, at a distance and through no known medium. A third concept connects and embodies both meaning and nonlocality: mind. These essays seek to challenge and inspire readers to examine themselves and their health in a new light. Dossey examines love, prayer, laughter, creativity, dreams, hypnosis and more, and their impact on human consciousness and the healing process.
