The Healing Power of Mind and Relationship (Dr. Jeanne Achterberg) (1998)
One of the most enduring therapy treatments, Imagery, portrays worlds more information than we are aware of. An image may facilitate a physiological process, and in turn be facilitated by it. From self inquiry to religious prayers, and even the powerful presence of another human being, images hold profound influence. Thoughts, emotions, sensations, all reflect invisible aspects of our consciousness in a dance of creation that is also transformatively healing in conjunction with modern medicine. Jeanne Achterberg, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology at the Saybrook Institute in San Francisco, senior editor for the Journal of Alternative Therapies for Health and Medicine, and author of Rituals of Healing, highlights the tremendous force that imagery plays in healing our modern schisms.
