Hailed by the San Francisco Chronicle as "an eleoquent new benchmark in mind-body literature," The Healing Path shows how the darkest passage of human life may also become a journey of the soul. Marc Ian Barasch was an award-winning national editor and journalist whe he was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. For seven years, from high-tech hospitals to Tibetan retreats to the doorsteps of extraordinary survivors, he searched for life-giving lessons in the shadow of life-threatening illness. Having interviewed dozens of people for whom serious illness (and, sometimes, spontaneous remission) became a catalyst for profound personal change, he discovered a universal pattern, a route with signposts others can use to guide their way. Combining an evenhanded look at conventional and alternative medicine with a deep understanding of the wisdom of dreams and mythology, The Healing Path is an archetypal map over difficult terrain in search of spiritual wholeness.Barasch, Marc I. is the author of 'Healing Path:soul Approach to Illness' with ISBN 9780140194869 and ISBN 014019486X.
