If a part of your life seems to make no sense, yet you can’t put the puzzle together because some of the pieces are missing, this book is for you. If you suspect that the treatment you received as a child has in some way impaired your judgment as an adult, if your current life seems to lack peace, this book is for you. This book is also for today’s children with the hope that their parents will recognize any abusive childhood treatment in their own past and finally stop the intergenerational cycle of abuse.

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, M.D., is the woman who has transformed the way the world thinks about death and dying. Beginning with the groundbreaking publication of the classic psychological study On Death and Dying, through her many books and her years working with terminally ill children, AIDS patients and the elderly, Kubler-Ross has brought comfort and understanding to millions coping with their own deaths or the deaths of loved ones. From her work in war-ravaged Poland to her pioneering counseling of the terminally ill, to her legendary seminars on death and dying at the University of Chicago, to her eye-opening discussions with those who had been revived after death, each experience provided Kubler-Ross with a piece of the puzzle. In a culture determined to sweep death under a carpet and hide it there, Kubler-Ross consistently defied common wisdom to bring it into the light and hold it there for us to see and not be afraid.

In The Cocoon and the Butterfly, drawing on thousands of accounts of “near death experiences” that she has accumulated over the years from persons of all ages and circumstances, Dr. Ross develops the image of the butterfly’s emergence from a cocoon as a symbol for the new beginning that such experiences portend for us when we die.

Alfred A. Tomatis

This autobiography was originally published in French (1977). The Tomatis Method, which helps develop listening and communication skills, is used in 15 different countries. Tomatis addresses his experience with some of the most difficult therapeutic and educational problems (e.g., stuttering, autism, dyslexia, balance, motor control, and integration) and shows how they are affected and controlled by the ear. His account will be welcomed by speech therapists, performing artists, educators, and psychotherapists.

“What Tomatis has done with sound and hearing is virtually a Copernican revolution.” -Jean Houston, Ph.D., author of The Possible Human

“Tomatis’ work is the long awaited foundation for what may well be the most important research in sound, learning and health.” -Don Campbell, author of Introduction to the Musical Brain and Rhythms of Learning

“In the tradition of Buckminster Fuller, Emanuel Swedenborg and Nicola Tesla, Tomatis is an irrepressible pioneer.” -Marilyn Ferguson, author of The Aquarian Conspiracy

Giuliano Dego

This extraordinary biographical novel is a faithful account of the heroic life of Dr. Max Gerson, originator of the most significant medically-based cure for cancer to emerge in modern times. Beginning in 1933, the novel details Gerson’s flight from Nazi Germany and the subsequent struggles of Andrej Markhoff (an emigre Russian aristocrat and former patient) to write the doctor’s story. Years later, Guliano Dego recovers Markoff’s papers and is at once captured by the drama of Gerson’s life. He travels to Mexico, to Gerson’s clinic in exile, where he observes the method first-hand and uncovers new and shocking facts in the plot to suppress Gerson’s work. In the novel’s gripping denouement, the author finally discovers both the fate of Andrej Markoff and the forces behind international medical collusion.

Sean Haldane

The only “how-to” book on emotional crises as distinct from long-term emotional problems, Emotional First Aid shows how to handle intense emotional episodes as well as crises between parents and children. Haldane argues that these crises must be dealt with on an individual basis if one is not to be invasive in coming to another’s aid, and that emotional first aid can help avoid the necessity for psychotherapy just as physical first aid can prevent extended medical treatment.

Dee Ann Parrish

The message of this clear and sympathetic book is that dysfunctional relationships—characterized by predictable patterns of vicious circles – can be healed. Reassuring case histories, drawn from the author’s own therapeutic practice, demonstrate why relationships disintegrate, and show how they can be made whole again. Here are proven techniques designed to short-circuit destructive habits. Readers will learn to use “diffusers” to keep conflicts from escalating, to gauge levels of emotional intimacy and identify barriers to closeness, to examine their own levels of communication and quality in listening, to use “I” statements to identify problematic issues, and uncover inter-generational patterns of dysfunction. For anyone seeking to improve a relationship or reconnect with a partner -with or without the aid of a therapist – this is essential reading.

These include temporary withdrawal from the media and a program to break through the conversational cliches that allow us to maintain a destructive distance. With a list of things not to say (from “You look good!” to “Take care of yourself!”) to suggestions for getting along with people you know well (but ought to know better), this is a social survival guide for the 21st century.

Benjamin Colodzin, M.D.

This practical manual by an experienced trauma therapist offers a wide variety of therapeutic methods for dealing with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder as well easy to understand explanations for why post-traumatic symptoms occur.

Post-traumatic Stress Disorder may afflict not just war veterans but anyone who has suffered a severe physical or emotional assault. This sane and practical manual by an experienced trauma therapist offers a wide variety of therapeutic methods as well as easy-to-understand explanations for why post-traumatic symptoms occur. Dr. Colodzin’s view is that most post-traumatic symptoms were once in fact adaptive reactions to the situations in which they developed, but are no longer appropriate to a changed, live situation.

The book is for individuals suffering from Post-traumatic Stress, their friends, families, and therapists. It offers techniques to help overcome its often paralyzing effects: from anxiety, depression, and rage to flashbacks, insomnia, nightmares, and substance abuse.

Laura Chester

Recommended by Andrew Weil in Natural Health, Natural Medicine, this book gives a moving account of the author’s successful struggle with “incurable” SLE (systemic lupus erythematosus), affecting mostly women. Ms. Chester shares the personal discoveries behind her recovery, and a meditation on what it means for a body to be “attacking itself.” This enlarged edition updates her story and includes a foreword by the best-selling authority on immune-system disease: the author of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Dr. Jesse Stoff.

“Laura Chester has written a moving and significant book. On one level, she discusses her personal odyssey through the realm of a serious and inexplicable disease – its history, current cultural status, biology, symbolism, and the doctors of all persuasions who attempt to cure it. On another level, she speaks to the esoteric level of the disease, discussing the initiation into a deeper level of self and a journey through the unconscious and archetypal aspects of nature. On this level, she is an artist more than a patient, an individual who has the power to effect her cure…”- Richard Grossinger, author of Planet Medicine,

Moving Medicine is an exuberant story of the inspired life of a major innovator on bodywork and health, Dr. Milton Trager: his journey from muscle-happy beach acrobat, boxer, dancer and local Miami celebrity, through the discovery of his healing gift, to his stature today as the internationally recognized genius of a major bodywork system based on “freedom and lightness” of body and mind. Along the way we learn of his successes in rehabilitating “hopeless” cases ( such as polio, MS, and osteoarthritis), his founding of an institute that has taught thousands who have brought benefit to many more thousands, and his discovery of a remarkably easy and straightforward approach to movement reeducation. In addition to telling his life story, Moving Medicine presents a detailed account of Dr. Trager’s work and serves as a complement to his own book, Movement as a Way to Agelessness (the new edition of Trager Mentastics, Station Hill). Milton Trager’s work will benefit anyone wishing to lead a healthier and more dynamic life.”-Deepak Chopra
