The Healing Circle
The Healing Circle helps answer the question ‘how can you heal after a cancer diagnosis?’ The book integrates the scientific perspective of traditional medical care and healthy lifestyle habits of an Oncologist/Associate Professor of Medicine with the wisdom-based techniques and teachings of a Psychotherapist / Healer. Following the agenda of a “Skills for Healing Cancer Weekend Retreat” this book also offers inspiring true stories of people attending the program. Its practical and integrated approach maximizes the chance of recovery from cancer – and allows the cancer journey to be viewed as a journey of the spirit.
