the extraordinary healing power of ordinary things

As a well-read child of “Generation Self-Help,” I found that as I made my way through Dr. Dossey”™s book, I kept waiting for the “How To” part to kick in ”“ to be assaulted with charts, regimens, quizzes. I was waiting for the part that suggests that if I just read this one book, I”™ll have my life figured out.

It didn”™t happen.

In fact, Dossey spends a great deal of time talking about (and celebrating) the many paradoxes that make up the mystery of life and the human body. The fourteen steps aren”™t a “how to,” but are actually chapters on such intangible concepts as “optimism,” “risk,” “unhappiness,” and “nothing.” According to Dossey ”“ who, along with Andrew Weil, is at the forefront of integrative medicine ”“ these are all “treasures in plain sight,” which can serve as miraculous sources of healing. While Dossey has a breezy style and has obviously done his homework in the less scientific arenas of psychology and spirituality, the book never quite gels: its lack of cohesion makes it read more like a series of blog entries than a book. That being said, it is filled with inspirational stories of spontaneous healing (although, I”™m not sure having maggots thrust upon me would be my first choice of alternative medicine) as well as musings on subjects that can be applied to all areas of one”™s life ”“ not just one”™s health.
