Meaning & Medicine: A Doctor's Tales of Breakthrough and Healing

"Larry Dossey is on the cutting edge of our new as yet nameless era. He is brilliant and provocative. This book is crucial as a corrective to the timeworn and frigid medical model currently in vouge." John Bradshaw
author of Homecoming

Here is a revolutionary new look at medicine and the mind-body connection to healing by a frank and unconventional physician-writer — a book that taps the power of hope and healing that lies within each of us.

Dr. Larry Dossey dared to break with traditional scientific medical thought in his previous books, Space, Time & Medicine and Recovering the Soul. Now he continues his investigation into the connection between mind, meaning, and illness. Through fascinating clinical stories from his many years of practice he shows in true, often dramatic accounts how thought and emotion do influence the body — and can make the difference between life and death. Writing with wonderful clarity and weaving together the ideas of physicists, philosophers, physicians, and researchers, Dr. Dossey illustrates the extraordinary ability of the mind and the body to perform miracles. Filled with case histories, clinical findings, and deeply inspiring personal stories, Meaning & Medicine is a thought-provoking and life-changing book. It gives us both hope and power in the quest toward understanding the impact of attitudes, thoughts, and emotions on our health — and on our lives.

"Larry Dossey, as always, makes the mind-body link very clear and accessible to aid in healing. But yet a greater healing is here offered as he establishes the mind-heart connection. He speaks of the healing that is even more than cure." Stephen Levin
author of Healing into Life and Death

"Meaning & Medicine is a remarkable and thrilling book. I literally could not put it down. Larry Dossey is a consummate physician, storyteller, and scholar — perhaps the most seminal thinker of our time. Replete with fresh insights about the much-overlooked role of the unconscious, this book elevated my ideas about healing to an entirely new level. It is bound to become a classic in the new medicine." Joan Borysenko, Ph.D.
