Product description

From Library Journal

Postulating that guilt is the root cause of many physical and emotional ailments, the author presents a mind/body system intended to eradicate guilt and promote well-being. Rejecting both formal religions and science, she develops a psycho-spiritual program that focuses inward on the human psyche; indeed, many of her good pointers for overcoming guilt are embedded in mystical and visionary experience. Borysenko affirms the reality of visions and relates instances of her patients' seeing the light--literally--and recovering from physical pain. The book is replete with New Age-type jargon: "Can you remember times when you were spontaneously centered and in touch with the Self?" The author's strange amalgam of pseudo-scientific concepts, extraneous elements of Eastern religions, and strands of mysticism will undoubtedly have great appeal to many troubled, confused people trying to "find themselves." Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 11/15/89.
