'The wisdom and knowledge that Judy has learned from her experience with cancer can be our guide and coach.' - Bernie Siegel MD, Author of Love, Medicine & Miracles and The Art of Healing This extraordinary book is for anyone whose life has been touched by cancer, whether as a patient or as someone who supports cancer patients either personally or professionally. Author Judy Erel's brave account of her own journey, which began with the diagnosis of incurable bone marrow cancer, offers helpful, friendly guidance for every cancer challenge, from diagnosis through radiation, chemotherapy, surgery and a bone marrow transplant to remission and beyond. Throughout the book are detailed instructions for her Thought Work - practical exercises designed to create a positive, proactive mindset that maximizes recovery potential and supports conventional cancer treatment.
Alongside these exercises, which include journaling, mandala creation, setting healing intentions, mindful breathing and guided meditations, Judy offers her own transformative artworks with the reminder that any creative self-expression can be healing. You absolutely do not have to be artistic to benefit from her methods as it is not the outcome but the actual physical process of doing that matters, ultimately empowering and transforming both mind and body.
