Questo testo illuminante sulla guarigione esplora un territorio che nessun libro sulla medicina mente-corpo ha mai preso in considerazione: la vera natura della mente e le origini profonde del dolore. La saggezza contenuta in queste pagine e gli esercizi pratici, basati sull'antica sapienza del buddhismo tibetano, sono importantissimi doni di pace che possono trasformare l'esperienza di vita del lettore.

«Tulku Thondup ci offre più di una cornice teorica di approccio alla salute: ci fornisce metodi pratici, convalidati in secoli di prassi terapeutica tibetana. E, così facendo, indica un mezzo per guarire non soltanto il corpo, la mente e lo spirito, ma anche il cuore. Questo sentiero verso la guarigione è dunque una pratica spirituale, una maniera di trasformare le nostre stesse vite».
dalla prefazione di Daniel Goleman

Recensione in altra lingua (English):

The true nature of our minds is enlightened and peaceful, as the depth of the ocean is calm and clear. But when we mentally grasp and emotionally cling to our wants and worries with all our energy, we lose our own enlightened freedom and healing power, only to gain stress and exhaustion, suffering and overexcitement, like the turbulent waves rolling on the surface of the ocean.

Our minds possess the power to heal pain and stress, and to blossom into peace and joy, by loosening the clinging attitudes that Buddhists call "grasping at self." If we apply the mind's healing power, we can heal not only our mental and emotional afflictions, but physical problems also.

This book is an invitation to awaken the healing power of mind through inspiring images and sounds, mindful movements, positive perceptions, soothing feelings, trusting confidence, and the realization of openness. The healing principle on which these exercises are based is the universal nature and omnipresent power envisioned in Mahayana Buddhism. Yet for healing, we don't have to be believers in any particular faith. We can heal body and mind simply by being what we truly are, and by allowing our own natural healing qualities to manifest: a peaceful and open mind, a loving and positive attitude, and warm, joyful energy in a state of balance and harmony.
