Some of today's most important teachers and thinkers share their personal stories of healing wisdom, self-understanding, inner peace, and life transformation as they share their most challenging experiences, in a volume that features contributions by Dean Ornish, Bernie Siegel, Joan Borysenko, Harriet Lerner, Susan Jeffers, Dharma Singh Khalsa, and others. Original.
Cohen, a cancer researcher and poet, collects essays and personal stories on overcoming challenges, soul expression, death and dying, life's everyday lessons, spirituality, and relationships. "Today's greatest teachers" range from Buddhist Monk Thich Nhat Hanh, to Martha Beck, an "innovator in life design" and monthly columnist at O, The Oprah Magazine. In between are experts in integrative and preventive medicine, clinical psychologists and social workers, and a visionary who writes poetry about organizational change. Cohen is founder of the Complementary and Alternative Medicine Research Program in Cancer at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center.
