For Diane Goldner, what began as an investigative story for The New York Times, became a four-year pilgrimage into the thriving yet controversial world of energy healing in America. Her report, How People Heal, serves as both an introduction to this world, and an engrossing narrative featuring in-depth portraits of healers Barbara Brennan and Rosalyn Bruyere. Goldner spent hours alongside these spiritual and savvy women witnessing their healing work, while casting a critical eye at the business side of their organizations.

How People Heal also introduces you to physicists mapping the effects of love and desire across time and space, nurses using therapeutic touch on hospital patients, and heart surgeons using energy medicine in the operating room. Most important, you'll meet Jonathan Kramer, Doris Dennard, Marilyn Schneider, and others like them, whose lives and life-threatening illnesses have been transformed by the work of energy healers.

How People Heal is the trade paper edition of the 1999 hardcover Infinite Grace: Where the Worlds of Science and Spiritual Healing Meet.

How People Heal takes you inside:

  • schools and institutions training energy healers
  • traditional hospitals and clinics integrating energy medicine into everyday practice
  • labs measuring the effects of energy and consciousness on healing
  • the hearts and minds of patients choosing to work with energy healers instead of conventional therapy

From the Inside Flap:

Leading scientists are beginning to believe what healers and mystics have always said: The forces of mind and spirit are as real as gravity and atomic power. We sometimes assume that subtle energy is beyond our ability to measure or harness. Infinite Grace shows, instead, that it is literally at our fingertips.

Journalist Diane Goldner began her four-year exploration of subtle healing as a skeptical reporter. She'd heard the stories about spiritual healing, energy medicine, therapeutic touch, "laying on of hands," and faith healing. But, she asked, if these unusual forms of healing work, why is it a secret?

Goldner visited laboratories, hospitals, and clinics where researchers study what used to be called miracle healing. She pored over the scientific studies and then entered the trenches, working alongside some of today's leading energy healers. Her research convinced her that spiritual and energy healing are real and teachable, and can play a life-changing role in the treatment of serious illnesses, from emotional distress to heart disease, from cancer to AIDS.

The conscious use of subtle energy is a powerful healing tool. Infinite Grace tells why this is the future of healing.
