Collapsing in the shower early one morning in 1991, Ottawa journalist John Heney found himself unable to control his hands or legs, suddenly going into full-body spasms which would mount to dozens of these attacks per day. Within weeks he would find himself without work, direction or hope as the damage in his nervous system took hold.
Misdiagnosis, malpractice and miscommunication would mean it would be up to him to discover what could be done about this baffling disorder, and how he could regain purpose, an income and personal independence while being left, as one doctor put it, with a "hideous and horrible way to have to live."
The Thunder Within dares to challenge us about the way our society deals with healing, and how we often forget the value of teamwork, respect and joy in daily living. Deemed to have done "more for himself than the entire medical profession," Heney turned his background into a source of information, insight and teaching as he began to share with all manner of groups about the physics and spirit behind thought, intent, abilities, hope and inspiration.
Hilarious at times, uplifting in its recommendations and candid in its revelations, The Thunder Within is being used in business instruction, in Scouting, and by doctors, patients, therapists, families and friends of the ill, and by Canada s Department of National Defence. It has been featured at a Conference Board of Canada national seminar.
Why? The Thunder Within touches us in places we know are there but which we often dare not speak of. The book reveals, by example, how much more can be found within each of us exactly where we are, no matter how small or large our role in life.
The experience that made John Heney the "spiritual mechanic" by showing people the principles of fun, ease and joy in learning is now spreading its influence worldwide, and can be yours as a spectator, in a journey that is transforming the workplace, the role of medicine, and how we treat ourselves and others. "Persons in health care practice and policy-making, those suffering serious illness and disabilities, scientists concerned with matters of energy, parapsychologists and spiritual seekers can benefit from reading this exceptional book." -L. Richard Batzler, Ph.D., Past President, Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship International
