Defying Gravity: The Workshop

One of my favorite authors, Caroline Myss, recently came out with her latest book: Defy Gravity: Healing Beyond the Bounds of Reason. While it is true that at times Myss can be perceived as overbearing and school-marmish, the book (as all of her books, in my opinion) is magnificent and offers enormous depth. I read it, furthermore, with two others on my plate, and dived into the three of them simultaneously because they are all so related. (The other two are Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul, by Deepak Chopra, and Home With God: In A Life That Never Ends by Neale Donald Walsch.)

Here is Amazon's take on Caroline Myss' book: New York Times best-selling author Caroline Myss draws from her years as a medical intuitive to show that healing is not only physical; it is also a mystical phenomenon that transcends reason.
Inspired by ordinary people who overcame a wide array of physical and psychological ailments—from rheumatoid arthritis to cancer—Caroline dove into the works of the great mystics to gain a deeper understanding of healing’s spiritual underpinnings. Based on these studies, she demonstrates how conventional and holistic medicine often fall short in times of need. Both systems rely upon a logical approach to curing illness when there is nothing reasonable about the emotional, psychological, or spiritual influences behind any ailment.
Integral to this mystical healing approach is the engagement of the soul, which we experience through exploring our seven shadow passions, building an empowered inner self around our seven inherent graces, and learning how to work with the mystical laws that govern it. This knowledge holds the key to understanding what it means to defy gravity and break through the boundaries of ordinary thought. You can heal any illness. You can channel grace. And you can learn to live fearlessly.
