Dr. Bernie Siegel, or Bernie as he prefers to be called, has written another book entitled The Art of Healing. Just as with all his other books, The Art of Healing is a wonderful source of love and miracles. Bernie leads the reader on a journey to greater awareness to self healing, offering many tools that can be used by anyone facing a serious life challenge. These tools are drawn from our own inner wisdom and include creative visualization, positive affirmations, laughter, meditation, past-life regression, journalling, communication with animals, art therapy and dreams.
Bernie calls himself the “Jungian surgeon,” basing much of what he offers on the concepts and philosophies of the renowned psychotherapist Dr. Carl G. Jung. Bernie believes that the “potential for self healing is built into [every human being],” that it doesn’t always require a surgical knife to cut away the dis-ease.
Each chapter of his book contains actual patients’ stories of healing and prescriptive exercises that he recommends for readers to explore their own inner wisdom. He calls upon you as the reader to trust your own divinity, filling yourself with love and hope so that you may heal yourself. He asks you to take a look at your life and ask yourself “what should I do to change my life and see my circumstance as a blessing and not a curse?”
What excites me to no end about Bernie’s book is it has come at a time when I am on the last stretch of my own healing journey, one in which I am learning to surrender and let go, trusting my own divinity to lead me down the path of full recovery from my stroke. Most of the tools that he recommends are ones that I have used in the past or are using in the present to help me with my own self healing. And his messages are helping to catapult me further down my path. You know the saying “when the student is ready, the teacher appears.” I have essentially received “confirmation” from a renowned physician and spiritual teacher that what I have been doing as a survivor of a life-altering experience and what I share in my own book Radiant Survivor is truly my life’s purpose, my destiny.
Thank you Bernie for such a jewel, and for helping me go further on my journey to my own self healing.

ERICA TUCCI had a full life as a corporate manager of a Fortune 500 company, a healing arts business owner and an author of three books. It all came to a screeching halt in June 2011 when she had a stroke that left her completely paralyzed on her right side. During Erica’s recovery, she gained much wisdom about what’s really important in life, and she re-entered the world with a new mission: to use her story as an inspiration for others facing life challenges, which we all have, big or small. That story can be found in Erica’s new book, Radiant Survivor: How to Shine and Thrive through Recovery from Stroke, Cancer, Abuse, Addiction and Other Life-Altering Experiences, launching on November 19th, 2013.
