Joan Borysenko, a workshop leader, cancer cell biologist, and psychologist, makes this this exploration of the connections between forgiveness and wholness into a multidimensional experience. She uses illustrative material from Christianity, Buddhism, Taoism, mystical poets Rumi and Kabir, case histories of spontaneous healings, step-by-step meditations, and the latest medical research on mind/body interactions.

Borysenko proclaims that forgiveness of self and others is a spiritual art leading to meaning, beauty, balance, and right relationship. And she makes it quite clear that it is an essential factor in the healing of illness and the achievement of emotional wellness.
