We have set up a small publishing company, Healing Journey Books, to publish books about the Healing Journey.
Our first publication is a revised edition of Alastair Cunningham’s book The Healing Journey.
“Dr Cunningham presents essential information and a practical guide for people who wish to address a diagnosis of cancer as not just a biological disease but also as a psychological and spiritual crisis. Thousands of people have benefited directly from his programme.” William Adair, former Executive Director, Wellspring Centre, Ontario
The Healing Journey is a comprehensive discussion of what people with cancer can do to respond to the illness, explaining the potential of different avenues from conventional medicine and the role of diet to psychological and spiritual approaches.
Alastair Cunningham writes not just as a scientist but also as someone who has had cancer himself. While cancer can of course be a very frightening experience, he suggests that it can also give people an impetus to develop a new worldview and a new experience of life that can be deeply satisfying.
This revised edition also includes contributions from Dr Claire Edmonds and Petra Griffiths describing how the Healing Journey programme, a structured approach towards creating spiritual and psychological healing, has developed in Canada and the UK.
Dr Alastair J Cunningham was Professor of Medical Biophysics and Psychiatry at the University of Toronto up to his retirement. He developed the Healing Journey programme to help cancer patients to help themselves through learning practical coping skills and developing psychological and spiritual wellbeing. In 2003 Dr Cunningham was named an officer of the Order of Canada for his service to cancer patients. In 2007 he was co-winner of the first Roger’s Prize for Excellence in Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
