Medicine Buddha/Medicine Mind: Using Your Mind to Heal!

“When I stumbled upon Norman Doidge’s book The Brain That Changes Itself some dendrites fired in my brain and I’m sure my dopamine levels heightened in response to what I saw: here in the latest science from the West lay an elegant explanation of how meditating on figures and repeating mantras, the foundation practices of Tibetan Vajrayana Tantra Buddhism, works. I gobbled the book once, then again.

What thrills me and I hope will help you and others is that here begins an explanation that does not demand faith. Neuroscience explains the reason why this form of meditation works to ease suffering, release pain and help form more positive attitudes, behaviors and life experience in those who practice diligently.”

This excerpt from my book Medicine Buddha/Medicine Mind I hope communicates to you the passion the book carries, and the simplicity of its writing. The message is clear: Neuroscience confirms that Visualization Meditation heals to the same degree, in a different manner, as Mindfulness Meditation.

Part memoir of my time in the Indian temple of the Tibetan leader His Holiness Sakya Trizen, when I was just 20 years old and of the extreme circumstances of rape and torture which thrust me toward having to learn to heal, the book’s emphasis is on what happens in our brains when we create images, through our memories, our dreams, our day dreams, or through the practice of Visualization Meditations such as Medicine Buddha. What Neuroscience proves has been clear to mystics for generations: we have the power to heal. I hope this book may help you and others provide for yourselves a life of strength, passion and health.  Please check it out as a gift for that special reader, that hard to buy for person or for your own understanding of the power images provoke: the power of your mind to heal!
