Sandy JohnsonISBN: 1579546862;
Is it still possible to believe in miracles in our modern world? After surviving a life-threatening bout with breast cancer, Sandy Johnson, author of the critically acclaimed The Book of Elders, undertook a personal quest to find out. She sought out the most powerful, authentic spiritual healers across the globe and allowed them access to her own body and heart, to find out who truly had the power to heal and who dealt simply in illusion. Through her own experience and countless interviews with fellow patients, the author provides a glimpse into this world. Among the astounding healers she encountered on her journey: -A 48-year-old furniture maker who can cure the flu over the phone -An En-glishman whose fingers radiate pink light during healing sessions -A Brazilian who, with no anesthesia and an unsterilized knife, has cured patients of cancer, blindness, arthritis, and brain tumors -A musician who can mend broken bones and heal spinal problems.
