  • In his bestselling Falling Upward, Father Richard Rohr offers a new paradigm for understanding one of the most profound of life’s mysteries: how our failings can be the foundation for our ongoing spiritual growth. Drawing on the wisdom from time-honoured myths, heroic poems, great thinkers and sacred religious texts, he demonstrates that we grow spiritually more by doing it wrong than by doing it right.

     

    The Companion Journal helps those who have (and those who have not) read Falling Upward to engage fully with the questions the book raises. Using a blend of quotes, questions for individual and group reflection, stories, and suggestions for spiritual practices, it provides a wise guide for deepening the spiritual journey – at any time of life.

    In this elegant and exhaustively researched book Dr Lissa Rankin offers compelling evidence both that human beings are far more than an assemblage of chemicals and electrical signalling, and that that the mind is the very best drug there is. Prepare to open yourself to an entirely new paradigm of medicine, health, and healing.

     - Lynne McTaggart, international best-selling author of The Field, The Intention Experiment, and The Bond

     

    What a pleasure it is to see the next generation of physicians waking up to what I call real medicine—the kind that acknowledges our true power to heal and be well.

     - Christiane Northrup, M.D., OB/GYN physician and author of the New York Times bestsellers: Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause

     

    In this book, Lissa Rankin clearly states what many health care providers (not to mention patients) already know: the way our society’s physicians are trained, pressured, and overworked is in many ways inimical to the process of healing. In her life, her work, and her words, Dr Rankin demonstrates a new way to combine the brilliance of modern science with the wisdom of the heart. Anyone who will ever need a doctor, and certainly anyone who will ever be a doctor, will be enriched and enlightened by her ideas. Just reading  Mind Over Medicine is a genuinely healing experience.

     - Martha Beck, Ph.D. author of  Finding Your Way in a Wild New World

     

    Being my own inner physician for years means that I’m SUPER thrilled about Dr Lissa Rankin’s brilliant new book, Mind Over Medicine. She marries intuition with science and shows us all our healing SUPERPOWERS, and how to live our lives this way. And, Lissa’s writing style is so exuberant and deep at the same time, it makes me feel like I can do handstands on the ocean!

     - SARK , author of 16 books, artist, and founder of PlanetSARK.com

     

    Mind Over Medicine modernizes age old messages of wisdom and makes the measier to understand and apply to modern day lifestyles. This book contains much wisdom in easy-to-apply lessons we can all learn from.

     - Bernie Siegel, M.D., author of Love, Medicine & Miracles

     

    With humour, warmth, and compelling research, Dr Lissa Rankin’s Mind Over Medicine begins to heal the most critical fracture of our time—the break between our mind, bodies, and spirit. When it comes to our physical and emotional health, we need to tap into our own wisdom and find our voices. Lissa’s passion and experiences make her the perfect guide for this journey.

     - Brené Brown, Ph.D., New York Times best-selling author of Daring Greatly: How the Courage to be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead

     - Chris Guillebeau, New York Times best-selling author of The $100 Startup

     

    Dr Lissa Rankin is a jet-powered force of vibrant health and happiness, for women in the world today. This book is vital. It is the first time a physician has written on behalf of the health of the whole body and soul of woman. She identifies the how to’s of optimum health in every aspect of a woman’s life. It is not only a must-read, it is an urgent, required read!

     - Regena Thomashauer (a.k.a. Mama Gena), author of  Mama Gena’s School of Womanly Arts

     

    ‘Body and spirit are twins: God only knows which is which,’ Swinburne wisely said more than a century ago. But for most of the twentieth century, the body has hogged the show. Now consciousness, mind, and spirit are back in center stage in medicine. In Mind Over Medicine , Dr Lissa Rankin shows why. This is a compelling, clear, and reader-friendly vision of where medicine and healing are headed, written by an expert medical insider who’s been there. Buy two copies—one for you and one for your doctor.

     - Larry Dossey, M.D., author of  Reinventing Medicine, Healing Words, and One Mind

     

    WOW! Just wow! That is how I feel about Lissa Rankin’s work! Everything she says rings so true to me, and her voice, as a professional medical doctor, is just what is needed in today’s drug dependent society. Bravo, Lissa for having the courage to speak out and share your truth. This world needs more like you!

     - Anita Moorjani, New York Times best-selling author of Dying to Be Me

     

    An extraordinary, evidence-based look at the true impact of mindset and lifestyle on pain, disease, and vitality.

Prepare to have your mind blow... and your body healed.

     - Jonathan Fields, author of Uncertainty and founder of the Good Life Project
