MIND MEDICINE Foreword by Andrew Weil M.D.
I really did not know what to expect when I picked up the manuscript of Mind Medicine. I had no contact with Uri Geller in more than 25 years, and when I last saw him, he was a performer of psychic feats who told me he was not interested in healing. He was then young and restless, unable to sit still and, consequently, also uninterested in meditation. His passion was trying to convince audiences and scientists of the auhtneticity of his powers of telepathy and psychokinesis and in so doing turn the world on it’s ears.
The Uri Geller who wrote this book is obviously a different man, one who is thoughtful, mature, and very much interested in healing. I thought I would find in these pages an emphasis on psychic phenomena, with instructions for unleashing the power that Uri uses to bend spoons and keys and turning it on germs and tumours. Instead I found a great deal of very sensible advice for improving general health and wellness and practical guidance for taking advantage of the body/mind connection to access healing. Along the way, this calmer and wiser Uri Geller surveys the history of western medicine, reviews complementary therapies, explains the actions of endocrine hormones and common pharmaceutical drugs, and gives readers basic instruction in meditation, which he now feels is an essential component of a healthy lifestyle.
Those who enjoy good health will find here many suggestions for maintaining it. Those who are ill will find many specific methods for getting better, including visualizations and numerous self tests to identify beliefs and behaviors that act as obstacles to healing.
Throughout the world people are wanting to take greater charge of their own well-being, to be less dependent on outside experts and authorities, less in need of toxic drugs and invasive medical procedures. Mind Medicine helps provide this kind of empowerment by reminding readers of the reality of their own natural healing ability and showing them how to allow it to work for them.
This is not a book of testimonials or miracles that defy rational explanation, nor is it an excuse for Uri Geller to showcase his own remarkable talents. It is a collection of grounded, useful information that I think will help many. I read it with interest and pleasure, not least because it is so revealing of Uri Geller’s own growth and development into a man committed to the welfares of others.
