We all face times when we need to be healed - some traumatic experience or grave disappointment overwhelms us, burying the pain deep inside, where it is hidden for days, months, even years.
In Defy Gravity, bestselling author Caroline Myss challenges the conventional approach to healing, which maintains that we can always find reasons for why things happen as they do. The truth is, we can't, and now it's time to explore a model for healing that leads us into deeper and more effective truths. Drawing from her years as a medical intuitive and teacher, Myss shares real-life stories of people who were considered 'terminal cases' and, through nothing short of a miracle, survived their illnesses.
