I recommend a brilliantly crafted textbook – Why Woo Woo Works : The Surprising Science Behind Meditation, Reiki, Crystals and Other Alternative Practices by David Hamilton PhD.
Why should we meditate? How can crystals heal the mind and body? Why is visualization so powerful – and so effective?
Alternative therapies, healing modalities, and spiritual practices are often referred to as ‘woo-woo,’ – but many of these approaches are actually supported by compelling scientific evidence.
In this dynamic and thought-provoking book, David R. Hamilton PhD dives deeper into the true nature of consciousness and presents the cutting-edge research behind energy healing, crystals, meditation, and more.
· The science behind some of today’s most popular alternative practices
· How your thoughts, emotions, and beliefs have healing power
· The benefits of nature and a holistic approach to healing
· A fascinating link between consciousness and human connection
· The relationship between suppressed emotions and disease
The ideas behind some of these holistic therapies have been around for millennia – but now we have scientific evidence demonstrating how they can contribute to physical, emotional, and energetic healing too.
It’s time to embrace the truth: That woo-woo really does work.
Take a fantastic journey with David R. Hamilton, Ph.D. through a world beyond what the eyes can see in “Why Woo Woo Works: The Surprising Science Behind Meditation, Reiki, Crystals and Other Alternative Practices.” Just as Dr. Hamilton once built molecules for drugs in his role as an organic chemist, he builds a beautiful and intriguing conversation about phenomena that will stretch your mind and open your heart and soul to the possibilities of why, what typically is referred to as ‘woo woo’, works. He cites research that both supports the science behind these phenomena while highlighting the studies that support the notion that it’s just all woo woo anyway. You will go from woo woo to wow as Dr. Hamilton shares anecdotes from his personal life and other investigators of these phenomena. I felt as though I were sitting at a café having a cup of tea with Dr. Hamilton absorbed in this compelling conversation about various healing modalities, crystals, time, the Law of Attraction and how ‘woo woo’ phenomena can help inform our lives to guide us as we navigate our physical world.
