Humor and Healing

Humor and Healing is Dr. Bernie Siegel’s sparkling conversation about the healing power of love and laughter. From how positive thinking helps us lead longer and more productive lives, to new findings about the healing power of laughter, to miracles of spontaneous remission in terminally ill patients, you will find Humor and Healing to be a life-affirming house call from this respected surgeon and speaker.

As Dr. Siegel says, “If you live in your heart, magic happens.” This is the essence of his powerful approach to living your life in the present. Each insight about the psychology of illness shared by Dr. Siegel is supported by a real-life example drawn from his work as a surgeon and teacher. Humor and Healing also includes many stories, told with love and joy as only Dr. Siegel can, about exceptional patients who have opened to the heart of healing, with unforgettable results.

They are the first thing I pack when going to hospital, the last thing I listen to if I’m having trouble sleeping because of pain or depression and the best thing I could recommend to anyone with chronic illness. Bernie’s voice is…

  3. Great wisdom and knowledge for us all. Even if you weren’t facing illness, the wisdom here is exceptional, and with some wonderful laughter along the way. Better to laugh at ourselves and our situation than not!This is so good, I’m using it as part of a class on Conscious Aging.
