Healing the Mind
Every idea, thought and belief has the potential to influence and change the balance between physical, neurological and hormonal systems in the body. Scientific research is now proving that guided imagery and visualization can improve the body's natural capacity to heal, reduce stress and provide many other health benefits. The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), the main US Federal Government agency for scientific research on complementary health care systems, says that mind-body approaches have potential benefits and advantages in the treatment of many illnesses including cancer. The ancient symbol of the labyrinth represents a practice intended to heal mind, body and spirit. In walking the labyrinth medieval pilgrims allowed the structure of the labyrinth to guide their steps to the rosette design at the centre with it's rich symbolic meanings of connection and healing. The guided imagery of this CD provides a supportive structure that overcomes old fears and guides the listener to the heart center of compassionate awareness where healing the mind becomes a reality. .
