Peace with Cancer presents unique and spiritually empowering methods of approaching cancer and other chronic illnesses. Instead of going to war with our disease, this book shares a shamanism-based model that works at restoring balance, harmony and peace to our approach to illness.
Over the past 30 years Myron Eshowsky, M.S. has done counseling and healing work with thousands of individuals. Watching his own father struggle with and ultimately succumb to cancer deepened his commitment to explore the spiritual, physical and environmental terrains of illness. This book draws upon that journey and his work with individuals diagnosed with cancer, including survivors of Chernobyl, Vietnam Vets, people with AIDS, leukemia and many other cancers and acute conditions.
“Filled with heart and integrity, the rituals in this book are absolutely brilliant.”
– C.Michael Smith,PhD., author of Jung and Shamanism.
Based on his work with indigenous healers from around the globe, the model of healing Eshowsky presents is not an alternative to Western medical treatment but a complement to it. The spiritually based healing techniques are designed to help us excavate deeper truths, bring healing to the soul and make peace with our life and death. This well-researched, experiential-based book is a must read for anyone who’s been diagnosed with cancer or a chronic illness, friends and family of those affected by disease, and professional healers.
“…provides tools for addressing both body and soul in multi-leveled healing processes that address the emotions of helplessness, depression, and psychic distress that are associated with poof outcomes in cancer treatment.”
- Michael Winkelman, PhD., author of Shamanism: The Neural Ecology of Consciousness and Healing
