Library Journal Review

Postulating that guilt is the root cause of many physical and emotional ailments, the author presents a mind/body system intended to eradicate guilt and promote well-being. Rejecting both formal religions and science, she develops a psycho-spiritual program that focuses inward on the human psyche; indeed, many of her good pointers for overcoming guilt are embedded in mystical and visionary experience. Borysenko affirms the reality of visions and relates instances of her patients' seeing the light--literally--and recovering from physical pain. The book is replete with New Age-type jargon: ``Can you remember times when you were spontaneously centered and in touch with the Self?'' The author's strange amalgam of pseudo-scientific concepts, extraneous elements of Eastern religions, and strands of mysticism will undoubtedly have great appeal to many troubled, confused people trying to ``find themselves.''
