Journeys in Healing takes us into the lives of eight people who have suffered life-altering illness or disability.
In discovering how each of them has dealt with their condition, we learn not only how they have found something positive in adversity, but also how the process of healing can work in the face of even the greatest challenges.
The people interviewed here have experienced a range of afflictions, among them asthma, post-traumatic stress disorder, chronic fatigue syndrome and physical disabilities.
Their remarkable journeys contain profound lessons for those suffering from any illness—including cancer, stroke and heart attack— and help us appreciate how we can influence the process of our own healing.
Dr Shaun Matthews, an Australian medical practitioner who has also studied various forms of complementary medicine, draws on these people's experiences to argue that illness can create the opportunity for profound learning, and can help us become more whole as human beings.
Indeed, Dr Matthews shares his own journey of healing after a serious illness that had confounded medical diagnosis.
Journeys in Healing presents empowering and inspiring messages for all sufferers of disease and disability, and demonstrates the interconnectedness between physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.
