This book brings into focus the wide variety of emerging information on energy medicine, and explores mechanisms by which mind and body processes influence the body's healing and performance potential. The author draws on information from an extraordinary range of sources - from physiology and biophysics, to examples drawn from the realms of spontaneous healing, cutting edge athletic and artistic performance, the martial arts, and various contemplative and spiritual practices.
In this book, the author focuses on the roles of electrons, electromagnetic fields, and related energetic and quantum processes, the properties of space, and consciousness itself.
