What if it were possible to tap into and activate your innate wisdom to bring about natural healing? To gradually awaken to your inner power with its ability to overcome suffering can ease the pain of physical disabilities such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, and congenital misalignments of the body. It can lead the way to overcoming the emotional and psychological pain associated with anxiety, depression, and the major and minor frustrations that we all face in our world today. As we work and struggle to make ends meet, we fill our minds with false beliefs and tell ourselves that everything will be perfect when: I get a new job, meet a new mate, pay off my house, or the kids go to college. We keep trodding along with ancient and warped priorities spending too much time at work, overeating, avoiding connections with others, and believing that if we just keep doing what we're doing, but try harder, that things will change for the better. Unfortunately these behaviors will not lead to a balanced life, but the realization that our lives are out of balance and less than fulfilling, though unexpected and confusing, can become the door to newfound freedom and a life rich in both meaning and passion. If you hunger for positive change and have the courage to drop the helpless and victim mentalities, with the institution of a regular meditation and/or yoga practice each one of us will move closer to our true needs and our right place in society. The intellectual and emotional clarity made possible through regular practice will bring all aspects of life into balance for those who persist. Book and jacket design and layout by Marcia Karasoff John J. Inzerillo, a practicing medical oncologist for over fifteen years, has offered many patients cutting-edge therapies through cooperative oncology groups sponsored by the National Cancer Institute. Through his participation in clinical trials, he has contributed to the clinical data base on the treatment of such cancers as breast, colon, lung, prostate, lymphoma, and leukemia. In the treatment and management of cancer Doctor Inzerillo is receptive to the use of complementary therapies such as mindfulness training, yoga, meditation, and prayer. As a result of his ten years of meditation and yoga training he has developed techniques that facilitate personal balance and help bring mental and physical restoration to the workplace, home environment, and interpersonal encounters. In the clinical arena, he has written mentoring articles for medical students stressing the importance of presence and compassion while caring for those in need. Volunteering his time as a restorative yoga instructor for his patients and their caregivers has been a privilege for Doctor Inzerillo. He successfully guides them though the challenges of anxiety, depression, frustration, and pain associated with illness. He balances these efforts and energies by enjoying time with his wife and two sons.
