What Is Included?

Research about emotions, beliefs, attitudes—about brain function—and immune response is proving to us that, in fact, being able to imagine is key! Because humans process their subjective experience, in part, as pictures, when someone says, “I just cannot see how I will get through all of this,” according to Dr. Emmett E. Miller, author of Deep Healing: The Essence of Mind/Body Medicine, we are not just hearing words, we may well be witnessing destiny. Miller’s work shows clearly how beliefs and images become actual physical events in the body. You will have a comprehensive understanding of the importance of the use of guided imagery, along with proven techniques for both general and specific applications, and directed practice using guided imagery for surgical support and other medical procedures.
