What if you could use cancer to evolve more fully into love?

David Maginley has been there – four times. His cancer led to a near-death experience and a career helping thousands face this disease. Through profound storytelling, David brings you to the core of the cancer journey to discover the hero within. In Beyond Surviving, you will learn how to:
- Turn the mind into an ally as you grapple with uncertainty.
- Improve spiritual health through your love, rather than your belief.
- Not only go through cancer, but grow through cancer.
Imagine becoming a warrior of compassion who uses cancer to forge meaning in suffering, heal the heart and amplify life. Beyond Surviving guides you to use the crisis for conscious creation of something even greater than survival.

Editorial Reviews

At his best, Maginley is breathtaking, writing powerful, deeply true, moving stuff. The result of his multi-faceted background is a uniquely grounded mix of pragmatism and deep spirituality, producing a book which has the makings of a classic. Highly recommended.Nancy Evans Bush, MA, author of Dancing Past the Dark: Distressing Near-Death Experiences and The Buddha in Hell and Other Alarms: Perspectives on Distressing Near-Death Experiences"Brilliant! Wise! Compassionate! And surprisingly funny!!! This book captures all the attributes and wisdom of a talented and very caring hospital chaplain. David's teachings are simple but powerful - and applicable to anyone at any stage of life's journey. If you want to tap into the body-mind-spirit connection and facilitate healing at the deepest levels in your life, Read This Book."Dr. Rob Rutledge MD, Oncologist, Associate Professor, Dalhousie University, and co-founder of The Healing and Cancer Foundation."... a really lovely and unique book, filled with spiritual insights and obviously a work of love. David Maginley has beautifully conveyed the profound role a hospital chaplain plays in patient care, and done so with deep empathy because he's actually been there - on both sides of the veil! Masterfully created, informative, insightful and deeply engaging!"Dr. Penny Sartori, author of The Wisdom of Near-Death Experiences: How Understanding NDEs Can Help Us Live More FullyDavid Maginley infuses his sophisticated understanding of theology, philosophy, modern physics and consciousness research with a loving and compassionate concern for the many patients whose stories of living and dying he relates.Alastair Cunningham, O.C., Ph.D. Professor Emeritus of Medical Biophysics, University of Toronto, author of The Healing Journey and Can the mind heal cancer?
