New York Times best-selling author Caroline Myss draws from her years as a medical intuitive to show that healing is not only physical; it is also a mystical phenomenon that transcends reason.

Inspired by ordinary people who overcame a wide array of physical and psychological ailments-from rheumatoid arthritis to cancer-Caroline dove into the works of the great mystics to gain a deeper understanding of healing's spiritual underpinnings. Based on these studies, she demonstrates how conventional and holistic medicine often fall short in times of need. Both systems rely upon a logical approach to curing illness when there is nothing reasonable about the emotional, psychological, or spiritual influences behind any ailment.

Integral to this mystical healing approach is the engagement of the soul, which we experience through exploring our seven shadow passions, building an empowered inner self around our seven inherent graces, and learning how to work with the mystical laws that govern it. This knowledge holds the key to understanding what it means to defy gravity and break through the boundaries of ordinary thought. You can heal any illness. You can channel grace. And you can learn to live fearlessly."

Caroline Myss has been in the field of energy medicine and human consciousness for 20 years.

She specializes in assisting people in understanding the emotional, psychological, and physical reason...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not her best... I have read 3 more book of her that I like very much, but this one felt short and cold... too much intellectualism, analyzing and compartmentalizing... oddly for a mystical subject she approach it in a very yang/masculine way... so it doesn't touch the heart and feel flat.

Editorial Reviews

It is rare that an author and teacher as accomplished and influential as Caroline Myss would, with each book, discover whole new vistas, and then report back to us with her legendary clarity and passion. With Defy Gravity she has done it again. Anyone in need of healing-healing from illness, anxiety, fear, or heartbreak-will find enormous help in this book. It is a tonic made of light and wisdom."- Elizabeth Lesser, co-founder, Omega Institute and author of Broken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow "In Defy Gravity , Caroline Myss offers a new model of transformation and healing that will shift how we perceive crisis and illness. A must-read." - Deepak Chopra, author of Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul "Caroline has been one of my most important spiritual teachers. In her new book, she continues to pierce both hearts and minds with arrows of truth."- Marianne Williamson, author of The Age of Miracles and Return to Love " Defy Gravity is a powerful look at the mystical aspects of the process of deep healing. The extraordinary Caroline Myss provides profound insights into the nature of illness and the healing miracles that can occur. What I love about Caroline is that she isn't afraid to make waves and go way beyond convention to create new paradigms of health."- Judith Orloff, M.D., author of Emotional Freedom "In this time of extraordinary evolutionary upheaval, Carolyn Myss offers a powerful and wise prescription for self-healing that transforms and empowers the reader to gain sovereignty over their physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing."- Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D., cell biologist and bestselling author of The Biology of Belief and Spontaneous Evolution "In Defy Gravity Caroline Myss goes far beyond conventional thinking to describe with precision those areas of experience, those mystical and mysterious events that ultimately account for illness. I found this book to be extraordinarily intelligent and perceptive in charting ways to go deep into the soul to glimpse those faint issues that grow into large problems."- Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul and Writing in the Sand "When Caroline Myss comes out with another book, like her new one, Defy Gravity , we always run out and immediately buy it. Why? Because like no other author, Myss invariably manages to help us reach yet, an even higher level of understanding of how to heal. Run, don't walk, and buy this book." - Mona Lisa Schulz, M.D., Ph.D., author of The Intuitive Advisor: A Psychic Doctor Teaches You How To Solve Your Most Pressing Health Problems "In this book, Caroline Myss reminds us that, while we should be grateful for the gift of reason, we should also be aware that the mystery and holiness of life cannot be found in the dim light of reason alone. As Defy Gravity makes clear, the mystics teach that there is in each of us the capacity for mystical experience that transcends reason. Each chapter of this book echoes with the expansive energy of mystical awakening and offers ways we can cultivate this awakening in our lives."- James Finley, Ph.D., author of Christian Meditation and The Contemplative Heart "
