Rated 5 out of 5 by from A treasure trove of wisdom I consider myself a relatively well-balanced, informed and educated individual, but I learned so much from such a seemingly small book. Dr. Dick is a natural writer and immediately connects to the reader, bringing his observations to light in a way that draws the reader in, rather than preaching. It is brilliant in its simplicity and ability to reveal human nature and in its ability to reveal us, as readers, to ourselves. Things I thought I did well or understood...not so much. Things I've been doing intuitively without thinking about it ...who knew? This book is a light read and at the same time a daunting journey. Read the book. Get to know yourself and live a better life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome book! Excellent book! Dr. Dick takes the reader on a clearly laid out journey on what it takes to be healthy and live a life to the fullest of your abilities, all the while interjecting stories from patients along the way. Dr. Dick's style of writing makes it an easy book to not only dive deep into, but make you take breaks and ponder the unique insights into what was written . Read the entire book in 2 days and found myself not wanting it to end. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HEALING SATORI: THE PATH TO REAL HEALTHCARE Healing Satori, by Dr. Ken W. Dick There are self-help books, and then there’s Dr. Ken W. Dick’s Healing Satori. While most self-help books offer well-meaning advice on how to change our nature---an impossibility---Dr. Dick’s book shows us how to acknowledge our true nature, the foundation necessary to live a healthy physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual life. Ken Dick is a Doctor of Chiropractic Health, but his book is not a treatise on chiropractic technique. Nor is it an instruction manual. “Satori” in Zen Buddhism means “seeing into one’s true nature.” To guide the reader towards that goal, the book is divided into three sections: Awareness Awakening, Innate Insights, and Health Mastery. Each section contains short chapters called “kenshos”---the Japanese word that signals enlightenment towards a deeper understanding of one’s self. “The Healing Satori that I am about to share is satori that I have learned from my upbringing, from observation, and from having the experiential benefit of relating to over nine thousand patients,” Dr. Dick says in The Introduction, where he also makes the point that we often miss or ignore the obvious. “I am reminded daily in my work that patients need to be taught a logical basis of health.” Also, Healing Satori is not an “us” verses “them” polemic pitting alternative medicine against mainstream medicine. Dr. Dick acknowledges the crucial role of mainstream medicine in curing diseases. “Conventional, contemporary medicine is a superb disease management system, yet it is not a healthcare system,” he says. “It is essential to understand that there is a distinction between disease care and healthcare.” Each kensho begins with an insightful quote, which Dr. Dick elaborates on. All told there are thirty-four kenshos; one, coincidentally, for each year he has been in practice. From The Search, the first kensho, to The Purpose, the thirty-fourth kensho, Healing Satori is an enlightening read; a short book that imparts a deep understanding of real healthcare. If he were alive today, Prince Siddharta Gautami, the founder of Buddhism, would give this book a ringing endorsement.
