The Healing Journey is a program for people who want to learn how to help themselves when they have cancer. It is a practical course, providing simple but proven psychological and spiritual tools that promote inner harmony, peace and healing, methods that can help any of us become a “healed person”.
Since 1982, the program has been developed and researched at a large cancer treatment and research centre. Published research on the Healing Journey, together with the research of other scientists, shows that using these methods regularly can significantly diminish anxiety and depression, restore a sense of control, and relieve symptoms like fatigue, nausea, and pain.
There is also published evidence that when people with advanced cancers get very involved with helping themselves psychologically and spiritually they may live longer than medically predicted. Many factors are involved with these findings, and not all are well understood. Although extended life cannot be guaranteed, ongoing research will hopefully one day shed more light on this possibility.
Many of the resources used in the in-centre Healing Journey program are provided here for download, for you to practice at home.
