Brandon Bays is probably the most dynamic and innovative teacher in
the field of mind-body healing today. Brandon is known for her warmth,
caring and spontaneous humour. Her work is
inspirational and joyous, with a profound wisdom and a depth of knowledge
born of an exceptional background in the field.
Over the last 20 years. Brandon has become highly trained in all types
of personal development, always at the cutting edge of mind-body healing.
Her expertise includes Psycho Neuro Immunology (PNI), Neuro-Linguistic
Programming (NLP), Neuro-Associative Conditioning (NAC), acupressure,
kinesiology, iridology and nutrition, among many others.
In 1992 Brandon was diagnosed with a tumour which healed in only six
and a half weeks without drugs or surgery. From her personal experience
she pioneered a unique process called The Journey, which helps people
to experience profound emotional and physical healing at a cellular
The Journey Intensive is now recognised internationally as one of the
most powerful healing processes available.
Nearly 10 years ago, Bays was diagnosed with a basketball-sized
tumor in her uterus, which was causing internal bleeding. While her
surgeon advised immediate removal, Bays, an alternative health-care
worker, persuaded the doctor to allow her to try natural methods to
reduce the size of the tumor. Bays, already reasonably well versed in
relaxation techniques and homeopathic medicine, immediately sought out
various noninvasive treatments including vitamins, a radical change
in diet, massage and various other emotional and physical therapies.
Miraculously, within a few months, the tumor disappeared.
This dramatic recovery motivated Bays to change her life and teach others
her healing practices. It was a difficult time for her; her husband
of many years announced he was having an affair and eventually married
his girlfriend. However, Bays rarely dwells on the negative; when she's
angry, she admits it but manages to put her anger toward something productive.
Like Deepak Chopra, on whose
teaching her method is based, Bays wants people to focus on what she
calls The Journey - a path, she claims, to freedom and accomplishment
that consists primarily of emotional reckoning and relaxation techniques.
Bays' optimism will appeal to readers who are weary of traditional treatments
that don't relieve emotional or physical hardships.

that includes step-by-step do-it-yourself instructions.
In 1992, Bays, then a trainer and seminar leader for the exuberant self-improvement
promoter Tony Robbins, was diagnosed
with a large uterine tumor, which she believes she made vanish through
a self-healing process. She subscribed to Deepak Chopra's belief that
emotional memories are stored in the body's cells, and she set about
finding out what unresolved emotional memories were causing her tumor.
She quickly arranged for a "simple neuro-linguistic mind-body healing
process," followed by "some good massage bodywork," "cranial-visceral" massage therapy, colon therapy, meditation, and more therapeutic massage-all
while following a strict fresh-fruit-and-raw-vegetable diet. Guided
by a massage therapist, she took an imaginary journey to her tumor and
confronted the bad memories stored there. Within weeks the tumor was
no longer detectable.
Here, she not only describes her own experience and the remarkable outcomes
of others she has guided on internal journeys but describes just how
to do it with a good friend's help in the privacy of one's home. For
Bays at least, the side effects have been beneficial: when, in rapid
succession, her house burned down, her husband left her, the IRS pursued
her, and her daughter announced she wanted no further contact with her,
the positive-thinking Bays was able to see it all as "somehow a gift
Mind-body healing ... delivered with unremitting enthusiasm.
