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 level.

The Journey Intensive is now recognised internationally as one of the most powerful healing processes available.

Publishers Weekly:

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.

Kirkus Reviews:

An ebullient first-person account of an alternative healing experience 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 from God."

Mind-body healing ... delivered with unremitting enthusiasm.
