Native American healers expect miracles and prepare in all ways possible or them to occur. In modern medicine, miraculous recoveries are discarded from studies as anomalous cases that will taint the otherwise orderly results. Yet this small group of "miracle" patients has everything to teach us about healing and survival. Coyote Healing distills the common elements in miracle cures to help people start their own healing journey. Looking at a hundred cases of individuals who experienced miracle cures and examining the energies, attributes, and teachings implicit within the Four Directions and how they relate to mind-body healing, Dr. Mehl-Madrona reveals that survivors found purpose and meaning in their life-threatening illness; peaceful acceptance was key to their healing. Coyote Healing also tells of another kind of miracle- finding faith, hope, and serenity even when a cure seems impossible.
