Intention, the first KEY TO HEALING

January 3, 2010

Healer Who Creates,  Cay Randall-May, Ph.D.

In my new book,”Healing and the Creative Response” (Brooks Goldmann Publ., 2010), I describe four key steps to healing which are common to many different modalities.   Intention is the first step.   Rothlyn Zahourek, Ph.D., has published her definitive study, “Intentionality: The Matrix of Healing..A qualitative Theory for Research, Education and Practice” which I will be writing more about in the near future.  After researching the topic from the point of view of both the healer and healee she has concluded that aside from the general intention of well-being there are two major levels of intentionality in healing:  the first promotes curing and restoration of equilibrium; the second catalyzes transformation on multiple levels.  After reading Dr. Zahourek’s book I am convinced that the four keys to healing which I describe in my book relate to this last level.  If followed correctly, the four keys definitely promote improved self-expression and creativity.

Intention, the First Step to Healing

January 3, 2010

In my new book, “Healing and the Creative Response” (Brooks Goldmann Publ., 2010) I outline and describe in detail four key steps which are common to many forms of natural and spiritual healing. The first of these steps is to set our intention.
In her new book, “Intentionality: The Matrix of Healing” Rothlyn Zahourek, Ph.D. explores many aspects of the subject from the point of view of healers and healees. This work is certain to remain the definite authority on this subject for many years. She describes two different levels of intentionality, one which aims to facilitate curing through various modalities and approaches and the second one which catalyzes personal and interpersonal transformation.
As I read Dr. Zahourek’s book I recognized many instances of how the four key steps to healing which I describe in my book apply to her research, as well.
I can highly recommend her book to anyone who would like to learn more about the influence of intentionality on the process of healing.
