Summary
  • The first book of its kind, A Thousand Miles in the Rain is a fascinating exploration of our desire to re-spiritualize medicine and a thought-provoking consideration of the history and metaphysics of healing. It delves into our compulsion to attach meaning to disease, and ranges across the dialectics of the mind-body problem to probe the mysterious healing role of faith, energy, and other elusive phenomena (see chapter entitled "Bludgeoning the Ineffable")
  • In the pages of this lyrical, scholarly book, readers will encounter scientists, seekers, psychiatrists, philosophers, physicians, healers, patients, purveyors of the paranormal, and a gallery of gurus, goddesses, and spirit guides. Throughout it is leavened with genuine humor and truly breathtaking feats of writing. Chip Brown, recipient of more than a dozen journalistic prizes, including the National Magazine Award for feature writing, uses intrepid reportage, painstaking research, and a keen, nimble intelligence to investigate the so-called "spiritual crisis" in modern medicine. He is an original, sublimely eloquent first-person guide to this thousand-mile journey through the terra incognita of healing and the mind. Notes
