Why should we meditate? How can crystals heal the mind and body? Why is visualisation so powerful – and so effective? 

Discover the scientific evidence to answer these questions and more...

Scientist Dr David Hamilton has been studying the mind-body connection and the power of thought for years, finding compelling evidence of why and how alternative therapies can and do work. 

In his trademark warm and conversational tone, he will explain the science and spirituality behind some of today's most popular alternative practices. 

He explores four key aspects of healing:

  • Physical: the mind-body connection and how belief affects the body
  • Emotional: how emotions are stored in your body and the link between suppressed emotions and disease
  • Energetic: how healing, reiki and crystals can be used to heal
  • Consciousness: prayer, distant healing and modern scientific and philosophical ideas surrounding consciousness
