Book Resources – Overcoming A Mysterious Condition

Here are some resources I have listed in my book, Overcoming A Mysterious Condition. These are the main ones I have come to know in my life and healing. There are many others which are most likely helpful. I may add to this list from time to time as I remember or discover other places that help in the mind body healing connection.


A couple of the CD’s I mentioned as book resources include my companion CD of guided meditations relating to specific sections of the book. Another one is the Songs For The Inner Child and The Fear Poem, both of which are mentioned in Overcoming A Mysterious Condition.

  • Companion CD
    Mind Body Meditation Exercises – Companion CD to this book resource.
  • Songs For The Inner Child
    CD By Shaina Noll – I used these songs to help me convince myself that I was more than I could see.
  • The Fear Poem
    Poem By Joy Harjo – One of the best poems I know that has helped my healing journey in ways that are hard to describe.

Therapy And Therapists

I am extremely happy to add these two therapists as book resources. I’ve worked extensively with Dr. Canali as has Jim Fazio. Both are excellent therapists.

  • Integrative Bodywork
    Website of Jim Fazio, LMT, CSI, UTP. – A wealth of information on trauma, pain, and anxiety as Jim incorporates Unified Therapy™ into his healing practice.
