Distant Healing
A Complete Guide
How to Send Healing to People, Animals, the Environment, and Around the World

by Jack Angelo

      Teacher and healer Jack Angelo has produced an outstanding and detailed audio course for those who "have a natural urge to heal others."  Distant Healing is built upon the theory that it isn’t necessary to be in close physical proximity to send healing energies.

While it may sound far-fetched, there is a scientific background to the practice. In quantum physics, a phenomenon known as ‘non-locality’ shows that what is experienced by one particle is instantaneously known and reacted to by a twin particle which is in another location.  Experiments performed on live cells from a single person that are separated by many miles have proven that whatever is experienced by a cell in one location has an immediate effect on the other cells.

This is certainly not a new concept. Energy healing has been practiced with great success for thousands of years by traditional healers. Healing prayer is a practice in which the faithful engage every day. In Distant Healing, Jack Angelo provides a structure for learning or for enhancing the skills and use of this ancient practice.

This course provides a solid background for those who want to pursue the path of the compassionate healer. Angelo begins by explaining where the ability to heal comes from, what it is and the many uses for it. He also addresses some aspects of the practice that aren’t often discussed elsewhere, such as the ethics of healing without the target’s knowledge and how to avoid depleting the healer’s own energy in the process.

The bulk of the course, however, is devoted to practical exercises that lead to more focused ability. Disc Two is dedicated to Body Energies and Baseline Practices, and prepares the practitioner for healing with exercises of attunement. Disc Four, Animals, Plants, and the Environment, spells out specific exercises for communing with other species in order to share healing energy with them. Other sessions in the course provide instruction for group work, which may be required when sending healing energy to a large number of targets—for instance, the victims of a natural disaster.

"Our time calls for new forms of action and commitment," says Angelo, a teacher and healer with almost 30 years of experience in the field. He has worked with the National Federation of Spiritual healers as well as Native American medicine teachers. "Distant healers dedicate their work to the light," he tells us. "...they are effectively proclaiming, ‘Let there be light!’" Distant Healing sheds plenty of light on this ancient technique for sharing curative energy. This is an ideal introduction for those who want to learn how to begin, but is also an excellent resource for experienced healers of any tradition.
