Joan Borysenko has authored and co-authored several books, including the bestselling “Minding the Body, Mending the Mind,” “Your Soul’s Compass,” and “It’s Not the End of the World: Developing Resilience in Times of Change.” At the age of 10, Joan experienced 6 months of an alternate reality, what modern psychiatry would label a psychosis and obsessive compulsive disorder. But one day, while praying fervently for help, all fear and confusion parted to reveal a luminous reality of exquisite love, surpassing peace, and practical wisdom and an almost instantaneous recovery. This journey birthed a lifelong fascination with healing, the roots of consciousness, and the realm of spirit. Later, she received a doctorate from Harvard Medical School, where she subsequently completed postdoctoral fellowships in cancer cell biology, psychoneuroimmunology, and behavioral medicine. Weaving together biology, psychology, and spirituality in a credible, accessible way is her soul's purpose.
