Dr. Bernie Siegel, M.D.

"Absolutely everything that happens in our lives has a spiritual cause. Mental, emotional and physical events are only effects. Your body has a healing order of priority, and the spiritual always comes first. Your body stores your life's memories. When you focus on what is wrong you wound your body and empower your enemy. When you focus on life and living, miracles happen."

Bernie's writings in the 12 books he has published so far reflect his passion to reach people struggling with all of life's challenges—not just the physical ones—so that each person can live life fully with the understanding that, as Bernie reminds us, "We only have today". Believing that we are all here to love one another, Bernie has crafted eternal truths and the timeless wisdom of the ages into his reflections on the true stories of his patients in much of his work.

In May 2011, Bernie was honored by the Watkins Review of London, England, as one of the Top 20 Spiritually Influential Living People on the Planet.
