Donna Hamil Talman is a psychotherapist with an interest in the mind/body connection that predated her diagnosis with lupus erythematosus, an auto-immune disease which affects many more women than men. Her desire to find a greater meaning in her illness and recovery, and to discover why she developed an auto-immune disease (in which the body reacts against its own tissue), led her to examine the ways in which unresolved and unexamined feelings could influence her health. This is an inspiring book for anyone confronting illness, with special meaning for those with an auto-immune disorder.
Donna Hamil Talman is a psychotherapist specializing in Gestalt, bioenergetics and transpersonal psychology. She lives with her husband and son in Worchester, Massachusetts.
"Rarely have I read a book about a peprsonal challenge of illness that is as exquisitely written as this one. I applaud Donna Hamil Talman and her talent."
- Norman Cousins
"Heartsearch is an honest story of one individual's search for an understanding of why she developed lupus erythematosus, an autoimmune disease. Her search became a voyage of self-discovery in the course of which she discovered the source of her body's healing energies."
- Alexander Lowen, M.D.
