Wellness is one of the most talked-about buzz words of our time, applied to health care, food, lifestyle, environment, and spirituality. But what is wellness, why does it matter, and how can we find it?

Author S. J. Spiegel-a lung cancer survivor, lawyer, and scholar-explores the word and its historic significance in Heart of Wellness: A Short History of a New Age, and he discovers its unexpected, paradigm-shifting meaning. Along the way, he shows how caring for others benefits your own well-being and how science finally reconnects with spirituality in a New Age, transforming our understanding of the universe and our place in it.

Spiegel mixes his own memoirs with true stories of history to explain the wellness movement and its relevance today, giving you the tools you need to change the very way you think, and pursue better health and wholeness.
