Zbooks Amazing Insights: Interview with Dr.Bernie Siegel
Dr.Bernie Siegel's resume and life experience is longer than Sigmund Freud's and Carl Jung's combined! It was an honor to interview him and ask him ANY questions I wanted. MIND BLOWING INSIGHTS!

The radiologist however treated people for ONE MONTH with the "empty" machine. They all improved as if they had been treated with a normal working machine!!! Listen in to this interview for one JAW DROPPER after another! *FAVORITE QUOTE* "Consciousness can be experienced as a universal field that affects us all, and studies by quantum physicists have verified this." *TRANSCRIPT:* http://www.befreud.com/ BOOKS MENTIONED: 1.)
