At fifteen Sara Chetkin received a devastating diagnosis. She had a severe scoliosis, a curvature of the spine that caused debilitating back pain and would eventually lead to deformity and possible loss of mobility. Little did she know, this diagnosis would also lead to a life of profound healings and spiritual awakening.
As an adolescent she ignored her back and tried to live her life as if it didn’t exist. But as years passed she began to realize the extent to which this disease had controlled her life, influencing all of her life-decisions and shaping the way she perceived the world and her place in it. Determined to heal herself, she embarked on a physical journey, traveling around the world, seeking healing for both body and soul. Along the way she had many encounters with healers and shamans, including a psychic surgeon in Brazil, a Maori healer in New Zealand, and a Sicilian Tui Na practitioner in West Virginia.
As she traveled she began to understand that her healing would never begin until she removed all of the deceptions and illusions with which she had surrounded herself. She would have to learn to approach life and the universe with true humility.
While her travels in the physical world continued, the author experienced rich and powerful inner journeys as well - journeys in which awareness expanded into complete understanding and acceptance of the universe and her place in it. From these spiritual moments she experienced the power of surrender and the true bliss that comes from letting go of fear. The foundation of her healing process was the acknowledgement that fear entraps and entangles, ultimately blinding us to our limiting beliefs and behaviors.
Honest and satisfying, The Healing Curve is the quest for a joyful life in which we can embrace all that is learned along the way. “My search for healing has enlivened me. It has blessed me with a hunger for revelation: the uncovering of the sacred within me.” The Healing Curve is a journey that anyone can take. It is a journey within that, when accompanied by humility and a willingness to surrender old beliefs, can bring happiness and peace to your life.
