From the Prologue
“These chronicles mix physics, medicine, hypnotherapy, technology, culture, learning, politics, and the news surrounding the Coronavirus from March through June of 2020. This is the first phase of the pandemic, before the expected second infection, and before any vaccine…
“The situation cannot be understood without considering the chaotic forces and policies that formed it. There is no ‘one story’; no one authoritative point of view; no single, resolving explanation…
“Much of what becomes evident has been brewing for years—maybe centuries—hidden in policies, bureaucracies, attitudes, economies, cultures, ecological injury, and other dynamics whose combustible elements were either segregated, inactive, unrecognized or mutating toward this trigger point.”
COVID-19: Illness & Illumination is a well-researched and important contribution at this time. It is vital that this much-needed information reaches the public. What makes this book even more special is that the author combines his research with his knowledge and experience as a professional hypnotherapist.
