Originally published as a single volume, The Heart of Listening has been re-issued as two separate volumes because of public demand for a more concise, portable edition. Milne, a third generation Scottish osteopath, begins by explaining the visionary approach to healing, and how it may be applied to the realm of craniosacral work. He explains the importance of meditation, centering, and the cultivation of heartfulness in the development of compassionate practice. Milne introduces the reader to the story of visionary work—its genesis, evolution, philosophy, and practice—and explains how a grounding in meditation, sensitive touch, and intuitive perception can lead to a remarkable unfoldment in skill development.
"The Heart of Listening, a welcome book to those of us teaching in this field that is so difficult to put into words, embodies the uniqueness of its author, who offers a rare combination of being a highly skilled healing practitioner and biomedical." -Don Hanlon Johnson, Ph.D., Director of Somatics Program, California Institute of Integral Studies
"A wonder of a book. So many wisdoms and books within books. A book for all people." -Betty Balcombe, Visionary Healer and Author of As I See It and The Energy Connection
"The Heart of Listening is an impeccable work that demonstrates the healing and teaching power found in the human physical structure. Milne provides profound psycho-spiritual insights and makes a significant contribution to physicians, health professionals, and individuals who seek ways to understand the unlimited resource of healing found within the human body." -Angeles Arrien, Ph.D., Cultural Anthropologist and Author of The Four-Fold Way and Signs of Life
