Dr. Bernie Siegel has touched many lives over many years. He reached national and then international attention when he began talking about patient empowerment. Bernie practiced general medicine and pediatric surgery before his retirement in 1989. He is the author of several books on the relationship between the patient and the healing process as it manifests throughout one's life.

In his latest book entitled A Book of Miracles - Inspiring True Stories of Healing, Gratitude, and Love, Bernie is described in the Foreword written by Deepak Chopra who tells us "Bernie Siegel began his writing career twenty-five years ago, and from the outset he didn't shy away from miracles. The title of his first book—Love, Medicine & Miracles (1986)—flaunted his disagreement with mainstream medicine. An MD who advised more love as a path to healing would have been in enough trouble. Opening the possibility of miracles was grounds for dismissal. In his new book, Bernie reaffirms his original beliefs, and with a lifetime's wisdom and experience, he trusts in miracles more than ever."

Bernie's writings reflect his passion to reach people struggling with all of life's challenges—not just the physical ones—so that each person can live life fully with the understanding that, as Bernie reminds us, "We only have today." Believing that we are all here to love one another, Bernie has crafted eternal truths and the timeless wisdom of the ages into his reflections on the true stories of his patients in much of his work.

In 1978, nearly a decade before retirement, Bernie launched EcaP -- Exceptional Cancer Patients. ECaP is a therapeutic approach Bernie calls Carefrontation that helps patients interpret their drawings, dreams and images to express their feelings about the healing process. The physical, spiritual, and psychological benefits that emerge strengthen the immune system, a direct response to the power of the Mind-Body Connection about which Bernie has written and spoken extensively. He is currently working on other books with the goal of empowering patients and teaching survival behavior to enhance immune system competency. Bernie believes that in the next decade, the roles of consciousness, spirituality, non-local healing, body memory, and heart energy will all be explored more intensively as scientific subjects.

In May 2011, Bernie was honored by the Watkins Review of London, England, as one of the Top 20 Spiritually Influential Living People on the Planet. He continues to break new ground in the field of healing, supporting changes in medical education to "humanize" medical practice.
