Banyen's Description: 

As the meaning and scope of “medicine” deepens, more gifted healers are finding their voices. Judith Orloff is a psychiatrist and clairvoyant with extraordinary and refreshing stories to tell of her journey, of coming to terms with her “gifts of the spirit,” and many roadtested suggestions to help us discover our psychic gifts. What makes this book unique is that Orloff maintains a thriving camp in both worlds: that of UCLA psychiatric professor and medical doctor and that of “second sight,” clairvoyance, telepathy and psychic gifts; and she tells it like she lives it.

 First published in 1996 and now re-issued with a new introduction, Second Sight is remarkable for Orloff’s honesty about her own experiences and her insight into the cultivation of intuition, dreams, psychic impressions, healing, and community. This book might give some halting readers the courage to embrace their own gifts, their individuality, and their unconditional compassion.

In poignant stories of lovers, parents, and patients, she gives important lessons in the deep ties that link intuition and community, intimate knowledge and love. Through her own example, she teaches us to trust the less rational certainties of the heart.

The personal, authentic touch that runs through this book will engage many readers, and offers many keys to recognizing psychic experiences, exercises to awaken clairvoyant capacities, helpful material on dream interpretation, and skillful challenges to reexamine one’s assumptions about the mind, about healing, and about human capacities.

“One of those rare books that has the potential to create shock waves and revolutions within a profession... Dr. Judith Orloff is describing the future of medicine and psychiatry, as well as the human race. An inspiring, lofty statement from a very courageous physician.” —Larry Dossey, author of Healing Words

Among Judith Orloff’s other titles are Emotional Freedom and Positive Energy.
