Product Details


“It is rare when a subject as difficult as illness is so thoroughly embodied that it becomes a gateway to the sacred. It is also exceptional when someone has the wisdom and skill to navigate the reader through that same portal. Peter Fernando’s book, Finding Freedom in Illness, does both with such clarity and skill that it leaves the reader determined to use his/her whole life for the same purpose.” -Rodney Smith, author of Stepping Out of Self-Deception and Awakening: A Paradigm Shift of the Heart 
Meditation, and Awakening, is generally linked to sitting upright for long stretches of time, despite the fact that all of us some of the time (and some of us much of the time) can’t physically manage to do so. This book, based on Peter’s field-work with his own chronic illness, addresses that conundrum. But it’s not just for ‘sick people’: we are all of the nature to sicken, and by taking that into account, we can develop a practice for the ‘bad’ times as well as the ‘good’.” –Ajahn Sucitto, author of Turning the Wheel of Truth
Finding Freedom in Illness is a beautiful book to read. Its simplicity and wisdom touches the heart and teaches the head to listen to the workings of the mind and open into our own thoughts and feelings with presence. The guided meditations can be used immediately to open heart and mind.  This is a book to keep beside you and to read and learn from again and again.”—Elana Rosenbaum, author of Being Well (Even When You’re Sick): Mindfulness Practices for People with Cancer and Other Serious Illnesses
