What is Attitudinal Healing?
The first time I heard about A Course in Miracles was after reading a little paperback book called Love is Letting Go of Fear written by Gerald (Jerry) Jampolsky MD, a child, and adult psychiatrist. It was such a simple book yet it deeply resonated with me and soon I felt inspired to go purchase the 3 volume hardcover edition of A Course in Miracles.
Some months ago, I felt inspired to listen to an interview with Dr. Jerry Jampolsky and his wife, Dr. Diane Cirincione, a therapist and psychologist. I was feeling ready to release my current job yet I still needed clarity regarding what my next steps were in terms of where I wanted to devote my time and energy. I listened to Diane speak about Jerry’s book, Love is Letting Go of Fear, and how it has sold millions of copies worldwide. In 1975, Jerry established the first Center for Attitudinal Healing in California and Diane joined Jerry in 1981. Over the last 30-plus years, they have worked cross-culturally in 54 countries together and are the recipients of numerous international, humanitarian awards. In 2005, Dr. Jampolsky also received the AMA Pride in the Profession Award. There are now over 100 independent centers and groups located in thirty-three countries on five continents that offer free attitudinal healing services to children and adults facing challenging situations including sickness, life-threatening illness, and other relationship and caregiver issues.
