Publisher's Summary

A guide to the 60,000-year-old healing system of the Aborigines revealed through one man’s journey to overcome multiple sclerosis

  • Written at the request of the Aboriginal people with whom the author stayed
  • Explores the use of Dreamtime, spirit guides, and telepathy to discover and reprogram the subconscious motivations, thought patterns, and beliefs behind illness 
  • Reveals how to tap in to healing support through the body/mind/spirit connection 
  • Nautilus Silver Medal Winner and ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year finalist 

In 1983, award-winning physicist Gary Holz was diagnosed with chronic progressive multiple sclerosis. By 1988, he was a quadriplegic. Then, in 1994, his doctors told him he had two years to live. Desperate and depressed, he followed a synchronistic suggestion and went to Australia to live with a remote Aboriginal tribe. Arriving in a wheelchair, alone, with almost no feeling left from the neck down, Holz embarked on a remarkable healing transformation of body, mind, and spirit and discovered his own gift for healing others. 

Written at the request of the Aboriginal healers Holz worked with, this book reveals the beliefs and principles of the 60,000-year-old healing system of the Aborigines of Australia, the world’s oldest continuous culture. Chronicling the step-by-step process that led to his miraculous recovery, he explains the role played by thought in the creation of health or disease and details the five essential steps in the Aboriginal healing process. He explores the use of Dreamtime, spirit guides, and telepathy to discover and reprogram the subconscious motivations behind illness—a process that enacts healing at the cellular and the soul level, where the root of physical illness is found. 

Supported by modern science, including quantum physics, Aboriginal medicine enables each of us to tap in to healing support through the power of the body/mind/spirit connection.

Critic Reviews

"What so many of us seek is not more information but guided wisdom that resonates with a deep place in our soul. One of love, nurturing, and truth that acts as another breadcrumb on the path to our true selves and healing at all levels. Robbie and Gary Holz’s footsteps on this sacred journey are what they share with readers in this book and in their work." (Rik Roberts, psychologist and retired journalist)

Secrets of Aboriginal Healing is more than a manual for understanding Aboriginal healing secrets. It is an inspiring memoir that provides an immediate soul-healing to anyone who reads it.” (Robert Simmons, Metaguide Magazine/Heaven & Earth Publishing, January 2014) 

"Secrets of Aboriginal Healing demonstrates how - against all odds - an ordinary human being can participate in their own healing process and move from extreme illness to high-level wellness. A must read for anyone who wants to gain freedom from disease and other challenging circumstances." (Marilyn McGuire, founder of Nautilus Book Awards)

Curious...

As a Warrungnu woman, Aboriginal is not an appropriate way for this author to talk about where they've got this information from. The tribe would have a name.. respectfully they should be referred to by tribe name. Also it would help with legitimacy... it sounds good to say Aboriginal healing but not disclose who would A) give you authority to share this information and B) who these people are. If these people have helped you so much.. the least you can do is show proper respect.

Did he really go to Australia?

I think some of the general messages in this book are very useful but as an Australian I was left wondering if this actually authentic.
For starters 15 or even 50 mins out of Brisbane in any direction does not get you to ‘rock and sand’ that’s more like 5 hours. And cows are scarce? Sorry, what? All agricultural areas in any direction from Brisbane have cattle. But what irks me the most is that the acknowledgments didn’t even acknowledge the aboriginal people! There was no acknowledgement of country- nothing. How do we know or verify this guy isn’t just another white guy ripping off a culture for a ‘better self help story’? Maybe it’s true but I’m left with a lot of questions.

Nothing to do with aboriginal healing

This audiobook has nothing to do with aboriginal healing. It is not authentic. Would not recommend.

Great over view on healing

Highly recommend this book to anyone dealing with physical illness but also emotional issues. I don't think much of it has to do with aboriginal healing, still gives a great insight into there live and some of there old ways .

Disappointing

I understand this book was written some time ago, but it’s disappointing that proper respect and honour wasn’t given to the country and people in which the author received so much healing from. It feels as if the author received so much, gained skills and went on to practice healing on others which he no doubt profited from. However, I have Not been able to see that he or his foundation provided remuneration for the help and training he was given. There is no mention of giving back, raising awareness or even real gratitude to the people who clearly gave him so much. The best he has done is given the label ‘Aboriginal’ which completely dismisses the country and people he is referring to. Unless secrecy and confidentiality was specifically requested, this whole book feels ignorant and dismissive. If the author felt so connected to the people and culture, I hope he made an effort of repayment in the years he profited from their knowledge, like proceeds from book sales at least. The writing was mediocre and author sounded self indulgent. Overall, really disappointing.

The most inspirational and transformative book ever.

Words cannot describe how powerful this book was to me. A book to activate awakening to our true selves. I am grateful for all that I also learnt about these Indigenous people. I feel blessed.

Healing is accurate, depictions of Australia, not

Due to the extreme racism and inaccurate depictions of my country in the introduction l almost didn't continue. The healing stuff is mostly accurate, though.
Australia-home to the largest cattle station in the world. We eat beef. Our indigenous people are highly intelligent and just like all other human beings..
