"Memory in Our Bones is a bold, inspiring exploration of the nature of consciousness that goes far beyond our ordinary assumptions. Ms. Burke shows that consciousness is not limited or confined to our brains, or to the here and now, but is unlimited. We cannot be truly healthy unless this realization becomes real for each of us".
Larry Dossey, MD — HEALING BEYOND THE BODY, HEALING WORDS, REINVENTING MEDICINE and RECOVERING THE SOUL
"Each of us has a story, written on the body. What do these stories mean? How do we unlock memory and trauma from deep within our cells, releasing the stories that no longer serve us? Drawing on years of research in science, spirituality, psycho-energetic and somatic studies from Buddhist, Taoist and Shamanist traditions, Memory in Our Bonesgives us the tools, courage, and inspiration to re-write our own life stories from a place of compassion and empowerment. This book is riveting. I recommend it highly to any bodyworker, healer, or human being who wishes to open up to greater joy and vitality in an embodied, transcendent way."

"Everything we need to heal is within us ‘in the silent spaciousness of our innermost being’ if we can just slow down, be fully present, and listen to our intuitive wisdom. Based on the author's own transformative experiences, Memory in Our Bonesoffers a unique approach to healing that taps this powerful source of wisdom —and joy— within ourselves."
Alexandra Kennedy, Author —THE INFINITE THREAD: HEALING RELATIONSHIPS BEYOND LOSS and LOSING A PARENT
"In Memory in Our Bones, H. Elizabeth Burke gives her readers a unique synthesis of information from several fields (notably metaphor, narrative, and memory) that they may utilize for self-healing purposes. As medicine enters the age of information, many patients have assumed greater responsibility for their own health care. Memory in Our Bones does not attempt to limit the role of physicians, but supplements their work with patient-directed exercises using imagery and the mind-body connection."

Memory is no longer found just in the brain. It also lives in our bones. Larry Dossey, MD, one of the world’s foremost authorities on the synergy of physical health and spiritual awareness, says, “ Burke shows that consciousness is not limited or confined to our brains, or to the here and now, but is unlimited. We cannot be truly healthy unless this realization becomes real for each of us.”
Such awareness flies in the face of the fact that most people cope with life’s upsets by trying not to think about them, the “old out of sight, out of mind” technique. Problem solved, right? Not so, says author and creator of the Transforming Embodiment method and practice. In her groundbreaking book Memory in Our Bones: Exploring the Mysteries of Mind Body and Spirit, Burke draws on the latest research and 25 years of clinical and personal experience to demonstrate that unresolved memories and emotions imprint themselves upon our psyches and actually descend into our cells, bones, and tissue. Once here, they cause a myriad of problems from complex emotional reactions to relationship conflicts and even physical symptoms Burke explains.
In recognition of this achievement, Memory in Our Bones has been awarded the 2009 Bronze Medal in the Mind, Body, and Spirit from the Independent Publisher (IPPY) Book Awards. Burke’s in-depth examination of the nature of consciousness demonstrates that “our memories and emotions can and do cross the barriers of time and death to reemerge in our bodies and lives.” This may sound ominous, but Burke reassures readers that deep and lasting change is possible. Imprinted memories and emotions can be easily resolved and released by using the simple, direct practices presented in Memory in Our Bones.
