Healing Powers of the Mind

Does hypnosis work, and if so, how? Does meditation offer real benefits – and if so, what are they?

Do some people have the power to heal others by psychic means? Would medicine benefit by being more aware of our “spiritual” dimension? Where do psychic and spiritual approaches to medicine end and quackery begin?
