With the clarity of a physicist and the compassion of a gifted healer with 15 years of professional experience observing 5,000 clients and students, Barbara Ann Brennan presents the first in-depth study of the human energy field for people who seek happiness, health, and their full potential.
Our physical bodies exist within a larger "body", a human energy field or aura, which is the vehicle through which we create our experience of reality, including health and illness. It is through this energy field that we have the power to heal ourselves.This energy body - only recently verified by scientists, but long known to healers and mystics - is the starting point of all illness. Here, our most powerful and profound human interactions take place, the precursor and healer of all physiological and emotional disturbances.
Hands of Light is your guide to a new wholeness. It offers:

I have both and I think they complement each other. I think HOL is a dense work, and so having audio and print helps render it accessible.
Hmm. Susan Denaker was OK overall but in some places really hit a duff note with her intonation. In places, where Brennan is describing personality types and psychological issues, Denaker takes pains to adopt a smug, condescending and judgemental tone very at odds with the nature of a healer. Very ill-judged.
Dear Audible, not all books are 'stories'. This is non-fiction. Please note.
If you have HOL in print then this will be a useful companion. Because HOL is an instructional manual, you do need text to accompany it unless you plan on sitting and taking notes. PDFs are howvever included with the download with some diagrams etc.
"Listen Again and Again!"
I really enjoyed listening to this book and have already heard it read through twice. I own the print edition and love the beautiful artwork it contains but reading through it on my own has been challenging. I'm able to play this audiobook and listen while doing other things, allowing me to absorb it's information throughout my day. I highly recommend this book and I'm looking forward to my next purchase of the sequel "Light Emerging."
"Very instructive. But did not have access to the"
Would like to see the illustrations mentioned throughout the text. Missed out on much of the instruction. Need to see the illustrations
"What A Gift..."
Definitely Mandatory Reading
There are many memorable moments in this book, but I particularly appreciate and enjoy how well the author describes the flow of energy and includes illuminating images of how the energy appears during different forms of disease/disorders/emotions/etc. I REALLY appreciate this book because, as someone who has yet to see the human energy field, I feel like I have already acquired many images of it. Thank you!
No, I have not. Though, she is probably the best narrator I've heard on Audible thus far. She reads as if it's her own book. I actually looked to see whether the narrator and the author were one in the same -- I was shocked to see that they aren't! Excellent, easy, natural, and authoritative narration. Great job, Susan~~
EVERYTHING. I don't even know where to begin. I'll leave you with an analogy. After listening to this book carefully, I feel like I know my body in the way that a person who studies their driver's manual knows his/her car intimately. This book should be mandatory reading for everyone because it BASICALLY informs us about the bodies we have been given.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!!
"Transformative For those who are ready"
Amazing book that words cannot fully describe. This book spoke to me on a soul level.
"Could listen several times over!"
It would be rated one my top most likely to listen to out of my elaborate library.
In depth concepts on auras and charkas
No I haven't, though I do find her voice comforting making it easy to listen along. Now I'm going to investigate what her other performances are!
That I shouldn't be selfish by keeping this book's valuable treasure all to myself. Ordered two hard copies to send off a couple family members. Whom not only would LOVE context, but a most perfect time to enter their current life.
Worth the Credit or $ that is if in this lifetime your on a path of spiritual enlightenment. Does help having some knowledge about she elaborates throughout her wonderful book.
"it got over my head"
the reader is very good.
haven:t finished it I had to stop. will continue when i catch up
I was enjoying it but it got to a level beyond my current level.
not possible 11hours
"Couldn't Make It Thru the First 3 Chapters"
The narrator had a put on "actor's" voice. It started to get grating by the 2nd chapter. Her enunciation and pronunciation was annoying to me and not natural at all.
Have I missed something?! Why does this audio book receive such glowing reviews when I could barely make it through the 2nd chapter, let alone the 4th? The first 3 or 4 chapters were spent telling us what to expect from the rest of the audio book. I kept thinking,
'Come on already, would you just start?!" I finally had to call it quits because it started to really get on my nerves. The narrator became annoying, too. She was an "emoter", the worst kind of voice for me to listen to, not like a normal person speaking at all. I moved on to something by Brene Brown that was so much more natural and interesting.
Well rounded, very informative, read well, extremely interesting. Learned about myself too. Very well done.
"Awesome guide to chakras & auras too."
So much more than I expected. Narrator has a nice tempo and matches the subject matter nicely. Ms. Brennan seems to be truly gifted and I'd love to meet her.
"A discovery of the essence of oneself."
The book helped me to discover that I indeed had the gift to help others heal themselves. I realize that there is still much for me to learn before attempting to help others. The book set me on the right path. Thank you.
