Deborah King IS Energy Healing! A New York Times best-selling author, energy healer and spiritual teacher, Deborah has developed her powerful gifts through nearly three decades of global study and is hailed as the premiere Master Healer of our time. Deborah was a successful attorney in her twenties when she was diagnosed with cancer that began a quest for health that would radically change her life. Her amazing remission at the hands of a healer led her to leave the corporate arena for the field of energy medicine, where she mastered ancient and modern systems, ultimately developed a powerful energy healing technique of her own. Through her numerous books, live workshops, TV appearances, and her popular Hay House Radio Show, Deborah has guided tens of thousands of people to tap into a higher level of consciousness, trust their intuition, and heal themselves in a way they never thought possible. In the process, many people discovered a new path to healing as their own innate healing abilities were awakened. With Spirit as her guide, Deborah created a powerful and hugely successful online video certification course for those who want to use their gifts not just to heal themselves, but also to heal others – even the world! Deborah’s New York Times best-selling Be Your Own Shaman and Truth Heals: What You Hide Can Hurt You take you on unique journeys into the powerful esoteric world of healers, sages, and shamans. Her most recent book, Entangled In Darkness: Seeking the Light is a startling trip into the maze of the psyche and an enlightened path out.
