Seeds of Light, Images of Healing: A Self-Portrait.

Seeds of Light, Images of Healing: A Self-Portrait by Angelina Margareta Antoinetta Hekking Angelina Hekking has created a breathtaking photographic chronicle of her experiences with MS. Approximately 75 black and white photographs brilliantly capture her journeys through frustration, rage, childbirth and triumph. The accompanying text covers the personal road Ms. Hekking followed to live successfully with MS, including study at the San Francisco Institute of Magical and Healing Arts, the practice of T'ai Chi and the martial arts, and Hatha Yoga. Readers should be alert to the fact that none of these techniques falls within the framework of recognized medical treatment procedures. Nor can the Society recommend that they replace medical treatment. However, with that caution in mind, you can give yourself over to the beauty and power of the photographs in this book. Available for $30.00 (includes shipping and handling) for people with MS by check from Angel Publishing, 210 Columbus Avenue, Suite 614, San Francisco, California 94133. 415-776-8657.
