Into the Magic Shop: A Neurosurgeon's Quest to Discover the Mysteries of the Brain and the Secrets of the Heart

Extraordinary things happen when we harness the power of both the brain and the heartGrowing up in the high desert of California, Jim Doty was poor, with an alcoholic father and a mother chronically depressed and paralyzed by a stroke. Today he is the director of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE) at Stanford University, of which the Dalai Lama is a founding benefactor. But back then his life was at a dead end until at twelve he wandered into a magic shop looking for a plastic thumb. Instead he met Ruth, a woman who taught him a series of exercises to ease his own suffering and manifest his greatest desires. Her final mandate was that he keep his heart open and teach these techniques to others. She gave him his first glimpse of the unique relationship between the brain and the heart.Doty would go on to put Ruths practices to work with extraordinary resultspower and wealth that he could only imagine as a twelve-year-old, riding his orange Sting-Ray bike. But he neglects Ruths most important lesson, to keep his heart open, with disastrous resultsuntil he has the opportunity to make a spectacular charitable contribution that will virtually ruin him. Part memoir, part science, part inspiration, and part practical instruction, Into the Magic Shop shows us how we can fundamentally change our lives by first changing our brains and our hearts....

    Fascinating amalgam of science, esoterica, and philosophy that neither bored nor pandered to the reader.

    Note: I received this via NetGalley for an honest review.

  • Jeanie

    Intriguing and thought provoking read!

    Not knowing what to expect from this book I was surprised to find it speaking directly to my own experiences and beliefs! I devoured this book all the while thinking "finally, someone who put this in simple understandable terms and a story!". It is hard to impart the vision of drawing energy from mental clearing and positive thinking. I especially loved the "foggy window" exercise. It made a great visual for the mind.

    Even though reading his story (and of cou

  • Penmouse

    Into the Magic Shop is a testament of how one person can change the life of another by making time to help someone in need of help.

    James R. Doty, MD was a poor kid growing up in Lancaster, California with a poor family background. Thanks to the compassion of Ruth, who he met at a local magic shop, his life was turned around.

    Doty's writing will keep you interested as it's lively and fast-paced. I stayed up far too late as I couldn't put his book down.

    Recommend.
