Have you ever had an ache or pain, and wished your body could talk to you and tell you what was wrong? You’re not alone! Master storyteller Nancy Mellon, author of Body Eloquence, has guided scores of people through the process of giving their bodies a voice. Drawing from mythology, medicine, biology and energetic healing, she finds the essential stories that characterize each organ of the human body, and trains us how to use these resources to identify the messages that our organs are communicating to us.

The heart, for instance, is not just a durable pump, sending oxygenated blood to every cell. It’s also a representation of goodwill; a heart-to-heart connection, or an openhearted friend, are universal stories we can all identify. But being too big-hearted may mean we have poor boundaries, and are open to hurt. And a hard-hearted person is one we all avoid. These archetypes are found in mythologies from Native American traditions to Scandinavian tribes to Greek history, and are woven together in a fascinating matrix of meaning by Body Eloquence, showing how our organs are part of our psyche, our history, and our collective mythology. And as many of the people in these pages attest, our stories provide vital clues to our health, while changing our personal mythology to support the peak functioning of our bodies can boost our health
