"Drs. Morin and Reiss share their unique experience of working with people in coma. Their book is exciting to read, full of valuable information and an important contribution to the growing field of process-oriented coma work. With their powerful mix of theory, client stories of remarkable journeys, and easy-to-follow exercises, the reader is taken into the world inside coma. It helps professionals and caregivers relate with people in coma, and with their own internal states. We highly recommend it." -- Drs. Amy and Arnold Mindell, authors of Coma, A Healing Journey, and Coma, Key to Awakening "Kudos to Morin and Reiss for helping to bridge the great chasm between conventional medical science and the emerging paradigm of process oriented psychology as applied to managing patients in coma or minimally conscious states. Not only do they offer a refreshing new framework for understanding coma, they have provided a gold mine of practical advice for all who interact with and manage patients in altered states of consciousness, whether in the ICU, the neuro-rehabilitation unit, or providing care at the end of life." -- Richard J. Maunder, M.D., Intensivist and Palliative Medicine specialist
