Swedenborg & Healing Prayer Service

A helpful book to look at is: Swedenborg, Mesmer, & the Mind/Body Connection: The Roots of Complimentary Medicine by Dr. John S. Haller Jr., emeritus professor of history and medical humanities at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale. He has written a numbers of books, especially on the history of medicine.

In this book, Haller looks at both Emanuel Swedenborg [1688-1772] and Anton Mesmer [1734 – 1815] as possible roots of today’s wholistic healing movements. Swedenborg was 46 years old when Mesmer was born, and Mesmer was 38 years old when Swedenborg died. 

Haller says of Swedenborg:

He has been viewed as a genius whose vision and visions were marks of seminal importance. Along with Leonardo da Vinci, he is one of the great geniuses known to the Western world, a man whose abilities crossed a multitude of disciplines—from science and mechanics. 
On the spiritual side, Swedenborg had no equal.
