Dr. Andrew Vidich had the 80 members of our hospital medical staff completely engaged with his Grand Rounds presentation. Several physicians have since then mentioned to me that the clarity and directness of his presentation allowed them to understand for the first time the profound relationship between meditation and healing. We are anxious to have Dr. Vidich back at our hospital when he visits California again, to do another presentation or workshop on this exciting topic.

Nola Lewis The Institute of Noetic Studies

“Love Is A Secret is inspiration in tone rather than scholarly, yet it clearly rests on an intense and far-reaching search for a deep understanding of the essence of love. In bringing these materials together in a single book, it provides a great service
