CLEAN BAY CERTIFIED RESTAURANTS CLEAN BAY CERTIFIED RESTAURANTS By Lynne McTaggart THE POWER OF EIGHT inspire The Amazing Rebound Effect of Group Intention I n 2008, in one of my early workshops, I placed participants in small groups of about eight, just to see what would happen if group members tried to heal one of their group through a collective healing intention. I thought the group effect would be a feel-good exercise – something akin to a mas- sage or a facial — but I was shocked to listen to more than an hour of instant, near-miracu- lous healings the following day. Throughout the next year, in every workshop we ran, whenever we set up our clusters of eight or so people in each group, gave them a little instruction and asked them to send inten- tion to a group member, we were stunned wit- nesses to story after story of physical and psychic transformation. Mary's multiple sclero- sis had made it diffi cult for her to walk without aids. The morning after being the target of a Pow- er of Eight group, she ar- rived at the workshop without her crutches. Marsha suffered from a cata- ract-like opacity blocking the vision of one eye. The following day, after her group's healing intention, she claimed that her sight in that eye had been almost fully restored. Diana in Fort Lauderdale had such pain in her hip from sco- liosis that she had to stop exercising. During the inten- tion, she'd felt intense heat and a rapid-fi re, twitching response in her back. The next day, she declared, "It's like I have a new hip." For many years I believed I was witnessing a placebo effect — until I began to realize that the senders were getting healed too. Walter, for instance, was in college working on a sci- ence degree when he was drafted and sent to Viet- nam for the fi nal year of the war. The experience so traumatized him that he did not fi nish his uni- versity degree, and was left in a state of depres- sion. His bad luck seemed to carry on; even the high point in his life — his sec- ond marriage — was quickly extinguished after his wife died from cancer.
