Healing Brought Down from the Mountain

Healing Brought Down from the Mountain - Paralysis Recovery to Marathon Athlete - Doug Heyes

Aired Wednesday, 30 March 2016, 4:00 PM ET

16 years ago, while working as a National Ski Patroller in Southern California (where he has served for two decades and led hundreds of rescues) Doug Heyes sustained a massive spinal cord injury from which he was initially paralyzed from the neck down, unable to move, feel, or breathe. Following his own miraculous healing from that paralyzing spinal-cord injury, Doug first came into an awareness of his gift for Spirit-Energy Healing. His story received widespread attention since its publication in Chicken Soup for the Soul: A Book of Miracles “Miracle on the Mountain.” Since that life-changing experience, Doug has devoted himself to the study and practice of transformational healing. In his book, The Touch, Doug takes us through his story and how you can learn to use his method of healing. The Touch is much more than a teaching guide. Its heartbeat comes through in Heyes’ inspiring “tales from the trail,” milestones on his amazing trek down the path of light, stories of remarkable healings – including his own – that changed his life forever.

About the Guest Doug Heyes

Doug Heyes started out as young actor. His first TV role was at the age of three, appearing in the original “Twilight Zone” series directed by his father, Douglas Heyes. Following his successful acting career, Heyes shifted to writing and spent many years in the trenches of dramatic series television, with dozens of individual episodic credits and multiple network engagements as a creative executive and producer of primetime programming.

After his skiing accident, “THE TOUCH,” awakened him to his own healing gifts and set the stage for his total immersion in the healing arts – a journey which took him through a lineage of masters and teachers from various traditions, and back to school, where he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology (UCLA, 2007) and a Master’s Degree in Spiritual Psychology (University of Santa Monica, 2012). Since receiving his Master’s, Heyes has devoted himself to developing his private practice in Spiritual Psychology, Transformational Coaching and RAM Healing. He has also created an intensive workshop – “AWAKEN YOUR INNER HEALER” – in which he teaches the skills presented in THE TOUCH, a text which now becomes “required reading” in his workshops.

Heyes is an avid outdoorsman, skier, whitewater kayaker, martial artist and long-distance athlete. Since his astonishing recovery, Heyes has competed in numerous endurance challenges as celebrations of health and opportunities for charitable fundraising. These events have included marathons, century rides, triathlons, mountain multisport events such as the gutbusting Conquer The Bear Series (Snowshoeing, Lake Kayaking, Mountain Biking, Mountain Triathlon and the Big Bear Lake Marathon) and such classics as the MS150 Bike Tour – 150 miles in 2 days for Multiple Sclerosis – and the grueling Peak-to-Peak Pedal – 335 miles between Big Bear Lake and Mammoth Mountain, California for the United States Adaptive Recreation Center. A seasoned Emergency Medical Technician, ski patroller and outdoor rescue instructor, Heyes also holds a Red Belt in Pyong Ahn Do Won (Peaceful Mind Way) Kung Fu and has served as a training instructor for the American Academy of Martial Arts. Doug Heyes makes his home in the coastal mountains of California.
