|Healing with Stones |
Some of the group are walking in park, and Ali stops in front of a poster advertising a lecture on ďThe Secret Teachings of Ancient India Ė Healing through Magic StonesĒ.
Ali: Hey, if itís such a secret, then whyíre they advertising it on these posters?
Tim: I guess thatís part of how to keep in a secret Ė you can always break into an email, but you certainly canít break into a poster.
Magda: I think it might actually be an interesting lecture.
Tim: And how do you heal someone with stones? Do the patients stare at them, or bite them, or what?
Andrea: No, I think they probably touch them, and the stones have to be hot so that they give off energy. But you have to believe in it for it to work.
Ali: If you ask me, itís all superstition. Itís better to have a normal doctor. I donít understand why people put their trust in stuff like this.
Andrea: Yeah? And are we supposed to put our trust in normal doctors?
