References — Books, Sites, Authors, Etc

Please note that the list below is arbitrarily broken up into different sections for connivence for the reader.  Where possible, I have tried to cross-list different authors.  For example, you could look for Vietnamese Monk and Meditation Master Thich Nhat Hanh under Mindfulness, Buddhism, Healing, etc and I have tried to make every effort to list people in several places but I am sure that I may have missed someone.  If that is the case, I am sorry.
