Consciousness & Healing


What role does consciousness
play in health and healing?

Although great strides have been made in the study of complementary and alternative medicine, our health care system remains primarily disease-centered rather than focused on whole-person healing. Through original research projects exploring the role of consciousness and healing, invitational meetings bringing together stakeholders and wisdom keepers from a variety of healthcare settings and healing traditions, and development of research-based educational curricula for healthcare providers and the general public, this program area is focused on advancing scientific research on the role of consciousness in healing, and supporting the emergence of a new model of health care that allows for the inner wisdom of both patients and health care providers to be combined with scientific and technological advances for the promotion of health and well-being.
