Diverse Perspectives on Healing (Part 8)

by Marilyn Schlitz, Ph.D.,  Program Chair at Sofia University for the PhD in Transpersonal Psychology programs

Alan Wallace, a Tibetan Buddhist scholar and practitioner, articulates the importance of the mind in healing. In contrast to Sequoyah Trueblood, whom we heard from previously in this series, Wallace ascribes great importance to the refinement and utilization of the mind during the healing process. Through the frequency of specific healing mantras on the “conveyor” of the mind Wallace believes the healer can most effectively address the ailmenets of a healee.

Diverse Perspectives on Healing (Part 6)

by Marilyn Schlitz, Ph.D., program Chair at Sofia University for the PhD in Transpersonal Psychology programs.

Sequoyah Trueblood, of the Cherokee and Chocktaw traditions, express similar perspectives to what previous healers in this series have shared — the process of healing is one of letting the divine flow through you and that the distance between healer and healee is irrelevant. He also shares that pain and suffering are an important teacher for an individual and that the healer’s role is to help the individual understand and address the root cause of that pain and suffering. His message ultimately echoes the perspective that when we are in alignment with the Divine we can both be healers and be healed.

Mitchell Krucoff, MD offers a perspective as a cardiologist who recognizes that the tools of transformation are accessible to us at all times — and in the simplest of ways. He shares a powerful story from his experience in a chaotic clinical environment and how committing to a moment of intentional pause, to a 60 second prayer, totally transformed the act of healing for him and his team.

Diverse Perspectives on Healing (Part 4)

In this video excerpt, Swami Veda Bharati represents the Hindu and Vedic traditions as he speaks to the idea of universal energy as a conscious force. He particularly emphasizes a central Vedic idea that we must recognize ourselves within an awareness continuum, put aside the ego, and let the ocean of awareness flow in the healing process. As part of this process the healer facilitates a transference of holistic, selfless karma to the healee.

Diverse Perspectives on Healing (Part 3)

by Marilyn Schlitz, Ph.D.,  Program Chair at Sofia University for the PhD in Transpersonal Psychology programs

Welcome to Part 3 of this blog series that explores the many cultural and religious perspectives on healing. Using video excerpts from two DVDs, Consciousness & Healing, and Compassionate Intention, Prayer, and Distant Healing, this series illuminates the diversity of perspectives and the common threads that unite the many distinct approaches to healing.

In the video excerpt below Nancy Maryboy, who is Navajo and Cherokee and has a doctorate in Native American cosmology, shares Native perspectives on distant healing. She tells us that while there may be spatial differences between on-site versus distant (e.g. across the country) healing, one still calls upon the same cosmic elements to perform the healing. Maryboy also shares perspectives on time and healing, especially during and after ceremonial healing gatherings.

Diverse Perspectives on Healing (Part 2)

Welcome to Part 2 of this blog series that explores the many cultural and religious perspectives on healing. Using video excerpts from two DVDs, Consciousness & Healing, and Compassionate Intention, Prayer, and Distant Healing, this series illuminates the diversity of perspectives and the common threads that unite the many distinct approaches to healing.

In the video excerpt above we hear from two unique healing worldviews — Sufi and Johrei. Arife Hammerle, a psychotherapist and Sufi teacher, describes how the process of meditation and prayer aligns the healer to the purity of the divine and enables him or her to transfer that healing essence to those who need healing. Yoshiaki Kato, a Johrei practitioner from Japan, demonstrates how he moves through the process of healing, from attention to God, to projecting intention, embracing non-attachment, and healing from a place of joy and gratitude.

Diverse approaches to connecting consciousness, healing and transformation

Do you have a passion to bring something new to the world? Is conducting research something that you see yourself doing? Dr. Marilyn Schlitz saw that for herself, and as the Chair for Sofia University’s PhD programs, models that passion with her current research on diverse perspectives in healing.

My goal is to contribute to the emergence of a more sustainable worldview through original research, field formation, education, multi-media communications, and a global network of colleagues. I am eager to harvest 35 years of work on consciousness transformation and healing to contribute to the kind of positive personal and social transformation that is being called for in our times.”

Diverse Perspectives on Healing (Part I)

by Marilyn Schlitz, Ph.D.,  Program Chair at Sofia University for the PhD in Transpersonal Psychology programs

Welcome to Part 1 of a video blog series exploring diverse cultural and religious perspectives on healing. The series is based on interviews I conducted with masters and teachers from the world’s traditions. This unique series will illuminate the diverse approaches to healing as well as the common threads that unite the many distinct practices that connect consciousness, healing and transformation.

In this first video Sylver Quevedo, MD, a professor of comparative healing, speaks of compassion as a defining quality of healers across traditions. Steven Aung, MD, reflects on “loving kindness” and the importance of the mental state of the healer during the act of healing. Lastly, Eric Vormanns relates his practice of Etheric Healing, a tradition that traces back to his home country of Ghana.
