A pioneer in holistic medicine, Borysenko will share how the human mind is created through our bodies and our relationships and how to develop strategies to deepen consciousness, health and overall well-being. The program will honor Dr. Candace Pert, a giant in the world of mind-body science.
Event in Honor of Mind-Body Science giant, Dr. Candace Pert
Less than 30 years ago, the concept of an integrated mind-body-spirit was nonexistent in Western medicine. The mind was believed to be a product of the brain- the master control center over the body. But in the 1970s and 80s, the scientific research of visionary Dr. Candace Beebe Pert forever shattered the notion that the brain reigns supreme as the seat of intelligence, thought, memory and emotion.
Her groundbreaking work, along with partner, Dr. Michael Ruff, paved the way for a radical new paradigm of viewing the neurological, endocrine and immunological systems as a unified communications network that connects every facet of body and mind via continual and elegant conversation. This prompted Pert to coin the term “BodyMind” to describe this sense of a singular human entity encompassing body and psyche. Thus, the field of psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) or mind-body medicine was born.
Your Body IS Your Subconscious Mind -Dr. Candace Pert
Pert’s work deeply influenced millions of scientists, doctors, psychotherapists, holistic practitioners, authors and spiritual seekers worldwide. At her memorial service last October, Dr. Deepak Chopra proclaimed that much of his work was shaped by Pert’s scientific theory in which the emotions integrate the workings of mind, body and spirit.
Pert shared her scientific research with nonscientists in a readily understandable and engaging way via lectures worldwide, documentaries like Healing the Mind with Bill Moyers, films like What the Bleep Do We Know!?, CDs and her books, Molecules of Emotion: The Scientific Basis Behind Mind-Body Medicine (Scribner) and Everything You Need to Feel Go(o)d (Hay House).
Throughout, she explains how the informational molecules profoundly influence our health, our happiness and how we experience and create our reality, and encourages the utilization of scientific knowledge to enhance our lives with tools for spiritual, physical and emotional well-being.
