Dr. Marilyn Schlitz
Unlock the power of your intention to create optimal health and increase your happiness through simple, cutting-edge, scientifically verified practices.
Did you know that people who have close friendships live longer, healthier lives?
As it turns out, your health can be influenced by far more factors than Western society and modern science once thought. Love, for example can be powerful medicine, prayers can affect real changes in our bodies, and social support can mean the difference between life and death.
If you’re curious about WHY this is so and, more importantly, what simple things you can do to improve the quality and length of your life, we invite you to a special call event with the brilliant Dr. Marilyn Schlitz.
Marilyn has been at the forefront of fascinating work in integrative medicine, consciousness research, and healing.
She will take you into barely charted waters that open up a new understanding of who we are and how we thrive. She’ll reveal why (and how) consciousness is the “x-factor” in achieving radiant health and deep healing.
This new paradigm of health originates in consciousness and finds expression in your body, mind, heart, and soul as well as your relationships and community.
In fact, a growing body of research shows our consciousness is not as separate as you may have once thought. We are connected in both obvious and surprising ways.
For example, research is showing that we naturally start to resonate with each other in relationship, and become neurobiologically entrained. In our most intimate relationships, our own and our partners’ thoughts and emotions can influence the ways we navigate stress, and in turn our health and happiness.
On an even subtler level, in studies with Tibetan tonglen meditation, researchers had healthy partners of people with cancer send compassionate intention to their partner. Even at a distance, results showed measurable shifts in the physiology of the sick partners. In other words, these consciousness effects happen even at a distance!
In many traditional cultures, healing has been seen to flow from collective harmony. For example, the Kalahari did healing trance dances to restore harmony in the tribe in order to cure disease in the individual — something akin to harnessing the “ the field effect” of consciousness.
Understanding and utilizing this emergent paradigm of healing for your life requires melding the skills of a scientist, doctor, and anthropologist who crosses cultural boundaries to mine common practices from ancient to modern cultures, which is precisely what Dr. Schlitz guides you to do.
She is a fountain of both scientific knowledge and healing wisdom, thanks to 30 years of study with leading-edge scientists, healers, shamans, and others.
During this special call event with her, you’ll:
- Receive a more complete picture of how healing happens through consciousness
- Discovered the power of expectancy in creating pain and discomfort (and what you can do to shift it)
- Recognize the importance of loving relationships in any healing process
- Receive insights into the remarkable new findings that show you can consciously influence your genetics, as well as our endocrine and immune system
- Learn the 5 basic components of transformative healing practice, which you can apply in your life
Join us for a fascinating hour at the frontiers of science, consciousness and healing!
It’s time to set aside the simplistic idea of healing as a purely individual act centered in the body... and Dr. Schlitz will reveal how and why true holistic health for all of us requires healthy relationships and community.
You’ll also get to hear about the exciting launch of a brand new 7-week program with Dr. Schlitz that takes you much further.
