Caring for the soul is an essential - and often underestimated - element of healthcare and personal wellbeing. In this inspiring introduction to the practice of “SoulCare,” renowned mind-body-spirit pioneer Joan Borysenko will share the three most important ingredients for healing the body and mind - by caring for the soul.
What if caring for your soul is the missing ingredient in your overall personal wellbeing?
Join Joan for this insightful 60-minute teleseminar and learn how your “soul care” affects your health and is critical to healing any physical or emotional dis-ease in your body. You’ll learn to:
- Maintain your spiritual center and discover how your personal perceptions, beliefs, and reflections radically alter your physical make-up such as gene expression, immunity, cardiovascular health and emotional balance.
- Claim your interior freedom and learn techniques to release habitual thinking patterns, emotional reactions, or adverse childhood experiences that continue to shape your adult life, stress response and physical health.
- Harness the magic of right relationship and create a field of peace and openness that takes stress off of your body-mind system.
Body is a portion of Soul discerned by the five Senses.”
In the final segment of our introductory hour, Joan will take you through a simple and profound meditation practice of deep relatedness - helping you connect to your essential nature and further deepen your care of the soul.
About Joan Borysenko, PhD
This distinguished pioneer in integrative medicine is a world-renowned expert in the mind/body connection. Her work has been foundational in an international health-care revolution that recognizes the role of meaning, and the spiritual dimensions of life, as an integral part of health and healing.
Eloquent and inspiring in settings that range from hospitals to hospices, from theaters to conference venues, and from boardrooms to houses of worship, she is a credible bridge between faith and reason. Her brilliance, humor, and authenticity-in combination with the latest research-make her a compelling and inspiring teacher, speaker and writer.
After graduating magna cum laude from Bryn Mawr College in 1967, Dr. Borysenko earned her doctorate in Medical Sciences from the Harvard Medical School, where she completed post-doctoral training in cancer cell biology. Her first faculty position was at the Tufts University College of Medicine in Boston.
But after the death of her father from cancer, she became more interested in the person with the illness than in the disease itself, and returned to Harvard Medical School to complete a second postdoctoral fellowship, this time in the new field of behavioral medicine. Under the tutelage of Herbert Benson, M.D., who first identified the relaxation response and brought meditation into medicine, she was awarded a Medical Foundation Fellowship and completed her third post-doctoral fellowship in psychoneuroimmunology.
In the early 1980’s Dr. Borysenko co-founded a Mind/Body clinic with Dr. Benson and Dr. Ilan Kutz, became licensed as a psychologist, and was appointed instructor in medicine at the Harvard Medical School. Her years of clinical experience and research culminated in the 1987 publication of the New York Times best seller, Minding the Body, Mending the Mind, which sold over 400,000 copies. The 20th anniversary edition, newly revised, was published in 2007.
Author or co-author of 13 other books and numerous audio and video programs, including the Public Television special Inner Peace for Busy People, she is the Founding Partner of Mind/Body Health Sciences, LLC located in Boulder, Colorado and the Director of The Claritas Institute Interspiritual Mentor Training Program. She also hosts a weekly Internet radio show, Your Soul’s Compass, for Hay House and is one of the most popular and sought after speakers in the field of health, healing, and spirituality.
