Dr. Elliott S. Dacher, M.D. practiced full time internal medicine from 1975 to 1996. In 1996 he left his medical practice to begin an in-depth study of the principles and practices of consciousness and health—an ongoing study of the subtlest mind/body medicine which he pursued for many years amongst the wisdom traditions of Asia. He is the author of Aware, Awake, Alive (Paragon, 2011,) and Integral Health: The Path to Human Flourishing (Basic Books, 2006.) He is a past fellow of the Institute of Noectic Sciences.
Dr. Dacher currently studies, practices, and teaches the principles and practices of health and healing with a special focus on inner development and human flourishing. His work emphasizes the traditional goals of medicine: the end of distress and suffering and the promotion of each individual’s fullest potential, the innate capacity for human flourishing.
