The greatest mistake in the treatment of diseases is that there are physicians for the body and physicians for the soul, although the two cannot be separated.
Many have experienced how faith can heal. Now, more and more medical research from leading hospitals and universities is backing up this experience.
Studies conducted at universities, including Duke, Dartmouth, and Yale, conclude that faith really is good for you and can make you healthier, happier, and live longer. More than 70 of the nation’s 125 medical schools—from Harvard to Stanford—offer courses in spirituality.
This gathering on how faith can heal is for those with a personal or professional interest in the exciting research into, and practical application of, the intersection of science, medicine, healing, and spirituality.
During the weekend we learn from four eminent pioneers—Bernie Siegel, Caroline Myss, Lewis Mehl-Madrona, and Issam Nemeh—who for decades have been investigating how faith can heal. As we hear inspiring stories backed by scientific evidence we:
- Learn about the effect of intercessory prayer on the healing process
- Explore why people who pray tend to get sick less often, and when they do get sick, how prayer can help them get better faster
- Discover how gratitude, forgiveness, self-esteem, and love can aid the healing process
- Find out how meditation can change brain activity, improve immune response, and lower heart rate and blood pressure
- Delve into how faith and spirituality can help us cope during times of illness and injury
We also participate in a Native American healing ritual, a faith healing service, guided visualizations, and other healing techniques for self and others.
