06-06-14 Love, Medicine And Dr. Bernie Siegel
Our guest is Dr. Bernard Siegel—or Bernie, as he prefers to be called. Our conversation will center on the healing potential in human beings, how the mainstream medical system fails to recognize or to utilize it, and how what Bernie calls the “Unconscious Mind” already knows the future. This is a fascinating and illuminating exploration with one of the true pioneers of Mind-Body Medicine.
Especially interesting is the way Bernie uses the drawings of patients to help with diagnosis, understand how the person is experiencing his illness, and help activate the healing power. As a physician who has cared for and counseled innumerable people whose mortality has been threatened by illness, Bernie embraces a philosophy of living and dying that stands at the forefront of the medical ethics and spiritual issues our society is grappling with today.
Bernie sees his patients as his teachers, and shares many of the things he has learned from them. As a storyteller, Bernie is unequaled, and through the dozens of stories he tells here you will get a real sense of how each of us can activate our healing potential and an understanding of why, with a lifetime’s wisdom and experience, he trusts in miracles more than ever. Listen and enjoy this thoroughly engrossing show!
