Human beings don’t come compartmentalized–and human healing doesn’t have to either. Building bridges between medicine, psychology and spirituality is the theme of this heart-centered discussion with a medical psychologist and pioneer of psychoneuroimmunology. Borysenko asks how the fear and traumas that imprison us can be healed on all levels. She boldly brings in controversial topics and therapies at the edges of psychology–the possibility of psychic realities; how we might describe the nature of the human soul; the use of LSD and lucid dreaming in psychotherapy. Included is the moving personal story of the final moments before her mother’s death. (hosted by Michael Toms)
