Join President/CEO of IONS Dr. Marilyn Schlitz on the "Frontiers of Integral Medicine." Her book Consciousness and Healing, which highlights the pioneering work of some 60 leaders in the field, has proven to be a cross-over success, reaching into both professional and lay audiences.
This presentation centers around two points: 1) The brain processes in-group and out-group experiences differently. Different styles of brain functioning are also seen when considering facts about other paradigms and suggests a neurobiological explanation of "paradigm blindness." 2) Every experience changes the brain. To change the current paradigm one needs to seek post-symbolic experiences that transcend symbolic, representational thought. Research will be presented suggesting that meditation practices build brain circuits that support a more wholistic world view .

Consciousness has been characterized by intentionality, so Walter takes us on a fascinating tour of philosophy, history, and medicine, in order to answer the question “what is intentionality”?
Dr. Dossey, speaking at the Reinventing Medicine conference, discusses what it is to re-invent the medical industry rather than dismantle it.
