The SMART and HEART Approach to the Science of Healing

Broadcast on March 21, 2023
With Dr. Shamini Jain
Hosted by Beth McDougall, MD

What does it mean to look for the "mechanism" of healing? In this session, Dr. Shamini Jain will discuss key scientific insights from her book, Healing Ourselves: Biofield Science and the Future of Health, and will explore how the future of healing science and practice will integrate the imaginal along with the rational. Shamini will also share a practice that allows for the integration of your imaginal and rational self for powerful whole-person healing.

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • What the latest published biofield science and psychoneuroimmunology research says about our ability to heal down to our cells
  • How integrating imaginal and rational aspects of healing can lead to better embodied practices, and upleveled healing research
  • The role of community in healing
The views expressed are specific to the author/speaker and may vary from the perspectives of The Shift Network's participants, staff, or other speakers.
