In addition to teaching our patients how to create a patient-centered action plan (The Prescription), it is also our responsibility as true healers to guide our patients spiritually and help them learn to let the Divine take the lead in their own lives.

 Lissa Rankin, MD and guest speaker Brandy Gillmore, PhD

Module 25: Spiritual Bypassing

 Lissa Rankin, MD and guest speaker Robert Augustus Masters, PhD

Especially in spiritual circles, certain emotions deemed to be "unspiritual" often get repressed in ways that can prevent healing. Anger, frustration, resentment, jealousy, grief, and disappointment, for example, may get "spiritually bypassed" with premature forgiveness, neurotic tolerance, blind compassion, and other spiritual bypassing and intimacy bypassing techniques. This talk aims to inspire us to lean into the full range of human emotions in healthy ways, not just as a way to deepen intimacy with each other and with the Divine, but as a way to foster mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual healing.

William Bengston, PhD
Module 28: The Energy Cure

 Lissa Rankin, MD and guest speaker William Bengston, PhD

Bill, who Lissa just finished teaching with in Paris, wrote a book, The Energy Cure, but mostly Bill is a devoted, hardcore, diligent researcher. For many years now, Bill has been curing cancer in mice by training skeptical grad students with no energy healing experience to do hands-on healing work on the mice’s cages. These methods are curing cancer in people too, including difficult to treat cancers like pancreatic cancer. Bill calls his technique “hocus pocus” and laughs about how silly it all sounds, but it’s working. And now he’s researching how to store healing energy in pieces of cotton or bottles of water so this kind of healing energy could be mass distributed—at very lost cost. He dreams of making conventional cancer treatment irrelevant and defunct. The rabbit hole Lissa found herself diving into continues to baffle her and leave her in awe.
Asha Clinton, PhD
Module 29: Energy Psychology Tools As Potential Cancer Treatment

 Lissa Rankin, MD and guest speaker Asha Clinton, PhD

Asha is a psychologist, former Princeton professor, mystic healer, and longtime Sufi practitioner who founded Advanced Integrative Therapy (AIT), a form of energy psychology treatment for trauma. AIT is working remarkably well for a variety of psychological diagnoses, but what drew Lissa in was how she’s using AIT as primary or secondary treatment for cancer! Asha has trained thousands of therapists in this reproducible technique, and therapists are getting amazing results. Wow.
Richard Schwartz, PhD
Module 30: The Internal Family Systems (IFS) Model As A Physical Healing Tool

 Lissa Rankin, MD and guest speaker Richard Schwartz, PhD

Lissa digs into what Richard “Dick” Schwartz, PhD is up to with his IFS (Internal Family Systems) therapy work. Dick holds the point of view that physical symptoms or even “accidental” injury can be “protector parts” that are keeping our “exiled parts” safe. Similarly to how she teaches in Mind Over Medicine, Dick has discovered that if you communicate with the symptom or area of pain, it will often reveal to you the root cause of why it’s there and what it needs in order to heal. He’s even doing research to validate his findings, and the early findings with rheumatoid arthritis are really promising and demonstrating that this approach is an evidence-based technique!
Larry Dossey, MD
Module 31: Change the World of Healthcare

 Lissa Rankin, MD and guest speaker Larry Dossey, MD

This module focuses on what we as a collective need to do in order to heal our broken health care system. What needs to change externally in the system? What needs to change internally within doctors and clients? What leadership role will you play in being part of the change? Larry Dossey, author of the bestselling Healing Words, proposes what he calls “Era 3 medicine,” and will teach us how we might adopt this evolved perspective in order to become better doctors, transform health care, and step into our roles as leaders of this revolution.
