Noetic Sciences combine the powers of keen observation and logic with the deep authority of inner wisdom to see clearly, to heal, and to transform our lives and our world. Join integrative medicine physician Lee Lipsenthal, MD along with psychologist and mind-body medicine researcher Cassandra Vieten, PhD to learn practices grounded in science and the world’s wisdom traditions that support and sustain the transformative process in your own life and in the lives of those with whom you work. Building on a model of transformative change developed from over a decade of research, learn what stimulates positive transformations, where the process can be diverted, and how you can creatively engage with its unfolding with your whole self: mind, body, and spirit. Our focus will be to renew, balance mind with heart, and realign with our deeper nature, a true source of healing and transformation.
