Compassionate Intention, Prayer, and Distant Healing

Compassionate Intention, Prayer, and Distant Healing

In this innovative three-DVD self-paced learning program, you will meet scientists, healers, and health professionals who are exploring the frontiers of consciousness and healing by addressing the widespread practice of distant healing.

  • Learn about different cultural models of healing through video interviews with healing practitioners from around the world.
  • Develop skills for assessing the scientific literature from the research scientists who understand the history of this complex field and have conducted the studies.
  • Consider the issues underlying research designs in distant healing studies and the ways in which science seeks to understand the role of consciousness, spirituality, and the mind in healing.
  • Expand your own tool kit by examining the methods healers use to bring around healing and the reasons standard medical practitioners think they may be important.
  • Enhance your cultural competence by identifying common elements across a wide range of healing traditions including: Christian, Hindy, Buddhist, Islamic, Native American, African, Asian, and other alternative forms.
