The process of spiritual healing can seem mysterious. From outside appearances, the healer simply transmits healing mentally, physically or energetically to the client. But what is actually occurring in the mind of a spiritual healer and their clients during a healing session? This global gathering explores research about what is perceived and communicated from the perspective of healers and the implications for research on mind-matter interaction.
Noetic Global Gathering
Spiritual Healing Through the Eyes of Healers
Wednesday, June 17, 2020
2:00 – 3:30 pm (Pacific)
Presented by IONS NextGen award winner Sarah Peck, EdD, this webinar provides powerful first-hand accounts from 30 spiritual healers as they conducted healing sessions (during a research study she conducted), including narratives of their inner experiences along with visual depictions of their mental imagery. Dr. Peck will also explore the similarities and differences between the healers working with the same client at the same time, which provides unique insights about what is actually happening during these sessions from the perspective of the healer. She also highlights the importance of this developing research.
