Contemplative Medicine: The New Frontier in the Evolution of Medicine


I will speaking at the OAND annual convention on the exciting and emerging field of Contemplative Medicine.



Contemplative Medicine is an emerging field that incorporates mindfulness practice, compassionate action, and moment-to-moment awareness into the treatment of patients.  The disciplines of neuroplasticity, PNI (Psychoneuroimmunology) and interpersonal neurobiology are all components.

In Contemplative Medicine, health-care practitioners focus on being fully and unconditionally present with patients, bringing to the therapeutic relationship qualities of mindfulness and compassion in order to help clients access their fundamental goodness and inner healing wisdom. It is an exploration of the meaning, message and context of a symptom or disease, as an opportunity for self-healing and awakening. It involves examining ones’ attitude, beliefs and relationship to the health concern.

This presentation will explain what Contemplative Medicine is, the various components within it, why it is the emerging horizon in the evolution of medicine, and will outline how to effectively integrate these concepts into your own naturopathic practice.
