    One thought on “Reinventing Medicine: Beyond Mind-Body to a New Era of Healing”

    1. I started reading this book to contribute to a paper on alternative and complementary medicine in college. it opened me up to ideas far beyond anything i expected going into it - started me asking questions that have changed my entire view of reality and philosophy of life. that should tell you enough Definitely worth a read even if the title does not interest you in the least, if only for some of the scientific studies cited and ideas on theoretical physics, collective consciousness, etc.

    2. This is a great book for those of us fascinated by modern research science and "new-age" beliefs.This book is a guided tour through the edges of modern mind-body research. How do we prove the power of energy healing, focused meditation, or ESP? Fascinating research scenarios like MIT's random number generator are discussed as well as current results and experiments.Beyond an accounting of the methods being employed to yield visible data, the book also outlines intriguing areas of research like p [...]

    3. This book is mostly about mind-body medicine and more so what the author calls "non-local" which goes beyond the mind into the collective consciousness and spiritual realms.He discusses conventional western medicine in a refreshing way. Most often, I find, that when proponents of alternative medicine compare their practice with conventional medicine it is a "better than", "us vs them" with an effort to show how screwed up western medicine is.Not so in Dossey's book. He brings out the strengths o [...]

    4. Dossey cites enough studies to make the book relevant, and has enough case studies to keep the book from getting too dry and boring. Most of the research he talks about is Western and he interprets it from a Western viewpoint. He hardly deals with subtle energy, at all (only to say that he doesn't believe in it).I also do not agree with his representation of what he calls "nonlocal mind," which is similar to Jung's concept of the collective unconscious or the Buddhist idea of non-duality. I agre [...]

    5. Very interesting book. A sincere discourse on human consciousness and the potential for medical science and technology to embrace the unlimited nature of the human mind in health and healing. Personally, I have a few problems with this book, not because it goes too far in its assertions, but because it doesn't go far enough. It's well written and thought provoking. I would love it if many of my colleagues read it and gave consideration to its suppositions.

    6. This book gave generalized views, studies and definition to consciousness extending beyond our own individual minds and into others minds to help heal. Easy to read but I would like an updated version, as this was written in 1998 and I do not see what he speaks of in today's medicine. It presents possibilities rather than explains how-to's.

    7. I was told about this book quite awhile ago, and I am so happy I got the chance to read it. This book is inspirational and elaborates magnificently about the new ways that medicine is changing the ways that patients are being treated. I look forward to reading his other books as well!!!

    8. Dossey removes the egotisicm from medicine and replaces it with healing. Somewhere in its history, "western" physicians forget the who was at the center of their task: the Patient.
