Symposium Description and Objectives
The medicine of the 20th century was about the treatment of illness. The medicine of the 21st century is about wellness. As medical science has made strides in the detection and treatment of illness, we have reached a tipping point where the emphasis is upon wellness and living a fuller life to our personal best potential. The journey through the healing zone is guided by archetypes and myths, active imagination, dreams and synchronicities, and the neuroplastic mysteries of our physical reality. We will outline how to work with psychological and soul processes in our quest for healing and wholeness and will explore practical methods and techniques that can help to engage the healing zone and present guidelines and practices that can help create and manage our own personal wellness programs.
