The Art of Healing – Bernie Siegel

Presenters: Dr. Bernie Siegel

Describing the elements necessary for self-induced healing, mind-body interactions and unity of mind and body, learning from patients who do well, the world of dreams and drawings as a source of somatic and psychic information and which is sorely missing from traditional medicine.

When Dr. Siegel finished his medical training as a pediatric surgeon and general surgeon, he realized he was not trained to care for people. Doctors treat the result, not the cause, and it caused him a great deal of pain to realize he couldn’t cure everything. So he searched for a way to learn more about his patients and found it by encouraging his patients to dream and to draw. In 1978 he originated Exceptional Cancer Patients, a specific form of individual and group therapy utilizing patientsā€™ drawings, dreams, images and feelings. ECaP is based on ā€œcarefrontation,ā€ a safe, loving therapeutic confrontation, which facilitates personal lifestyle changes, personal empowerment and healing of the individualā€™s life. The physical, spiritual and psychological benefits which followed led to his desire to make everyone aware of his or her healing potential. He realized exceptional behavior is what we are all capable of.
