Healing Stories by Robert W. Alcorn, M.D.
Healing Stories – My Journey from Mainstream Psychiatry Toward Spiritual Healing presents a holistic view of psychiatric intervention based on the following principles:
- The medical model of the human being is insufficient. Despite advances in modern physics, the medical model is still based on obsolete science.
- Altered states of consciousness are important in reaching the inner resources for healing that lie within the patient .
- All things in life are alive and have their own type of consciousness, the animals, the plants, the rocks, even the organs and cells within our bodies.
- Consciousness exists independently of the body and has a primary role in the growth and development of the body and in its healing processes.
- The healer can help the patient best by showing the patient how to access his/her own inner resources.
- The role of the healer and his/her relationship to the patient is a sacred trust requiring impeccable behavior and a profound degree of objectivity, courage and faith.
- The patient’s role is to accept the challenge of growing into a whole person, responsible for his/her own life and spiritual direction.
“Bob Alcorn is one of those too-few pioneer physicians who have the courage to be open to the new medicine, the new understanding and new treatment of disorder, called energy medicine. He is a good bridge between this new understanding and the foundation built upon the classical, dynamic view. He writes with courage and finesse and truth. This is an important book for everyone to read and, most especially, physicians. I heartily endorse it and the author.”
