Spirituality, Neuroscience & Narrative

Joan Borysenko, PhD

6 CE Hours**

Learn how to help your clients integrate body, brain, and story into a coherent whole.



  • Explain how biography and story affect biology.

  • Examine the effect of identity on agency.

  • Define interpersonal neurobiology.

The Art & Science of Resilience
Joan Borysenko, PhD

1.5 CE Hours**

The planet is experiencing an unprecedented time of radical and unpredictable change. Resilience is a both a mindset and a skill set that all humans beings require in order to cope with change, manage adversity and tolerate uncertainty. While adverse childhood experiences and other traumas damage the ability to be resilient in both behavior and physiology, it is possible to develop a constellation of 7 mind habits and attitudes that change the brain, protect the telomeres necessary for longevity, and reduce inflammation while engendering stress hardiness and emotional stability. You will learn the 7 major skills of resilience, based in contemplative practices, which can then be cultivated by your clients.   



  • List 7 characteristics of resilience that are easily cultivated.

  • Practice a simple mindfulness skill that reduces stress and invites strength.

  • Explain the concept of liminal time - the unknown period between “no longer and not yet.”

The Biofield in Health & Healing: Scientific Update &
Practical Applications
Beverly Rubik, PhD

1.5 CE Hours**

In this far-reaching presentation, Beverly will discuss the current research and practical applications of biofield science. The “anatomy” of the biofield – chakras, meridians, and radiant energy emission – will be described. Research shows changes (usually improvements) in the biofield following mind-body practices and various biofield therapies. Research on the effects of electromagnetic stress shows unhealthy changes in the biofield, especially in those who are electrosensitive. You will learn various ways in which the biofield can be measured and how this can help your clinical work.  You will also learn about some of the significant health challenges we face from wireless communication radiation, including cell phones, and ways that we can reduce our exposure.


  • Describe the human biofield and its various components.

  • Describe 2 methods of biofield assessment and discuss how these assessment techniques can be clinically useful, with examples.

  • List 2 ways that our increasing exposure to electromagnetic radiation from wireless communication devices affects the biofield.


Beverly Rubik, PhD, is internationally renowned for her research on the human energy field and is president and founder of the nonprofit laboratory, Institute for Frontier Science, in Oakland, California. There she measures the biofield and investigates health effects of wireless communication frequencies. Beverly is also adjunct faculty at three universities.

Change Your Genes, Change Your Life: Creating
Optimal Health with the New Science of Epigenetics
Kenneth R. Pelletier, PhD, MD

1.5 CE Hours**

Our DNA is not our destiny! In fact, with rare exception, our health is almost completely reliant upon lifestyle choices, including what we eat, how we handle stress, the strength of our relationships, and the toxicity of our environment. Through epigenetics, we now know that it is how our individual genes respond to these factors that creates a unique internal biochemistry that literally turns genes on or off. Assessing and managing this biochemical environment has opened the door to “personalized medicine” and will become the standard reference for guiding specific lifestyle changes that will optimize our health and longevity. 


  • Define epigenetics.

  • Describe the differences between the two basic types of stress response.

  • Name 3 of the 7 basic biochemical pathways in the body governed by epigenetics.


Kenneth R. Pelletier, PhD, MD, is a clinical professor of medicine at the University of California School of Medicine, San Francisco (UCSF). At the UCSF School of Medicine, he is director of the Corporate Health Improvement Program (CHIP), a research program between CHIP and 15 of the Fortune 500 corporations. He is author of 13 books on integrative medicine, including his new book, Change Your Genes – Change Your Life: Creating Optimal Health Through the New Science of Epigenetics.

Jeffrey Rediger, MD, MDiv

We will examine the research and clinical underpinnings of a science of health and vitality, focusing on people with medical evidence for unexpected recovery from medical illnesses that are traditionally considered incurable. The role of psychology as it relates to a science of health and vitality will be discussed, as well as issues related to the democratization of medicine and psychology. At the end, we will explore the strengths and limitations of a biopsychosocial methodology using biomedical markers.


  •  Name 2 different factors that distinguish a science of disease from a science of health and vitality. 

  • Describe 2 research studies that have been done on the spontaneous remission of illness, and 2 research challenges associated with such investigations.

Invited Presentation

Healing the Divide: How Diversity & Energy Psychology Are Better Together
Victor Lee Lewis, MA

1 CE Hour*

The Western world is experiencing increasing strife around social differences. Diversity and inclusion education suffers from a limited understanding of how to heal stress and trauma. Energy psychology suffers from narrow demographics and cultural assumptions. 

A real conversation about diversity issues often brings up unregulated affect for each party. We need to acknowledge these issues before having the conversation. Integrating energy psychology with a “Name it to tame it” strategy can open the door to hard conversations that are generative and productive. This session will begin a conversation on how to heal the traumas we all have around these issues.


  • Name the 3 most important things to do to frame a “Hard but Good” conversation about diversity, race, class, gender, etc.

  • Describe at least 1 way to use EFT or other energy psychology method to reduce emotional reactivity to conversations about race, gender, class, and difference.


Victor Lee Lewis, MA, is founder and director of the Radical Resilience Institute, and Radical Resilience Coaching and Consulting. He is a thought leader in the world of diversity and inclusion education, best known for his leadership role in the award-winning race relations documentary, "The Color of Fear".

Consciousness & Healing: The Unfolding Vision
Larry Dossey, MD

1.5 CE Hours**

Human health and illness in the 20th century were overwhelmingly viewed through the lens of physicality and the proper functioning of the body. A major transition in this perspective has arisen as a consequence of new findings such as the human biofield and the nonlocal manifestations of consciousness. These discoveries are not only leading to new therapies; they also challenge our basic understanding of the nature of consciousness, including its origins and destiny. Larry will discuss these developments, with reference to recent findings in mainstream science and clinical medicine.


  • Define the major eras in medical science, beginning with the transition of medicine into a scientific discipline.

  • Describe the materialistic view of the origin and destiny of consciousness.

  • Describe 3 attributes of a nonlocal view of consciousness.

  • Describe a clinical example in which nonlocal factors of consciousness operate.

Larry Dossey, MD, is a physician of internal medicine. He was co-chair of the Panel on Mind/Body Interventions, National Institutes of Health. He co-founded and is currently executive editor of the peer-reviewed journal Explore: The Journal of Science and Healing. Dossey lectures widely about the role of consciousness and spirituality in health. He has published more than a hundred articles and is the author of thirteen books, including Healing Words  and One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Mind.
