returning to the wisdom of ancient healing
Fred explores the wisdom teachings of many ancient cultures. Beginning with the Greeks, and expanding to many other enlightened cultures.
Excerpts from the chapter-
“I am convinced a deeper understanding of the mind-body connection, our alignment to nature and the universe, and how we might integrate these concerns into more effective healing desperately needs to be reintroduced into our medical education.”
“After thousands of years, why did contemporary developed nations disregard the mind-body connection, as well as the importance of spirituality in healing? Surely, the great scientific innovations and breakthroughs by Kepler, Galileo, Newton, and others shifted our worldview towards science and technology, disconnecting us from the art of healing—and from the relationship to nature that was the precursor to our scientific mind set.”
Dr. Grover was fortunate to attend a reenactment of the Hippocratic Oath on the original Asclepieion as pictured here. He arrived on Kos with synchronistic timing back in 1996, not knowing the a historical medical society was doing this rare reenactment, until he heard about it the night prior in a museum goer!
