2023 Workshop Programme

Integrative & Personalised Medicine


We need to talk about the bodymind

29 Jun 2023
Mind & Body

With a rising interest in neuroscience, we have an opportunity, which we must not squander, to sophisticate our understanding of ourselves.
Iain McGilchrist (2009), in The Master and his Emissary

The world’s healing traditions have always sought to trigger self-healing, using touch, words, movement, art, ceremony, natural substances, food, exercise and harmonious living. The challenges confronting 21st century medicine are whole-person and whole-culture problems: chronic degenerative and inflammatory diseases, stress, environment and lifestyle-mediated diseases, addictions and psychological anguish.  Bio-technical single-solution approaches don’t cure them. Rather than confronting disease, medicine, as it catches up with 21st century science, will come to incorporate bodymind holism, co-evolution, and a deeper understanding of self-regulation and self-healing.  

Though skilled at waging war on disease, modern medicine does little to make peace in the bodymind. The emerging science of self-regulation and self-healing sees that body and mind are a unity. This workshop will explore this one-ness in theory and practice.
