Widely acclaimed for his role in creating the field of Mind-Body Medicine, Dr. Emmett Miller continues to apply his innovative thinking in the development of new approaches and techniques of Integrative Medicine, psychotherapy, wellness, stress management, psychoneuroimmunology, meditation, guided imagery and self-hypnosis for optimal health and performance.

Preview of Dr. Miller’s Talk

In this presentation we will examine, experientially as well as intellectually, the power of the transpersonal perspective to produce transformational (vs. linear) change and mind-tools we can use to upgrade our mental operating systems to embrace the transpersonal paradigm.

At the intellectual level, we will examine the phenomenon of Second Order Change, which is the basis of all transformation. Intentional transformation requires a shift in the level of thinking to a higher point in the holarchy of the system – point of greater access to wisdom. At the level of the individual or the collective, this is transpersonal.

At the experiential level, we will explore mind-tools that allow us to step beyond our personal and sociocultural illusions, biases, and prejudices to directly experience the transpersonal level and channel its wisdom and guidance.

At the collective level, we will explore ways to integrate the transpersonal perspective – the key to our resilience and sustainability – individually and as a group.

The tools we will employ will include presence, meditation, mindful imagery, scientific logic, and emotional accessing. Our past is not our potential; beyond our denial, illusions, and prejudices lies a new world of possibilities.
