Saturday Luncheon Address
A pioneer in the integrative healthcare movement and the author of the groundbreaking Minding the Body, Mending the Mind, Joan Borysenko is also something of a polymath—a licensed psychologist with a doctorate in medical sciences from Harvard Medical School, a postdoc in cancer cell biology, another in behavioral medicine (under famed researcher Herbert Benson, who first identified the relaxation response), and a third in psychoneuroimmunology. She’s the author of 17 books that focus on various aspects of mind-body-spirit integration, including spirituality, diet, resilience, stress reduction, and the nature of love.
In our stressful, tech-obsessed, and data-based world, Borysenko reminds us that the nonlinear, nonquantitative wisdom of the heart and spirit is the source of peace, healing, and joy. In her address about the nature of the helping relationship, she’ll explore how the hard data of science itself demonstrates that the “soft” practices of love and compassion can transform and amplify the power of psychotherapy.
