New To This Site? Welcome!

Thank you SOOO much for joining the revolution to put the "care" back in health care by becoming a community member here at!  When we first posted this site, our intention was to give everyone who wants to be part of the solution a chance to get involved. But the community is blissfully snowballing into something much bigger, so we wanted to give you a heads up.

We are planning big things for this site, which will include:

  • A whole new Wordpress website in addition to a community forum
  • Blogs that correspond with each stone of the Whole Health Cairn (Relationships, Work/Life Purpose, Creativity, Spirituality, Sexuality, etc.)
  • Ways you can get involved on a grass roots level to influence how health care is delivered and received in your neck of the woods
  • A directory of health care providers and healers that embrace this enlightened form of health care so you can find the right support on your healing journey (or if you're a health care provider or healer, how clients can find you)
  • Guidance with how you can write The Prescription for yourself
  • Resources and products that will help you nurture every stone in your Whole Health Cairn
  • Forums for putting into practice the 6 Steps To Healing Yourself that are taught in Mind Over Medicine
  • Videos, articles, documentaries and other curated content that will help us collectively envision and bring into being a healed health care system
  • And more...

Lissa has been busy spreading her vision for how to heal health care at hospitals, performing art centers, and other gatherings around the country as part of her book tour for her New York Times bestselling book Mind Over Medicine. She also just wrapped up filming Heal Yourself: Mind Over Medicine, a 90 minute public television special that will air on PBS stations nationwide in September 2013.

We were initially planning to throw a launch party July 11, but because wants to be something even bigger than we originally envisioned, we're delaying the official launch until January 2014.  Right now we have just over 1,000 members, but by the time we launch and Lissa's public television special has aired live, we expect thousands more.

In the interim, feel free to take advantage of the resources we have now!

You can participate by:

  • Download Lissa's free ebook 12 Ways You Can Help Heal Health Care, which is available on the site
  • Watch Lissa's 2 TEDx talks (she's about to give her third in August!) and spread the word
  • Join the discussions on the forum and make your voice known
  • Check out the resources we've posted in the Resources section of the site
  • Order Lissa's book Mind Over Medicine, share it with your health care providers or clients, or host a book club around the ideas presented in it
  • Get ready to participate in Lissa's 40 day teleclass series Take Back Your Health (we'll be announcing details soon!)
  • Add your name to the waiting list for the 2014 Whole Health Medicine Institute programs here

We hope you'll stick with us as we build the rest of this site, so stay tuned! Thank you again for your participation, your patience, and your commitment to being part of the solution.

With love and gratitude,

The team

Arianna Huffington and "The Kingdom of Heaven Within"

Standing in line to hear Arianna Huffington speak at San Francisco’s Davies Symphony Hall last month – one of only a small handful of men in a sea of women – was an eye-opening experience for this first-time visitor to the renowned columnist’s prodigious fan club. Who knew that this politician turned publisher would be able to fill the auditorium’s nearly 3,000 seats?Once her presentation began, however, it was clear that the huge…See More

The Role of Spirituality in Health Care

In 2002, Dr. Donald Moss, then president of the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB), decided to devote his entire annual meeting to exploring “the role of spirituality in health care.” Given the growing interest in the subject at that time, this seemed like a good idea – just not one that was unanimously embraced. One member of…See More
