On Tuesday, June 14, 2011, My Mind My Health hosted by Dr. Vernon Barksdale for Voice America satellite radio airs episode 12 entitled, “Many Roads: A Brief View of Our Diverse yet Common Roads of Transcendence” with special guests.
Our 13-week series began with the discussion of the medical facts that support the power of mind within the body and as interface with our spiritual existence. Across cultures and centuries, medicine and man’s spirituality have been one, separated by devotion to science or to faith. Now, as new partners, they bring optimal wellness. So let’s look at some of the different spiritual and cultural strengths of east and west, of mind and heart, when it comes to promoting wellness. What can these different and diverse cultures offer to promote our wellness? What do they have in common? We have heard from some thought leaders. Now, let’s hear from people who are searching and finding answers they are putting to use for daily well-being as well as for helping others overcome health challenges. We have some young and exciting people to learn from today. We’ll also return some of our prior guests to join our discussion.
