About Our Speakers
click here for the pdf documentAbout the Faculty – Santa Fe 2015 Larry Dossey, M.D. Title: Creativity and Nonlocal Mind: Implications of a Common ConsciousnessAuthor: (partial) One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters (Oct 7, 2014) Healing Words: The Power of Prayer and the Practice of Medicine (Jan 199) The Science of Premonitions: How Knowing the Future Can Help Us Avoid Danger, Maximize Opportunities, and Create… (May 2010) The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things: Fourteen Natural Steps to Health and Happiness (June 2007) Reinventing Medicine: Beyond Mind-Body to a New Era of Healing (Sept 2000) Prayer Is Good Medicine: How to Reap the Healing Benefits of Prayer (Jul 8, 1997) Healing Beyond the Body: Medicine and the Infinite Reach of the Mind (Oct 16, 2001) This distinguished Texas physician, deeply rooted in the scientific world, has become an internationally influential advocate of the role of the mind in health and the role of spirituality in healthcare. Bringing the experience of a practicing internist and the soul of a poet to the discourse, Dr. Larry Dossey offers panoramic insight into the nature and the future of medicine. An education steeped in traditional Western medicine did not prepare Dr. Dossey for patients who were blessed with “miracle cures,” remissions that clinical medicine could not explain. “Almost all physicians possess a lavish list of strange happenings unexplainable by normal science,” says Dr. Dossey. “A tally of these events would demonstrate, I am convinced, that medical science not only has not had the last word, it has hardly had the first word on how the world works, especially when the mind is involved.” The impact of Dr. Dossey’s work has been remarkable. Before his book Healing Words was published in 1993, only three U.S. medical schools had courses devoted to exploring the role of religious practice and prayer in health; currently, nearly 80 medical schools have instituted such courses, many of which utilize Dr. Dossey’s works as textbooks. In his book Recovering the Soul, he introduced the concept of “nonlocal mind” – mind unconfined to the brain and body, mind spread infinitely throughout space and time. Since then, “nonlocal mind” has been adopted by many leading scientists as an emerging image of consciousness. Dr. Dossey’s ever-deepening explication of nonlocal mind provides a legitimate foundation for the merging of spirit and medicine. The ramifications of such a union are radical and call for no less than the reinvention of medicine. www.dosseydossey.com Richard Kogan, M.D. Title: The Mind and Music of Scott JoplinDr. Kogan has a distinguished career both as a concert pianist and as a psychiatrist. He has been praised for his “eloquent, compelling, and exquisite playing” by the New York Times, and the Boston Globe wrote: “Kogan has somehow managed to excel at the world’s two most demanding professions.” Dr. Kogan has gained renown for his lecture/recitals that explore the role of music in healing and the influence of psychiatric and medical illnesses on the creative output of composers such as Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Schumann, Tchaikovsky, George Gershwin and Leonard Bernstein. He has given these presentations at music festivals, concert series, medical conferences, and scholarly symposia throughout the world. Dr. Kogan has recorded the DVD “Music and the Mind : The Life and Works of Robert Schumann” for Yamaha/Touchstar Productions, which we have in the lobby. Dr. Kogan has won numerous honors including the Concert Artists Guild Award and first prize in the Chopin Competition of the Kosciuszko Foundation Dr. Kogan is a graduate of the Juilliard School of Music Pre-college, Harvard College, and Harvard Medical School.

Both reading and writing create opportunities to learn so many things. A well-written poem or story is like a great painting or symphony—powerful enough to engage the human spirit. As an educator, she is interested in what influences an author. What connections were personally meaningful? Where does the writing come from? What experiences shaped this poem or that story? These questions are particularly important in our own area where there is such a strong link between those who live here and our beautiful sea and land. The best part of her day is when she sees the light come on as people learn to communicate. They are realizing their own source of power and I can see success in their future.

Jung’s The Red Book Summing up Mr. Hyman’s passion for his life’s work – When working in a high school many years ago, a parent said to me: “your work is your life isn’t it?” Somewhat irritated, he blurted back “No, my life is my work.” He didn’t have any idea where that clarity came from at the time, but it was that which would drive all of his actions after that. It continues to be his passion to experience that degree and essence of life as much as possible. Patients, strangers that cross his path, a book, a song, the way the sun streams through the trees across the street in a moment – each provides that opportunity and is impacted by attitude and the right frame of mind.

She is an active member of the Austin Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology and is trained in EMDR and has maintained a long-term psycho-dynamic group for adults for 20 years. An early love of genetics and cellular biology has grown into increasing usefulness in understanding the biology and psycho-pharmacology that is an integral part of current psychiatry and in understanding child development and psychiatric disorders of childhood. By looking at the biological, psychological, and social issues of every patient, she feels better able to help the patient choose the treatment modalities that might alleviate suffering. Dr. Roberts utilizes a variety of techniques with patients and could best describe her approach as psychodynamic. She has had a dog in the office since 1990, and her respect and affection for the use of therapy dogs has grown. The border collies act as the office “receptionist”, and most patients enjoy the love and affection they provide with no risk of violating personal boundaries in the therapy. The dogs, who are obedience trained from 2 months of age, are also useful examples with children about behavior and obedience.
