 Course Description

What is this course about?

Each traditional, complementary or integrative healing practice has its own set of tools, terms and insights. These span the range of laboratory science, to traditional healing herbs, to refined spiritual practice. How can we find shared processes, shared levels of understanding? This session will work to create a bridge by exploring the dynamics of "warmth from physical warmth, to fever, to moral warmth” in order to craft a framework for interdisciplinary discussion, as well as a deeper appreciation of what we share as a healing community.
