New Perspective

Current Western culture and healthcare has by in large neglected the importance of emotional and spiritual well-being in physical and mental healthcare. This oversight has contributed to the growing epidemic of mental health and psychosomatic disorders. For years, many individuals have been forced to travel abroad to find healing systems that go beyond the current cultural paradigm. These individuals have travelled far and wide to learn and seek healing from, for example, Eastern spiritualists and more recently from Amazonian shamans. Many have done so in an effort to address problems that were not adequately addressed by the predominant healthcare system. Modern Spirit joins the Integrative Medicine movement and draws upon the experience of indigenous healers and spiritual practitioners from all over the world, in order to bring this healing here.

Modern Spirit is also working to build our community and help connect those interested in spiritually-minded support and healthcare resources. Many individuals are going through different forms of spiritual crises, growth and development. Support and guidance through these experiences aid in the integration of our spiritual selves and support overall health. For example, in the case of those who have travelled to the Amazon for spiritual healing with traditional ayahuasqueros, many individuals need continued support in order to make the most of and integrate their experiences once back home. Continued support from a network of spiritually-minded community members can help to move the culture forward and maximize healing. Learn more...

Modern Spirit works to demonstrate the value of spiritual healing in modern healthcare, through education and research, and we are now focused on the Modern Spirit Epigenetics Project. This research project will be based at the University of Southern California under Dr. Rael Cahn MD PhD and will be conducted in collaboration with the MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies) MDMA-Assisted Psychotherapy for PTSD clinical trial.

Drawing from scientific research, clinical experience, and spiritual practice, Modern Spirit also works to provide integrative educational programs to the community and healthcare providers. We are currently developing educational content, which now includes our podcast and blog, and in the future will include live events and webinars. We hope to one day design curriculum for Continuing Education programs for doctors, nurses, psychologists and other healthcare professionals.
