Dr. Shapiro's model lights a fire of hope and possibility under traditional medical practice. It allows us to function under the umbrella of a great idea: bringing the wisdom of the sages to health care and the street. It spiritualizes the practice of medicine by infusing it with a story and a soul. It improves healthcare outcomes. Healing Power's contribution to medical practice and mind-body-spirit medicine is unique and powerful. I highly recommend this work.
