“Your head will collapse, but there’s nothing in it and you’ll ask yourself:
‘Where is my mind?’” – The Pixies
This week on One Cell, One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy™ welcomes back Dr. David Gersten, author of Are You Getting Enlightened Or Losing Your Mind? to continue their discussion about his book and prevailing attitudes in our culture when it comes to the spiritual and paranormal.
Their continuing discussion will focus on the Miracles vs. Madness of Integrative Psychiatry. Said Dr. Gersten, “…after I had been in private practice, it struck me that psychiatry never bothered to even try to define what the mind is. Psychiatry now leans towards being the ‘brain field’ but psychiatry had not done anything I could perceive that increased our understanding of the mind…and treatment with medications was not based on any scientific lab tests. Neurology is really the ‘brain field.’ (Click On Image To Enlarge)
Only through decades of studying sacred Eastern texts did I begin to understand the mind. In the sixties, several Harvard psychologists were turning to the East for answers. They did an experiment in which a yogi was given LSD. And what happened? Nothing happened. That leads me to the belief that the mind is at least partly physical. The yogi, through spiritual practice, had transcended his mind. Hence, when given a powerful mind-altering drug, there was no mind to be acted upon.”
Within 3 years of entering private practice almost all of Dr. Gersten’s patients were taught meditation techniques, partially so that they could “witness” their mind. By witnessing the mind, a person quickly realizes that, if they can witness their mind, they are not their mind. And in that realization, therapy automatically shifts to a higher level of consciousness.
In his book, Dr. Gersten addresses a number of important issues. One was the development of Psycho-Spiritual Assessment (PSA), a simple 3-step process that helps people address any issue, symptom, goal, or experience. A psychiatrist must be a good diagnostician, and must be able to recognize and treat major mental illness. As he was learning the foundation of psychiatry, Dr. Gersten was quickly starting to fill in the gaps, using mind-body techniques, such as meditation, interactive guided imagery, and use of the breath as a way of creating “mental home base,” an internal “place” that an individual can return to over and over again, faster and faster. Once a mental home base is created, a wide array of other techniques and attitudes are added to the therapeutic mix.
Dr. Gersten continues his quest to understand the science and the art of healing. The science part involves his work in amino acid therapy. The spiritual part involves helping people name and identify their paranormal and spiritual experience, be able to talk about those experiences openly, and allow those powerful, positive experiences to become a guiding light of their lives, leading them closer to becoming more peaceful and loving, and ultimately being peace and love. Once a doctor is truly open to spirituality, his patients will start bringing up issues of God, spirituality, mission, and extraordinary spiritual experience…without being asked.
