SUE Speaks Podcast: Searching for Unity in Everything
11 | LARRY DOSSEY, M.D. – Physician and New York Times Best-Selling Author
Dr. Larry Dossey is a physician of internal medicine and former Chief of Staff of Medical City Dallas Hospital, who lectures around the world. He received his M. D. degree from Southwestern Medical School (Dallas), and trained in internal medicine at Parkland and the VA hospitals in Dallas. Dossey has lectured at medical schools and hospitals throughout the United States and abroad. In 1988, he delivered the annual Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Lecture in New Delhi, India, the only physician ever invited to do so. He is the author of twelve books dealing with consciousness, spirituality, and healing, including The New York Times bestseller, HEALING WORDS: THE POWER OF PRAYER AND THE PRACTICE OF MEDICINE, and, most recently, ONE MIND: HOW OUR INDIVIDUAL MIND IS PART OF A GREATER CONSCIOUSNESS AND WHY IT MATTERS. His books have been translated into many languages. Dr. Dossey is the former co-chairman of the Panel on Mind/Body Interventions, National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, National Institutes of Health. He is the executive editor of the peer-reviewed journal, EXPLORE: The Journal of Science and Healing. He is a member, as Suzanne is, of the prestigious Scientific & Medical Network (SMN), where he sometimes speaks at their events. SMN is a worldwide professional community and membership organization for open-minded, rigorous and evidence-based enquiry into themes bridging science, spirituality and consciousness. Dr. Dossey gave a moving talk at an event I was producing for TED a few years ago. And, his interview by Oprah, that we talk about in our podcast episode, was revelatory in authenticating the power of prayer to heal people. Dr. Dossey lives in Santa Fe with his wife, Barbara, a nurse-consultant and the author of several award-winning books.
