The word healing comes from the same root as wholeness—a sense of connectedness, of being one with ourselves, other people, and the world around us.
In my years as a physician and surgeon, I have come to view illness as separation, and healing as the restoration of our natural state of wholeness.
Our individualistic, highly rational society encourages the illusion of separation—the belief that our minds are somehow separate from our bodies and that people are isolated from one another. It takes energy to maintain separation—energy that is often experienced as pain or illness.
I have coined the term Holoenergetic® Healing to describe a method that allows us to dispel the illusion of separateness and to heal using the awareness and energy of the whole.
Unconditional love—for self as well as others—is a crucial element of this method. Love isn’t just the stuff of poets and mystics. It is also a profound tool for facilitating the body’s natural healing processes.
I have done laboratory experiments which suggest that focused, loving energy can create results not dreamed possible…it may affect bacterial growth in test tubes, unwind and entwine DNA molecules, and inhibit the growth rate of tumor cells in tissue culture.

Holoenergetic Healing is certainly not intended to replace Western medicine. The medical practices developed by Western society are of tremendous value in treating acute illness, serious infection, trauma, and other disorders. But these practices represent only part of the healing tools available to us today. We can benefit greatly by making use of both approaches.
The Holoenergetic model allows us to go beyond relief of symptoms and connect with the fundamental source of separation. This is frequently a long-past, deeply troubling experience, which we interpreted in a way that initially helped us cope—but ultimately cut us off from a part of ourselves.
Example: Someone who was punished and humiliated as a child for something he/she didn’t do may have carried into adulthood the unconscious belief: No matter how hard I try, I’m bad and deserve to suffer. One way this person expresses this loss of faith in his/her right to happiness is through the physical pain of illness.
Other common themes that may be expressed through illness include difficulties accepting love: I’m not good enough; receiving pleasure, expressing anger, forgiving, and trusting.
Holoenergetic® Tracing and Forgiveness Processes
gives us a way to identify and understand these limiting patterns and beliefs, release them, and replace them with life-affirming feelings of safety, nurturance, and love.
They are based on the awareness that as we come into wholeness through love, the enormous energy we use to maintain the illusion of separation from Unity is liberated and can be directed to heal the physical body, resolve emotional issues, enhance creativity, and support personal transformation.
