Leonard Laskow is a Stanford trained physician, who has studied the healing power of love for the past 33 years. He coined the term Holoenergetic Healing, by which he means healing with the energy of the “whole.” Dr. Laskow found that it takes energy to maintain the appearance of separation and that as we bring ourselves into wholeness, the energy of separation is liberated. This energy can then be consciously directed to facilitate our body’s healing response. Dr. Laskow now teaches this process to healing professionals and lay people and is a consultant in Behavioral and Energy Medicine.
Dr. Laskow is a Life Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and former Chief of OB-GYN at the Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula in Carmel, California. He completed residency training at Stanford Medical Center and took a post-doctoral fellowship in Psychosomatic Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco where he was a member of the faculty. Dr. Laskow is a founding member of the Board of Directors of the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine and a former Scientific Advisory Board member of the Institute of Heartmath.
Author and Researcher
The principles of Holoenergetic® Healing are presented in Dr. Laskow’s breakthrough book, Healing with Love. Highly recommended by Deepak Chopra, Larry Dossey, and Dolores Krieger, this book uses ancient and cutting-edge healing techniques, self awareness, energy work, and practical exercises to help one directly experience love as a healing force. In it Dr. Laskow describes his laboratory research, which documents the effectiveness of heart-focused Holoenergetic techniques in significantly inhibiting the growth of tumor cells in tissue culture and bacterial growth in test tubes. In subsequent research, Dr. Laskow has shown that the molecular configuration and properties of water and the physical structure of DNA can be changed by conscious intention, imagery and love. (The book was originally published by Harper Collins and was translated and published in nine languages.) In 2016 Dr. Laskow published his second book For Giving Love.
Dr. Laskow has taught internationally at medical centers, universities, and holistic institutes, including the Esalen Institute, Omega, Interface, the New York Open Center, UCSF Medical Center, and the California Institute of Integral Studies. He has appeared on the “America’s Talking” television show, Jeffrey Mishlove’s TV series “Thinking Aloud,” and numerous other radio and TV programs. He also presented to the California Legislative Committee on Self Esteem.
