The medicine of the 20th century was about the treatment of illness. The medicine of the 21st century is about wellness. Crossing the Healing Zone advances the new concepts of the emerging frontiers of integrative medicine, bringing together Eastern and Western healing traditions and merging body, mind, and spirit in a Jungian perspective. The journey through the Healing Zone that Dr. Bedi proposes is guided by archetypes and myths, active imagination, dreams and synchronicities, and the neuroplastic mysteries of our complex physical reality.
The Healing Zone can be described in many ways--as the fourth dimension of consciousness, as quantum consciousness, as Jung's "psychoid space," as the Buddhist Third Way, or as the "gap" between the ego and the soul. Here, we can access all three areas of the triune brain--reptilian, limbic, and neocortical--all of which must be addressed in order to achieve full integration and healing. The Healing Zone is a bridge between the ego and the soul--a bridge that we can cross to reach the healing wisdom of the universe.
Dr. Bedi outlines how to work with psychological and soul processes in moving from illness to wellness, and provides practical methods and techniques that can help readers access and engage the Healing Zone. The book contains informative and visual guidelines and practices that can help us create and manage our own personal wellness programs and become full and active partners in our own journeys from illness to wellness.
