Integrative Oncology: Making Choices to Fit in While Changing the Culture
I find it difficult to truly define integrative oncology. Statements about how we look after the “whole person”, pay attention to lifestyle and stress, or even spirituality seem ambiguous and incomplete. All caregivers pay attention to these things, perhaps some more than others, but is it the extent to which we devote time to holistic health or the fact we do it that makes us unique? Furth ermore, what is included in integrative clinics vs. other settings is changing as we gather more evidence and complementary therapies become more accepted. (Source: Explore)

Feasibility and acceptability of mindfulness for survivors of homicide and their providers
This study uses participatory research methods with survivors of homicide and their service providers to explore the feasibility and acceptability of a culturally-adapted mindfulness intervention for stress reduction and resilience in homicide survivors. Procedures: Our mixed methods approach included: (a) previewing a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program with providers and Survivors; (b) using their iterative feedback during focus groups to revise the curriculum; and (c) studying the acceptability of the adapted curriculum for survivors through focus group and standardized data collection.

The shock of charlottesville: unmasking racism in healthcare
As I write, America is on edge following a violent confrontation in Charlottesville, Virginia on 12 August between white supremacists and Nazi supporters on one side and counter-protestors on the other. The proximate cause of this mayhem was a disagreement about whether a public statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee should be removed. Banners of Nazi swastikas, Confederate flags, and KKK symbols were carried by torch-toting protestors in common cause. Shouts such as “white lives matter” and “Jews will not replace us” erupted from the protestors. (Source: Explore)

Intentions: A Major Source of Outcomes
As we engage in mindfulness meditation, or in other inward-looking practices such as self-reflection or contemplative prayer, we gradually become aware of the deeper aspects of ourselves and how those aspects affect the reality in which we live. One of those aspects – our intentions — plays a significant role in our effectiveness as a leader. (Source: Explore)

Mind –Matter Interactions and the Frontal Lobes of the Brain: A Novel Neurobiological Model of Psi Inhibition
Despite a large literature on psi, which encompasses a range of experiences including putative telepathy (mind –mind connections), clairvoyance (perceiving distant objects or events), precognition (perceiving future events), and mind–matter interactions, there has been insufficient focus on the brain in relation to this controversial phenomenon. In contrast, our research is based on a novel neurobiologic al model suggesting that frontal brain systems act as a filter to inhibit psi and that the inhibitory mechanisms may relate to self-awareness.

Functional MRI Study to Examine Possible Emotional Connectedness in Identical Twins: A Case Study
In the present case study, we investigated possible emotional connectedness between monozygotic twins by means of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). During the experimental condition, Twin 2 was randomly selected to participate in the neuroimaging protocol while Twin 1 participated in the experimental condition outside the MRI scanner (none of them was aware of the experimental procedure). The experimental condition included two sessions with visual and acoustic stimuli, respectively. (Source: Explore)

To the best of our knowledge, there has been no study on yoga that includes both persons with multiple sclerosis (MS) and their family members. Because yoga has therapeutic effects in both persons with MS and healthy persons, we hypothesized that it would be an effective method to improve not only the physical and psychosocial status but also the time persons with MS and their family members spend together.

A systematic review of transcendent states across meditation and contemplative traditions
Across cultures and throughout history, transcendent states achieved through meditative practices have been reported. The practices to attain transcendent states vary from transcendental meditation to yoga to contemplative prayer, to other various forms of sitting meditation. While these transcendent states are ascribed many different terms, those who experience them describe a similar unitive, ineffable state of consciousness. Despite the common description, few studies have systematically examined transcendent states during meditation. (Source: Explore)

Can mindfulness training improve medication adherence? integrative review of the current evidence and proposed conceptual model
Medication adherence is a complex, multi-determined behavior that is often influenced by system- (e.g., cost), drug- (e.g., regimen complexity), and patient-related (e.g., depression) factors. System-level approaches (e.g., making medications more affordable) are critically important but do not address patient-level factors that can undermine adherence. In this paper, we identify patient-level determinants of non-adherence and discuss whether mindfulness-training approaches that target these determinants can help to improve adherence to medical treatment.

Mind in Deep Time: Original Participation and Re-enchantment of the World
This paper describes my experiences exploring consciousness as an artist-engraver, in particular the sense of reawakening the participatory primal mind which came about through the act of engraving. This ‘original participation’ is viewed as a fundamental characteristic of our early Acheuelan ancestors and evidence is presented to show that they possessed both a ‘modern’ aesthetic sense and also a prayerful, sacramental consciousness. It is suggested that this primal consciousness is a funda mental human quality which became eclipsed in the modern mind by the denial of participation and the Cartesia...
