Modern Western culture has by in large neglected the importance of emotional and spiritual well-being in mental and physical healthcare. This limited perspective has contributed to the growing epidemic of mental health and psychosomatic disorders [including anxiety, depression, addiction, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)]. In such problems, the role of underlying emotional trauma has been similarly overlooked.
Approaches that address both underlying emotional trauma and the spiritual dimension of illness are providing new hope for many. Addressing unresolved trauma often leads to increased awareness and improvements in overall health.
Modern Spirit is dedicated to demonstrating the value of spiritual healing in modern healthcare by illuminating the intersection between biology, emotion and spirituality. As a non-profit dedicated to scientific research, community building, and educational programs, we are working to expand our culture’s capacity to heal.
Our first major initiative is the Modern Spirit Epigenetics Project ( MSEP ), developed during integrative work with traditional Amazonian healers. The Modern Spirit Epigenetics Project is based at the University of Southern California (USC) Dept. or Psychiatry in Los Angeles and is being conducted in collaboration with the Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) .
Modern Spirit is also dedicated to building community. Our network extends outward from our base in the Phoenix Metro area across the Earth.
Modern Spirit is developing educational programs for both healthcare workers and the larger community; drawing upon collaborative efforts between Western medical practitioners, research scientists, integrative healthcare providers, spiritual practitioners and traditional healers.”
