Ernest L. Rossi, Ph.D. is an internationally renowned therapist, teacher and pioneer in the psychobiology of mind-body healing. The author of more than 20 professional books, Dr. Rossi worked with Milton Erickson for eight years and coauthored four classic volumes on hypnotherapy with him. Rossi has also edited four volumes of Erickson's Collected Papers and three volumes of Erickson's Seminars, Workshops and Lectures. He has been conducting research in the psychobiology of ultradian rhythms and their relation to mind-body healing and psychotherapy for over two decades. Several of Dr. Rossi's most recent publications -- including the update of Dreams, Consciousness, Spirit; Mind-Body Therapy; and the bestselling The Twenty-Minute Break -- are also available.
Gathering essential concepts from biology, medicine, neuroscience, and psychology, Ernest Rossi has forged a revolutionary new paradigm that encompasses mind, body, and spirit. An applied philosophy, this integration -- Psychosocial and Cultural Genomics -- has broad and specific implications for the human condition.
Beginning on a personal note, the author traces his own recent journey from stroke victim through rehabilitation to recovery. On this journey, where he was not only a passenger but a guide, Rossi's full psychotherapeutic repertoire was called upon to stimulate activity-dependent gene expression and cerebral plasticity. As he notes in the closing sentence of this opening chapter: "This takes us quite beyond my personal story to a deepening exploration of the co-creation between consciousness and nature in human experience that is the main subject of this book."
A pioneer in psychobiology research, Dr. Rossi shares here his latest theoretical constructs as they relate to a unified approach to mind-body healing and an internal self-healing vocabulary.
