1) What is Second Mind Medicine? Second Mind Medicine is an entirely different way of understanding healing, based on a timeless, less-recognized understanding of the mind-body connection. It asks us to reconsider why we believe mind and body are different, as well as what science, philosophy, and ancient wisdom traditions have to say on the matter. These findings will be foundation of our fast-changing healthcare system in the near future, yet very few understand these concepts.
2) Why is Second Mind Medicine important? Although we study the body in detail in medical school, we don't study the anatomy of the mind. Furthermore, our understanding of the body stops at the micro level of chemistry, ignoring the findings of physics over the last 100 years. Second Mind Medicine assimilates the findings of anatomy, physics, and philosophy to help shed light on some of the biggest problems in healthcare, including incurable diseases, mental illness, and clinician burnout and suicide.
