Intentional Pauses and Prayer Lead to Healing? Yes says this M.D. in Cardiology. Part 5 – Diverse Perspectives on Healing

by Marilyn Schlitz, Ph.D., Dean of the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology at Sofia University and chair of the PhD in Transpersonal Psychology programs.

In Part Five of the series, Mitchell Krucoff, MD offers a perspective as a cardiologist who recognizes that the tools of transformation are accessible to us at all times — and in the simplest of ways. He shares a powerful story from his experience in a chaotic clinical environment and how committing to a moment of intentional pause, to a 60 second prayer, totally transformed the act of healing for him and his team.
