The Holistic Health Show with Dr Carl O Helvie and special guest Dr Brant Cortright
Brant Cortright, Ph.D., is a licensed clinical psychologist who works from a psycho-spiritual perspective. He has practiced depth psychotherapy for 30 years in numerous contexts, from hospitals and mental health centers, to workshops and private practice. For the past two decades he has been in private practice in San Francisco working primarily with individuals and couples.
A teacher of transpersonal psychology, Brant conducts workshops and lectures in Europe, India, and the United States. His book Psychotherapy and Spirit: Theory and Practice in Transpersonal Psychotherapy (SUNY Press) is widely used in the field. He has also authored numerous articles. For the past 20 years he has worked in the field of Integral Psychology, a synthesis of the two major streams of depth psychology – the humanistic-existential and contemporary psychoanalytic – within an integrating east-west framework.
Trained in contemporary psychoanalysis, gestalt therapy, and existential psychotherapy, Brant integrates Western psychology with Sri Aurobindo’s integral yoga and philosophy. A long-time practitioner of meditation and hatha yoga, he also draws from Buddhism, Krishnamurti, and mystical Christianity.
Brant is a Professor of Psychology and Director of the Integral Counseling Psychology program at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. He is the past Director of the Spiritual Emergence Network. His forthcoming book, Integral Psychotherapy: The Meeting of East and West will be published by SUNY Press in spring, 2007.
Beat the Odds. Avoid Chronic Illnesses and Prescribed Medications. The Holistic Health Show teaches you how using Mind, Body, Spirit, Relationship, Environment, and Political Interventions.
This show could save your life by providing you with comprehensive holistic interventions for staying well and overcoming illnesses. Staying healthy and overcoming illnesses involve a combination of body-mind-spirit-environment-relationship-political interventions. I believe these should be the most effective ones available and also the least caustic and invasive.
The host uses and recommends a combination of holistic interventions for maximum effectiveness in maintaining health but many guests will present an in depth discussion on one aspect of the whole. Interventions in the six areas identified above should be used together, however, for maximum effectiveness.
