Psychiatrist pioneering mind-body medicine and the role of imagery in healing.
"An acorn becomes an oak tree - that's part of a healing process … just as much as when a branch breaks off the oak tree that it seals up the hole so it doesn't lose its sap - those are both different forms of healing. So it's moving to your potential … although sometimes we think of healing as being a matter of survival, healing is also a matter of thrival. Thriving is what it is about."
