Spirituality, Faith and Healing are the subjects of the next series on the Holistic Health Show. Dr Bernie Siegel and Dr Harold Koenig were selected for the opening of this series but because of the length of the interviews they will be scheduled separately for this and the next show. On this show, Dr Carl O Helvie, Host, will interview Dr Siegel and Leslie Davenport.

Dr Bernie Siegel who prefers to be called Bernie is known internationally and consequently needs no introduction to many throughout the world and has touched the lives of many of those. In 1979, he began to talk about patient empowerment and the choice to live fully and die in peace. As a physician, who has cared for and counseled innumerable people who’s mortality has been threatened by an illness, Bernie embraces a philosophy of living and dying that stands at the forefront of the medical ethics and spiritual issues our society grapples with today. He continues to assist in the breaking of new ground in the field of healing and personality struggling to live the message of kindness and love.

Bernie attended Colgate University and Cornell University Medical College and holds membership in two scholastic honor societies, Phi Beta Kappa and Alpha Omega Alpha and graduated with honors. His surgical training took place at Yale New Haven Hospital, West Haven Veteran’s Hospital and Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. He retired from practice as an assistant clinical professor of surgery at Yale of general and pediatric surgery in 1989 to speak with patients and their caregivers.

In 1979 he originated Exceptional Cancer Patients, a specific form of individual and group therapy utilizing patients; drawings, dreams, images and feelings. The physical, spiritual and psychological benefits that followed led to his desire to make everyone aware of his or her healing potential.

In 1986 his first book, Love Medicine & Miracles was published and this redirected his life. In 1989, Peace, Love & Healing and in 1993 How to Live Between Office Visits followed. In 1998, Prescriptions for Living, was published and in 2003, Help Me to Heal and 365 Prescriptions for the Soul followed. In 2004, Smudge Bunny and in 2005, 101 Exercises for the Soul and 2006, Love, Magic & Mud Pies followed. His latest book, Love, Hope & Healing was published in 2009.

My second guest, Leslie Davenport has unique qualifications in the Body-Mind-Spirit field. San Francisco chronicle’s dance critic, Allan Ulrich reviewed Leslie as a professional dancer endowed with “a superior sense of balance….and powers of communication that set her apart from the heard.” As a psychotherapist in practice for 20 years, she understands the impact of thoughts and emotions. And a passion for the mystery of the human spirit drew her to become an ordained interfaith minister in 1984. Leslie has braided her expertise with body-mind-spirit into her book, Healing and Transformation Through Self Guided Imagery released by Celestial Arts/Random House.

She is a founding member of the Institute for Health and Healing at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, which brings holistic care into the heart of conventional medicine. Leslie teaches in their Integrative Medicine Program. Here book and expert advice have appeared in a number of magazines including Family Circle, Natural Health, Great Health, Body + Soul, Shift, and San Francisco Medicine. A sought after speaker, she lectures in a broad range of settings that include KRON Television, the National Wellness Conference, the Commonwealth Club, to name a few.
