Map of the Spirit: Diagnosis and Treatment of the Spirit with Michael Cantwell, MD

As part of the California Institute of Integral Studies Fall 2014 Public Programs, Dr. Michael F. Cantwell will be giving a lecture on Friday 10/10 and workshop on Saturday 10/11 based on his award winning book, Map of the Spirit: Diagnosis and Treatment of the Spirit at CIIS.

Map of the Spirit presents a framework, developed by Dr. Cantwell, which describes human spiritual development and the process by which we construct and then live out our spiritual beliefs. According to Dr. Cantwell, all people, regardless of particular beliefs, pass through the same four stages of spiritual development-the Pre-awareness, Awareness, Commitment, and Union Stages. Blockages in this process give rise to Spiritual Stress, the spiritual roots of disease. Map of the Spirit introduces the concept of Spiritual Stress to explain how and how much spiritual issues influence our health.

The three-hour workshop (two sessions separated by a 15-minute break) allows for more in-depth exploration of Map of the Spirit’s two main concepts and introduction of two other concepts: Personal Spiritual Preferences and Spiritual Typing. This longer format allows for greater interaction between Dr. Cantwell and participants, greater discussion of clinical examples from the practices of both Dr. Cantwell and participants, and presentation of Map of the Spirit’s full Questionnaire (Questions 1 to 9).

After completion of the lecture and, to a much greater extent, after completion of the workshop, participants will understand how to:
1. Determine how much spirituality is affecting their (or their clients’) health
2. Determine where they are in the course of their (or their clients’) spiritual development (i.e., their current stage(s) of spiritual development),
3. Determine how to treat their (or their clients’) spirits (i.e., how to choose and implement spiritual interventions tailored to address their (or their clients’) particular spiritual challenges and decrease their Spiritual Stress).

Dr. Michael F. CantwellDr. Michael Cantwell is board-certified pediatrician who sees both children and adults in his holistic medicine practice at Rising Phoenix Integrative Medicine Center, in San Francisco. He is the recipient of the 2013 USA Best Book Award for Alternative Medicine and the 2014 Eric Hoffer First Horizon Award for his book, Map of the Spirit: Diagnosis and Treatment of the Spirit.

as written on Amerika Now website…

Every day, doctors are confronted with diseases that are incurable or difficult to treat.  Could it be that these challenging diseases don’t arise from patients’ bodies or minds but rather from their spirits?

Can treating the spirit heal disease and bring peace?

“Yes,” says Dr. Michael Cantwell, whose book, Map of the Spirit, affirms that people who are sick in spirit often present with physical or psychological problems.

“Western medicine has become increasingly aware that treating patients’ bodies and minds isn’t always enough,” he says.  “Sometimes, a patient’s spirit needs to be treated before their diseases can heal.”

He believes the roots of disease can lie in your body, mind, or spirit, and his book, Map of the Spirit, presents a universal, four-stage framework of human spiritual development — the process by which we determine and live out our spiritual beliefs.

“Until now, we’ve had no way to talk about, diagnose, or treat this spiritual aspect of health,” Cantwell says.

“We’d like to know when and how spirituality is affecting our health and how to treat our spirits,” Dr. Cantwell says.  “Sometimes, the best way to treat your disease is by treating your spirit.”
