Guest Speaker: Joyce Hawkes, PhD
NDEr, Healer, Cell Biologist, Author of "Cell Level Healing" and "Resonance: Nine Practices for Harmonious Health and Vitality.", from Seattle....
A passionate and productive scientist, student, mystic, teacher and
healer, Dr Joyce Hawkes is internationally recognized for her work as a
research scientist and her more recent work as a teacher of Cell-Level
Her early work on the biophysics of cell structure and function
included a position as a Postdoctoral Fellow with the National
Institutes of Health. She published nearly 50 papers, abstracts, and
book chapters. The innovative excellence of her research earned her
election to the position of Fellow in the American Association for the
Advancement of Science, a position which she maintains presently.
In 1984, following a Near-Death Experience, she changed careers and
embarked on an extensive exploration of spiritual and healing
traditions. Recognized on first sight by her indigenous teachers as
authentically and exceptionally gifted, she was invited into the native cultures of healing wisdom by those who had not previously taken Western students.
Nearly three months living in the Philippines and work with a
native healer preceded her exploration of additional SE Asian healing
practices. A month long stay in South India and six trips to Bali to
work intensively with two native Hindu priest/shamans immersed her in
Eastern philosophy, remote village life, and first-hand experience of
numerous practical applications of indigenous healing modalities.
With thirty two years experience working as a spiritual counselor,
healer, and seminar leader across the USA and abroad,
Joyce combines her rigorous background as a scientist and her compassion as a healer in her presentations and writing.
Her book: *Cell-Level Healing. The Bridge from Soul to Cell (Oct 2006)* demonstrates effective ways to harmonize spirituality and Western science. A popular seminar leader and conference presenter, she has also appeared on radio: Coast to Coast in the US and Canada; on local, national, and international TV; and at major global conferences to speak about her insights and successful applications of Cell-Level healing for optimal health.
Her second book *Resonance: Nine Practices for Harmonious Health and Vitality* explores the uncharted interfaces between science and spirit in relation to health and well-being.
Reviews of Joyce's book: *Cell-Level Healing. The Bridge from Soul
to Cell (Oct 2006)*
"*Cell-Level Healing* is a remarkable bridge between conventional cell
biology and the far reaches of self and spiritual healing. Dr. Hawkes
skillfully combines her solid scientific grounding and experience in
mainstream biophysics with personal insights gained from a near death
experience and extensive training in the alternative healing arts.
Hawkes beautifully demonstrates how science and spirituality can
peacefully coexist and inform each other in beneficial and refreshing
ways.” —Dean Radin PhD, Senior Scientist, Institute of Noetic Sciences
“*Cell-Level Healing* is quite simply the whole exciting truth about how
and why our consciousness is key to our physical health and well-being.”
—Christiane Northrup, M. D., author of *Mother-Daughter Wisdom*, *The
Wisdom of Menopause*, and *Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom*
“A remarkable book. *Cell-Level Healing* provides the reader with a poetic
and visual text on self-healing and demonstrates how science and
spirituality need not be opponents but can serve as allies in the
reader’s transformation. Dr. Joyce Hawkes has created a delightful
user-friendly volume that can be read, savored, and re-read—one that is
both simple and profound.” —Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., Saybrook Graduate
School and Research Center; co-editor of Varieties of Anomalous
Experience; and author of *Extraordinary Dreams and How to Work with Them*
“Science and spirit are brought together with beauty and discernment in
this exquisite book. Joyce Hawkes offers us a vision of healing that
truly manages to bridge worlds which only remain separate at our peril.
‘The Bridge from Soul to Cell’ is more than a good metaphor: it links
wisdom and science and by doing so opens the way for great healing.”
—James O’Dea, president, Institute of Noetic Sciences
“Joyce Hawkes blends and makes whole our splintered perceptions of the
roles of science and spirit in healing. Her beautiful vision of how
cells house the very power of the universe, speaks to a greater
understanding and the interconnectedness of the spiritual in the
physical. In this broader understanding, Joyce bridges the gulf between
the tangible and the intangible. She offers up the potential for
self-healing, always waiting within us. Her book is both art and science
for healing” —Joan C. King, Ph. D., professor emerita at Tufts
University School of Medicine, author of the Cellular Wisdom series
“The intrinsic nature of our being is primordially pure, luminous
awareness—and mind and body are the unified expression of that reality.
Dr. Hawkes’s insightful work brings a depth of scientific knowledge
together with the tools for applying that understanding in a way that
relieves suffering and promotes spiritual awareness. Cell-Level Healing
sheds welcome light on the interdependence of our inner and outer
worlds. It provides practical guidance for working with the challenges
of illness while supporting our journey of personal transformation.
—Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, founder and president of Nalandabodhi and
Nitartha International, author of *Wild Awakening: The Heart of Mahamudra
