Larry Dossey is living proof that we need not censor the fullness of our vision to satisfy established standards of respectability. With a series of groundbreaking books that began with Space, Time and Medicine in the early 1980s and first attained bestseller status with Healing Words in the early 1990s, Dossey has played a pivotal role in accomplishing something that until recently seemed impossible: mainstreaming the concepts of nonlocal mind and action-at-a-distance as scientifically sound and medically valuable.
Dr. Dossey, a Texas native who lives in New Mexico, is an internal medicine physician who served as a battalion surgeon for the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. He is a former Chief of Staff of Medical City Dallas Hospital, and former co-chairman of the Panel on Mind/Body Interventions at the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, which is part of the National Institutes of Health. Dossey is executive editor of the peer-previewed journal Explore: The Journal of Science and Healing and was the founding editor-in-chief of Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine. He is the author of twelve books on the role of consciousness and spirituality in health, which have been translated into many languages around the world. His most recent book is ONE MIND: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters.
