A rare opportunity to see Ken Wilber in person, in Boulder,
Appearing with his dear friend, physician and fellow philosopher, Roger Walsh …
“… is there some way to practice medicine that surrenders not one ounce of the rigorously scientific, empirical, and clinical dimensions that will always be a cornerstone of any modern scientific system of health care … but also makes room, in a coherent fashion, for all of those other dimensions of being-in-the-world, dimensions that, if ignored or repressed, not only subtract from one’s humanity but from being a truly effective physician?” – Ken Wilber
From foreword to Integral Medicine: A Noetic Reader, Editors: Marilyn Schlitz & Tina Hyman (Read more here)
Join us for a Saturday afternoon, June 4, for an exploration of healing and health, featuring author and integral philosopher Ken Wilber, with Australian professor of Psychiatry, Philosophy and Anthropology, Roger Walsh.
In this relaxed three-hour session at our old church in downtown Boulder, you will gain insights into a more comprehensive approach to health and medicine, one that respects — and integrates — all streams of human wisdom and healing.
Whether you are a professional health practitioner in any traditional medical setting, alternative health care provider, therapist, energy worker/healer, are dealing with health problems yourself, or are a citizen interested in staying healthy in ALL of who you are, you will gain gems of knowledge at this gathering. This event will invite new ways of thinking about one of the most provocative and important issues facing our nation and world. Health care, medicine and healing are inextricably and inevitably with us for life! So let us engage the FULL health of our communities and ourselves with deep care.

Ken Wilber has lived with a chronic disease for many years, discovering that it has both limited his life and also liberated him in profound and unexpected ways. Ken is author of the best-selling and beloved book, Grace and Grit: Spirituality and Healing in the Life and Death of Treya Killam Wilber, a tremendously moving account of the passing, shortly into their marriage, of Ken’s wife, Treya.
Through these trials, Roger Walsh has been Ken’s physician, friend and counsel. With the wealth of knowledge that Roger has researched and accumulated throughout the years as a medical and spiritual practitioner, he has written the highly recommended books, Essential Spirituality: The 7 Central Practices to Awaken Heart and Mind and World of Shamanism: New Views of an Ancient Tradition.
It is a privilege to host these two leaders in the exciting and emerging field of integral health and healing.
Ken Wilber is the most widely translated academic writer in America, with 25 books translated into some 30 foreign languages, and is the first philosopher-psychologist to have his Collected Works published while still alive. Wilber is an internationally acknowledged leader and the preeminent scholar of the Integral stage of human development, which continues to gather momentum around the world. His many books, all of which are still in print, can be found at Amazon.com. Some of his more popular books include Integral Spirituality; No Boundary; Grace and Grit; Sex, Ecology, Spirituality; and the “everything” books: A Brief History of Everything(one of his largest selling books) and A Theory of Everything (probably the shortest introduction to his work). Ken Wilber is the founder of Integral Institute, Inc., the co-founder of Integral Life, Inc. www.kenwilber.com

Roger Walsh graduated with first-class honors from the University of Queensland with degrees in psychology, physiology, neuroscience, and medicine, while he worked as a circus acrobat and held world records in high diving and the trampoline. He went to Stanford University as a Fulbright scholar and passed licensing exams in medicine, psychology, and psychiatry before moving to the University of California at Irvine where he is currently professor of psychiatry, philosophy, and anthropology. His initial research and writings were in the area of neuroscience and received multiple national and international awards.
Initially extremely skeptical of all things religious and spiritual, he found his attitudes challenged and changed after he tried meditation for himself. He began to research meditation and related areas and to write extensively on topics such as spirituality and psychological well-being. His text on meditation received the “Outstanding Academic Book of 1984″ Award, while his book, Paths Beyond Ego was a “Transformational Books” finalist and was listed among Common Boundary’s “One Hundred Most Influential Psycho-spiritual Books of the Century”. All told, his writings and research have received over twenty national and international awards, while his teaching has received one national award and he has been six times voted “Outstanding Teacher of the Year” by students at the University of California. www.drrogerwalsh.com.
