Spirituality and Medicine
Two of my favorite topics, Spirituality and Medicine are the focus of this conversation today with Dr. Mary Jo Bulbrook. Like me, her career in bridging these worlds of conventional and non-conventional healing practices began over 40 years ago as a nurse.
It’s interesting as we discuss how much of our journeys have parallel influences: our long time practice of Energy Healing, teaching and integration of Spiritual perspectives in medicine and of course, following our intuitive Spiritual guidance.
We did all this as we expanded our roles as nurses as well as the role of nurses and other medical personnel everywhere with our programs and morphed into what is today an integrated form of a Modern Day Shaman/Medicine Woman.
Dr. Bulbrook is an elder in the Healing Touch community and can personally take credit for so many programs bringing Healing Touch all around the world as well as other Spiritually driven programs.
As a pioneer in blending western medicine and Indigenous Healers, Mary Jo has found incredible ways to bring organic energy healing to the forefront of medicine. She is the Dean of Complementary and Alternative Medicine at Akomai University in Hawaii and founder of the Australian Holistic Nurses Association, HELP, her Holistic Empowerment Learning Plan, TYLTEM; Transform Your Life Through Energy Medicine and so many others it’s impossible to list.
So, let it be known, that Dr. Bulbrook has devoted her life to spreading the word about Energy Therapies being the cornerstone for true healing on every level and there are few countries in the world that have not been touched by her work. Her clinic in Durham, N.C., the Triangle Holistic Center is the epicenter for her healing work, and educational programs.
What an incredible story she has to tell and we’re blessed to have the opportunity to welcome her to HeartShift Radio
ABOUT DR. MARY JO BULBROOK
Dr. Mary Jo Bulbrook is a spiritual/medical intuitive and founder of TYLEM™ (Transform Your Life through Energy Medicine). TYLEM™ is based on her distinguished 50 + year career as a university professor and clinical specialist in psychiatric mental health nursing. Check out the new certificate training programs: Spiritual ME, NEAR-HELP & Transitions Holistic Care in the events section.
From 1974-1984, she was a key figure in the development of world-renowned family therapist Virginia Satir’s teaching organization, Avanta Network. Drawing on their twelve years together, elements from Virginia’s teachings and philosophy were integrated with Dr. Bulbrook’s holistic nursing theory “Healing From Within and Without”.
Over the next decade, Dr. Bulbrook’s therapy training evolved into the “Energetic Healing” program. In 2004, the title of the program was changed to its current name of Transform Your Life through Energy Medicine (TYLEM), representing the growth and expansion from the original model. Today the work continues to advance worldwide.
Over the last three decades, Dr. Bulbrook has been a pioneer in Energy Medicine. She began teaching and practicing Therapeutic Touch and Touch for Health in the 1970’s and moved to teaching her own energy material in the 1980’s. Her work was recognized in 1989 when Dr. Bulbrook received Canadian Holistic Nurse of the Year Award.
From 1990-2004, Dr. Bulbrook was active in the leadership of Healing Touch. She developed both Healing Touch and her own program in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Peru, and Chile, as well as throughout the US and Canada. Then she was on the board of directors of the Association of Comprehensive Energy Psychology (ACEP) for 5 years followed by board member of the Touch For Health Kinesiology Association (TFHKA) for three years. She has collaborated with international healers such as Rosalyn Bruyere, South African Sangoma Credo Mutwa, Aborigine Elder Bob Randall, and Maori Tohuna Rose Pere.
In 2013 she hosted her own radio show with Voice America called “WISE CHATS” THAT ran until November 13, 2013. The shows are still available to listen to free of charge. From this rich background, she has created a highly effective and easy-to-implement model of advanced psycho-spiritual healing.
