NOTE FROM TED: While some viewers might find advice provided in this talk to be helpful as a complementary approach, please do not look to this talk for medical advice. We've flagged this talk for falling outside TEDx's curatorial guidelines. This talk only represents the speaker’s personal understanding of brain activity, near death experiences, and healing. TEDx events are independently organized by volunteers. The guidelines we give organizers are described in more detail here: http://storage.ted.com/tedx/manuals/tedx_content_guidelines.pdf
Joyce Hawkes, PhD is a biophysicist and cell-biologist turned healer. Honored with a National Achievement Award for her work with the effects of environmental pollutants on fish cells, a post-doctoral Fellow with National Institutes of Health, and elected to the position of Fellow in the American Association for Advancement of Science for her research work. Following a near-death experience, Joyce changed careers and embarked on an extensive exploration of indigenous spiritual and healing traditions which she incorporated in her books: Cell-Level Healing and Resonance. Joyce was featured on a national TV special with Diane Sawyer (seen on Turning Point and Good Morning America), interviewed by Art Bell and George Noory on Coast to Coast Radio and was filmed at Nihon University in Japan for a documentary that aired in 2005.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
