Leonard Laskow, M.D. is a Stanford-trained physician who has studied and practiced the healing power of love for more than 25 years. He developed a powerful process, Holoenergetic Healing, which means healing with the energy of the "whole." In his research and practice Dr. Laskow found that it takes energy to maintain the illusion of separation from unity. As we bring ourselves into wholeness, however, the energy of separation is liberated and can then be consciously directed to facilitate the body's healing response. He now teaches this process to health and healing professionals and lay people alike.
The principles of holoenergetic healing are presented in Dr. Laskow's book, "Healing with Love: A Breakthrough Mind/Body Medical Program for Healing Yourself and Others". Highly recommended by Deepak Chopra, Larry Dossey, and Dolores Krieger, this book uses ancient and cutting-edge healing techniques, self awareness, energy work, and practical exercises to help one directly experience love as a healing force. In it Dr. Laskow describes his laboratory research, which documents how heart-focused holoenergetic techniques significantly inhibit the growth of tumor cells in tissue culture and bacterial growth in test tubes. In subsequent research he demonstrated that the molecular configuration and properties of water and the physical structure of DNA can be changed by conscious intention, imagery, and love. The book has sold over 30,000 copies in eight languages.
A Life Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Dr. Laskow has served as Chief of OB-GYN at the Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula in Carmel, California. He did residency training at Stanford Medical Center and took a post-doctoral fellowship in Psychosomatic Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, where he was a member of the faculty. Dr. Laskow is a founding diplomate of the Board of Directors of the American Board of Holistic Medicine. He currently has a practice in behavioral and energy medicine at the Clear Center of Health in Mill Valley, California.
