'Biofield of Dreams' Offers New Way of Seeing the Body

To culminate his tenure as an Institute Scholar, Richard Hammerschlag, PhD, delivered a Capstone presentation: "Biofield of Dreams: Energy Physiology as a Basis for Integrative Health."

Dr. Hammerschlag explored the possible role of connective tissue in monitoring and regulating the flow of energy, integrating the biofields inside our bodies with the biofields around us. This model offers a bridge between the Eastern, holistic view of the body and the conventional Western orientation, which sees the body as many independent units.
