Bridging Science & Spirituality part 2

Patty DeDominic, Author, coach and consultant to high achievers, and Patricia Diorio, intuitive spiritual counselor and media coach, interview Bruce H. Lipton, an internationally recognized leader in bridging science and spirit. Stem cell biologist, bestselling author of The Biology of Belief and recipient of the 2009 Goi Peace Award, he has been a guest speaker on hundreds of TV and radio shows, as well as keynote presenter for national and international conferences.

Dr. Lipton began his scientific career as a cell biologist. He received his Ph.D. Degree from the University of Virginia at Charlottesville before joining the Department of Anatomy at the University of Wisconsin’s School of Medicine in 1973. Dr. Lipton’s research on muscular dystrophy, studies employing cloned human stem cells, focused upon the molecular mechanisms controlling cell behavior. An experimental tissue transplantation technique developed by Dr. Lipton and colleague Dr. Ed Schultz and published in the journal Science was subsequently employed as a novel form of human genetic engineering.

In 1982, Dr. Lipton began examining the principles of quantum physics and how they might be integrated into his understanding of the cell’s information processing systems. He produced breakthrough studies on the cell membrane, which revealed that this outer layer of the cell was an organic homologue of a computer chip, the cell’s equivalent of a brain. His research at Stanford University’s School of Medicine, between 1987 and 1992, revealed that the environment, operating though the membrane, controlled the behavior and physiology of the cell, turning genes on and off. His discoveries, which ran counter to the established scientific view that life is controlled by the genes, presaged one of today’s most important fields of study, the science of epigenetics. Two major scientific publications derived from these studies defined the molecular pathways connecting the mind and body. Many subsequent papers by other researchers have since validated his concepts and ideas.

Dr. Lipton’s novel scientific approach transformed his personal life as well. His deepened understanding of cell biology highlighted the mechanisms by which the mind controls bodily functions, and implied the existence of an immortal spirit. He applied this science to his personal biology, and discovered that his physical well-being improved, and the quality and character of his daily life was greatly enhanced.

Dr. Lipton has taken his award-winning medical school lectures to the public and is currently a sought after keynote speaker and workshop presenter. He lectures to conventional and complementary medical professionals and lay audiences about leading-edge science and how it dovetails with mind-body medicine and spiritual principles. He has been heartened by anecdotal reports from hundreds of former audience members who have improved their spiritual, physical and mental well being by applying the principles he discusses in his lectures. He is regarded as one of the leading voices of the new biology. Dr Lipton’s work summarizing his findings, entitled The Biology of Belief. His new book, Spontaneous Evolution, Our Positive Future and a Way to Get There From Here, is available now.

About Get Conscious Now

A spring board for humanitarians who are waking up to their power to consciously create.  An inspirational talk show on Women’s Radio, hosted by two dynamic women, Patricia Diorio and Patty DeDominic, experts in their respective coaching fields of spirituality and business.  The show speaks to a shift as people become conscious of their true nature, as spiritual beings having a human experience.

This conversation is being significantly substantiated by the scientific community through the work of quantum physicists and scientists from all branches of science.  Reflected in movies like The Secret and What the Bleep Do We Know?, what it means to be conscious is now beginning to impact every sector of society.

Get Conscious Now!, is dedicated to exploring the many shifting paradigms that are occurring today within this conversation, offering a wide range of today’s most compelling topics.  In addition to science and spirituality, the show also addresses what it means to be conscious in the areas of business, finance, health, medicine, politics, the arts and more.  The guests interviewed are leading experts in their respective fields of expertise.  Although the subject matter is varied, the common thread for all guests is their belief that there is a shaft that is occurring today in the fundamental belief structure of society, where consciousness rather than the material world is the ground of all being or the place from which all life arises.  This new way of perceiving the world goes way beyond the ‘bottom line’ as we know it.
