Join TNS Host Michael Lerner for a two-part spiritual biography conversation with Jerry Jampolsky, MD, and Diane Cirincione-Jampolsky, PhD. Jerry is the founder of Attitudinal Healing and the first Center for Attitudinal Healing in 1975 and Diane founded and currently directs Attitudinal Healing International.
Health is defined as inner peace and healing as the letting go of fear. Attitudinal Healing is a cross-cultural method of healing that helps remove self-imposed blocks such as judgment, blame, shame and self-condemnation that are in the way of experiencing lasting love, peace, and happiness. The approach and philosophy are based on universal principles and people of all ages, beliefs, walks of life and cultures benefit from the practice of Attitudinal Healing.
