Advisors

 
MESICS has assembled a group of advisors that include leading scientists and clinicians with cutting edge knowledge about health, well-being and personal growth.We’ve had the good fortune of having some very special people as MESICS Advisors. Here’s a sample:His Holiness Lungtok Tenpai Nyima is the leader of the indigenous Tibetan spiritual and cultural tradition known as Yungdrung Bon. He is a physician with a remarkable knowledge of mindbody functioning. He understands, on a fine tuned energetic level, how the mind creates stress, as well as the conditions that make the body weak, ill and prone to a disappointing life and an early death.As one of the preeminent authorities in the world on authentic contemplative, meditation and healing practices, he also understands how the mind can be trained to create calm, peace as well as the conditions that make the body strong, healthy and prone to a deeply satisfying and long life. He has a keen experiential understanding of how to realize some of the deepest possibilities for human growth and well-being.
 
Dr. Paul Rosch is the world’s preeminent authority on stress. He’s President of The American Institute of Stress and Clinical Professor of Medicine and Psychiatry. Not only is he a highly accomplished physician, but he is also a fierce watchdog of the public interest. Dr. Rosch’s writings often call attention to how drug companies mislead the public in their unrelenting search for profits.Dr. Rosch was the 1998-99 President of The Pavlovian Society, an organization of distinguished international scientists devoted to integrating basic and clinical research and has been the recipient of many honors, including an award from Dr. Michael E. DeBakey, President of the American Society for Contemporary Medicine and Surgery for “contributions to our understanding of stress, health, and disease”. He was unanimously elected in 1999 as a Full Member of the prestigious Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, one of only six foreigners who have received this honor in the past twenty years.He has written extensively over the past forty-five years on the role of stress in health and illness, with particular reference to cardiovascular disease and cancer, and problems associated with job stress.Dr. Ernest Rossi is a clinical psychologist, Jungian Analyst and neuroscientist whose pioneering research, clinical work and writing are breathtaking. He sits alone at the very top of the mountain of mindbody research and knowledge that will in time change the way we think about stress, health, well-being and quality of life.We think his ground-breaking work is so important that we have a copy of one of his books in three different rooms!Dr. Rossi has won three Lifetime Achievement Awards for Outstanding Contributions to the Field of Psychotherapy. He was a close clinical and research collaborator of Milton Erikson, the innovative father of clinical hypnosis. Their work together changed the landscape of both hypnosis and psychotherapy.Dr Rossi and his wife Dr. Kathryn Rossi direct the Milton Erikson Institute of the California Central Coast where they live in creative retreat.
