Leonard Perlmutter, founder and director of The American Meditation Institute will announce the formulation of the Yoga Science “Thought Energy” equation D=E+W+C at AMI’s 31credit hour mind/body medicine CME conference for physicians and other health care providers, October 22-26, 2019 at the Cranwell Resort and Spa in Lenox, Massachusetts. The formula, which Perlmutter indicates can empower human beings to transform the debilitating power of unhealthy desires into a beneficial form of healing energy, will power and creativity, will be presented at the annual “The Heart and Science of Yoga” physicians’ conference designed to help identify, prevent and relieve physician stress and burnout.
Leonard Perlmutter is a noted educator, philosopher, and author of both the award-winning book and conference curriculum, “The Heart and Science of Yoga” and the mind/body medicine journal “Transformation.” Leonard has previously presented courses at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Kaiser Permanente, the Commonwealth Club of California, the U. S. Military Academy at West Point, and The New York Times Yoga Forum with Dean Ornish MD.
Recognizing that desire is the fuel for human action, Perlmutter conceived a scientific formula that might well be called the spiritual equivalent of Albert Einstein’s E = MC2. The formula Perlmutter formulated was D = E + W + C. “Every desire,” he explains, “is composed of three basic components: healing energy, will power and creativity (or consciousness). When an individual consciously sacrifices any ego or sense gratification that conflicts with the conscience of the mind, that contractive, harmful, devitalizing energy is automatically transformed into internal reserves of healing energy, will power and creativity that can be accessed at any time.”
The entire “Heart and Science of Yoga” CME conference curriculum is dedicated to providing quality, comprehensive and evidence-based education to physicians and other health care providers on Yoga Science as mind/body medicine. In addition Leonard Perlmutter’s presentation of the core curriculum of Yoga Science and AMI Meditation, other speaker topics will include diaphragmatic breathing, mantra science, yoga psychology, epigenetics, research on yoga’s mind/body connection, resiliency, mind function optimization, food as medicine, Ayurveda, easy-gentle yoga, lymph system detoxification, the chakra system as a diagnostic tool, how to reimagine the modern medical culture, and practical ways to integrate Yoga Science into a medical provider’s personal and professional life.
