Dr. Bernie Siegel (1932), who prefers to be called Bernie, has retired from a long practice as an assistant clinical professor of surgery at Yale of general and pediatric surgery in 1989 to speak to patients and their caregivers.
For many, Bernie needs no introduction. He has touched many lives all over our planet. In 1978 he began talking about patient empowerment and the choice to live fully and die in peace. Bernie embraces a philosophy of living and dying that stands at the forefront of the medical ethics and spiritual issues our society grapples with today. He continues to assist in the breaking of new ground in the field of healing and personally struggling to live the message of kindness and love. His prediction is that in the next decade the role of consciousness, spirituality, non-local healing, body memory and heart energy will all be explored as scientific subjects.
Bernie speaks and runs workshops and medical education across the country and is devoted to humanizing medical care. His books Love, Medicine, and Miracles; Peace, Love, and Healing; and How to Live between Office Visits are classics in the field of healing.
Bernie has been named one of the top 20 Spiritually Influential Living People on the Planet by the Watkins Review which is published by Watkins Books, an esoteric bookshop in the heart of London, England.
Bernie is introduced by Dr. Allen Schoen. Treating animals just as any healer would treat human beings, Allen Schoen has become one of America’s most celebrated veterinarians. In addition to his veterinary work, he is known for his book Kindred Spirits: How the Remarkable Bond Between Humans and Animals Can Change the Way we Live and C.A.L.M. – Conscious Animal Lovers Movement.

Here is what one of our members said after watching the webinar “I hope I can make some permanent changes based on the last 20 minutes as I relisten and on my 4th time now already. There are some wonderful learning and life changing opportunities in the Monday webinars!”
Here are a few takeaways from the webinar:
There are no coincidences – life is arranged perfectly for you, just follow the signs.
You are creating the future by what you are doing, listening to – so choose wise.
When you let your mind guide itself, things flow.
People live longer if they have pets. Love changes body chemistry, tumors melt, love heals. Love your pet, that simple.
Bodies die but consciousness doesn’t
Yes, you can communicate with your pets – quiet your mind and send a message, they hear it
Don’t change your life for the animal, let it naturally flow. Don’t make it work taking care of the animal, make it love
Lessons from Bernie’s parents: do what makes you happy; if you are experiencing a challenge – god is redirecting you, something good will come out of this; the point of life is to help other people
Love your body, love yourself: spend time at night sending love to all your body parts, have pictures of yourself around the house and say “I love you” every time you pass them
Kill with kindness, torment with tenderness
Now can we add just a little bit of Bernie’s enthusiasm for love and kindness into our lives in 2023? We are in!
