NDE: PhD Becomes Healer After Near-Death Experience

NDE: PhD Becomes Healer After Near-Death Experience

Mar 29



Joyce Hawkes, PhD is a biophysicist and cell-biologist by training. She completed her doctorate in Biophysics at The Pennsylvania State University, and was a postdoctoral Fellow with the National Institutes of Health before settling in Seattle to work in research for the National Marine Fisheries Research Center, a part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

While there, she was honored with a National Achievement Award for her work. Over the course of 15 years, Joyce has earned an international reputation for her scientific contributions in the field of ultra high-speed laser effects on cells, and the effects of environmental pollutants on cells. She has published 36 peer-reviewed scientific papers and is a Fellow in the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Following a near-death experience, Joyce changed careers in 1984 and embarked on extensive exploration of indigenous spiritual and healing traditions, which she incorporated in her first book: Cell-Level Healing: The Bridge from Soul to Cell. Dr. Hawkes is the founder of Healing Arts Associates and maintains a private practice at her office in Seattle. She keeps a busy schedule of teaching and conference presentations in the Seattle area, across the the US and abroad.

Joyce’s fascinating science, stories and ease with audiences has made her a popular radio and television guest. The subject of a national TV special with Diane Sawyer on national television (seen on “Turning Point” and on “Good Morning America”), Joyce also was filmed in Japan in 2005 for a documentary. Her brain wave patterns were tested with EEG recordings during meditation and while doing healing work. The results were quite unusual, according to Dr. Akio Mori, of Nihon University, Tokyo, Japan. “I’ve never seen anyone with as highly focused brain patterns as Dr. Hawkes,” he said.

For more information about Joyce, you can visit her website, listen to an interview with her on Exceptional Wisdom Radio, and/or order a copy of her book, Cell-Level Healing: The Bridge from Soul to Cell.

    I loved this persons story. I like very much all the ones you post. It would be wonderful if the whole world could have a sudden NDE. Perhaps then we would look upon each other in love and the truth of how sacred we truly are. Each and everyone of us.
