Mysticism & Mental Health

With Patricia A. Muehsam, M.D.

Mystical, transpersonal, and metaphysical experiences are often described as beautiful, magical, life-changing events that enhance our lives in positive ways. But sometimes a spiritual experience can turn into a spiritual emergency or worse, a psychotic break. As a young adult, our guest, Patricia Muehsam, M.D., found herself locked in a psychiatric ward after talking about her own spiritual experiences. Now, a pioneer in the synthesis of science, holistic health, and contemporary spirituality, Dr. Muehsam has a groundbreaking book, Beyond Medicine: A Physician’s Revolutionary Prescription for Achieving Absolute Health and Finding Inner Peace.


About Dr. Patricia A. Muehsam

Patricia A. Muehsam, MD, a pioneer in the synthesis of science, holistic health, and contemporary spirituality, has distinguished herself as a practitioner, educator, research scientist, and author. Dr. Muehsam has been an influential force in shaping the landscape of healthcare options available today. As a thought leader, Muehsam forged new ground that contributed to the establishment of the Office of Alternative Medicine at the National Institutes of Health, now the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health.

As an educator, she founded the Association of American Medical Colleges’ first initiative in alternative and complementary medicine, leading medical schools throughout the United States to add courses in the field. Her original bioelectromagnetics laboratory research at The Mount Sinai School of Medicine investigated distant healer phenomena, Qigong, and homeopathy. Since then, she has studied trance medium, spiritual, and psychic healing phenomena, as well as the links between consciousness and health. Dr. Muehsam’s journey has been marked by both extraordinary personal challenges and extraordinary openings, all of which have informed that journey and been an inspiration for her professional activities. She has been a patient, many times over. She has experienced catastrophic illness in her family and in her own life. And she’s born witness to cures that defied conventional medical thinking. Inspired by her personal experiences, she pursued training in acupuncture, homeopathy, Ayurveda, mindbody medicine, yoga, energy medicine, and functional medicine, and in 2008, she founded Transformational Medicine TM , a whole person approach to healing, wellness, and living. Her services include health consultations, mind-body healing sessions, courses, retreats, and communities of support.

Muehsam’s groundbreaking book, Beyond Medicine: A Physician’s Revolutionary Prescription for Achieving Absolute Health and Finding Inner Peace, has been hailed by Larry Dossey, MD as the “only health and healing book you may ever need.” A musician since early childhood, Dr. Muehsam plays piano, flute, and sings. Nowadays, she mostly sings — jazz, gospel, and classical choral music. She resides in New York City with Benjamin, her adopted Golden Retriever and very wise spiritual advisor.

Our Sacred Stories with Ariel Patricia

We’ve all had them . . . those mystical glimpses into the consciousness beyond our five senses. In a sacred moment, a flash of truth or taste of grace moves through us. Our world expands and something is revealed, illuminated, felt. We go back to our daily lives, yet something essential has changed. Transcendent experiences like these are becoming so increasingly common that it makes sense to finally claim and honor the next level of consciousness we’re expanding into. Sharing grounded wisdom and our intimate encounters with this greater reality, the Common Sentience book series open hearts, affirms our innate essence, and transforms our world. Rev. Ariel Patricia joins us to talk about our sacred stories and why it’s important that we share them now.

She felt the calling to found Sacred Stories after a series of events changed the course of her life (we’re going to ask her about that). Since then, she has been on a heart-based mission to help others tell and share their own stories of transformation to a global audience. Ariel Patricia is ordained as an interfaith minister, author of two books, and co-author of three.
