Harnessing Personal Power, a talk with Anna Yusim
Dr. Anna Yusim, an award-winning, nationally recognized psychiatrist, speaker and author will talk at 1 p.m., Feb. 24, about Harnessing Personal Power. The event, scheduled at High Mountain Hall, 5 Mountain Street, in Camden, is free and open to the public, and is sponsored by McLean Borden Cottage.
Yusim, a board-certified psychiatrist with a New York City private practice, wrote Fulfilled: How the Science of Spirituality Can Help You Live a Happier, More Meaningful Life (Hachette, June 2017).
Through personal experience and research over the past 15 years, Yusim made a startling discovery that flies in the face of most modern medical teaching, including her own. In Fulfilled, she distills core universal spiritual principles from a number esoteric traditions such as Kabbalah, Shamanism and Buddhism, to name a few. She then incorporates the spiritual implications of new developments in quantum physics, exploring topics like consciousness, synchronicity, immortality, and interconnectedness.
In Dr. Yusim’s quest to find what was missing from her life after completing her studies at Stanford, Yale Medical School, and the NYU Psychiatry Residency Training Program, she traveled, lived and worked in more than 50 countries, while studying Kabbalah, learning Buddhist meditation, and working with South American shamans and Indian gurus. Additionally:
- she has published over 70 academic articles, book chapters, scientific abstracts and book reviews on various topics in psychiatry;
- has been a guest on countless national and international radio programs, TV shows and podcasts;
- is a sought-after speaker at universities, businesses, academic and educational conferences, and corporate, spiritual, and yoga/meditation retreats; and,
- has received numerous awards and distinctions, including the National Institute of Mental Health Outstanding Research Resident Award, the American Psychoanalytic Association Fellowship, and many others
