Dr. Sharon Martin is a doctor of medicine and a shamanic healer who holds doctoral degrees in physiology and internal medicine. She discussed how she combines the fields of conventional Western medicine and spiritual teachings in the first half of her speech. Having trained in conventional medicine, she discovered that it wasn't adequate for her work and started incorporating shamanic practices. She continued by saying that the road taken by science and technology can prevent us from using our ESP, emotional intelligence, and connection to nature. Martin explained that shamans are aware of the existence of an energy body, which can be accessed in order to modify our thoughts and establish intentions that can transform our physiology. One can direct individuals to engage in conversation through a meditative visualization.
