A Conversation with Henry Grayson

Interviewed by Mark Matousek
October, 2013

It was great to talk to my old friend Henry Grayson recently about his latest book, Use Your Body To Heal Your Mind, and his cutting edge work in a mind/body/spirit psychology. Henry received his Ph.D. in psychology from Boston University and a post-doctoral certificate in psychoanalysis from the Postgraduate Center for Mental Health. He has studied neuropsychology, the major psychotherapies, the new power therapies, quantum physics and Eastern and Western spiritual philosophies.

This rich background has led him to his work in spiritually based, mind body energy psychology and his creation of Synergetic Therapy. Henry Grayson is the Founder and Chairman Emeritus of the Board of Trustees of the National Institute for the Psychotherapies, a leading postgraduate training Institute in New York; the Founder and Director of the Institute for Spirituality, Science and Psychotherapy; and continues to appear in numerous documentaries and PBS specials.

Henry Grayson’s other books include Mindful Loving: 10 Practices for Creating Deeper Connections and the best selling CD Audio Series for Sounds True, The New Physics of Love: The Power of Mind & Spirit in Relationships. Henry has been lecturing, teaching and providing professional training for over 30 years and is someone I respect tremendously. He was eager to talk to me about his recent breakthroughs in self-healing, how mindfulness affects our health, and how people in relationships communicate in ways they’re not aware of.
