In Aware Awake Alive - A Contemporary Guide to the Ancient Science of Integral Health and Human Flourishing, Dr. Elliott Dacher, an old friend, draws on a lifetime of dedication to human healing techniques. For over twenty years he practiced internal medicine and, increasingly through the years, began to incorporate the principles and practices of consciousness and integral health. Throughout his medical career, Dr. Dacher built a growing reputation for his commitment to bringing together biological science and an understanding of mind and spirit. The titles of his previous books are sufficient to convey this commitment: Integral Health: The Path to Human Flourishing (Basic Books, 2006), Whole Healing (Dutton/Plume, 1996) and Intentional Healing (Marlowe, 1996).
