Beyond Bones
a conscious reflection on paradigms of health and disease
by Kate Shelest

Human beings are more than just the physical body. A grassroots paradigm shift to holistic and integrative healing methods is happening. These methods are not new; many are grounded in ages-old wisdom, and some integrate modern and traditional healing techniques. This book is a guide that provides a brief overview of a selection of these traditional and integrative paradigms of health and disease, with references for further exploration. It is intended to stimulate curiosity and interest in the possibility that body-mind-spirit based practices are rich resources waiting to be tapped.

"Beyond Bones gives us a glimpse into how brilliant the human body is and how different cultures and approaches have respected the multidimensional body, mind, spirit, and the mysteries of the biofield and consciousness. Kate takes us beyond Era I chemical or allopathic medicine to Era III where ‘all of who we are’ guides the path to healing. The accompanying beautiful expressive images invite us to expand our perspectives on who we really are." —Ruth Lamb RN, MScN, PhD Author: Human Becoming: A Guide to Soul-Centered Living "Kate’s integrative approach to health is a game changer! By returning to our ancestral roots and integrating Eastern with Western modalities to health, we can live and feel better! I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to take charge of their health and live well!" —Leigh Hodgins, Bachelor of General Studies SFU Owner of Willow Spirit Path Holistic Services: Facilitated Equine Experiential Learning™ Chopra Well-Being Coaching Program (c) “Kate captures the essence of the mind-body-spirit connection in this succinct blending of ancient wisdom and art. Beyond Bones comes to us at a poignant time in history when we are all being challenged to re-examine old beliefs and lifestyle patterns. Kate encourages the reader to move beyond the obvious in order to understand and nurture self on a spiritual level.”  —S. Hole RN MN, President of The Canadian Institute of Integrative Nursing Development & Education Ltd.

With over 30 years experience as a registered nurse, Kate decided to explore a more holistic approach to client care. This path led to her certification in Advanced Integrative Energy Healing™ and introduced her to Integral health studies at the California Institute for Human Science. Her West Coast based private practice supports clients to integrate holistic modalities into their health care regimes. With a strong interest in biofield science, consciousness theory, and subtle energy research, her focus is now on introducing nurses and other health professionals to holistic self-care practices. “It’s all about experiencing the body-mind-spirit connection and realizing that we're more than just our physical body … you never know what the healing is going to be”.
