Episode 8: Dr. James Doty
Brain, Heart, Magic: A Conversation with Dr. James Doty
Jim Doty was a self-described juvenile delinquent raised in a violent and dysfunctional home when, at the age of twelve, he wandered into a magic shop and met someone who would change his life. Promising to show him REAL magic, a woman named Ruth would teach him what he later realized were methods of Eastern mysticism and higher consciousness awareness. Applying the techniques she taught him, he would transcend his disadvantaged childhood, go to college against all odds and end up a highly successful neurosurgeon teaching at Stanford University medical school. As a doctor he would learn that the truths Ruth revealed to him as a child are indeed the deepest truths of the human brain and heart.
