What is Satori?

“Satori” is a Japanese Buddhist term for “sudden enlightenment”.  In the Zen Buddhist tradition, Satori is the experience of a sudden, profound, personal realization… a breakthrough experience.  In the Full Spectrum Medicine approach, Dr. Dan utilizes what he describes as the Satori Method with his clients to facilitate multilevel healing and create lasting results.  The Satori Method is a unique approach to healing that offers immediate relief and long-term positive change–physically, mentally and emotionally.


How can a Satori experience be stimulated?

The avenues for having a Satori experience can come through dedication to traditional self-mastery practices (for example yoga, martial arts, meditation, fasting and prayer), as well as more contemporary “flow states” where one is intensely focused (for example, when an athlete is immersed in adventure sports, or a musician is performing in concert or an artist is painting a canvas).

Other ways of having a Satori experience are more spontaneous (like near-death experiences) or more transcendental (like working with sacred plant medicines in altered states of consciousness).

How does the Full Spectrum Medicine process work?

Full Spectrum Medicine utilizes a 5-phase approach to healing that helps people with chronic psychiatric conditions move from frustrating symptom management to personal empowerment and fulfillment through a process of repairing core imbalances:

  1. Crisis
  2. Healing Arts
  3. Optimal Performance
  4. Catalyzing Consciousness (where Satori occurs)
  5. Maintenance

This unique approach nourishes the conditions for a Satori experience to occur, thus establishing the foundation for multilevel healing and lasting results. Learn more about the Full Spectrum Medicine process in the video below.
