Quantum Healing and Sacred Psychiatry

Dr. Judy Reis Tsafrir on expanding beyond the limits of mechanistic medicine

Judy Suzanne Reis Tsafrir, MD, is a holistic healer, activist, artist, and gardener with a private practice of holistic psychiatry, ketamine-assisted psychotherapy and psychoanalysis located in Newton, Massachusetts. She is a board-certified adult and child psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, is on the faculty of Harvard Medical School and the Boston Psychoanalytic Institute and teaches and supervises at the Cambridge Health Alliance. She has particular interest in combining spiritual and developmental approaches to healing, helping patients wean from psychiatric medications, and treating complex chronic medical conditions that present psychiatrically, including mold toxicity, mast cell activation, and Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. She is a practitioner of a variety of energy healing and esoteric modalities including astrology, Tarot, Shamanism, Body Intuitive, and Reiki. Spiritually, she is drawn to Animism, Kabbalah, Buddhism, Taoism, Wicca, and Quakerism. Her practice is dedicated to healing through the integration of heart, mind, body, soul, the biosphere, and the cosmos.

I’ve known Judy for many years through the astro-world, and I was thrilled to get to talk with her about her brilliant new book, Sacred Psychiatry: Bridging the Personal and Transpersonal to Transform Health and Consciousness.

We discussed:

  • Judy's relationship to the Chiron myth and archetype, and how she "went off the reservation" at her Chiron return;

  • The limitations of a secular, mechanistic, personality-based psychiatric paradigm;

  • The current astrological shift to a focus on the air element, and how that needs to be reflected in healing;

  • How Judy incorporates shamanism, astrology, and psychedelic therapy into her work with patients;

  • Simple practices to help you increase your sense of connectedness and awareness of oneness;

  • Judy's experience with the White Lions and their message to humanity at this crucial time;

  • And much more!
