Event description
For the 200th Anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale

About this Event

Caring science and unitary nonlocal consciousness are visionary models for one mind, one health, and one planet. Following in Florence Nightingale’s (1820-1910) footsteps, we are challenged to commit our pledge to planetary citizenship as a means to improve relationships, increase environmental awareness, and develop a world based on respect and social justice.

The current view of consciousness within science is that it is produced by the brain and is confined to it. With physical death, therefore, consciousness is annihilated: there is no such thing as the soul. In contrast, the great wisdom traditions affirm that there is a collective, universal mind, of which all individual minds are a part, and that consciousness survives death. This image of consciousness has been affirmed by recent scientific evidence suggesting that conscious is nonlocal – i.e., that it is infinite in space and time, therefore immortal, eternal, united, and one: in short, the soul. Using actual clinical examples of healing, Dr. Dossey will examine the implications of this emerging view of consciousness for human welfare and for Planet Earth. He will show that we are arriving at a view of consciousness that transcends death and annihilation; that portends a majestic view of what it means to be human; and how to be healed.

The World Health Organization (WHO) Executive Board designated 2020 the “Year of the Nurse and Midwife” in honor of the 200th birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale (1820-1910). Nightingale is the philosophical founder of modern nursing who ranks with the most brilliant sanitary, medical, and health-care reformers in history.

Today modern healthcare often focuses on acute or chronic illness. However, the elements necessary for good health are far more complex than we tend to recognize. Nightingale understood this complexity and wrote extensively on the myriad social and environmental factors that influence wellbeing. Today these factors are termed “health determinants’.

Nightingale’s legacy and the 17 United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) framework can assist us in incorporating these key goals within our daily lives and with our families, communities, and nations. Our individual actions as environmental and citizen activists can make a significant difference in achieving the vital global mission—healthy people living on a healthy planet—to guide us into the future to solve the pressing issues of our time.

She is currently working closely with a motivated inter-disciplinary team of SDG advocates — led by nurses and teachers — based in East Africa. She also serves on a multimedia team developing an independent feature film and a related documentary, ‘docudrama’ TV Series and ’Nightingale Declaration’ Campaign to share the epic Nightingale story — aimed to begin launching, worldwide, during the 2020 Nightingale Bicentenary Year.
