dc.description.abstract This study addresses the importance of reintroducing the transcendent into the western concept of health and proposes that energy medicine has relevance for biomedical health services. Energy medicine supports wellness by attending to body, mind and spirit, as components of a full human life. It is validated by quantum science theories of the universal energetic field and supports the concept that human beings are comprised of more than their material bodies. Furthermore, the theory and practice of energy medicine finds its completion in the spiritual writings of Christian mystics, revealing knowledge of progress towards transcendence through the subliminal bliss body. Drawing from the literature and clinical studies of those dually-qualified scientist-philosophers, ecologists, theologians, and alternative health practitioners, this study demonstrates that energy medicine and Christian mysticism offer a similar transcendental context, whereby this energetic and conscious universe is available to those who wish to experience the spiritual or the divine. en_CA
