Dr. Ernest Rossi’s latest book for creating consciousness documents how behavioral science professionals can better facilitate health and mind-body healing by creating a new consciousness through wonder, wisdom, truth, and beauty.

PHOENIX, Ariz. – March 15, 2012 — Over the last half-century, the work of Ernest Lawrence Rossi Ph.D. has had a tremendous impact on the field of behavioral science. In his 2007 book, The Breakout Heuristic, a compilation of four decades of his most important articles and papers, Rossi presented his four-stage model of change. It encompasses in-depth brain research, the study of the function of dreams as a precursor to psychic growth, the epiphanies of therapeutic hypnosis, and the use of art, beauty, and truth in human relationships to create a new consciousness. Throughout Rossi’s work it is evident that humans are constantly changing with their environment and through the process of self-reflection. As a student, colleague, and friend of the late Dr. Milton H. Erickson, who was his mentor for a decade and with whom he co-authored several books, Rossi continues to explore body-mind research and hypnosis and gain news insights on how psychotherapists can make an impact.

In his latest book, Creating Consciousness: How Therapists Can Facilitate Wonder, Wisdom, Truth & Beauty, Rossi expands on his ideology in four parts with myriad illustrations, graphs, and charts. Part One presents core research detailing how novelty, enrichment, and the “wonder” of meta-cognition turns on activity-dependent gene expression and brain plasticity, which can create a better brain in everyday life, as well as the arts, culture, humanities, and sciences. Part Two takes the reader beyond philosophical disputes about the “Hard Question” of the nature of consciousness to present actual case histories and scripts detailing how we create new consciousness with a four-stage creative process in our daily work. Part Three extends and illustrates Darwin’s profound words about how micro-evolution operates in daily life. A minute-by-minute transcript documents how “Buddha Consciousness” can facilitate Darwin’s Daily and hourly Dharma with the Novelty-Numinosum-Neurogenesis Effect in a top-down manner. Part Four presents a new protocol for creating consciousness and pilot research that documents how we may be able to provide mind-body healing by optimizing stem cell activity while decreasing chronic inflammation and cellular oxidative stress.

Rossi begins with Culturomics—“a new scientific approach to understanding meaning, consciousness, and culture by searching for deep insights via large databases of text and media.” He also examines the psychosocial genomics of the creative ideo-plastic healing experience; the function of sleep and dreams; introduces four principles for his New Neuroscience School of Therapeutic Hypnosis, Psychotherapy, and Rehabilitation; presents a neuroscience approach to integrative medical insights (similar to The Human Genome Project); considers Darwin’s reasoning that evolution is a daily and hourly process; reveals how art, beauty, and truth can heighten neural activation which impacts the brain and has important implications in philosophy, the humanities, and sciences; and discusses the new neuroscience of the internal mirror neuron system.

This informative must-read book is for all those to aspire to light and brighten the lamps of human consciousness.
