Recently a spoon bending workshop for doctors at the U of A was cancelled. According to this CBC article the workshop included an opportunity to bend spoons with the mind. I think the idea was to present alternative healing methods. I certainly don’t discount the upsides of Western Medicine. Having said that, I can’t help but think of all those doctors in stuffy meeting rooms with no windows discussing blood and guts all day. Might a spoon-bending workshop spark some creative discussion that could inform a stringent practice? Alternative healing for doctors isn’t quite an interdisciplinary study like, say, an art class would be, but wouldn’t it just be a mind-bending good time?
