Joseph Pierce Farrell is an award-winning pioneer in Integrative Healthcare. He is known for his landmark research which is documenting the efficacy of mind-body-spirit practices and interventions to achieve physical health benefits in both hard and soft tissue. In recognition for his pioneering work, he was the recipient of the 2007 CIIMA Award for Courage in Integrative Medicine. In 2008, in recognition for his research he was endowed with the Ambassador's Chair in Consciousness Studies, GHI, NY. As a philanthropist he has served as an NGO representative to the United Nations, and as a special advisor to multiple health related working groups. Farrell has provided pro bono care, worldwide, to the disfigured and disabled.
As a practitioner, he is sought after for his reputation to integrate advanced mind-body-spirit practices and interventions into patient care for improved health and wellness. As a researcher, Farrell serves as the director of research of spirituality based practices in clinical care at the GENESIS LAB for Healing Research. As an educator, Farrell lectures at universities domestically and internationally on the benefits of a healthcare model that embraces a mind, body, and spirit approach to deliver improved health outcomes.
 
Training: Farrell began his formal study of healthcare as a medical corpsman while serving as a Midshipmen in the U.S.M.A., attaining the rank of commander. Farrell went on to study mind-body modalities in 1988 with clinically standardized meditation under professor Patricia Carrington of Princeton University.  Farrell served as lead clinician on a landmark outcome study (2002-2003): "Evaluating the efficacy of Consciousness-Based Healthcare to achieve benevolent effect,” under the supervision of Pulitzer-Prize-winning Harvard Medical School professor John E. Mack, M.D. Farrell continued his training with the traditional Taoist energy-cultivating practices of Tai Chi and Nei Kung in the Internal Arts Energy Systems taught by the renowned Master C.K. Chu. He rounded out his study of the interrelationship of mind, body, and spirit by attending seminary in New York, where he studied theology and the ancient healing wisdom of Christianity, and Taoism. In addition to his research at the institute, he serves as a Hospital Chaplain visiting patients domestically and internationally.  His work has been published in numerous periodicals and he is the international best-selling author of "Manifesting Michelangelo" published by Simon & Schuster. 
 
Advance Praise for Director Farrell's Pioneering Work
 
“Director Farrell's work is at the frontiers of integrative medicine. If practitioners in the healing arts could learn to harness and direct their powers to accomplish what has heretofore seemed impossible…it will have profound effects on our approach to many aspects of medicine.” -Len Horovitz, M.D., Board certified in Internal and Pulmonary  
 
"When this work comes out it is going to have huge ramifications for science and medicine." -John E. Mack, M.D.,   Professor, Harvard Medical School,  Pulitzer Prize Winning Author
 
​“I continued to review  Farrell's  work and have been present  where participants in observational studies have had work done. These individuals had previously been cared for by physicians at some of the highest level institutions in the New York City area and were told there was nothing further that could be done for them. I have seen a dramatic improvement in both the physical and psychological state of participants." - Frank Salvatore, M.D., Board- Certified Urologist, Chair Medical Advisory Board ,GHI ,2006-2009

Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D., President, The International Society for the Study of Subtle Energies and Energy
