Memorable Quotes

“For me, I was always one that appreciated what I refer to as independent investigation of truth. Whether it’s in science or spirituality, I seek out the information, I value other people’s opinion, and then at some point, I like to formulate my own thoughts about these things.” [00:08:31] – Dr. Sheila Dean

“When I was actually healing, am I allowed to say that? Healing patients and curing them. It was a really profound experience for me, and it was almost like a spiritual experience. And so, I just kept going and going, but I knew I needed more training.” [00:11:14] – Dr. Sheila Dean
