Dr. Laura Batson
Naturopathic Doctor | Author of Curvature: The Science and Soul of Nonlinearity
ABOUT Dr. Laura Batson, N.D.
My journey to become a naturopathic doctor began after reading the following passage from a complementary and alternative medicine book:

“In ancient and indigenous healing systems, medicine was not about the putting of things into the body but using external resources to help stimulate the internal resources of the body. The body heals itself and maintains it’s own health.”

I was nearing the end of my undergraduate degree in Biology and I knew the linear path I was on to become a medical doctor was about to take a turn. Rather than medical school, I enrolled in a postgraduate degree in Holistic Science where I was immersed in traditional and Indigenous knowledge systems, complexity theory and systems thinking, and the practice of intuition, spirit-dialogue and art-making as guides for scientific inquiry. 

Upon graduating, I was called to put this knowledge into practice as a holistic medical practitioner who honoured the wholeness and sacredness of healing, the power of plants and creativity in healing, and the recognition of one's innate resources to heal themselves.  This led me to the study and practice of naturopathic medicine. 
Curvature: The Science and Soul of Nonlinearity
Recommended Course Book:

Curvature: The Science and soul of nonlinearity

(weekly recommended readings come from this book)

“Integrating art, science, and spiritual wisdom, Laura Batson explores in a unique way what may be the most important development in twenty-first-century thought: the recognition of the importance of nonlinearity. A beautiful and inspiring book!”

 — Fritjof Capra, author of  The Tao of Physics, and The Web of Life

Many of us find ourselves living lives in straight paths (following the straight and narrow), always reaching for the next goal but seldom remembering who we are. We have forgotten how to turn into ourselves. Our souls are naturally curvaceous. They want to turn into themselves. But we have forgotten the language of Curvature. We have forgotten how to become the potential we were meant to become.
