Dr. Snowiss treats each of these fields as part of a single whole that is conducive to what she calls cross-cultural healing, believing that a whole world needs whole people. Whether championing women’s leadership or organizing the first academically credited Qi Gong classes to undergraduates in the United States,she is a living witness to the possibility of harmony and what Whitehead calls world loyalty.
