Master weavers historically characterize the weaving of a tapestry as a calling, a transformation, a healing or sacred work. Tapestries are created by the collective efforts of many and are configured by the weavers' consciousness and spirit. A holistic framework used to weave a body-mind-spirit tapestry for guiding holistic clinical practice and research is described. Various research studies that document the effects of holistic interventions on patients' outcomes are examined. Implications for clinical practice are explored.
