The Kundalini has the power to transform and to heal. Join Dave Cumes in exploring the Kundalini in reference to prana or the life force, the “Field” and:

Topics such as the "Inner Healer," the power of placebo to heal and that of nocebo to harm; medicine not localized in space and time, the "Field," distant diagnosis and healing, being healed even if you are not cured, the miracle of spontaneous remission of disease and why shamanism matters.
Dr. David Cumes was born and raised in South Africa. After coming to the U.S., he received his surgical training at Stanford, and then moved to Santa Barbara to begin his practice as a surgeon and urologist. As his career as a physician continued, he began to sense an inner calling to return to Africa and learn about indigenous understandings of illness and healing. He was initiated into African medicine in 2002 and practices this along side allopathic medicine.
