SBCC School of Extended Learning Invites Students to Learn Healing, From the Inside Out

Dr. David Cumes

Discover how non-physical influences can affect your inner healing process this Saturday at SBCC School of Extended Learning. Students enrolled in the one-day class Access Your Inner Healer will learn about cures that exist beyond the realm of modern medicine.

Access Your Inner Healer

Dr. David Cumes, M.D. will guide students through the many variables in the healing/curing paradigm in his course, including healer-patient relationships, faith, hope, forgiveness, happiness and gratitude. Discover how these non-physical influences facilitate your inner healer, create balance and equanimity, and also assist in the remission and cure of deadly diseases.

A South Africa native, Dr. Cumes received his medical training in Johannesburg and taught at Stanford Medical Center after emigrating to California in 1975. He currently runs a private practice in Santa Barbara. In 2002, he fulfilled one of his lifelong dreams of being initiated as a sangoma, or medicine man, in South Africa.

He is also the author of several books and is an active advocate of bridging the gap between Western medicine and indigenous healing techniques.

“The ability to move the spirit that heals probably has existed as long as humans have walked the planet, and we need to familiarize ourselves with its mechanism,” he writes in his book, The Spirit of Healing: Venture Into the Wilderness to Rediscover the Healing Force. “As doctors, we need to recognize our ability to facilitate or aggravate the patient’s Inner Healer not only by our deeds, words and body language, but also by our wishes and thoughts. The positive desires and prayers of the physician are just as important as the affirmations and visualizations of the patient in the healing process.”
