Our next event will be on FRIDAY June 14, 2013:
An Indigenous Approach to Dreams. Presented by David Cumes, MD.
LOCATION: We host this event at the Downtown City Library (210 East 400 South, SLC) @ 7PM. Social hour before and after.
Indigenous people believe that dreams are scripted by our ancestors to instruct us, and are every bit as real as the waking state. In South Africa, sangomas (shamans) use dream interpretation to make diagnoses for a patientís waking life based on this ancestral instruction. Because dreams are most often expressed in the subtle language of metaphor, and are also vulnerable to pollution by trickster spirits, the sangomasí ability to interpret dreams makes it a mastered skill. Learning how the ancestors reach us and how to distinguish true dreams from those scripted by dark spirits, opens us up to a source of wonder and sometimes even life-saving information.
WORKSHOP on Saturday June 15, 2013 9AM-5PM:
An Inspiring Two-Part Workshop with David Cumes, MD
PART 1: South African Healing Wisdom
To most Westerners indigenous African healing techniques are at best puzzling and at worst a smack of sorcery. The West is replete with technological wonders of communication. Yet ancient African wisdom has a lot to teach us about communication with the spiritual realm. There exists a veil that must be penetrated if we wish to communicate with this source, and there is a primal knowledge in Africa that most Westerners do not yet have in order to pierce it.
PART 2: Dying Well
Death is just a ticket to a new destination. Dying well is about understanding that reincarnation makes our life path more meaningful. The lecture will conclude with concepts of living consciously; karma and accountability; the dysfunctions of death, and how to navigate the various realms on the other side of the veil.
David Cumes, MD, received his surgical training in Johannesburg and has taught at Stanford Medical Center. After extensive travel which included time with the Bushmen and shamans in Peru and South Africa, Dave was initiated as a sangoma in South Africa. He is a bridge between Western medicine and indigenous healing wisdom maintaining his surgical practice while also practicing as a sangoma out of his home. Dave has authored five books including The Spirit of Healing and Africa in My Bones.
