Bridging Western medicine and ancient African healing practices
Western medicine has brought us many boons but there are glaring deficiencies as well. Though masters of technology we are often impoverished in the psycho-spiritual healing realms. Going back to our root or core self with the help of ancient African wisdom gives us not only an understanding of our origins but a clear perspective of a new and at the same time a very old paradigm of healing unconfined to the space-time continuum.
The primary goal of TSHISIMANE HEALING CENTER was to validate and research
ancient indigenous healing techniques and bridge these ancient methods
with current ideas of integrative medicine. These primal methods employ
divination and dream telling for diagnosis of physical and psycho-spiritual
maladies and use plant medicines for their treatment.
The message in Dr David Cumes' dream could not have been clearer or more
direct. An accomplished surgeon with a busy practice in Santa Barbara,
Dave is also trained and initiated as a South African sangoma (traditional
healer). His vision: Bring the healing traditions of Africa and introduce
them to people who have only known Western medicine.
