Dave's story

More information on divining bones

David Cumes, M.D. was born in South Africa and received his medical training and surgical specialization in Johannesburg. Qualifying in urology, he has taught at Stanford Medical Center, has published extensively in professional journals and currently has a private practice in Santa Barbara, California. He is a Western trained surgeon steeped in the allopathic paradigm of medicine and is an African trained shaman.

Dr. Cumes is committed to bridging Western medicine and ancient African healing wisdom. Western medicine has brought us many boons but there are glaring deficiencies as well. We focus too much on the intellectual, cognitive and scientific and too little on the intuitive, receptive, artistic, compassionate and mystical. 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, very old paradigm of healing not confined to the space/time continuum.
