Season 2, Episode 17 – 55 min

Shamini Jain

Dec 14, 2022

We are very pleased to be joined today by the scientist, psychologist, and transformational teacher, Shamini Jain, PhD. Dr. Jain is the founder and CEO of the nonprofit Consciousness and Healing Initiative (CHI), a collaborative accelerator of scientists, healers, artists, and educators to help lead humanity to heal themselves.

Coherence in society calls for working together and creating the system where “I” becomes “WE”—where the parts maintain their unique identity while working together to maintain the integral coherence of the whole that they form. This is the principle we obtain from the quantum paradigm. Public policy is the field for the application of this principle. It defines the coexistence of unique but not separate individuals in coherent wholes, whether these wholes are states and nations, or businesses or social and cultural groups.

From page 49 of the book Dawn of an Era of Well-Being by Ervin Laszlo and Frederick Tsao

About This Episode

ShaminiEPISODE N. 17 | We are very pleased to be joined today by the scientist, psychologist, and transformational teacher, Shamini Jain, PhD. Dr. Jain is the founder and CEO of the nonprofit Consciousness and Healing Initiative (CHI), a collaborative accelerator of scientists, healers, artists, and educators to help lead humanity to heal themselves. She also serves as adjunct faculty at UC San Diego and is author of Healing Ourselves: Biofield Science and the Future of Health (Sounds True, 2021).

We are in the midst of a shifting paradigm in which we can observe concepts that were once thought to have no place in the realm of empirical science, slowly being processed into mainstream thinking. This includes matters that were once deemed to be within the realm of spirituality. Still, however, negative preconceptions in the scientific community continue to persist, and ancient healing arts still tend to be written off as “pseudo-science” without further consideration. Dr. Jain occupies the vanguard of this transition, and she will enlighten us specifically on the roles consciousness and Eastern spirituality can play in healing both our bodies and our minds.

This intriguing conversation covers a multitude of topics including how music and aural therapy have been used to treat trauma and anxiety disorders, as well as the related field of biofield tuning—a therapy pioneered and developed by Eileen Day McKusick. Dr. Jain also discusses how her spiritual background as an adherent of the ancient Indian tradition of Jainism helps to shape her outlook.

Throughout this episode, Ervin and Fred will help to maintain a focus on the overarching question concerning how we are to think about acts of healing for the “individual” in the context of a universal consciousness, in which the singular and the whole are one in the same—and how this helps us to awaken in an era of Well-Being.

THE BOOK
DAWN of AN ERA of WELL-BEING
Humankind is facing monumental challenges—the sustainability of our natural resources, climate change, wealth inequalities, breakdowns in social structures, the impact of artificial intelligence, and of course the threat of pandemics. What we need to understand is that with each of these challenges is an opportunity to create a better future for our Earth. But first we need to open our eyes and understand how the old “normal”—the conventions and assumptions about how our systems work—are no longer sustainable. Change is going to occur, and a “new normal” is not simply necessary; it is imminent.

The authors of Dawn of An Era of Well-Being offer a unique worldview called the “quantum paradigm” that is emerging in society. Their concepts and principles are drawn from theories of Western science and Eastern wisdom traditions of human spirituality. These compass points for navigating the uncharted waters we are entering will be of interest to all who want to find a path to a better world. In this critical work authors Ervin Laszlo and Frederick Tsao are joined by several contributors including Deepak Chopra, Jean Houston, Neale Donald Walsch, and other well-known thought leaders.

The book Dawn of an Era of Well-Being: New Paths to a Better World by Ervin Laszlo and Frederick Tsao is available wherever books or e-books are sold including Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
