The Need to Transform the Existing System of Healthcare

Kalpana (Rose) Kumar, M.D.

There is a movement underfoot in our country that is provocative and exposing. Our shadow is up and it is unraveling itself in all of our institutions. When I left the medical system at age 36, I did so because the corporate intent that I was expected to enable - sick care, felt 'unethical' to me. Sick care was not what I was trained to serve. It was not what my heart and soul went into medicine for. But it was required of me by the medical system to generate profit. I was required to keep people sick in order to keep my job.


Deep inside, I knew I was a problem solver. This is what I loved about Internal Medicine. I wanted to uncover the symptoms and ease suffering by working with people to figure out the causes of their illness and how to tap into it to find solutions with them. If our premise is that life is full of precision, then we should be able to figure out the purpose and meaning behind our symptoms and suffering. Our suffering can also help us become real. It has an alchemical effect on our ego that strips it from being 'all knowing' to becoming a student of life.

Where Are We When There's 'Nothing at the Center?' 

A special day long workshop - Saturday, March 29,  9:30AM-3PM, Presented by Boris Matthews, PhD, Jungian Psychotherapist

Feeling "centered" is one of life's most precious experiences.  In fact, "It's the only way to live!" But, we do not always feel centered.

The workshop will be divided into 2 sections:

-The morning will be informational:

  • What is the "center"? 
  • What do people say about this experience? 
  • What facilitates a person's experience of being in the center?
  • What hinders or prevents that centered experience?
  • What happens when a great many people in a society have no sense of center?

-The afternoon session will include two guided imagery centering exercises.  To the extent that participants feel comfortable, we will share our imagery and experience of the two exercises.


-The day will conclude with a brief review of the importance of experiencing our center and discussion of finding and developing tools for taking oneself to our center. 

(Fee prior to March 15: $50 - after March 15: $60)
