Medical Anthopologist Reports on 20-year

Global Exploration on Healing and Recovery


Global Medicine Hunter (R) News

(San Francisco)---It may sound unusual to stalk the heart of healing, since, after all, stalking and heartfelt actions are not commonly partnered, however, when people are sick and ailing, they want  resolution of their suffering--no matter what it takes. "So stalking with all of its intensity and unwavering commitment is just what happens--and rather universally," says medical anthropologist and Professor of Integrative Health at California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS), Meg Jordan, PhD, RN, known as the "Global Medicine Hunter."

Jordan will report on her 20-year journey throughout the world that explored where people give credit when it comes to their remarkable healing and recoveries. Seven distinct belief systems, some bolstered by biomedical evidence, others a mystery from non-ordinary realsm, will be presented.  A sought-after keynoter, international presenter and author, Dr Jordan will be give her exciting findings in a free  presentation as part of a series of faculty talks celebrating the 50th anniversary of CIIS. All are invited.
