With the Founder and CEO of the
Consciousness and Healing Initiative (CHI)
Dr. Shamini Jain


Discover what placebo research is teaching us about the power of intention, relationship, and ritual to expand your consciousness and manifest the life you desire. 

Explore the vital role of connecting with your biofield for a deeper healing experience.


We’ve been hearing about the placebo effect for decades, yet our understanding of the science behind this facet of the healing experience is limited.

A placebo is a medically inert substance or technique that serves as the “control” in clinical trials. The “effect” refers to the well-documented phenomenon of patients claiming that they feel better when receiving a placebo.

Given that the concept of “healing” essentially refers to the restoration of harmony within our biofield,  the energy field that surrounds and permeates our body…

… what exactly is happening in our biofield when placebo-based healing is occuring?

In fact, in light of the placebo effect, which can help people heal because they have the expectation they will heal, what does it even mean to heal or to be a healer

Clearly, our consciousness plays a significant role in the healing process. Research shows that placebo responses can include changes in heart rate, blood pressure, anxiety levels, pain perception, fatigue, and even brain activity. These effects point to the healing keys and the biofield’s role in health and wellbeing — which can help anyone who’s suffering.

Are these remissions indeed spontaneous... that is, without any cause? Or have we simply not understood the processes by which these seemingly miraculous healings occur? And, once we understand the processes, how can we enhance healing and flourishing for ourselves, and for others?

In other words, how can we proactively achieve the placebo effect without having to be “tricked” into activating it?

We could then enable our natural healing response to harmonize our hormones, strengthen our immune system, reduce anxiety and depression, and even improve our sleep.

What’s more, as we consciously initiate this healing response, our biofield can become a healing field for others, allowing us to facilitate healing for our loved ones, or even to simply “calm” a room.

Be guided by a leading-edge practitioner of consciousness, healing, and the science of wellbeing.

Join us for this online event as psychologist and scientist Dr. Shamini Jain shares what biofield science teaches us about the power to heal ourselves and others.

She’ll blend in ancient understandings of energy and consciousness... the power of inner sound-making to uplevel our biofields for powerful healing responses, and how these relate to the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine in each of us... and how to harmonize energies in our bodies for wellbeing and fulfillment.

Your consciousness is a powerful healing tool. During this hour, you’ll understand why you must move beyond the mind for powerful healing effects — and discover a practice to powerfully unite your mind, energy, and body to direct your consciousness for powerful healing.


In this 60-minute free online event, you’ll:

  • Understand why the mind in and of itself is insufficient for manifesting your ideal life
  • Explore Indigenous medicine understandings of “masculine” and “feminine” aspects of consciousness in each of us (regardless of gender identification) — and how they relate to healing
  • Look at placebo research from the holistic feminine perspective, which has largely been omitted from the conversation
  • Be introduced to the primary indicating elements of a placebo — understanding why Placebo = H.E.A.L. (Holistic Elements that Activate Life) — and the elements that galvanize your healing response: expectation, conditioning, ritual, relationship, meaning, and context
  • Experience an inner sound-healing exercise to unify the masculine and feminine aspects of your consciousness and bring harmony to your being

We need an evolution in how we best approach the way we heal. Our blind spot is arguably holding us back from taking what we can learn from the placebo effect and biofield science to create a new model for healing our growing epidemic of disease and addiction.

Born in an Indian Jain household, Shamini is rooted in Jain dharma as well as Tantric teachings and practices. A recognized expert in biofield science and healing, she has conducted pioneering research in the areas of meditation and hands-on energy work. 

Deepak Chopra calls Shamini “a visionary scientist and collaboration catalyst with the energy and heart of a healer.”

During this illuminating event, you’ll also hear about a new opportunity to work more deeply with Shamini to understand what modern science teaches us about the power to heal ourselves and others in her new 7-week live video course.
