Dr. Shamini Jain is a psychologist, scientist, and social entrepreneur. She is founder and CEO of the Consciousness and Healing Initiative (CHI), a nonprofit collaborative accelerator that connects scientists, health practitioners, educators, and artists to help lead humanity to heal ourselves. Shamini also serves as adjunct faculty at UC San Diego, where she is an active member of the UC San Diego Center for Integrative Medicine’s Research Committee. Her book Healing Ourselves: Biofield Science and the Future of Health is available at booksellers worldwide.
CHI was formed through Shamini’s deep desire to bring key stakeholders together to create a coherent and effective movement to move us beyond models of “disease thinking,” into the age of whole-person healing, and personal and societal empowerment.
Shamini integrates her background in clinical psychology, psychoneuroimmunology, spiritual wisdom, and the healing arts to teach people how they can best heal themselves, to live life with joy and spiritual alignment. She is a student of Reverend Rosalyn Bruyere in the healing arts, and a student of the Divine Feminine.
Shamini teaches regularly at leading retreat centers, including Esalen, Kripalu and the Art of Living Retreat Center. Her research has been featured in TIME, US News and World Report, on CNN, and in other news media. She shares research on the science and practice of healing in diverse venues, including NATO, TEDx, major universities and medical centers, health-related conferences, and corporations.
