Christopher Herndon is a physician at the University of California, San Francisco. Over the past decade he has been working with remote tribes across Suriname, Brazil, Peru, and Venezuela. His research found that shamans have a complex and remarkable understanding of disease concepts, that are comparable to Western medical science. In a world in which profound environmental and cultural change is transforming traditional societies, the healing knowledge of the shaman is rapidly disappearing. In his talk, Dr. Herndon will be discussing his experiences learning from Amazonian healers on the relevance of traditional medicine to conservation and the importance of shamanism to their medical systems – and to our own.

The talk will start at 7PM.
