Shamini Jain, PhD
Mind, Body and Biofield Science: How Consciousness Catalyzes Healing
Dr. Shamini Jain, is a psychologist, scientist, and social profit leader. She is the 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. CHI was formed through Dr. Jain’s deep desire to bring key stakeholders together to
create a coherent and effective movement to move us beyond models of “disease thinking” and
“sick care”, into the study and practice of whole person healing, and societal flourishing.
Dr. Jain obtained her B.A. in Neuroscience and Behavior from Columbia University, and her
Ph.D. degree from the SDSU/UC San Diego Joint Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology, with
a research focus in psychoneuroimmunology. Her award-winning research and her
presentation of it has been featured in major media including TIME, CNN, and Good Day LA, as
well as with two TEDx talks on healing, and several documentaries. Her award-winning book
with Sounds True, “Healing Ourselves: Biofield Science and the Future of Health ”, is available
at booksellers worldwide.
Dr. Jain is a member of the Evolutionary Leaders Circle, faculty at Esalen, Sivananda Ashram
and Omega Institutes, and serves as a board member and scientific advisor for several
nonprofit and social benefit companies, including Safe Harbor, Modern Spirit, and Mirabai.
When she is not sharing her joy and passion for healing empowerment, she enjoys surfing,
singing and spending time with her wonderful family
