Deep Medicine
The entangled web of health and social structures

With Dr. Rupa Marya  •  Recorded Thursday, January 5, 2023

An online conversation facilitated by Zaya & Maurizio Benazzo

Join our SAND Community Conversation with guest Dr. Rupa Marya as she illuminate the hidden connections between our biological systems and the profound injustices of our political and economic systems. What is deep medicine?  How can re-establishing our relationships with the Earth and one another help us to heal? We will combine Patel's latest scientific research and scholarship on globalization with stories of Marya’s work with patients living in marginalized communities to begin to grasp the deep medicine that has the potential to heal not only our bodies, but the world.

Note: Due to reasons beyond his control, Raj Patel was not able to participate in this conversation.
