Anoop Kumar, M.D., is a board-certified emergency physician practicing in the Washington, D.C. metro area, where he also leads meditation gatherings for clinicians. He is a frequent public speaker and the author of “Michelangelo’s Medicine: How Redefining the Human Body Will Transform Health and Healthcare.” As a child, Kumar was surrounded by the teachings of Eastern philosophy. He came to recognize a common message woven through philosophy, science, and spirituality — a practical message of well-being, cloaked in esoteric language. His passion is translating this message into modern applications.
More About Dr. Anoop Kumar
“Consciousness is often spoken about as if it's another piece of the puzzle of life, like matter or our thoughts. While it may seem that way, a close analysis reveals that consciousness is of a different order, because everything we know and believe, including perception, science, history, philosophy, and even supernatural phenomena, depends on consciousness being present to begin with.”
“The vast majority of scientists and other so-called thought leaders have not diligently explored the possibility that “matter” is actually an experience we are having in consciousness, not unlike the objects that populate dreams, which are mind-made.”
“Despite many tragedies, we as a society have not acted upon the understanding that the world we see is a reflection of our own state of consciousness. We are a part of every problem and every solution.”
“There has never been the slightest proof that the basic chemical components of the brain can think, feel, or have experience. In fact, it’s extremely naïve to assume such a thing—and yet neuroscience insists upon it.”
Anoop Kumar argues, “You begin to recognize that religion, spirituality, philosophy, and science are ways of arriving at what is real, or what is true. Science approaches it through objective study, by quantifying the world. Spirituality approaches it through subjective study. But what is real is neither objective nor subjective, because it's not a perspective.”
“Do we want a healthy and sustainable society for each and every one of us — the world over — for the first time in… forever? If so, the price of inattention to our collective consciousness is too steep to pay.”
