Subtle Medicine and the Elements of Healing

Dr. Linda is an integrative health practitioner, internationally recognized in scientific communities, as a catalyst for the integrations of all medicines in the interest of world peace. For over 3 decades, she has been involved in fostering communication, scientific exchange and healing within the global integrative health community through chairing international conferences and forums, such as the World Congress of Integrated Medicines.

Dr. Lancaster believes that in the acceptance, appreciation and integration of all medicines, there lies a powerful and as yet untapped path to world peace. Dr. Lancaster believes peace can most rapidly be achieved through the awareness of consciousness.

For over 30 years, Dr. Lancaster has been integrating medicines and bringing together professionals with widely diverse backgrounds to communicate, learn and experientially understand our oneness. The result is a large, growing and inspired community of multi-talented, broadly educated healers, actively committed to patient and planetary health.

Over the years Dr. Linda has been honored with many awards for exceptional service and consciousness she brings to medicine, including, The Inner and Outer Peace Award, The Conscious Healer and Humanitarian Award and the Gold Medal Award for Integrative Medicine.





Alfredo Sfeir Younis
(Dzambling Cho Tab Khen)
GFIM Peace Ambassador

Healing the Earth is a Condition to Human Healing and World Peace: Towards Spiritual Medicine

Alfredo Sfeir Younis is from Chile. He studied at the University of Chile, where he received his Bachelor in Economics and Commercial Engineering Degree. Then, he studied at the U. of Rhode Island (South Kingston) and the U. of Wisconsin (Madison), USA, with a Master and PH.D. degrees in natural resources economics.

He was the first environmental economist at the World Bank, where he worked for nearly three decades since 1976, reaching the level of Director. A World Bank’s Special Representative to the United Nations between 1996 and 2003, in New York and Geneva, with important contributions to human rights. He has published extensively on matters having to do with economics, social development, poverty, human rights, and environmental/global issues. He has offered a new paradigm in economics based on human consciousness.

In addition, Alfredo Sfeir-Younis has engaged deeply into spirituality, alternative forms of medicine, and world peace. A spiritual master and a recognized peace leader. He has received many international peace awards including, for example, Peace Ambassador of GIFM; Life Time Ambassador of Peace given by the Khalsa Council; Peace, Mercy and Tolerance Award given by the World Association of Educators for World Peace; World Healer Award by the Lama Gangchen World Peace Foundation; and several others. He has engaged in new forms of integrated medicine to heal people and the planet. A unique exponent of “Spiritual Medicine”.

He believes that ‘spirituality must be where it is not’, with a special emphasis on spirituality within the public domain: economics, politics and business. He has written about spiritual economics for the last few decades and has offered a new paradigm to address local and global issues. Some of his publications include: “Another Meaning of Enlightenment”, “The 10 Spiritual Laws to Heal the World”, “The Power of Light”, “Global Warming and Inner Warming”, “The Tao of Management”, and the like.

In 2013, he run for the presidency of Chile, as a member of the Green Party and, in 2017, he run for the Chilean Senate. Currently, he is the founder and president of the Zambuling Institute For Human Transformation, Chile.

This congress takes place at a very important moment in human history. Despite our material progress, the world family remains more fragile than ever. We must change the world now, otherwise, our future is uncertain. Global warming, ozone layer depletion, loss of biodiversity, contamination of the water and air, are all real. It is in this Congress where we must commit ourselves to change the world through medicine; but, with a different type of medicine. As GIFM Peace Ambassador, I have a major of responsibility with ‘future generations’. This congress is about healing the planet and healing ourselves. The planet is not a “thing”, it is a live entity. Because healing is spiritual in nature, modern medicine, as practiced today, is incapable to address both healing the planet and healing ourselves. What form of medicine is at the very core of healing the planet and of healing ourselves? The only path is a medicine based on a major change in human consciousness. This is what I call “Spiritual Medicine”: a form of medicine that will enable us to heal the planet and heal ourselves through changes in consciousness. Healing the planet and ourselves are two completely interdependent processes. If the water of rivers and lakes are polluted, our inner water is also polluted, and this applies to water, air, space, earth and fire. Healing and medicine are not just about human beings; it is about all forms of life in the planet. A person cannot be healed, or be healthy, if the planet is sick. The opposite is also true.

Most countries are managing diseases and not managing health proper. A critical theme of this presentation. To manage health, we have to go far beyond medicine, as we need to pay attention to the quality of our food and nutrition, housing, neighborhoods, pollution of all sorts, etc. Managing health means managing our material and spiritual welfare; managing our food and nutrition; addressing issues of excessive use of agrochemicals, pesticides, herbicides, additives, addictive substances, colorants, GMOs, transgenic seeds, etc.; a major emphasis onto preventive medicine… To manage health, economics and politics play a fundamental role. There is no adequate institutional system to heal the planet yet. We need a new approach to world peace. Peace is not a thing. Peace is a state of being and must be self-realized. Inner peace is the only way to world peace. Also, there will be no inner peace without inner healing as a fundamental condition to world peace. Two major ingredients to inner healing: healing nature and inner silence. Thus, healing nature is a pre-condition to world peace. To experience inner peace necessitates a new relationship with others and our planet.


Spiritual Medicine unfolds through the interaction between spirituality and healing (and curing). Integrated medicine is not simply about the integration of different forms of medicine, but the integration of all forms of life in this planet. This is a major change in paradigm. Moving onto this path does not necessarily imply more medicine; it implies more consciousness. We need to bring consciousness into medicine. This is the essence. The fundamental core is that an imbalance in any form of consciousness, will generate various illnesses. The presentation will illustrate those illnesses that emanate from imbalances in several forms of consciousness: “pure consciousness”, “material consciousness”, “five senses’ consciousness”, “growth and development consciousness”, and “interdependent consciousness”. Many illnesses are the result of a disconnect among these forms of consciousness. For all of the consciousness to work in harmony and peace, there must be a Meta Language and a Meta Consciousness.

The essence of spirituality is to finally know our mission and many people need healing because they are away from the path of their mission. Important instruments are prayer, contemplation, meditation, yoga, silence… Today, there is plenty of research explaining the relationship between religion and spirituality and human health: coping with bad times in one’s life; diminish the intensity of negative sentiments and emotions; increase our times and sensations of inner and social happiness; address a state where someone is more pessimistic, has lost vision and hope about the future, and even loss of life purpose; improve the lack of self-steam and self-confidence; diminish anxiety; improve other treatments geared to stop using drugs; and change social behaviors. Patients care by necessity has to involve compassion, listening, touching, eye to eye contact, involvement, commitment, etc. A major theme of the presentation.






Special Invited Guest Speaker
Ambassador Anwarul K. Chowdhury
“The Culture of Peace and Healing for Humanity”

Ambassador Anwarul K. Chowdhury
has devoted many years as an inspirational champion for sustainable peace and development and ardently advancing the cause of the global movement for the culture of peace that has energized civil society all over the world.

Ambassador Chowdhury’s legacy and leadership in advancing the best interest of the global community are boldly imprinted in his pioneering initiative in March 2000 as the President of the Security Council that achieved the political and conceptual breakthrough leading to the adoption of the groundbreaking UN Security Council Resolution 1325 in which the Council recognized for the first time the role and contribution of women in the area of peace and security and the equality of their participation at all decision-making levels..

Equally pioneering are his initiatives at the United Nations General Assembly in 1999 for adoption of the landmark Declaration and Programme of Action on a Culture of Peace and in 1998 for the proclamation of the “International Decade for Culture of Peace and Nonviolence for the Children of the World (2001-2010)”.

He served as Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Bangladesh to the United Nations in New York from 1996 to 2001 and as the Under-Secretary-General and High Representative of the United Nations, responsible for the most vulnerable countries of the world from 2002 to 2007.

In March 2003, the Soka University of Tokyo, Japan conferred to Ambassador Chowdhury an Honorary Doctorate for his work on women’s issues, child rights and culture of peace as well as for the strengthening of the United Nations. In May 2012, he received a Doctor of Humane Letters honoris causa degree from the Saint Peter’s University of the United States.

             Ambassador Chowdhury is a member of the Advisory Council of IMPACT Leadership 21 and is the first recipient of the IMPACT Leadership 21’s Global Summit Frederick Douglass Award Honoring Men Who Are Champions For Women’s Advancement in October 2013.

He is a member of the UN High Level Advisory Group for the Global Study on the 15-year implementation of Security Council resolution 1325 (2000) and also one of the 12-member Asia-Pacific Regional Advisory Group on Women, Peace and Security hosted in Bangkok.

He has been the Chair of the International Drafting Committee on the Human Right to Peace; an initiative coordinated from Geneva and was a founding member of the Board of Trustees of the New York City Peace Museum.

             Ambassador Chowdhury is the Founder of the New York-based Global Movement for The Culture of Peace.

He is a founding Co-Chair of the International Ecological Safety Collaborative Organization (IESCO) with headquarters in China and is a member of the Advisory Council of the National Peace Academy in US.

He is the Honorary Chair of the International Day of Peace NGO Committee at the UN, New York and Chairman of the Global Forum on Human Settlements, both since 2008. He has been a part of the 12-member Wisdom Council of the Summer of Peace for the years 2012, 2013 and 2014, a world-wide participatory initiative to advance the Culture of Peace.

He has been decorated by the Government of Burkina Faso in West Africa with the country’s highest honour “L’Ordre National” in 2007 in Ouagadougou for his championship of the cause of the most vulnerable countries.

Dr. Chowdhury has structured curricula and conducted courses on “The Culture of Peace” at the Soka University of America and the City University of New York in 2008 and 2009. He also served as an Adjunct Professor at the School of Diplomacy, Seton Hall University of the United States.

He is a Patron of the Committee on Teaching About the UN (CTAUN), New York. He is the Chair of the Jury of the Peace in the Streets Global Film Festival (PSGFF) and member of the Advisory Board of the Orlando-based Global Peace Film Festival (GPFF).

Public speaking and advocacy for the culture of peace, women’s equality and global citizenship keep him engaged at the present time.

James Gordon, MD

Center for Mind-Body Medicine, Washington, D.C.

Transforming Trauma: Healing Individual and Population-Wide Psychological Trauma

Trauma is universal. A recent US government survey revealed that a stunning 60% of US adults had experienced significant childhood abuse and neglect. 8% of the US population, 28 million Americans, will have “post-traumatic stress disorder” (PTSD) a chronic disabling condition, characterized by anxiety and agitation, difficulty focusing and sleeping, recurring nightmares and flashbacks of traumatic events, emotional withdrawal, and, often, a sense of hopelessness and despair. And all of us, wealthy as well as poor, young and old, will sooner or later deal with the inevitable trauma of illness and old age, the loss of friends and family, and the prospect of our own death.
Trauma is inevitable. And healing is possible for everyone.
All of us have the capacity to reverse the biological, psychological, and social damage that trauma brings, to break free of trauma induced loops of impaired physiology, mental rumination and emotional pain, and the guilt and shame that compound trauma’s destructive effects. We can help and heal ourselves.
In this talk by one of the world’s leaders in healing individual and population wide psychological trauma, Dr. James Gordon will share the basic principles of self-awareness, self-care and group support that he and his Center for Mind-Body Medicine Colleagues have successfully used with hundreds of thousands of adults and children here in the US and overseas, including in Bosnia, Kosovo, Israel and Gaza, in post-9/11 New York and post-Katrina southern Louisiana, and for U.S Military returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

James S. Gordon, MD, a Harvard educated psychiatrist, is a world-renowned expert in using mind-body medicine to heal depression, anxiety, and psychological trauma. He is the Founder and Director of The Center for Mind-Body Medicine, and recently served as Chairman of the White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine Policy. Dr. Gordon has created ground-breaking programs of comprehensive mind-body healing for traumatized children and families in Bosnia, Kosovo, Israel and Gaza, in post-9/11 New York and post-Katrina southern Louisiana, and for U.S Military returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. Dr. Gordon’s most recent book is Unstuck: Your Guide to the Seven Stage Journey Out of Depression (Penguin Press). His work with war-traumatized children in Gaza and Israel has been featured in The New York Times and on CBS 60 Minutes.

Terry Tempest Williams
Author & Environmental Activist

Message for Us and Our Planet

Terry Tempest Williams has been called “a citizen writer,” a writer who speaks and speaks out eloquently on behalf of an ethical stance toward life.  A naturalist and fierce advocate for freedom of speech, she has consistently shown us how environmental issues are social issues that ultimately become matters of justice. “So here is my question,” she asks,  “what might a different kind of power look like, feel like, and can power be redistributed equitably even beyond our own species?”

Williams, like her writing, cannot be categorized.  She has testified before Congress on women’s health issues, been a guest at the White House, has camped in the remote regions of Utah and Alaska wildernesses and worked as “a barefoot artist” in Rwanda.
Known for her impassioned and lyrical prose, Terry Tempest Williams is the author of the environmental literature classic, Refuge: An Unnatural History of Family and Place; An Unspoken Hunger: Stories from the Field;  Desert Quartet; Leap;  Red: Patience and Passion in the Desert; The Open Space of Democracy; and Finding Beauty in a Broken World. Her most recent book, When Women Were Birds was published in Spring 2012 by Sarah Crichton Books/Farrar, Straus and Giroux. She is a columnist for the magazine The Progressive. Her new book is The Story of My Heart by Richard Jeffries, as rediscovered by Brooke Williams and Terry Tempest Williams (Torrey House Press), in which she and Brooke Williams expand upon the 1883 book by Richard Jeffries. Williams is also currently working on a new book titled The Hour of Land: A Personal Topography of America’s National Parks (Sarah Crichton Books/Farrar, Straus and Giroux). The book will be published in 2016 to honor the centennial of the National Park Service.

In 2006, Williams received the Robert Marshall Award from The Wilderness Society, their highest honor given to an American citizen.  She also received the Distinguished Achievement Award from the Western American Literature Association and the Wallace Stegner Award given by The Center for the American West. She is the recipient of a Lannan Literary Fellowship and a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship in creative nonfiction. In 2009, Terry Tempest Williams was featured in Ken Burns’ PBS series on the national parks. In 2014, on the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act, Ms. Williams received the Sierra Club’s John Muir Award honoring a distinguished record of leadership in American conservation.

Terry Tempest Williams is currently the Annie Clark Tanner Scholar in Environmental Humanities at the University of Utah and the Provostial Scholar at Dartmouth College. Her writing has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, Orion Magazine, and numerous anthologies worldwide as a crucial voice for ecological consciousness and social change. She and her husband, Brooke Williams live in the desert and mountains of the American West.

And when I think a word is strange that’s where it achieves the meaning. And when I think life is strange that’s where life begins.
– Clarice Lispecter

Prof. Martin Pall, PhD

Professor Emeritus, Biochemistry & Basic Medical Sciences, Washington State University

Wireless Tech & The Coming 5G Distributed Antennas – An Invisible Hazard for all of us as well as the planet

Martin Pall is Professor Emeritus in Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences at Washington State University. Dr. Pall has long been focused on biological regulatory mechanisms of chronic inflammatory diseases. His recent groundbreaking research clarifies mechanisms by which cell phone and wireless radiation can initiate disregulating processes in the body. In a 2015 review paper, Dr. Pall demonstrates EMFs can produce widespread neuropsychiatric effects, including depression.

Dr. Pall says we can confidently debunk industry’s argument of more than 20 years that there cannot be a biological mechanism of action from low-intensity EMFs with the new understanding that the force on a cell’s voltage sensor from low intensity EMFs are millions of times stronger than the forces on singly charged groups elsewhere in the cell.







Benjamin F. Asher, MD, FACS

Evolving From Fear into Love: The New Medical Paradigm


Fear has been one of the cornerstones of Western medical practice. It permeates all facets of healthcare and it is antithetical to the healing process. The enlightened age of medicine has it’s foundations in the field and vibration of love, the fundamental frequency of creation. This presentation will be an exploration of a physician’s transition from the established paradigm of fear based practice into the open hearted field of love based medicine.


A New York City based, board-certified Otolaryngologist (Head and Neck Surgeon) Dr. Asher has been at the forefront of applying alternative methods to ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) disorders since the beginning of his medical career over thirty years ago.   Prior to attending medical school, Dr. Asher worked as a full-time meditation teacher.  His four decades of meditation practice and spiritual inquiry have informed his perspectives on health and wholeness.

His quest to identify the root cause of symptoms led him into the field of chronic systemic illness, particularly in the area of Lyme and other tick-borne diseases.  Supporting patients with complex ailments was the impetus for investigating how health challenges can serve as a portal way to positive personal transformation.

Dr. Asher’s conventional training includes: the University of Iowa where he was selected to serve as Chief Resident; and Harvard Medical School, where he completed a fellowship in Pediatric ENT. He has served on the faculty of Harvard, Washington University, and Dartmouth medical schools.

He has served on the board of the American Holistic Medical Association and is the founder and former chairperson of the Committee on Alternative Medicine for the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery.

Dr. Asher has published numerous professional articles and book chapters.



Glen Rein, PhD

Glee Biologics & Quantum-Biology Research Lab

Chemical and Quantum Information Storage in Water

After reviewing the historic precedence for information storage in water, this presentation will present original research addressing the question of which types of water are optimal for storing different types of information. Different types of water will be classified in terms of their cluster size and characterized in terms of their electrical properties. Electrical conductivity, measured at one of the resonant frequencies of water, was used to monitor the effects of different types of energy/information on water. The different types of energies studied include chemical information, classical & non-classical EM fields, sound and light. In addition bio-energy from healers was used as an energy of consciousness. Implications of the research findings will be discussed in terms of the ability of the body, mind and spirit to “read” information stored in water to manifest healing.






Zachary Bush, MD
Revolution Health Center
Charlottesville, VA

Impaired Bacterial Communication and Chronic Illness
—How Industrial Technologies Are Impairing Our Potential for Good Health and How to Strengthen Resiliency

Dr. Zachary Bush will discuss how activities of modern industries have degraded our extracellular matrix and reduced necessary bacterial communication, leading to sky-rocketing incidence of chronic illness. Taking a macro ‘ecosystem’ view of health, he will discuss biological impacts from soil deficiencies due to agricultural and farming practices; impacts from the herbicide glyphosate; and heavy metal exposures; and biological impacts from electromagnetic fields. Together, these key biological disruptors have significantly impacted the ‘tight junctions’ between cells, reduced the number of bacterial species in our bodies, and bacterial communication, and have led to greatly increased vulnerability to illness and disease. Dr. Bush will describe how we can manage exposure to our modern, chemical environment and food supply, strengthen the “firewall” of the gut lining, repair the gut from glyphosate, promote a diversity of healthy gut bacteria, and restore lost bacterial communication in order to greatly improve health.
