Daniel P. Stein, MD

Cannabis got me interested in neuroscience and now I’m returning the favour.

My formal studies included a neuroscience bachelor’s degree at the University of Rochester, MD degree at Albany Medical College, neurology residency at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation and neuromuscular fellowship at the National Institutes of Health.

Married with children, I remain a practising neurologist in Sarasota, FL, associate professor in clinical medicine at Florida State University Medical School and owner of the Neurology of Cannabis.

What does the Art and Science of Medicine mean to you? 

… to simultaneously observe the patient through a lens of knowledge and through no lens at all.

What does the Art and Science of Medicine mean to you? 

There is a place for all forms of healing in this world. In emergencies and life-and-death situations we need the mainstream medical help. But in chronic degenerative disease we need to use natural methods of healing, starting from changing the person’s diet and life style. Human body has an amazing ability to heal itself given the right tools!






Dr. Siobahn Dawson

Dr Dawson completed her psychiatric specialization in London. Her passion to facilitate opportunities for people to discover their inner power has led her to explore many healing modalities and non-traditional paths.

She lived in the Amazon with shamans and regularly works with medical intuitives. Her creative vision and desire to share advances in medical thinking established her as one of the first Integrative psychiatrists in South Africa.

In 2016, she founded Anassa Retreats which was born out of a dream to create novel healing spaces where ancient wisdom, ritual & evidenced based techniques enliven a sense of

playfulness, joy and self-exploration.

Being in nature with her 3 little kids and adventurous husband brings her great fulfillment.

“Your life is a sacred blessing. When you can truly bear witness to this statement, feeling it deep into the DNA of your cells…you will live the life you know you are capable of.”


What does the Art and Science of Medicine mean to you? 

When I applied for my psychiatric training position in London, my admission essay related to this concept. Psychiatry is a space where the tension & integration of art and science are beautifully held.

It’s the container where universal questions of mystery are explored, where despair and exaltation are expressed, where vulnerability is cherished; where dance/sound/poetry hold as much significance as the rigors of evidence based research.

It is a privileged position where we remind humans that they are not forsaken.
