Summary

While serving with the Peace Corps in Swaziland, Thomas Cowan encountered the work of Rudolf Steiner and Weston A. Price - two men whose ideas would fascinate and challenge him for decades to come. Both drawn to the art of healing and repelled by the way medicine was - and continues to be - practiced in the United States, Cowan returned from Swaziland, went to medical school, and established a practice. He remained intrigued by the work of Price and Steiner and, in particular, with Steiner's provocative claim that the heart is not a pump. Dr. Cowan believes that Steiner was correct that the heart is not a pump, and our understanding of heart disease is completely wrong. And this gross misunderstanding is the reason heart disease remains the most common cause of death worldwide.

Inspiring and thought provoking.

Dr Cowan has written a wonderful book, which is nicely narrated by David Drummond. An intelligent and unconventional thought provoking view point. Inspiring principles. Dr Thomas is a wise man. Hoping for a second book. Highly recommend.

Profound New Approach to Cardiology

This is arguably Dr Thomas Cowan’s Magnus opus and is a book which deserves to be heard by anyone who has a mind and heart open enough to read/hear it. Built on many years of clinical and life experience, it takes us on a journey through medical science, intellectual history and the journey of Dr Cowan, culminating at the understandings presented in the book. It is highly accessible for both experts and those with the necessary curiosity. Furthermore, it is well read by the narrator. Overall an excellent production and highly recommended.

Well worth reading.

I plan on listening to this again, now that I'm more familiar with the author's and narrator's respective styles. Dr. Cowan clearly has a bias going on to this material. He's up front about that, and does not hide it throughout the book. I find this refreshing, and, for me, at times this detracts from his presentation of evidence, and his proposals for fundamental shift in perspective about how we medically understand the heart, heart disease, and heart health. Even with that difficulty, I find myself agreeing with his conclusions as he reaches them. If you're someone who strongly prefers the typical de-personalized presentation of scientific evidence, not (openly) blended with personal bias and other non-scientific data.... A lot of this book will be difficult to get through. But stick with it if you can. I think you'll likely be glad you did. The reading style of the narrator is distracting at first as well. It's somewhere between William Shatner and that guy who does narration for action movie trailers. My review might not sound positive, but it's meant to be. Overall the content is excellent.

Fascinating ideas about heart disease and health

I plan on re-listening to this book. Dr. Cowan has an interesting story and presents great ideas. If you want a "sneak peak" at what he's all about, check out Ben Greenfield's recent interview with Dr. Cowan.

A New Perspective

This doctor's ideas are refreshing in our current System of Medical Health Care Insanity! I will read all of Dr. Cowan's books, content and videos. He speaks the truth in a way that makes sense and is in alignment with the natural order.

Absolutely awesome!

I am very encouraged in learning about our heart in a way I've never heard it taught before; yet it rings true to me personally within my own heart. Thank you again, Dr. Cowan, for sharing with others what you have learned and what you believe to be truth.

Return and Reawakening

At eighty plus it was a joy to touch into and renew connection with many esoteric threads and fascinations. Opening to the Cosmic Heart gives me new grounding and connection and a whole new world of “epi” phenomena to incorporate and live into.

Narrator sounds like a computer generated voice.

Interesting perspective from Dr. Cowan. Helpful advice included. Some of his technical information was challenging for me to fully understand. The narrator’s voice sound computer generated. This was persistently annoying to me.
