In this book, Dr. Sankaran introduces his latest approach to case-taking called the WISE ( Witnessing the Inner Song Experience) processes.
One of the main benefits of using the unique WISE processes is that it serves as a really good bypass from the patient’s life story and situation and takes us directly into his imagination and core experience. What emerges from the process makes the homoeopathic remedy very clear for the physician. The processes also can prove therapeutic for the patient. Through detailed cases Dr. Sankaran takes us step by step into this journey. The WISE processes take Homeopathic case taking to a level far deeper than ever before.
Review by Dr. Carlos Eduardo Leitão – Homeopathic Physician – Brazil
My first contact with Dr. Rajan Sankaran happened through the book “The Sensation in Homeopathy” in 2006. At the time I was celebrating my first decade as an homeopathic doctor and the book meant a revolution in my life and in my professional practice. Dr. Sankaran launched new and luminous concepts on a science of more than 200 years, which was believed to be already consolidated and complete…[read more]
I had the pleasure of eagerly read 16 other books of his authorship and in the last fifteen years, travel three times to India and become a dedicated disciple of this distinguished Indian master, who is now recognized as one of the greatest homeopathic physicians in history and one of its most prolific writers. Thus, being invited to write the foreword to the Portuguese edition of this masterpiece is an honor and a gift to me.
The Sensation Method, the seven levels of experience, the understanding of the kingdoms from which remedies is originated, among other great contributions by Rajan Sankaran, are now common themes in homeopathy classes all over the world. Recently, he again surprised us by bringing a process developed by him into the clinic, transforming it into a great collective healing movement of individual patterns. The WISE process has started to be applied to groups from all the world who attend The Other Song Academy, Sankaran’s school of Advanced Homeopathy in Mumbai, later being presented at Seminars around the world and finally, due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, became an online, live course, which was attended more than a thousand participants in Europe and South America. In this 8-sessions process, the experiences create a community environment of deep connection, collaboration and empathy, which lead participants to even deeper layers of unconscious patterns that are integrated and re-signified. The dynamics in pairs allow us to live the experience of being an observer and observed, of openness and help, a human being in touch with another human being, in a posture of acceptance, open mind (non-judgment), humility and deep respect. This process was evaluated by all participants as a reason for profound changes in personal life and relationships.
“From Shadow to Light” was born from these beautiful therapeutic experiences of self-discovery. It is a work that launches a milestone because it brings concepts that are absolutely unprecedented both in homeopathy and in the various known psychological therapies, creating a new line of treatment based on speech and awareness.
In this book, Dr. Sankaran generously teaches us all the details of this process that he has been developing for the past 30 years, showing practical examples of how to apply it in homeopathic consultation to lead to a more accurate and much more confident prescription. It is a solid guide through the intricacies of a technique whose aim is to unveil the dissonant pattern, a kind of other song that resonates inside us and that keeps us victims and executioners in our own inner drama. As we become aware of this pattern, we experience a freedom and lightness like never before. I suggest readers to dive into it carefully and to apply this knowledge in their patients or in themselves to watch its quick and consistent results.
Carl Gustav Jung said: “Until you become conscious, the unconscious will direct your life and you will call it destiny”. We live in the “Age of Consciousness”. It came to medicine with Freud, expanded through many thinkers and now it is transformed by Sankaran.

Review by Luke Norland
“The ideas in this book are very stimulating, as always, and reminded me of the effectiveness of Dr. Sankaran’s case-taking approach. I found myself immediately becoming more aware and in-tune with the non-human-specific expressions and hand gestures of my patients. The descriptions of how to engage in the WISE case-taking process are very clear.[read more]
The instructions given for helping the patient access their inner pattern and deeper levels are the clearest yet! It can be put into practice straight away within the context of a regular consultation.
To summarise, it is a very clear distillation of Dr. Sankaran’s case-taking process. For those who are already familiar with Synergy and Sensation, it is a very clearly laid-out reminder of how to understand and work with the levels in case-taking. I imagine that, even for those unfamiliar with the previous works, that it would be a very good primer to stimulate interest in exploring previous works.
This title really hones in on the case-taking process itself, which makes the technique much more accessible. Even when you are familiar with the process, you still need reminders of how to use it in the most effective way. This book definitely achieves that!”

Review by Dr. Sudhir Baldota
Thank you for this book. From Shadow to Light, just finished reading it in silence from cover to cover. HMP online was kind to send a copy promptly.
Heliatus leucocephalus ; Alumina ; Hyoscyamus Niger ; Sarracenia purpurea; Limnoperna fortune, Mytilus edulis ; Cyclamen and Actea spicata.Witnessing how each of the above cases unfolded and went deeper and deeper towards their individual experiences was a treat to observe. The comments in between these cases made it further clear and lucid to understand each case.[read more]
Even though some aspects were seemingly familiar with Synergy and Sensation it was lovely to observe the artistic process. How each patient narrated their individual experiences looking at …the trees, swans, lotus, elephants, goat, landscape, woman & Ramana Maharishi.
“ One picture is worth a thousand words “
Wow! this technique being so so refined yet fairly simple to understand will take years of consistent training, practice and patience to make it reproducible in practice not only for a beginner however for an experienced practitioner too.
It was interesting to also see,how not to get lost in stories and miss out on what truly is important about each individual case & how these dots finely connect to each other to form a pattern at a deeper level. How subtly and patiently you detached the patient from his / her logical thinking mind , yet remaining in question of not knowing what will he / she will express next & step by step patiently “ exploring – observing – exploring – observing “ their gestures , their pattern and energy emerged was a fountain of joy to experience. As Misha said a AHA moment the other day.
Words are falling short in this very moment to express how it felt reading this wonderful book.
Thank you once again for sharing this knowledge & WISE process for Homoeopaths and Homeopathy at large.
Gratitude & Love[/read]
