Just ten questions: Mike Cummings
What gets you out of bed in the morning?
Most mornings I stay in bed and practice languages on Duolingo – Mandarin, Portuguese, and Korean currently. Twice a week I head into town early after a triple espresso and hopefully still eight hours of sleep.
What would you save in a fire?
I guess the question is about any material (flammable) things that are particularly important to me… still nothing is coming!
How do you get your qi moving?
Lu Jong – a Tibetan movement practice derived from Tantrayana Buddhism and Bon traditions. Technically, I am now a Lu Jong five elements teacher – quite a transition from starting my career in the military

Don’t work so hard, and don’t believe everything you hear from adults, no matter how important they seem to be
Advice for your 70-year-old self?
You made it then! None of us were expecting that! I guess you better keep doing the same 🙂
What makes you sweat?
I used to love sweating from every pore. Now that only ever happens in a sauna or steam room
Your biggest headache?
The negative influence of capitalism in healthcare
What makes you feel alive?
Walking in forests or mountains
Favourite thing in your clinic room?
A pair of eyes with eyelashes drawn on the wall to make a surprised face out of some plastered in holes…
