• Graduation Day

    During the course of any given month I have so many interesting conversations. Perhaps you do as well. One of those that took place at SunRaven recently concerned our use of language, and two words in particular, derived from the same root: disciple and discipline; strikingly similar but worlds apart. And coincidentally, as it often […]

  • Doctors Take Care of Sick People, Nature Takes Care of the Healthy

    A young man visited SunRaven a few weeks ago. He was applying for the job as our farmer for the upcoming season. Among many other things that impressed me about him, along with his vibrant energy and enthusiasm, was something he wrote in his cover letter. Indeed, he deserves the credit for the title of […]

  • Wellbeing Begins With the Decision and Commitment to Being Well

    Very often I am asked to explain what my approach to healing is. I usually begin by addressing the question of health; specifically the definition of health….what is it that we’re actually trying to achieve? For many, this seems odd….it should be obvious, isn’t it….we want to be free of disease and live a long […]

  • Thoughts For The Emerging Spring

    I believe that our understanding of health has reached a new level and as such medicine is evolving into a new era; finally. What’s so special about this next period is that individuals will be treated with the status they deserve, on par with their doctors and other healers. This new era, though, is not […]

  • Feeling Great Before 8 – Siempre Mejor

    Last week I had the privilege and the opportunity to spend a week of teaching at Rancho La Puerta, the oldest “health resort” in North America, founded by Edmond and Deborah Szekely in 1940. Indeed, they were way ahead of their times. What began as a simple high mountain oasis is now a lush landscape […]

  • Without Quality, the Numbers Don’t Matter

    Now a month into the New Year let’s take a moment to reflect. How are you doing? How are you really doing? In particular, if you made resolutions four weeks ago, how is that going? Chances are, in our typical tendency to be harsh on ourselves, you might feel that you are already a little […]

  • If you see your glass is half empty, pour it into a smaller glass.

    I just read that recently and felt that it was worth noting here as well. Indeed, that’s a powerful concept – the emptiness of expectation, and the fulfillment found in the now. There is deep truth and wisdom in the suggestion. And, that being the case, I’m not sure these words need that much explanation. […]

  • While the election is over, IT’S not over.

    The election result is an actually a reflection of a deep wound that exists now; a rift, that might have been partially healed, that is pulling apart once again. Just like a wound on your little finger, it’s quite sensitive; and it’s once again prone to infection and worse if it’s allowed to fester. In […]

  • Slow Medicine for Arthritis

    Arthritis, or degenerative joint disease, is an inflammatory condition that causes intense pain, resulting in limited mobility and a chain reaction of problems – including isolation, sadness, and frustration. Since arthritis is an inflammatory condition, the antidote to arthritis is the anti-inflammatory lifestyle. Find out more in this six minute video with Michael Finkelstein MD, […]

  • Slow Medicine for Heart Health

    In the case of most illnesses, we have the opportunity to respond conventionally and/or holistically, so as to resolve the root problem and return to balance. In the case of heart disease, however, the first sign of a problem may be a fatal heart attack, as is the case 1/3 of the time. For this […]
