• In Pursuit of Happiness

    I’m struck by how many times the word happiness comes up in conversation. Not only the ones that I share in a professional capacity, but in my life ongoing — indeed, in my own head, almost incessantly. I’m guessing that I’m not alone. So, when I saw that a nearly discarded piece of paper, left […]

  • How Will Your Story Go?

    “They” say that today is the first day of the rest of your life. And, I believe that is true. Yet, so many times, I find myself rehashing the past, indeed, reliving it, or at least, playing the past forward. One of the most important things we can do, of course, is to redirect our […]

  • Majesty Shrouded In Mystery

    I think I was 11 years old when I first saw a Redwood Tree. Walking within the eerie primordial mist of Muir Woods, just outside of San Francisco, I was struck by something more awesome than anything I had previously seen or experienced. The forest itself was breathtakingly beautiful, but there was an element of […]

  • The Solar Eclipse: When Darkness Obscures the Light

    Something interesting is going to happen in a few hours. Our sun, the most conspicuous force in the universe beyond the earth itself and apart from our own individual lives within the cosmic reality, is about to disappear — a relatively rare celestial event, at least as far as our single lifetime is concerned; a […]

  • 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 […]
