They say a repeat customer is a happy customer. That might be why I’ve enrolled in Hippocrates programs four times since June 2017, and why I have a fifth trip planned for November. I love Hippocrates because it’s a mind, body, and spiritual retreat. For a Type 2 diabetic like me, it has also been […]

Recently in western society, there has been an unwavering trend towards vegetarianism. We are finally acknowledging the abundant positives from consuming foods that do not leave behind debris. Further, we have de-intellectualized nutrition and started to respond to our own instincts in this matter.

Over time, I actually learned to like very well-done, often times totally burnt food, especially toast and pizza.

In 1975, I began to develop a vision improvement procedure that I called “open focus.” I soon realized that this method affected a lot more than vision. The technique was based on a specific aspect of human behavior that I had observed for many years – behavior that deals with the way in which we habitually approach our life experiences and consequently learn. I noticed that most people were always looking for something specific in life and that in this process they missed everything they weren’t looking for. Since it appears that most of life’s revelations occur when we are not looking for them, I began to realize that the way in which most of us were seeing was only allowing us to view, and thereby experience, a partial reality.

One day during her senior year, Ruth Whalen broke out in hives. She assumed she was allergic to the clams she had eaten earlier in the week and an emergency room doctor injected her with epinephrine (adrenaline). She became psychotic. Unknowingly, she had an anaphylactic response — not to eating clams, but to drinking Coca-Cola. Ruth was allergic to caffeine. Already overstimulated, the adrenaline took her over the edge.
