Kindness as a way of Being

By Kalpana (Rose) M. Kumar, M.D.

“Namaste”, said the 6-foot Sikh man standing outside the front door of our hotel. He was wearing traditional Indian clothes and a turban, as he bowed his head to me with his hands folded in a prayer position. He was greeting me, a total stranger this way, because “Guest is god”. It means, ‘I honor your True Nature with my True Nature’. The sincere kindness that permeated from his heart into mine was palpable and brought tears to my eyes. 




Listen to this award winning podcast about Transforming Healthcare by our very own Dr. Kumar and her vision for Medicine, at this time when our trust in the corporate medical system is at an all time low.

Ten Characteristics of a Conscious Relationship

Eric Ehrke, LCSW, LMFT


1.     Each partner realizes their loving relationship has a hidden purpose…the healing of childhood wounds and prior illusions. Daily interactions take on more meaning and provides a greater sense of control when couples embrace this prospective

2.     Each partner is motivated to create a more accurate image of their lover. Romantic lovers often confuse adult partnership with their early primary caretaker dynamics. When this occurs later in the relationship partners often project their negative traits onto their partner. This makes things worse because everyone needs to live in the same time zone. Then each partner is just another wounded person and not a savior, which is a common childhood illusion.


UnDo It! This Holiday Season

Joy Lenz, RD CD

I just wrapped up another session of Plant U. It was an 8 week course to help people eat more plant based to achieve their health goals. One of the fun things we do is pick a book to read and have a special evening where we do a virtual book club. This time the group picked UnDo It! by Dr Dean Ornish and his wife Anne.
