I have a personal relationship to this book.
Warren Sheir is the supervisor at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine,
The San Diego Campus. I have come in for acupuncture
once a week for many years. We have an endearing friendship.
That happens when you consistently work closely with
a healing arts practitioner.
As much as Warren has been a witness to various persistent
aches and pains and general conditions improving over the years
in my body, I have enjoyed holding the space of success
for the seed of this book that is finally out in the world.
I now have the beautiful book in my hands,
I look forward to reading it deeper.
I have already absorbed its message that is a message
that all of Washington needs.
The book will be important in the year long project
I am kicking off at this year's Enchanted Garden Installation
at the Pacific Symposium 2010.
The project intends
to Education Washington on Real Food Safety.
There is great power behind this.
The very future of food and a full bodied
integrative medicine is at stake.
The forces are aligning.
Here are the choices.
Continue to centralize
our food supply through promoting industrial
agricultural method. Continue to keep people
in the dark about how to eat. Continue
to back a pharmaceutical approach to handling
Or move back into alignment with the beat of nature.
This second approach to health has existed
since before Hippocrates was noted as the Father of
Medicine. It has been noted in more than 8000 years
of earth-based wisdom from many cultures, and 10,000
years of farming.
The book--"Ancient Wisdom, Modern Kitchen"
is a wake up call for this second direction
that deeply needs to not only survive this day,
but thrive if we are to truly enter an Enchanted Garden Era
of 1000 years of peace.
Dr. Bernard Jensen, my spiritual father, and a man
whose work is not being revived, once held
a ten penny nail in one hand and a ripe organic cherry
in the other. He would say, "These are both high sources
of needed iron, an essential mineral. Which source
of iron are you choosing?. I have made my choice."
Today, without knowing it, most of us are being
fed the direction of the ten penny nail. It is hard to digest.
It causes the need for massive education now
that can begin as we each get off the cauch
and realize that government, and healing,
is not a spectator sport.
May Warren Sheir, his co-authors, and the energy
behind "Ancient Wisdom, Modern Kitchen" thrive.
