[v. 03-25-2017] This page needs updating. I've had to modify the effect of what I began in 2012. I'm currently preparing to further deepen my contributions to the mental, physical, emotional and social health of the people who I can listen to and interact with.
[v. 03-23-2017]This page is being updated after the Inauguration as we prepare to add new and relevant information to gain from the new President's early actions. This is the holding page for resources for Wisdom Day 2017. The date
will be was Wednesday March 15, 2017. That iwas the week prior to the start of Psychotherapy Networker Symposium 2017 from Thursday March 23 to Sunday March 26. I am planning for presenters who have special expertise to share about life and maintaining or regaining health. We will include a focus on acupuncture and neuroscience, from several perspectives. See updated "Presentations and the Kaiser Context." I am making plans to hold the event at the Kaiser-Permanente Center for Total Health [their site]. We are seeking sponsors such as Cancer Treatment Centers of America, Thorne Research.and IriTech security systems.
Note: Those of you who have followed my career for decades know that I survived the Major Traffic Casualty event. I saw some of you today, the 23rd of March when I stopped by the Symposium registration desk but wasn't able to finish the process. I've spent the rest of the day on an adventure of body-mind-social healing. This included a visit to FlexAware founder Steve Shafarman as I received extra tutoring in fine points of movement to activate deeper structural and neurological development.
This year's Theme: Acknowledging both those who are privileged as well as those who are "in the middle" and below in income. (High-Tech --AND-- Simple) . My understanding of what is now possible is that there will be growth in both high-tech and low-tech ways to bring about change in health. Download/view PDF titled, Why This Event? Wisdom Day 2017.

Here is a link to an educator whose concept of powerful -- "Healing through pleasure" -- www.FeliceDunas.com
Dr. Dunas is based in California but her internet site shows that she can educate at corporate and other settings.
For Wisdom Day 2017 I am planning to include information from specialists such as Dr. Dunas whose insights may be pivotal for people with deep concerns about their wellness and/or chronic illness.
I entered Bastyr University in 1985 so that I might contribute to the research of approaches to health that were not only supportive of prescription medication. (Alan Miller, N.D. of Thorne Research took photos with me and some of my early writing back in 1988.) My Ph.D. study was complete but not written. If I have time I'd like to add a chapter now that the new presidency has begun. I have been impressed with the statements by President Trump about wanting to provide the best health care possible to our nation. Eventually this would mean that I will carve out the time to finish my thesis and be able to provide acupuncture theory education as a Ph.D. My addition to the field of health care has consistently been to proclaim the importance of related items such as Light, Energy, Photons, Thought, Nerve reflexes, Social Networks, and much more. I want to be known for being a Ph.D. who points to solid evidence as well as items "worthy of further scientific investigation" based on such items as biochemical and Light/Photon references. Click on tne title of this scientifically based Ph.D. thesis and see the earlier hypothesis page on my teaching site:
Vivek Shanbhag, N.D., M.D. [Ayu, India] was a classmate of mine at Bastyr University's naturopathic physician program. I embedded this video that I found online, to show his depth of knowledge in integrating Ayurvedic medicine and natural therapies.

Building Our Peaceful Future: Healing the Village, Healing the Planet
Video showing the intent behind the Wisdom Day series. Seeking ways that we health professionals can collaborate to deliver effective and affordable applications of science and time-tested traditional approaches.
I trained in battlefield medicine during the Vietnam War but did not have a combat assignment. This is a superb film excerpt showing men and boys motivated to do the wartime work...in another century when women were not easily able to be Warfighters. [I watched this film in theater 5 times and several more on DVD in my home office.] Today's uniformed service is much different, but Family, Friends and Community can still be central in the minds and hearts of those who join.
Treating veterans is an important challenge after they are welcomed home.
