“Wellness is the result of a human being becoming integrated” —Siegel




The Acropolis, Athens, Greece

"Bear patiently, my heart - for you have suffered heavier things." - Homer

"Men are not worried by things, but by their ideas about things. When we meet with difficulties, become anxious or troubled, let us not blame others, but rather ourselves, that is, our ideas about things." - Epictetus

"It is not good for all your wishes to be fulfilled: through sickness you recognize the value of health, through evil the value of good, through hunger satisfaction, through exertion, the value of rest." - Heraclitus

"All I know is that I know nothing." -  Socrates

"A pleasant and happy life does not come from external things: man draws from within himself, as from a spring, pleasure and joy."  -  Plutarch



Howard Zinn, People's Historian

"A few years back, a man high up in the CIA named Ray Cline was asked if the CIA, by its surveillance of protest organizations in the United States, was violating the free speech provision of the First Amendment. He smiled and said: "It's only an Amendment."

"And when it was disclosed that the FBI was violating citizens' rights repeatedly, a high official of the FBI was asked if anybody in the FBI questioned the legality of what they were doing. He replied: "No, we never gave it a thought."

"We clearly cannot expect the Bill of Rights to be defended by government officials. So it will have to be defended by the people."

From the Zinn Reader,
"The Bill of Rights"
by Howard Zinn, 1991




If the content of this site is dear to your heart, we are around the camp fire together. If you are a stranger to this topic, it may be more like you are visiting a museum.  The guided tour of this museum of intergrative thinkers and activists is being prepared for future publication.  Until the guided tour is completed, please take the journey through this virtual musem on your own. 

When we say, "It happened" our mind becomes historian and we look back. We attend to that information stored in our mind as "back there."   Our society assigns historians to track it, lawyers to overseee the legal precidents established, accountants to track the business that "happened." We honor our societal "traditions" or we rebel against them.   A decadent society fails to pass on to the next generation the life enhancing aspects of the past. -
