I write, speak, invest, network, and question to stimulate fruitful conversation. Let's talk about human flourishing! It begins with freedom. Holy leisure is the key to human being, freedom and generativity. Please join me in the adventure of realizing Christ!
After many years of kitchen table conversation, all my thoughts on ‘alternative’ healing modalities are in one place! I can’t remain quiet while truly amazing remedies are dismissed out of hand by Catholics who call them ‘unscientific’. I can’t stay silent when an over-reliance on the allopathic, Western medical model is daily undermining the health of my brothers and sisters in Christ. On the other hand, I’m unwilling to give unquestioning assent to anything that calls itself ‘healing.’ Attachment to the perfection of physical health and/or fear of the natural risks of being alive also undermine the health of the Body of Christ. There must be a narrow way, where Christ can accompany us on a journey to appropriate what we can, discern what is helpful and what is harmful, and guide those around us to a balanced concern for health, with a balanced interest in the many modes of approach to health available in our interconnected world.
My dream for this book is that it would become the focus of conversation among Catholics and other Christians with interest in the spaces of health, medical autonomy, biohacking, nutrition, holistic wellness, and other related topics.
