A WORKOUT FOR INNER STRENGTH

Deep Medicine is a program created by Dr. William Stewart that is designed to help you develop a personal plan for finding and using your own inner power to heal.

First, you’ll learn how to take your vital signs by asking yourself four key questions of self-assessment:

1. What am I thinking?

2. What am I feeling?

3. What am I doing about it?

4. How is it working for me?

Then, you’ll discover methods for accessing your intuitive inner wisdom and living purposefully. The practice of deep medicine will reward you with a life of conscious awareness and set you on the path toward greater physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.

“Deep Medicine” Dr. William Stewart

Deep Medicine describes what we can do to achieve a healthier lifestyle by creating balance. Dr. William Stewart, Director of The Institute of Health and Healing at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, discusses the steps we need to take to create life sustaining choices that will increase our health, well-being and achieve the goals we want to reach in our lives.

Stephen Prothero, Boston University professor and author of the new book “God Is Not One,” spoke to Stephen Colbert last night about his book and why the eight religions that run the world have a lot of important differences that we shouldn’t overlook as much as we do. “I wrote the book because religions are horribly misunderstood,” he said. “We have these atheists that are saying that all the religions are the same and bad, and we have these multiculturalists that are saying that all the religions are the same and good.” Prothero sets out to illuminate the differences in his book, because, he said, “religions are not different paths going up the same mountain” — they have different goals and different concerns.

Prothero was careful not to show any personal prejudices in the interview, even when Colbert tried to get him to say which religion was best. When pressed, though, he did say that he believes that Islam is “winning” out of all the religions. “Christianity is losing market share,” he said. Colbert responded: “Jesus loves to run up the odds.”
