The Sun Interview

An Interview With Patricia Sun

The most powerful way to get someone to come towards you is to step back. Not to punish, and not to punch your way out of the paper bag. Sit back in the bag. Because you’re not going to get it any faster by punching your way out, you’ll get it less fast. Period. It doesn’t work, for one. And if you keep doing it, a part of you is just running on the tape that doesn’t work, and it’s like walking into a wall.

An Interview With Steve Rizzuto

Watching 42-year-old Steve Rizzuto move makes me feel like a shuffling hunchback, though I’m 15 years younger than him. He is a certified practitioner and teacher of Swedish Massage and Touch for Health in Chapel Hill. In addition, Steve has an undergraduate degree in Business Administration and a masters in Education.

An Interview With Farra Allen And Libby Outlaw

Farra Allen and Libby Outlaw have been teaching and practicing what they call Ollistic Bodywork for several years. They’ve combined several techniques — Lomi Bodywork, acupressure, meditation, and Tantric and Hatha Yoga — into “a wholistic model geared to increase awareness by releasing deep-muscle tension and emotional repressions.”

Getting Unstressed

An Interview With Ken Pelletier

This interview originally appeared in Medical Self-Care magazine, one of the best publications on health in this country. Tom Ferguson, a graduate of Yale Medical School started the magazine in 1976 as an “access to medical tools.” It’s a bridge between the medical establishment and the more unorthodox approaches of the wholistic health movement. In-depth articles and interviews, along with concise and readable book reviews make this a magazine well worth reading.

An Interview With Warren Barrett

The name “Storybook Farm” came when I was reading to my kids one night, and in the middle of this book, there was a picture of this farm. When I saw the picture I said, “Oh wow, how beautiful! One of these days, we’re going to have a place just like that. A storybook farm.”

An Interview With Peter Caddy

I think all the institutions need to undergo a change, as we move into the New Age. I think there needs to be commitment in two souls coming together, and taking responsibility, taking responsibility for their family. So commitment is a sense of responsibility.

An Interview With Robert Bly

The sixties seem to have been a disaster period as far as relationships between men and women go, though one thing did come forward. Women began to feel much more confidence in their own energies. I think women realized that their consciousness had not produced the war, and so they became more confident, and I think their confidence in female energy helped many males — I was one of them — to feel more confidence in my own feminine side.

The Bach Flower Remedies

An Interview With Larry Miller

The flower remedies, if they are administered, then flood the physical body with the needed virtue washing out the fault causing the harm and that in turn raises the vibration of our beings, of our natures and puts us in touch with our soul or our divinity or our higher self, in which the presence of disease has to fall away.

Another View

An Interview With Tony Waldrop

I never thought I was much more talented than other people, until I quit. I think now maybe I did have quite a bit of talent. I think the biggest thing that helped me while I was running is the fact that I am just extremely determined.

Running: Face To Face With Yourself

An Interview With Peter And Martha Klopfer

Everybody can win in a race, you see, if they’ve all improved their personal records. You’ve seen this in track meet after track meet, there’s the guy who comes in last but it’s a personal record for him. He gets as much applause from his buddies as the guy who won.
