eries. I worked on an avocado
and tropical fruit farm south of
Miami, several homesteads in
California, a chestnut farm, and
a family-farm in Oregon that sold
raw milk, eggs, and produce.
I ended my year of WWOOF-
ing with a sense of satisfaction.
I ate the freshest most delicious
and wholesome food of my life.
I stood on mountain peaks, un-
der the canopy of redwoods,
and hovered over coral reef. I
witnessed the spring wildflow-
ers of California and the glaciers
of Mt. Rainier. I experienced the
beauty and bounty of America's
countryside.
In addition to the outdoor
splendor, I found great treasures
within. During my WWOOF stay
in Massachusetts, I attended a si-
lent meditation retreat. For ten
days of Vipassana meditation, I
went on an inner journey and
emerged with a life-long tool for
putting my mind at ease.
The whole point of leaving
WWOOFing...
(Continued from page 14)
my teaching career was to pur-
sue greater happiness, and at the
time I thought this could be at-
tained by going someplace new.
To a degree, that turned out to
be true. I found a much-needed
dose of peace and quiet in the
farm life.
However, the meditation
helped me realize that most, if
not all of my happiness begins
from within. It's a truth that I've
heard many times throughout
my life, but it wasn't until I sat
down, closed my eyes, and ob-
served myself on a physical level
that I experienced the source of
my happiness and suffering.
Nowadays, when I hear the
Ohio motto, "the heart of it all,"
I like to think of it as a person-
al motto. No matter where I go
and who I am with, I am the one
who generates my own happi-
ness. Like you, I am the heart of
it all.

Farming Around the Country: An Or-
ganic Odyssey chronicles his year of
WWOOFing, couchsurfing, and Vipas-
sana meditation. he currently lives
and works in Eugene, Oregon.

Current Case: I had severe left heel pain 10 years ago after doctors at UCLA
removed a bone spur which grew back, causing more pain and swelling. After
2 treatments with Dr. Tong, the pain was 90% gone. He also eliminated my sleep
apnea. To this day, I have no heel pain and no longer
need my CPAP machine. I returned for treatments
a year ago after suffering a stroke. I was very weak
and fatigued. Now my energy is better than ever,
where I can drive up to 6 hours at a time.
I am so active that I'm losing weight!
