Help Luke Heal from Cancer

Our founder and friend, Luke, was diagnosed in February 2020 with Prostate Cancer. Further imagining showed it to be one large tumor and several smaller satellite tumors attached to different organs. Luke made a challenging decision to pursue alternative treatment methods which are not supported by the AMA and standard medical insurances. The various alternative treatments are all available at a hospital in Mexico. Luke is prepared to seek treatment in Mexico for a 3-week intensive program to eliminate the cancer. 

On June 28th Luke will fly to a hospital in Mexico (CHIPSA) where they have been treating cancer for 37 years with alternative methods. Their program includes the following:

CHIPSA Hospital utilizes intravenous Vitamin CK3 as part of our integrative approach to treating cancer and autoimmune disease. Here are some of the protocols they utilize:

  • Coley’s Fluid
  • Vallovax
  • Apatone (IV & Oral Vitamin CK3)
  • Insulin Potentiate Therapy
  • Gerson Therapy
  • Cryoablation
  • Hyperbaric Oxygen

The total cost of travel, treatment, and the stay will be around $35,000. Luke has reserved a spot at the hospital for June 29-July 18th. He is able to come up with $15,000. He is humbly seeking $20,000 to meet his financial needs.

Luke is a visionary pioneer in many fields of human endeavor – from learning to understand the human psyche, sociology, as well as practical solutions to some of the world’s pressing problems of resource conservation, environmental preservation, and the development of renewable energy systems for communities. 

Anyone who knows Luke knows the magic that happens in and because of his Presence.  He lives with an abundance of trust and acceptance knowing in his heart of hearts that what will be will be.  While there is acceptance in Luke’s diagnosis, we are not ready to let this powerfully influential being be taken from us and the community at large! There is so much life and many more offerings that Luke has left to share with the world. The world is a better place because he is in it.

We have less than 4 weeks to raise these funds to support our Beloved friend and brother who is a gift to all who value love, community, consciousness, Truth, generosity, protecting and honoring the sacredness of humanity, and our dearly Beloved Mother Earth and the Universe. 

DETAILED BIO ON LUKE:

Luke founded an Intentional Community in the Blue Ridge Mountains (Anahata Bio-Community) and a revolutionary education center (Anahata Education Center) which focus on personal growth, interpersonal relationship, new ways of accessing and processing our unconscious contents, and understanding human behavior and motivation. Another aspect of these centers is the study and application of renewable energy, symbiotic systems and permaculture, as well as other evolutionary modalities and technologies.

Because of his interest in a different approach to education he co-founded Blue Mountain School in the early 80s, and is a strong supporter, both with his time and his money. He serves on the Blue Mountain School Board of Trustees.

From 1979 – 1990 Luke was also the leader in several renewable energy projects which produced ethanol, methane, feed and fertilizer from agricultural and industrial wastes.

In 1991, Luke founded Pragmatic Environmental Solutions Company [PESCO]. As president of PESCO he has led it from modest beginnings to a company with international recognition. PESCO systems are recycling everything from acetone to xylene and motor oil, in locations ranging from Australia to Virginia.

In 2007, PESCO merged with its long term fabrication and engineering partners, Beam Engineering, Pvt. Ltd. to form a new company, PESCO-BEAM Environmental Solutions. PESCO-BEAM continues to develop state of the art environmental equipment and systems.

Luke also served as Board Member and Vice President of Sustain Floyd Organization (SFO – http://www.sustainfloyd.org) which focuses on creating a sustainable resilient Floyd Community, through the development of local industries which will provide markets for local crops, and creating value added industries for local raw materials, resources and talent.

UPDATE FROM OUR BROTHER LUKE~

Let me one more time express my deep gratitude and appreciation for the amazing love and support coming my way, in huge heart-warming waves. May all of us have such sweet experiences at least once in our lives.

Since my initial diagnosis and follow-up MRI I have been doing lots of big and little things to fight the cancer in my body, and I feel that I am making some progress. The treatments include vitamins, immune boosters, complete diet change, raw juices, as well as several types of energy healing. I am still experiencing an eb and flow of appetite and energy, mostly related to the various remedies I am using, and I am getting used to that. When I am in an upswing I feel more energy than I have in months, and in general my body feels very good. I am becoming more and more sensitive to energetic flow, so I am now sensing my own and other peoples emotions as though it were the weather. That is pretty interesting, and in the long run very positive, though I really have to pay attention not to let things pull me off center. Other than that, my life continues to be an amazing series of blessings. I am so grateful for my beautiful wife who is there for me all the way, as well as my wonderful friends, Danielle and Mars, who kicked this off, and all those dear friends who have sent support in many different ways.

Sending love to all of you, Luke

Activate Your Intuitive Superpower

Wednesday, Nov 20th 7-8:30pm
Wouldn’t it be great if you knew precisely where to plant the garden and when? Or perhaps you wonder about which opportunities to say yes to, and which to say no? How about what people you should have around you in your inner circle and which to avoid? Maybe you’d love the ability to determine the best supplement that can actually help improve your level of wellness vs. which ones are just money down the drain? Maybe you want to consciously manifest something and you need to be able to pick up the signals the Universe is sending your way in order to make it happen. All of that and vastly more are no big deal when utilizing powerful intuition.

Activate, fine-tune and enhance your intuition the Dancing Dolphin Way with Bestselling Author D. Takara Shelor. In this 4-session course she will guide you through exercises and activations to enhance your inner clarity and wisdom, hone your intuitive skills, connect you more fully with inner guides, angels and nature spirits, and develop a working relationship with intuitive tools such as pendulums, crystals, and divination cards. As always, Takara takes you on deep dives into meditation & personal transformation. $11 per class.
