Rebbe Gabriel Cousens, M.D., M.D. (H), Dip. American Board of Holistic Medicine, Dip. Ayurveda, who functions as a healer, a scientist, and a spiritual teacher, is committed to sharing a way of life that heals, uplifts, and makes peace with the individual, the family, the community, all cultures, the living planet, and our relationship with God.
While in medical school he recognized healing involves the whole society and the whole person, of which diet is important. One of his missions since the late 1970's is to learn and share how to live and eat in a way that supports maximal spiritual unfoldment and creating peace by being peace, which includes a vegan way of life.
The books, retreats, workshop experiences, and products are designed to continually inspire this transformation on every level. "Food is a love note from God. It's letters are written by the rays of the sun. It says, 'I love you and I will take care of you with the gifts of my Earth.'" - Rebbe Gabriel Cousens, M.D., M.D.(H), Dip. Ayurveda, Dip. American Board of Holistic Medicine, Founder-Director of the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center.
