Through narrative and photography, authors Heather Hebert and Chase Ewald feature the architecture, style, and design of 17 homes—plus 4 unique auxiliary structures—in California’s wine country. This virtual tour documents a native, terroir-derived style that has evolved since the days when the region looked to European chateaux for inspiration.

    When dermatologist Peter Wisch learned how to channel higher wisdom, he wondered whether that ability would be able to help his patients as well. Both he and many of his patients had longed to find answers to mystifying questions regarding more profound reasons for illness. Remarkably, what he found proved to be both surprising and revelatory. The knowledge he discovered was quite different, albeit not invalidating, than what he had been taught in medical school. Beneath all the biological, chemical, physiological, and other physical causes for disease exist emotional, mental, and spiritual ones. The messages he received not only resonated with patients, but its advice when passed along and heeded, seemed to help heal their conditions. What began as innocent curiosity revolutionized his way of understanding and treating illness that does not discredit the field of medicine, but instead holds great potential to enhance it. In Revelations on Healing, Dr. Wisch describes how you too can take control of your own health by applying fundamental metaphysical tenets to awaken the healer within you and manifest your own well-being.
