 the ancient Greek god of healing.

This detail from his temple in Epidaurus reminds us that the Hippocratic tradition,
and thus western scientific medicine, evolved from a spiritual/ psychological concept of healing.





The partially restored Tholos at the Epidaurus site may have been the site of a sacred well.
It is a featured site in the author’s
Waiting at Epidauros, a mystery novella about healing,
 in verse
(Poetic Works volume two), set in Greece and the United States.

The idea of the internet as an "academic grove" or "temple site" seems very far-fetched
to our ordinary frame of mind. But that is exactly the point of this site !!


Here is a site for walking together toward the creation of a new frame of mind.


Like Hippocrates in these paired images, here we hope to look backward towards our roots

even as we look forward toward an even greater era of healing discovery.
