A Glimpse of Heaven: The Philosophy of True Health 

Dr. Glen Hepker explores the tools for promotion of True Health. Based on the age-old Bright Beautiful School of Thought, Hepker explains how the quality of our lives will be greatly enhanced once we learn to raise ourselves up by taking True Responsibility for our own health and wellbeing. Hepker guides readers through the tenets of the Bright School theory and assists the reader in realizing this level of True Health. Most especially, this health and wellness philosophy is distinguished by its remarkable, thought-provoking, and ingenious notion of coalescing ethics and morality and deeply-rooted insight/objectivity skills with conceptions of health and wellness, i.e., True Health and/or True Health through True Responsibility. It sets forth that one cannot realize True Health without the necessary and truly skilled attributes of deep insight, morality, clear objectivity – learning the True Skill of being able to look within and without (into one’s internal and external environments), without fear, without preset patterns of thinking. 
It sets forth the importance of True 
Honesty – gathering a level of objective insight that introduces one to the notion of not needing anything to hide behind. Such healthful clarity is a significant aspect of what he describes as ‘glimpses of heaven’…loving bioelectric spine-tingling (chi) feelings/realizations (and nurturing the True Skill of doing so AT WILL). It sets forth the notion that one of the greatest gifts of all is that there is always room for improvement, versus the living death of stagnant plateaus. It is a serious, yet loving, compassionate, altruistic, and empathetic work. It is also lovingly passive in its tone (voice and pretense). It is not self-promoting, self-aggrandizing, or evangelistic. It is a beautiful, superbly benevolent, and exceedingly well-thought-out health and wellness way-of-life (which is humbly devoid of legalistic or religious tendencies or bias). Its voice is untarnished – it never competes or sells. 

My Thoughts:

“A Glimpse of Heaven: The Philosophy of True Health” by Glen Hepker is a very well written and highly intelligent and spiritual book. The core message is that the right attitude towards life and its many aspects will have the biggest influence on the state of your health. 

In brilliant and very insightful chapters Hepker describes excellently some lesser known principles of thought and mind that for this reader were either eye-opening or good reminders on how to live your life best and have your health benefit, too.
The connection between mind and health are well explained and make a lot of sense. I have prior knowledge of Taoist teachings and found myself very at home in this book, I felt inspired, enlightened and my awareness raised.

Thought-provoking and hopefully helping to change perspectives this is a well rounded and accomplished philosophical piece of art that I shall refer to again many times again. 


Glen Hepker has doctorate degrees in psychology and health/wellness arts, and he is a part-time individual and marital counselor, a wellness coach, and a master instructor of tai chi chuan, chi kung, kung fu, and associated health/wellness arts (which are intrinsically inclusive of the empathetic and benevolent health and wellness philosophy found in his writing) at Mason City Wellness Center LLC/Mason City Tai Chi~Chi Kung~Kung Fu LLC, Mason City, IA USA.
