This multidiscipline and multidimensional conversation explores science and spirituality in ways you may never have experienced prior, yet will sense the resonance of its sound wisdom shared.

Victor begins by relating to a conversation he had with his mother in junior high. He mentions reading Krishnamurti and Kahlil Gibran and even Ouspensky and those perhaps being familiar to our audience. He had questions about time and free will as a result.

Victor reflects on the Buddhist notion of finding your song and singing it. What is your song and are you singing it? Do you have ‘training bias’ in your profession?

His breadth of scope in the allopathic and alternative healing modalities is obvious as he shares his journey to understanding the larger scope of health and well-being. It is well worth your attention and exploration as well. He offers many references to materials you can research as well. Do we really need validation from others to do what we can do if it works?

Victor’s walks us through his own process of how he became more self-aware and his reflection on how the process unfolded and wisdom garnered is well expressed with empathic resonance for many. He shares a declaration of world citizenship you’ll find refreshing and transformative, noting the humility from which it came.

He offers greater understanding for others in exploring the Blue Zones Project for community building. Noting his time at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, Victor shares that he feels it’s more important to have a direct experience rather than acquiring knowledge.

Zen brings up a previous interview with Dr. Ervin Laszlo ( regarding the Higher Self and the physical embodiment of the prevailing consciousness. There is a great discussion about the oneness of being going through various vibrational levels.
