the practice, the philosophy and the language of healing and alternative medicine for ourselves, for our communities, and for our nations

So our present negativity about our nations and the way they work is not an accident?

No. It is a consequence of our detachment. We can only focus on the result, and the result is always disappointing. But the process never is. The process is in fact the reward. You can never create the perfect house. But the act of building it, is in itself a state of perfection.


But the individual who plunges into the very depths of unmitigated ridicule and contempt as our nation-states have done, would have entered into the realms of paranoia and melancholy; yes and into the realms of suicide itself.


It is stress. our nations suffer from it, and that is a fact of our modern post-industrial lives.

What has been said about
Richard Dell’s book:

‘Richard Dell has written a thoughtful and thought-provoking book. In essence this is a political manifesto with a robustly spiritual core. He posits a newer, different way in which to arrange ourselves and our institutions.’

‘A deeply fascinating appraisal of the social and political ills of the western world and the ways in which they could be healed.’
