Charlie and Marion Cascio will be our featured chefs for the month of March.
Charlie has cooked throughout Europe, including Germany, France, Belgium, and Spain. He has worked as a personal private chef and has been head chef for numerous restaurants. Charlie has taught natural food cooking seminars to individuals, restaurants, and health professionals throughout Europe and the United States. He continues to cook for large conventions to develop natural health food products and recipes, and to teach courses on cooking, including cooking with raw foods.
Charlie worked as the head chef and kitchen manager for the Esalen Institute, in Big Sur, California from 1998 through 2004 and continues to work for Esalen as a consultant and instructor.
Marion comes from a family of cooks and has been involved with restaurants since childhood. She studied classical culinary arts in Germany for five years and has cooked in many famous restaurants and spas. Marion was a staff cook at Esalen for five years where she learned ethnic cooking techniques and fell in love with cooking from the garden. Cooking for Marion is a creative outlet, a place where she can be an artist of taste and texture.
Charlie and Marion live on the Northern California Coast on a self-sustaining organic farm where they raise vegetables, chickens, goats, and honeybees and make their own cheeses and olive oil.

This JoyShop is truly an opportunity to learn leading edge concepts to add to the health and vitality of your relationship--concepts such as How my partner behaves or what he/she does or does not do has no power to dictate my value, lovability or well-being; no one has the power to "make" you feel, and nothing ever shows up in our relationship that we have not "invited" in. Join us for a life-changing opportunity!

Notes From the Caretaker:
Dear Friends of Wilbur:
I always hesitate when I want to write something political to you. I imagine you are inundated, if not besieged, with political commentary. In addition, Wilbur is the ultimate place to get away from all that stuff and stress. Furthermore, it is impossible to make a political comment without offending someone and I sure do not want to offend one of my treasured guests.
However, never having been one to keep my mouth shut, here goes ... If I gave a lifelong pension and substantial other benefits to all employees after they had worked at Wilbur for two years I would very quickly be out of business. Can any of you out there give me some reasonable rationalization for our giving this kind of benefit package to our Congress?
Movie recommendation: King of Hearts starring Alan Bates.
Hot Tip 1: Check out the new Wilbur web site. And, you ain't seen nothing yet.
Hot Tip 2: My radio broadcast on Tuesday March 2nd 9PM on your computer at KZYX.org. You will hear four of the most courageous women you have ever encountered.
Wildflower season is coming soon to the Wilbur Hot Springs nearest you. Roll in flowers, immerse in medicine water and breathe.
Wishing you excellent health,
Richard Louis Miller, M.A., Ph.D.
Wilbur Caretaker since 1972
