A Glimpse of Heaven by Dr. Glen Hepker

 

Today I have the pleasure of interviewing awesome Dr. Hepker, author of A Glimpse Of Heaven. He has an amazing philosophy for your health and wellbeing. I think that we all can benefit, I know I can use some tips, lol.

Dr. Hepker I’m thrilled to have you visiting my blog. Would you please tell us a little bit about yourself, how you decided to enter the world of writing, what does your family think of your writing, and where do you get your ideas, etc. 

 

During all of my adult life, I have always planned on writing this and at least two other books which complement, e.g., Volume I, II, and III. I had always hoped that in my 50’s, I would be mature enough to do a good job in writing it, though most of my life, I have outlined the books. My wife has been wonderfully supportive all throughout, even now, with regard to my marketing responsibilities. Humbly and respectfully, I am quite fortunate on many fronts. With regard to where I got the ideas for the book, I have doctorate degrees in psychology and health/wellness arts, and 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 (i.e., which are inclusive of the vast ages-old health/wellness Bright Beautiful School of Though/Ming Chia intrinsic to 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. 

Dr. Glen, you have impressive qualifications and background.  Can you tell us a little about your book? 

 

Based on the age-old Bright Beautiful School of Thought, my writing 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.  It 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 – “life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.”

 

What is your writing process? 

I have taught these arts for decades, so it is not difficult to put the information down. I had a basic outline of the book, chapter by chapter, both written down, and in my mind. The philosophy beautifully connect dots by its very nature. I simply began writing accordingly.

 

What was the hardest part for you working on your book?

 

Aside from my duties in writing and marketing it, I already work about 40 hours per week. Additionally, I am already fortunate to be a quite happy fellow, so overall, the most difficult thing is to set forth the time to do these  things.

 

What influenced or inspired you to write?

 

I enjoy substantive faith in the beauty and meaningfulness of its philosophy…and, humbly and respectfully, I believe that setting it forth in this book is my attempt at making the world a better place. 

 

Was there a scene that you didn’t add or remove in your finished work?

 

No,can’t think of any. 

 

Do you already know what to do next? 

 

Yes, Volume II, will be A Glimpse of Heaven: Volume II – Conversations on the Philosophy of True Health. It will be more contextual, vs. the initial book being more purely philosophical – which set forth the foundation of the Bright School theory.

Dr. Glen Hepker Press Release  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 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 – “life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” 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.

One thought on “A Glimpse of Heaven by Dr. Glen Hepker

  1. The average person is walking around with anywhere from six to twelve pounds of undigested material fermenting in their intestines and colon. Digestion is a process of oxidation. That is why we give off heat, carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide. Just like a car engine when there is improper oxidation some of the fuel gets left behind as a residue. In the digestive tract, there is a similar build up of partially digested gunk. In an automobile when you add oxygen to the fuel mixture the built up materials are burned off or oxidized. `
