The Option Institute and its teachers have had the honor to present programs (during the last four decades) that explore the attitudes and beliefs we have (and may want to change) and to help program participants find their own answers to questions about relationships, careers, family challenges and health issues. Our new program, 5 Days to Live: Defying a Terminal Cancer Prognosis, focuses on navigating significant health challenges and decision-making with greater ease, clarity, and clear purpose.
This new program, 5 Days to Live: Defying a Terminal Cancer Prognosis, was inspired by Bears Kaufman’s unusual journey with terminal cancer – the challenges, the choices, and the surprising outcome over the past 13 months without any medical intervention – no chemo or radiation. That journey, made in conjunction with his beloved wife, Samahria, was based on their personal choices resulting in changing almost every aspect of their lives.
The information we are providing will focus on attitudinal perspectives learned and insights gained during the Kaufman’s health and healing journey (using the core principles of the Option Process and the Son-Rise Program which informed many of their decision). However, our program is not intended to be a substitute for the professional medical and mental health advice, diagnosis or treatment provided by your own healthcare providers. We are not a medical or mental health facility, and we encourage all of you to consult with whatever healthcare professionals you deem helpful or necessary. After you learn more from healthcare professionals about what’s happening in your body and listen to their opinions, guidance, and suggestions they may provide you will then be in a position to make your decisions on what you want to do for yourself or your loved ones. Please do not disregard medical advice, delay seeking medical advice or start/stop taking medications because of information you may learn from us.
We do, however, encourage you to create beliefs and perspectives that will enable you to be comfortable (as best you can) and have more clarity when dealing with health concerns, health challenges and your healthcare providers.
I have read, understood, and agree with the foregoing.
