001. at capegazette.villagesoup.com, we're told in "Naturopath Kim Furtado to Offer Spiritual Well-Being Retreat April 30" (2016-04-10)(2016 archived):
"Kim Furtado, ND, will share her 21 years of naturopathic wisdom [...] at a one-day retreat [...]":
ah, the religious wordage...
"a supportive, intimate group setting with tranquil surroundings will facilitate meaningful personal enrichment. Participants will explore how biochemistry can stall or propel [...]":
ah, this doesn't sound very spiritual. This sounds MUNDANE.
"the cost is $95 for the retreat and nutritious lunch [...] for more information and to register in advance, go to www.drkimfurtado.com [...]";
of course, if you were a cynic, you might say: this ND can say ANYTHING and since that anything is unknowable -- the spiritual, whatever that is -- her certainty is a ruse. "Naturopathic wisdom", I do not defer. Is naturopathy "science-based natural medicine" or religiosity/supernaturalism? It can't be both.
