Spiritual Science: The Search for Truth “Pure Science is a true religion without any dogma. Pure Science requires great dedication and faith in the processes, while remaining objective to the outcome. This is the process of seeking truth and striving to understand it once found.
Pure Science requires us to look outside of what we believe is true, to find and prove what is really true. This inquiry can only be successful when done with significant amounts of curiosity, skepticism and inspiration. Pure Science and True Spirituality are ultimately one and the same; the methodical pursuit of truth, through, and in spite of, the knowledge we currently possess.”

The Flying Samaritans is a non-sectarian, non-profit organization of small clinics throughout Baja California, which provide free education, medical, dental, and vision services to rural populations who would otherwise have no access to care. Medical students play a vital role in this model by expanding the patient capacity of the limited physicians available. All proceeds will go directly to offsetting the ~$250 transportation and lodging costs for each medical student traveling to volunteer at monthly clinics serving migrant workers in the small, isolated, agricultural town of Los Pinos, BC, Mexico, 150 miles south of Ensenada on the Pacific coast.

don Miguel Ruiz, MD is an inspirational speaker, teacher, philosopher, and author of the New York Times Best Seller “The Four Agreements” which sold over 4 million copies worldwide. He practiced neurosurgery in Tijuana for several years, but after a near-death car accident, he realized the the importance of seeking healing beyond injuries to the physical brain and began addressing ailments of the human mind and soul. With guidance from his shaman mother, he explored this spiritual realm and ultimately discovered his own truth and philosophy. Since then he has pursued spreading his inspirational message of common sense, honesty, love, and inner peace through his publications, speaking engagements, and interactive online media. Click this link for more information:
