In Memoriam, Dr. Lee Lipsenthal

September 22nd, 2011 by Nick Jacobs Leave a reply »

We have not even to risk the adventure alone; for the heroes of all time have gone before us. The labyrinth is thoroughly known. We have only to follow the thread of the hero path. And where we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find…God.
—Joseph Campbell

Such has been my experience with Dr. Lee Lipsenthal. Lee was the co-founder of Finding Balance in a Medical Life, a recognized leader, teacher and pioneer in the field of provider wellness. He was internationally known for his research work with my friend Dr. Dean Ornish in preventive cardiology. He was also well known in the field of Integrative Health, and past president of the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine.

Lee Lipsenthal, MD - Enjoy Every Sandwich - Nick Jacobs, FACHE - HealingHospitals.comAlthough Lee’s entrance into medicine was traditional, (a BS from George Washington University, his MD from Howard and an internship and residency at the Medical College of Pennsylvania), he started on his truth path of healing as a resident, where he developed the first multi-disciplinary cardiac rehabilitation program in Philadelphia, a plan that addressed stress reduction, exercise and nutrition teaching.

He then went on to become the Director of Cardiovascular Services for the Benjamin Franklin Clinic in Philadelphia, as well as a staff physician at The Pennsylvania Hospital. In this role, he developed treatment programs for patients with heart disease or risk of heart disease; he developed corporate wellness programs for national companies, and consulted on patients with cholesterol disorders at the hospital.

But who was the real Lee Lipsenthal? Lee was a hero who embraced the adventure and led the way for us all. In an incredibly selfless and positive way, like all heroes, Lee “lost himself and then gave himself to all of us.” He mastered the transformation of consciousness, and taught us all to look deeply inside ourselves. Lee’s life and teaching was always about the powers of life and their modulations through the action of man, and Lee’s actions led us all to a better place; a place of healing, love and understanding. He did this through his words, his music, his soul and his heart.

Lee Lipsenthal, MDLee captured the imaginations of many of us and gently drew us into his circle of positive influence where he provided a psychological center for our lives, he fed our individual and collective souls and he helped us to experience life at its fullest. He often took us to the edge of self-discovery, but he always took us to a place of peace and love. He could literally show us the “belly of the whale,” and then bring us back to a deeper understanding of our lives, our abilities and our spirits.

In many ways he helped us transcend our humanities so that we all could emerge into a deeper reality of serving our fellow man. He taught us that, as a person, if we don’t listen to the demands of our own spiritual and interior life, we will drift dangerously off-center.

Lee was our center. Lee was our friend, our mentor, our spiritual guide and our hero.

Lee passed this week, surrounded by his wonderful, loving family, and our hearts are breaking from the loss, but also reveling in the joy of having known him, having shared him and always loving him.

Learn more about Lee’s extraordinary journey, and his wonderful book, Enjoy Every Sandwich below.

You will be inspired and moved.

    Qu’elle soit théâtrale, télévisée, cinématographique, radiophonique, narrative, voire mnésique et imaginaire, comme le rappelle Angelos Triantafyllou19 dans à propos d’Imagination morte imaginez (1965), l’image de Beckett subit donc un traitement nike blazer leopard femme pas cher particulier. Comme le souligne Deleuze20, ce processus est destiné, d’une part, à capter tout le possible, mais, de l’autre, à rester irrémédiablement inachevé puisque assujetti à une dérive du sens qui l’oblige à revenir sans cesse sur lui même. De l’autre, creuser ce vide permet à Beckett de libérer le sens de toute constriction de forme, en rendant visible ce qui est normalement au delà des limites de la représentation: la présence à l’uvre d’un écrire, d’un parler, d’un voir et d’un gesticuler qui cherchent à s’inscrire dans le corps de la page, de la scène, de l’écran, aussi bien que dans le corps des sujets beckettiens.Even the most unfashionable know that black is a slimming color, but Stuff Magazine’s former fashion director, Kelly Rae, says that all dark colors and even whites can minimize your size. “Blander colors won’t draw attention to your outfit, and that’s a good thing.
