Island of Mallorca - Spain

Island of Mallorca in Spain is beautiful. I highly recommend it to everyone who plans to visit Spain.
Most tourists come here for the beaches and never visit the mountains. But I came to the mountain as it is secluded and beautiful. I prefer a farm to a beachfront resort anytime!
Noone is here around me. And I love the solitude here.
I fell in love with this 750 years old farm.
Pomegranate, figs, olives, oranges, lemon, grapes, & banana. Most of my favorite trees are in this farm.
And everyone speaks Spanish, so I kind of feel like I am in Panama! They all understand, uno cerveza por favor! 



Yoga in Mallorca

I woke up today with the sound of roosters and surrounded by beautiful fragrance of orange blossoms.
I did my morning Yoga and meditation surrounded by orange trees.
I am blessed to experience so much beauty here in Island of Mallorca. I love farms, they remind me of my childhood where I spent most summers on my grandparents farm in the village of Foshtom in Gilan.

My backyard!

My backyard!

Congratulations Prime mInister!

Congratulations to my friend, Right Honorable Justin Trudeau, to win the Canada 2019 federal election to remain the prime minister of Canada.
Time to celebrate. Cheers Canada!

Power, Peace, beauty

Exercise gives you power.
Power gives you peace.
Peace brings beauty to your life.

Thank you God!

God has given me life and I am grateful for it. I plan to enjoy every second of it while it lasts!  


Dogs!

Dogs, the best teachers of unconditional love! 



It is my BIRTHDAY today! And I have a wish!



My wish is for you to click on the link below and add your name to a petition started by College of Registered Manual Osteopaths (Canada):
http://chng.it/MKMBxxkKd5
It is time for Canadian health insurers to add osteopathy to TELUS Health eClaims instead of requesting paper claim forms.
Insurance direct billing helps the mother earth by eliminating paper usage and reducing waste. It also simplifies the process for patients, manual osteopaths and insurers. Everyone benefits from changing paper claims to eClaims.
By signing this petition you would do your part in saving trees. As a Southern Cherokee man I am deeply committed to protecting the mother earth.
Thank you for your help. I am grateful.
By the way the online company that was used to make this petition will ask you for $14 donation. Do not pay the $14. That is not for me, CRMO, osteopathy or in anyway to save trees. That $14 just goes to the company that hosts the petition. It is way too much in my opinion. Do not pay it! It is not mandatory.

Mallorca

Did you know Island of Mallorca and most parts of Spain were ruled by Muslims for 800 years?

The Muslims brought the orange trees to the island of Mallorca. Later when Christians took the island, they divided it between Knights who helped them win the war against Muslims. Some knights kept the lands but most sold them.
The farm house in this photo where I am staying belonged to a family that purchased the land over 750 years ago from a family of a knight.
In 750 years, this agroturismo farm house and the land were passed to the first born son of the family. Only once in 750 years the family had no son, so it was passed to a daughter.
This is history. I get goosebumps everytime I touch the wall of this house. There is so much history here.

Congratulations Judy!

Congratulations to College of Registered Manual Osteopaths for establishing the FIRST EVER Insurance Relations Committee for a national osteopathic association.
Insurance fraud costs everyone. A mandate of this committee is to prevent insurance fraud and improper billing practices. All members of this association MUST take a mandatory course on Insurance Fraud prevention.
This is such a progressive initiative this association has taken. And the chairperson of this committee is registered manual osteopath Judy Tanko, DOMP, RMO, one of my top students at National Academy of Osteopathy!

Bye Bye Canada, Hello Spain

My time in Canada is coming to an end. Time to visit Spain. I am so excited about this trip! I have to visit Madrid for some work related to National University of Medical Sciences (Spain). But after work I will be visiting Mallorca Island to stay in this mountaintop orange grove house for a few days.
This is the first time I visit Mallorca Island and also the first time I stay in a house surrounded by orange trees!
This house is so romantic. The views are amazing. I am grateful to God for helping me fulfill yet another dream.

My Cedula is here!

I am a Southern Cherokee Iranian/Canadian/Panamanian man with a Cedula!
My housekeeper just emailed me a copy of my Cedula that just arrived at home. Cedula is a national identification card, similar to Social Insurance Number (in Canada) or Social Security Number (in US).
With my cedula I can now work for National University of Medical Sciences (Panama) that I registered in 2018 and pay personal income tax to Panama. Contrary to what people think, Panamanians do pay business and personal income tax for income generated inside Panama.
Personal income tax rate in Panama is 15% for annual income of $50,000 (US) or less, and 25% for annual income above $50,000 (US). Corporate income tax in Panama is 25% for income generated in Panama. Income generated outside Panama is tax free.

Email from Prime Minister of Canada!

I am honoured to receive a Thanksgiving email from Right Honorable Justin Trudeau, the Prime Minister of Canada.
I also wish the prime minister, his family, and everyone else a great thanksgiving.


Forest Bathing

One reason I rarely get sick is because I surround myself by trees. Science has proven that time near trees can make you happier, more creative, and less stressed. Trees strengthen the immune system, reduce blood pressure, increase energy, and increase ability to focus.
I live in Panama surrounded by trees, and wherever I travel I make sure to walk inside a park everyday.

Trees produce phytocides as a defense mechanism. Phytocides improve your immune system.
If you get sick often, if you have a weak immune system, if you are stressed, if you want to become healthier, you should move out of large cities and live near nature. If you cannot, at least spent an hour a day in a park. You will be glad you did!

For so long I wanted to have a clinic in Northwest Territories and finally it is done! We now have 316 clinics in 30 countries and our clinic # 307 is located in Yellowknife, NT.

Northwest Territories is the only province/territory that Canada has given full autonomy to be governed by Indigenous Peoples and I am so proud that my fellow brothers and sisters now govern the third largest province/territory in Canada!

I am a Southern Cherokee Nation & the Red Fire People tribe member. I am also of Gilaki race in Iran, the Indigenous population of Northern Iran. Being a part of Indigenous Peoples in Canada is an honour for me. To have now a clinic within an area of Canada governed by Indigenous Peoples is an honour. I am humbled by all the love the Creator has bestowed upon me. God has blessed me with a wonderful beautiful life.

Time to celebrate!   


Salud!    



Thank you Canada!

Thanks Dasha for all your help

Tonight, I and Dr. Dasha Veprjitska, DOMP, BSc (Ost), MBA, DO (Spain) (the National Academy of Osteopathy manager) entertained a number of people for dinner/business meeting.
We had a great time. What a beautiful night it was. Quebec has such delicious French food. And I am so happy to have staff like Dasha with me.


Porsche Racing in Mont Tremblant

Yesterday was the Porsche GT3 Cup Canada in Circuit Mont Tremblant. From 10 to 15 years ago I had two Porsches and used to race with one of them.
Now as I passed 50 years of age my racing days are over! Now I drive in the right lane about 10 KM/hr below the speed limit!

A racing Porsche used to give me the adrenaline rush. Now doing the Luge at Mont Tremblant village gives me the same rush!      




Palm Trees in Quebec?

I was surprised to see a bunch of palm trees in the Mont Tremblant village. They look so beautiful even though they are fake.
Everyone seems to love palm trees. I am blessed to live in Panama where Palm trees grow naturally. It was always my dream to be near palm trees.


Boating on Lake Tremblant

I like Lac Tremblant. It is so pure and clean and that is because its residents who own multi-million dollar waterfront houses took the time to ensure only its residents can have boats on the lake. This kept the water so pure that the cottages use it as drinking water. It also ensures privacy for the owners.

I saw houses that are from $25 to $45 million dollars! One of them belonged to a relative of ex-king of Iran! I was so surprised to see a fellow Iranian on this lake!
The name Tremblant comes from an Algonquin Nation that first inhabited this area. It has to do with a resting old spirit and that it starts to tremble (Tremblant in French) when human beings abuse the land.
