Dear Friends of Wilbur:

In offering you the Wilbur Health Experience, physical and emotional safety reign as our highest health priorities. After that comes dignity and respect for all and cleanliness.

When we feel safe, emotionally and physically, we are able to self balance. Self balancing is a critical component to enjoying excellent health.

When you enter the Wilbur Health Experience you enter an environment in which every person treats every other person with dignity and respect. The depth of this respect creates an emotional atmosphere which each of us sense.

Each of us is physically safe during the Wilbur Health Experience because Wilbur is geographically shielded being relatively remote with only one entrance road, because of the work of the staff who care, and because of the nature of each of you who attend the Wilbur Health Experience.

When we feel safe, emotionally and physically, our immune systems are able to utilize the energy otherwise used for protection..

Self-balancing within a more Fully Enabled Immune System, allows for powerful healing of the Self.

As part of the Wilbur Health Experience registered guests are allowed to use the 1570 acre private Wilbur Springs Nature Preserve which is down the road past the Wilbur vehicle parking area. In the Nature Preserve registered Wilbur guests walk, hike, bike, jog, run, sit, picnic, think, and amble in the pristine valley and rolling hills.

At a recent Wilbur staff meeting we discussed an aspect of physical safety in the Nature Preserve.
How do we protect people who go into the Nature Preserve alone and have an incident, such as a twisted ankle, which requires help?

One idea, for additional safety, is to limit entrance to the Nature Preserve to groups of 2 or more people. Ergo, if one person needs help they will have 1 or more buddies to help them. The problem with this tactic is that it deprives individual people of a time of solitude in an activity they enjoy.

After much discussion, for our first step, we agreed to contact Frontier Communications,  our telephone service provider, and request they install 2 telephones in the valley. We recognize that this is a preliminary step which must be followed by others.
Your safety and dignity are our highest priorities.

Say hello next time you are here for the Wilbur Health Experience.

Until then I wish you a powerful immune system and abundant self balance.

Caretakers, Wilbur Hot Springs

Dear Friends of Wilbur:

As the new General Managers of Wilbur Hot Springs we had our first meeting with all the staff yesterday. Two of our parents are visiting us, and helping us move in, and Mom cooked a traditional Italian dinner for everyone.

After sharing our thoughts about this beautiful natural world available to all who visit, Jerry gave an inspiring talk reminding us how fortunate we are to work and live in this uniquely transformative place. Jerry focused on The Wilbur Experience and it's healing environment for those wishing to disengage from their hectic lives.

As a team, we want our guests to feel welcomed, safe and in a “happy place”, when they come to decompress in this haven for relaxation.

Showing kindness to our guests, and to one another, was the main topic of the meeting. We were all touched by his message of love.

When Jerry was finished, Dr. Miller shared his thoughts with the group and managed to be brief (you know how radio guys can go on). He was touched with the heartfelt presentation and insight offered. Following Jerry’s "kindness" session, we were amazed to learn that, in 1972, when Dr. Miller purchased the property, he had a license plate that read BKIND which he still has today. (Pictured)

From Wilbur’s inception to present, the foundation of endeavoring towards greater kindness continues.

We look forward to meeting you. It's a new day at Wilbur!
