Dr Gabriel Cousens, MD, is a world-recognized medical doctor and spiritual teacher. At the age of forty Cousens began to study the Torah and kabbalistic texts intensely. Training under Rabbi Gershon Winkler, he received “smecha” in 2008.
He is the founder and director of the Tree of Life Foundation, which trains Essene priests and priestesses and coordinates international humanitarian programs benefiting disadvantaged families, children, and indigenous cultures through holistic education.
Cousens is the author of numerous books. In addition, he offers a free two-hour internet TV show called Alive with Gabriel in which he lectures and discusses spiritual, family, and relationship matters as well as spiritual nutrition issues. He has lectured on this program at many medical schools and centers around the world and provides spiritual and nutritional teaching. Rabbi Cousens lives in Patagonia, Arizona, with his wife Marcela Benson
Tachyon Energy - a New Paradiam in Holistic Healing
Wagner and Cousens demonstrate a tachyon theory that unveils the delicate weave of Spirit, kundalini, health, physics, and biology as a subtle dance out of traditional healing. This book explains, in the authors' persuasive words and case studies, the breakthrough holistic healing technology called Tachyon energy. Benefits include a more rapid healing and at least a partial reversal of the aging process. They have successfully merged concepts of science and spirituality, as they bridge the faster than light world of existence with our slower than light world of form. The reader of this book will understand profoundly how tachyon energy is the source of all frequencies as well as the source of all healing.
"Bravo to the authors! I wanted to know more about tachyons and this book breaks it down and provides plenty of third party, unbiased research that backs up the author's claims. I think it's unfair reviewers hold it against the author for explaining his background, what the device and products he's invented are, and why he believes it can help so many people. Yes he has products, all of Amazon is products! How can they make a difference if they don't offer products at an affordable price so people can experience tachyons themselves? We are under attack from toxins, including electro-smog which is the super toxin of them all.
I thank the authors for what they're trying to give to the world. I came to tachyons looking for solutions to EMF/Cell phone/Wi-fi exposure that permeates our modern society. As a certified radiation specialist, I have been looking for something to offer my clients that can actually allow them to live with technology without it shortening their lives (and future generations). I am impressed with the research that shows his tachyonized products not just protect the body but have regenerative effects. If only half of it is true, this is revolutionary for the human race. Blessings and may you continue to do this very important work."
"Great book on tachyons and understanding how they can promote holistic healing by energizing our SOEF's (subtle organizing energy fields). I have bought many tachyonized products since reading the book, from Advanced Tachyon Technologies. The book shows some scientific experiments demonstrating the effects of tachyons. A lot of great stuff in here. I wish the book was bigger with more information. Tachyons, as a sub-atomic quasi-particle, are still not so well understood in the scientific community. One thing that really stuck with me is tachyons can be thought of as energy trying to become a particle. Tachyons are faster than light, and have no frequency, but contain all that is needed potentially, and can give exactly what is needed, and never too much, as it is regulated by the SOEF's."

Conscious Eating: Second Edition
Conscious Eating has been referred to as the "Bible of Vegetarians," for both beginners and advanced students of health. This classic work in the field of live-food nutrition is an inspirational journey and a manual for life. Included is new information on enzymes, vegetarian nutrition for pregnancy, and an innovative international 14-day menu of gourmet, Kosher, vegetarian, live-food cuisine, plus 150 recipes.
"In this book, an expanded revision of his 1992 work, Cousens endeavours to make his readers aware of how their food choices affect their bodies, minds, emotions, and spiritual life. He emphasizes there is no one-diet-fits-all approach, but rather a consciousness on the part of the individual of what works. He includes information on the oxidative, autonomic, ayurvedic, anabolic-catabolic, endocrine, blood-type, and acid base diet systems. In personalizing a diet, the individual needs to answer these questions:
- Am I emotionally stable after eating?
- Do I have increased physical energy after eating?
- Am I craving any foods?
"The author establishes guidelines for healthy eating by recommending that people consume natural, whole, and organic foods and that the diet be primarily fresh, live raw foods. He advocates a high-complex-carbohydrate, low-protein, and low-fat regimen with attention to receiving adequate sunlight. Deep breathing, bathing, and contact with nature in the form of gardening or hikes all have therapeutic effects. The book is a valuable reference tool that belongs in every vegetarian's library."
"This is excellent. Well-researched and erudite. The spiritual perspective of vegetarianism and live-food eating is addressed thoroughly. Lots of mentions of God, which was a bit off-putting at first. But I realised that he was referring to a non-denominational concept of God. His work comes from his long experience and his own spirituality. He writes with integrity. I am finding this inspiring reading. Particularly interesting is the section on Ayurvedic physical types, and the diets suitable for various constitutions. Fascinating. Thoroughly recommended if you wish to explore the deeper issues around food and body and spirit."
"This is an excellent book for those interested in the impact of diet in relation to disease, it is also great for students of nursing, medicine & complementary therapy! And those who want to research food and spirituality"
"Very good book for healthy eating and living. I'll recommend to my friends. It's a new challenge to become vegan"
Kathryn Joy Blake
"I was recommended this book by a friend... it's about 1000pgs long so still got a way to go but it's a brilliant book if one is interested in a raw food lifestyle. Very in depth and a great read!!"

Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine
Medical researchers have found that a high-fat, high-sugar diet, combined with environmental pollutants and stress, can lead to a build-up of toxins in the body collectively known as chronic degenerative disease. Here holistic physician Gabriel Cousens addresses the dangers of foods that have been genetically modified, treated with pesticides, microwaved, and irradiated—and presents an alternative diet of whole, natural, organic, and raw foods that can reverse chronic disease and restore vitality.
Both a guide to natural health and a cookbook, Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine features over 250 revolutionary vegan recipes from chefs at the Tree of Life Cafe, from Buttery Butternut Porridge to Raw-violis to Carob Coconut Cream Eclairs. Combining modern research on metabolism, ecological consciousness, and a rainbow of live foods, Dr. Cousens dishes up comprehensive, practical, and delectable solutions to the woes of the Western diet.
"Excellent read & a must have for every raw foodist. Commit yourself to reading several pages every day & you'll eventually have the book put down. :-) My 1st copy came damaged, but a replacement was sent right away in better packaging. Very pleased!"
"Great recipes! Was afraid at first they would be healthy but not too tasty. NOT SO!!!! And easy to make. Never thought using dill for example would taste so heavenly and have such a immediate and noticeable healthy effect. I am talking about the tomato soup recipe (there are several all with distinctly different flavors!) made with pine nuts and dill that can be made in under seven minutes! Tastes heavenly and was a great hit with my family, even my mom who is 94 and set in her ways. Try this book, it has several good and tasty recipes easy to make. It is by the same author of the book on how to cure diabetes and these recipes are labeled in such a way to show you how to incorporate them into the plan for addressing diabetes effectively. The recipes don't compromise optimal health benefits for the sake of taste, as in some raw food cook books, yet they taste wonderful! So definitely get this raw food cookbook because it keeps raw food interesting and tasty and the recipes are as pure and healthy as they get!!!"
"This book, along with the LifeFood Recipe Book by the Judds, are my current bibles on raw foods. I think this book is better researched and more scientific than the LifeFood book, but I use recipes from both all the time. The one thing I'm not really sure about is the temperature for dehydrating raw foods. The LifeFood book won't allow anything dried at a temperature over 118 degrees, but this book, as well as the manufacturer of the Excalibur Dehydrator, which is supposed to be the best, say you can start with a higher temperature for several hours and then reduce it. Have tried both ways, I prefer starting with the higher temp both for the texture of the food as well as the reduced drying time.
Other books I would recommend are: The Raw Food Detox Diet by Rose, Green for Life by Boutenko and Nourishing Traditions by Fallon. Although Nourishing Traditions is not a book about raw foods only, it is about natural foods and does have some raw food recipes as well as a wealth of information about food that I've never seen anywhere else. It's well worth having in your library if you are seriously concerned about the foods you eat or you don't intend to eat totally raw."
"Essential if one is looking to go beyond the cosmetic side of Raw Living cuisine. There is inspiring medical findings here. It is much more than a 'recipe book' ... This volume pretty much was the seed which kickstarted our home business "BIA BEO - Living & Raw Foods in Éirinn" few years back .... Legend! Eventually meeting the good author at his Tree of Life center in the Arizona desert; and the next year, embarking on a spiritual fasting retreat with Dr Cousens in the desert near the Dead Sea in Israel. Now we hope to introduce his amazing teachings to the Emerald Isle in the spring of 2016. Wish us luck! (Thanks Amazon for delivering this book to us and igniting a fire!)"

Creating Peace By Being Peace
Join us as Gabriel Cousens MD, shares his wild adventurous mystical life that led to his liberation. The book takes us through the unique process of classical spiritual awakening and liberation in several paths, including Yoga and Torah-Kabbalistic traditions, and also his experiences in the Lakota Sundance, Eagle Dance and Spirit Dance.
It includes Dr. Cousens’ unique teachings of spiritual nutrition, and the Six Foundations and Sevenfold-Peace, that creates a natural way of living that leads to the Holistic Liberation Way.
Author Gabriel Cousens addresses the increasingly urgent need to transform humankind with the ancient peace wisdom of the Essenes, a Judaic mystical group that flourished two millennia ago. He begins by explaining the Essenes and the lessons they can teach us as creators of peace.Individual chapters cover a wide range of possibility, from the personal ('Peace with the Mind') to the political ('Peace with the Community').
The final chapter, 'Integrating Peace on Every Level', presents a comprehensive plan for peace with the body, mind, family, community, culture, ecology and God as a pervasive experience in life - moment to moment, day by day. Cousens blends documentary evidence with original interpretation to show that the Essenes actually did live this experience of peace. Most importantly, he transfers their gift to modern seekers as a breathing blueprint for realizing this reality as we walk in our lives; work according to our gifts, joys, and sacred design; and live the path of spiritual awakening - the sevenfold peace.
Alina Lazarescu - Abboud
"Dr Cousens proposes a seventh fold path to peace by being peace and making peace with body, making peace with mind, making peace with spirit, making peace with family, making peace with community, making peace with culture, making peace with ecology. I found some interesting ideas and it gave me a bigger awareness about on how many levels there is discord inside a person and in relationship with the outside and how any small individual change affect the global state. We all have our share of responsibility for the good and the bad on this planet."
"Dr. Cousens wrote this book using the third person narrative which is easy to adjust to once you begin. He does this because he is speaking from the awareness of Christ Consciousness and not from the identity of the ego self. It allows you to do the same while reading. It is a wealth of information on how to live a balanced spiritual life similar to the first Essenes. In fact this whole book is about how to balance all areas of life, thus creating peace within one's self which in turn creates peace in family, in community, and globally."
"Good and ancient recommendations for living individually and communally in a spirit of peace."

Torah as a Guide to Enlightenment
Inspired by intense studies, meditation, and a variety of teachings from the great Torah sages, best-selling author Gabriel Cousens, MD, presents the fifty-two parashas of the Torah as a practical path to liberation.
His interpretation, which focuses on enlightenment, what he feels is the original intention of the Torah, provides a multidimensional analysis and a perspective that is often missing from conventional teachings.
Torah as a Guide to Enlightenment conveys liberation understandings not only to those with Jewish and Christian backgrounds, but to anyone seeking to reconnect with their spiritual roots.
Rabbi Gershon Winkler
"A master of medicine, a healer of souls, an awakener of hearts, Rabbi Gabriel Cousens has freed up Torah to free up souls, flinging wide open her rusty gates to enable her wisdom to gush forth unabatedly and in fullness of intent and application. ... He skillfully weaves the wisdom of the sages through the ages into a cohesive and fruitful brew of lessons that speak directly to the deepest depths of our spirits. ... [His] treatise of the Torah raises the decibels of her voice so that all souls, regardless of their external identities, can hear her message and experience her magic."
Jason D. Groode, senior director of Sufis Hawaii
Rebbe Gabriel Cousens's deep and profound book is reopening a door to Judaism and Torah that has been closed in my heart for a long time. Through Torah as a Guide to Enlightenment, I can now begin to understand the spiritual teachings of the Torah, how inspiring and beneficial they are for me as well as for the many Jewish members within our Sufi spiritual community. I appreciate the rebirth into the Jewish tradition within my heart and experience."
Rabbi Moshe Schatz, author
"Torah as a Guide to Enlightenment is a fascinating gateway into some of the most profound mysteries of creation. Rabbi Gabriel Cousens, MD, attempts to unlock the gate to give us a taste of some of the sparks of the inner Torah through modern science and Kabbalah."
Trudy Green, manager of Aerosmith (previously manager of Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Heart, and Perry Farrell)
"For years, as a Jewish woman separated from my roots, I have been seeking the doorway to Enlightenment through Judaism. And here it is. Rabbi Gabriel Cousens, MD, has brought the life and soul back to one of the greatest spiritual paths in the world in a way that has dramatically and profoundly touched the essence of my soul. Torah as a Guide to Enlightenment is a God-inspired door opener into the great ancient teachings, a guide to help prepare people to receive the messianic energies of liberation that have been prophesized."
"This is typical Gabriel Cousens: taking his depth of spirituality and bringing it to Judaism in a way that models the purpose of organized religion - to deepen our relationship with God by living according to His will, consistent with the original design of our species. Isn't this what Jesus did? He took the Old Testament and said "look, this is what God means, this is what he's saying, this is how to live, how age Torah as a Guide to Enlightenment less truths can be applied to this time in history." Is Gabriel Cousens the Messiah that the Jews have been waiting for?"
Doron Ben Avraham
"I've re-read this volume several times, great review of the weekly biblical Torah portions with deep insights from modern and ancient Jewish kabbalistic sources"

When we eat, can we feed the soul as well as the body? Can a diet have an impact on spirituality? Spiritual Nutrition empowers readers to develop personal diets that are appropriate to their lifestyles and spiritual practices. Drawing on 14 years of clinical experience and research, Dr. Gabriel Cousens discusses nutritional issues that can help answer these questions, including raw vs. cooked food; high vs. low protein; the concepts of assimilation and fasting; alkaline/acid balance; attitudes about food; nutrients, energy, and structure building.
In addition, Cousens shares his new dietary system of 'spiritual nutrition' that is based on the relationship that the color of the food has to the corresponding colors of the human chakra system, hence, the 'rainbow diet.' For true nourishment, he strongly promotes the connection of diet to meditation, fellowship, wisdom, and love. This edition is in two volumes.
Summer Bock, Holistic Nutrition & Herbs
"This is the basis for everything I think and do in regards to nutrition. I am totally inspired by Gabriel and want to get my Master's degree in Vegan and Live-Food Nutrition at his center in Arizona."
"Becoming a vegetarian, eating certain foods, or fasting is not going to lead you instantly to enlightenment. Awakening the Kundalini, reaching enlightenment, examining ones spirituality are paths that can take lifetimes worth of work or can spontaneously occur through grace. With that said, there are certain things that you can do that can facilitate the process.
Spiritual Nutrition sets out six foundations that help purify the system and ease the natural progress of one’s spirituality: nutrition, building prana (life force), service, spiritual guidance, silence, and Kundalini Awakening. Although each of our journeys are unique, the majority of seekers do some work in each of these areas throughout their lives
The purpose isn’t really to subscribe to one particular diet set out by the author. Instead, the author seeks to educate the reader and give him or her a place to start his or her own explorations. I appreciate that."
"This is an incredible book. It incorporates very personal experiences and devotional poetry from the author's own spiritual journey with scientific and nutritional info on what's needed to succeed with a raw and living foods lifestyle. Cousens applies Ayurvedic knowledge and theory to the raw foods approach, as well as setting out lots of information about the different nutrients needed and from which foods sources these may be obtained. Readers are encouraged to consider which Ayurvedic dosha they are and how this may affect their body's needs. Also dealt with is a fascinating and comprehensive look at the kundalini awakening process and the body's subtle energy centres, the chakras. Gabriel's recommended approach to spiritual life 'The Six Foundations' is set forth to guide the reader into considering a balanced, holistic approach to spiritual living. This is a book that has taught me lots as I've encountered kundalini experiences on my own journey and answers many questions. Gabriel's spirit of devotion and service to others is truly awe inspiring. A book I wouldn't want to be without, one I keep returning to again and again... a spiritual guide book for life."
"An excellent book on nutrition and spiritual life. I would recommend this to anyone on the path to healing and enlightenment."

There is a Cure for Diabetes (21 Days Holistic Recovery Program)
Diabetes has become a seemingly unstoppable national epidemic, affecting more than twenty million Americans. Conventional wisdom calls it incurable, but renowned Dr. Gabriel Cousens counters that claim with this breakthrough book.
There Is a Cure for Diabetes lays out a three-week plan for reversing the negative genetic expression of diabetes to a physiology of health and well-being. Dr. Cousens’s method, widely tested at his famous Tree of Life centers, is to reset the DNA through green juice fasting and a 100% organic, nutrient-dense, vegan, low-glycemic, low-insulin-scoring, and high-mineral diet of living foods in the first twenty-one days. Both practical and inspirational, the book explains how to abandon the widespread “culture of death”–symbolized by addictive junk food–that fosters diabetes in favor of a more natural, nurturing approach.
The program renders insulin and related medicines unnecessary within four days as the blood sugar drops to normal levels; and the diabetic shifts into a non-diabetic physiology within two weeks. The third week focuses on live-food preparation, featuring 100 delicious raw recipes. Dr. Cousens emphasizes regular consultations, monitoring blood chemistries, and emotional support, and includes a one-year support program to help maintain a diabetes-free life.
“If you want a program that will help you or your family/friends cure diabetes then this the program. The program is hard. Follow it only if you want to live a long healthy life.
I read this book in two days. Applied it to the mother of a friend with diabetes and she went to a normal FBS level after only 4 weeks. Side-note, we did execute an all or nothing approach, with no moderation.
This book is definitely geared more toward type-2 diabetics… People shouldn't buy this book expecting an easy solution. They are going to need a lot of dedication and support from family, friends and peer group.”
“Anyone interested in raw food or diabetes should read this book, which is to say, everyone should read this book. …His diabetes curing claim is based on fasting blood glucose levels. By getting his patients' blood sugar to drop to normal. What he's doing is merely "treating" diabetes… But his treatment, in addition to being more effective than traditional methods, also seems to carry real potential for actually "reversing" or "curing" diabetes, but he only hints at that in this book."
Bret James Stewart
"I really like this book. I had watched some videos and done some research on the author before reading the book, so I felt confident it would be great. This 6oo page book isn’t for the faint of heart. What Dr. Cousens is advocating is a change in mind-set and lifestyle, and this takes courage to do. The benefits are a longer, healthier, and more peaceful existence, and this is worthwhile. It is a technical book, but Cousens adds anecdotes and wisdom so that it is not as dry as you might expect.
The Western World is largely ignorant to holistic health, and this book can serve as a cure to this, as well. Cousens book is laid out into three main sections: First introducing diabetes and the factors in modern society contributing to it, second promoting his theory of diabetes as largely based upon the former, and third describing his healing programme. All of this is nestled between the front and back matter you’d expect, such as a foreward and indices, and supported by charts and other visuals that help explain the material.
This is a life-changing book that anyone who has diabetes or (better yet) wants to prevent diabetes should read.”
“I know some think Gabriel Cousens is out there, but he has something valuable on every page. I did not know that parabens act like oestrogens in our bodies!! What do excessive oestrogens do! Cause fat accumulation and cancers just to name two of the nasties!! Great book. Somewhat clinical, but generally very readable.”
“Excellent construction of the book, providing a solid foundation on the reasoning behind the lifestyle change, the benefits of it, the experimentation and results for it, and then providing a structured manner for the reader to pursue the same changes in their life.”

Into the Nothing: A Spiritual Autobiography of Gabriel Cousens
Join us as Gabriel Cousens MD, shares his wild adventurous mystical life that led to his liberation.
The book takes us through the unique process of classical spiritual awakening and liberation in several paths, including Yoga and Torah-Kabbalistic traditions, and also his experiences in the Lakota Sundance, Eagle Dance and Spirit Dance.
It includes Dr. Cousens’ unique teachings of spiritual nutrition, and the Six Foundations and Sevenfold-Peace, that creates a natural way of living that leads to the Holistic Liberation Way.
Stuart Brody J.D., senior scholar of State University of New York
“Gabriel Cousens achieves a rare feat here: articulating our loftiest spiritual aspirations yet offering a rich and versatile narrative of personal experience to show how to achieve it. Avoiding platitudes and pandering, he weaves the immensely varied spiritual influences of his life into a rich tapestry of insight that guides us on the path to liberation. He shows how the trajectory of spiritual evolution is both urgent and difficult; one cannot just suddenly ‘get it’ without spiritual work. This book—a splendid unfolding—shows how.”
Marcela Benson, author of Love, Peace & Vegetables
“Into The Nothing invites us into the possibility of seeing our lives as a teaching. In his autobiography, Gabriel Cousens intimately shares his life experience, spiritual awakening, and the integration of the great mystery into a life of selfless service—that of a liberated teacher and guide. Read his words, and sense into the space between the printed letters, and experience the direct teaching from a liberated master.”
Rabbi Gershon Winkler, PhD, Author of Magic of the Ordinary:
Recovering the Shamanic in Judaism
“Into the Nothing is far more than an intriguing autobiography. It is as much an inspirational guide to meaningfully negotiating the hairpin curves along our sometimes arduous life journey. Gabriel’s personal story shows us how liberation of the spirit is not to be discovered beyond ourselves but deeply within ourselves, veiled by a transparent film of illusion that reveals our possibilities while at the same time impeding them. The pathway to liberation lies beyond the veil, but the portal to it is embedded deep with us, waiting for our initiation. Life’s most rewarding qualities, the author demonstrates in this monumental sharing, is not to be found in the promises of the Something but in the mystery of the Nothing. After all, is that not where the Something came from, to begin with? Into the Nothing is then a fascinating down-to-earth story of a beyond-the-earth journey of one man’s grafting of both realms in his emergence as a liberated and enlightened master. An uplifting read for a downtrodden era.”
Shanti Cousens, MA, Aromatherapist
"Into the Nothing is beyond ordinary. It describes a depth of spiritual awareness that is rarely spoken about and less rarely lived at the level Gabriel is living life. This jewel of a book reveals the spiritual consciousness needed for us to shift into the new paradigm of expanded consciousness and new spirituality.”
Catia Simionato, head of Tree of Life Brazil
“I’ve been close to Dr. Gabriel Cousens for over a decade and his paradoxical way of being, at the same time wild and gentle, a mystic and a scientist, driven by his heart and so down to earth, has always intrigued me. His spiritual autobiography unveils the path that made the man, it shows how life in its infinite wisdom leads us into the depth of ourselves, the unknown, the nothing. For me, it’s a true model of a way of living that guides into Liberation.”
