A Glimpse Of Heaven by Dr. Glen Hepker



Today I have the pleasure of interviewing awesome Dr. Hepker, author of A Glimpse Of Heaven. He has an amazing philosophy for your health and wellbeing. I think that we all can benefit, I know I can use some tips, lol.

Dr. Hepker I'm thrilled to have you visiting my blog. Would you please tell us a little bit about yourself, how you decided to enter the world of writing, what does your family think of your writing, and where do you get your ideas, etc.

During all of my adult life, I have always planned on writing this and at least two other books which complement, e.g., Volume I, II, and III. I had always hoped that in my 50's, I would be mature enough to do a good job in writing it, though most of my life, I have outlined the books. My wife has been wonderfully supportive all throughout, even now, with regard to my marketing responsibilities. Humbly and respectfully, I am quite fortunate on many fronts. With regard to where I got the ideas for the book, I have doctorate degrees in psychology and health/wellness arts, and a part-time individual and marital counselor, a wellness coach, and a master instructor of tai chi chuan, chi kung, kung fu, and associated health/wellness arts (i.e., which are inclusive of the vast ages-old health/wellness Bright Beautiful School of Though/Ming Chia intrinsic to the empathetic and benevolent health and wellness philosophy found in his writing) at Mason City Wellness Center LLC/Mason City Tai Chi~Chi Kung~Kung Fu LLC, Mason City, IA.
Dr. Glen, you have impressive qualifications and background. 
Can you tell us a little about your book?


Based on the age-old Bright Beautiful School of Thought, my writing explains

how the quality of our lives will be greatly enhanced once we learn to raise 

ourselves up by taking True Responsibility for our own health and wellbeing.

 It guides readers through the tenets of the Bright School theory and assists

 the reader in realizing this level of True Health. Most especially, this health 

and wellness philosophy is distinguished by its remarkable, thought-

provoking, and ingenious notion of coalescing ethics and morality and 

deeply-rooted insight/objectivity skills with conceptions of health and 

wellness, i.e., True Health and/or True Health through True Responsibility. It 

sets forth that one cannot realize True Health without the necessary and truly 

skilled attributes of deep insight, morality, clear objectivity - learning the True

 Skill of being able to look within and without (into one's internal and external 

environments), without fear, without preset patterns of thinking. It sets forth

 the importance of True Honesty - gathering a level of objective insight that 

introduces one to the notion of not needing anything to hide behind. Such 

healthful clarity is a significant aspect of what he describes as 'glimpses of 

heaven'...loving bioelectric spine-tingling (chi) feelings/realizations (and 

nurturing the True Skill of doing so AT WILL). It sets forth the notion that one 

of the greatest gifts of all is that there is always room for improvement, versus

 the living death of stagnant plateaus - "life is not measured by the number of

 breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away."


What is your writing process?
I have taught these arts for decades, so it is not difficult to put the information

 down. I had a basic outline of the book, chapter by chapter, both written 

down, and in my mind. The philosophy beautifully connect dots by its very 

nature. I simply began writing accordingly.

What was the hardest part for you working on your book?

Aside from my duties in writing and marketing it, I already work about 40 

hours per week. Additionally, I am already fortunate to be a quite happy 

fellow, so overall, the most difficult thing is to set forth the time to do these

 things.

What influenced or inspired you to write?

I enjoy substantive faith in the beauty and meaningfulness of its 

philosophy...and, humbly and respectfully, I believe that setting it forth in this

 book is my attempt at making the world a better place.

Was there a scene that you didn’t add or remove in your finished 
work?
N
o,can't think of any.


Do you already know what to do next?

Yes, Volume II, will be A Glimpse of Heaven: Volume II - Conversations on the 

Philosophy of True Health. It will be more contextual, vs. the initial book being

 more purely philosophical - which set forth the foundation of the Bright 

School theory.

Where can we find more about you and your books?

Online with Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Goodreads, Wattpad, Pinterest, the book's blog, the book's website, on Amazon,
and many other book-related sites.

Do you have any last words?

Just to say, it is a privilege and pleasure. Please accept my humble thanks for this...and know it truly means a lot.

Thank you Dr. Hepker for your time. It is a pleasure to learn about your philosophy on health and wellness. I know that you have aroused my interest and I will be looking for your book. I know that this is a great gift idea to give to your loved ones and friends. Best wishes to you.

It is a serious, yet loving, compassionate, altruistic, and empathetic work. It is also lovingly passive in its tone (voice and pretense). It is not self-promoting, self-aggrandizing, or evangelistic. It is a beautiful, superbly benevolent, and exceedingly well-thought-out health and wellness way-of-life (which is humbly devoid of legalistic or religious tendencies or bias). Its voice is untarnished - it never competes or sells.
