Disgraced Professional Football Player Becomes Holistic Healer
I am always gladdened when people turn their lives around and find their life’s passion. Ricky Williams, a star running back, called himself the poster child for marijuana. And yep, he did fail a drug test, causing him to be booted from the National Football League. For the details, see this recent article in The New York Times.
But Williams used the time to grow as a person. First he studied Ayurveda in India. He followed that up with a 17 month course at The California College of Ayurveda, one of the leading Ayurveda schools in North America.
Williams returned to football in 2005, and is now studying Eastern healing, herbs and massage at a school in Florida to prepare for a career post-football.
I give him a lot of credit. What a life turnaround!
