Where East Meets West
Daphne Crocker White loves the geographic beauty, peace and calm that her Run for the Sky Ranch overlooks in the hills north of San Rafael. She appreciates the mindset of its people, too. “There are many who think out of the box – environmentally, creatively, politically and health-wise,” she says. “They ask ‘Why don’t you try acupressure, homeopathy, osteopathy? We are open to its value.’”
It was this openness and Daphne’s personal devotion to spirituality and health that led her to make an early philanthropic investment in Sutter Health CPMC’s Institute for Health & Healing. “When in a dark room, you can light a match and shed a small amount of light, just like a modest investment made from what you believe in can lead to great impact.”
The Institute, now one of the most progressive integrative health programs in the U.S. affiliated with a major medical center in the United States, offers holistic primary care, outpatient and in hospital services that blend the best of Eastern and Western medicine.
