Loving Encounters & Stories About Don

Erin Henderson  writes…

One day when I just finished up working in the garden. Don & Sadie walked over to me. He asked me, “Do you love your food?” And I stared at him blankly & thought what a strange question to ask…since I never thought about it before. Then I… thought it & replied “Yes.” With a gentle smile (the kind the lights up in the eyes), he said sincerely to me, “Good. Love your food and in return, it will love you.” That moment forward, I have always made sure that I give gratitude for this healing, nourishment. Don is such a gentle, loving, selfless being, who will be dearly missed. May peace and healing reach all of those…family, friends and lucky individuals who mourn the loss of this man.

  1. I attended CHI in the 90’s and every year in 2000 except for 2010. I am very sorry to hear about Don’s passing. He was truly dedicated to promoting the raw foods lifestyle and took great care to keep it true to Dr. Ann Wigmore’s program. His passion for providing opportunities for others to regain their health through his program was paralleled only by Dr. Ann herself. He often said he loved the challenging questions the guests at the institute asked, because if he didn’t know the answer he would make sure he researched it until he did. It took tremendous courage for Don to deal with the numerous life threatening conditions he witnessed at the clinic and through it all had to stand up to the skeptics and various government officials who continually wanted to shut the clinic down. He opened his doors and heart to those with health issues and provided a safe haven for them to begin the healing process. God Bless Don Haughey a man of great faith, passion and courage. He will be sadly missed.

  2. While Don and I had our differences over the years, he always inspired and motivated me to follow a path of helping and inspiring others.

    He taught me to that good health, and all of life, is Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual.

    Thanks, Don, for all you did for me, and all that you contributed to the World.

  3. In 1998 I came across a little booklet called “Finding Health in Hodunk”, after reading it I felt compelled to check out that place for myself and learn all I can to bring back to the many friends in Vancouver, Canada that are suffering with cancer. Don was at the Center daily having his mid-day meal with us. I just marveled at how he would chew his Energy Soup for well half an hour, appreciating each and every spoon full whereas we, the students, tried to get it down as quickly as possible.
    We were fortunate on our last course day to get a tour from Don of his remarkable home The Mill and it’s many treasures all topped by a lecture from Don himself full of his heart and spirit.
    I consider myself blessed having met and known this genuine, humble and great spirit, a person called Don Haughey.

  4. I had the privilege of knowing Don for many years. I used to come for the weekend banquet, take the tour,and listen to his wonderful talks(which I never tired of). It was always so inspiring to hear Don share his life story, and the remarkable stories of the people he helped find a second chance at life. It was such a joy to know someone who dedicated their life to help others as a gift back for what they had recieved. Thanks Don for touching my life, and the lives of so many others.
