LUKE (LUCIO) E. GATTO JR Luke (Lucio) E. Gatto Jr, adopted son of the Hopi and master healer, shaman and prober of universal mysteries, passed away on January 1, 2019 in Santa Fe NM. Born June 20, 1944 to Dr. Lucio Ernest Gatto Sr, Psychiatrist and Janice Sedorchuk Gatto. A graduate of Tulane University, with degrees in biology and chemistry, Luke founded the Human Dimensions Institute West in Ojai, CA in 1974, later known as The Ojai Foundation. Luke first came to New Mexico as the student of the pioneering nutritionist and healer Hazel Parcells. He was key prot‚g‚ of Parcells and agricultural geneticist, Derald Langham. He was an explorer of the Theosophical movement and developed many enduring friendships at Findhorne. Luke's profound knowledge ranged from scientific to spiritual, with a passion for hyper-dimensional physics and Hopi philosophy. He was most internationally known for his excellence in homeopathy, and the more esoteric field of radionics. Ever eager to discover new ideas in health, he was a true scholar, revisiting the old modalities to envision the new. He sought to delve deeply into both mind and matter where few dare to go. Preceded in death by his father, mother and brother David, Luke leaves behind his beloved brother Jaffrey and niece Jessica, and hundreds of grateful clients, and family, touched by his generosity of spirit, knowledge and expertise. A master diviner, he will be sorely missed by many. A Memorial is being planned.
