Getting whole on a holistic cruise

In a theater of plush lavender seats and starlight illumination, John Salley, a four-time NBA champion who played with the Pistons, Heat, Raptors, Bulls, and Lakers, says something that has nothing to do with basketball. “Eat well and I can assure you a content mind, soul, and integrity will follow.’’

The crowd’s attentive hush is a far cry from a sports arena, as is Salley’s current occupation of traveling the world to deliver the message that you are what you eat. He interrupts his proselytizing to say, “Wow! Five hundred years ago I would have been on a boat thinking about a very different kind of emancipation. This is some kind of unbelievable.’’
