And now, well, we have this:

Everyday I love to immerse myself in an experience within the cleansing ocean water as well as a brief gaze into the radiant light of the early rising or late setting Sun. These simple, yet powerful practices have got to be two of the best forms of free medicine on the planet for body, mind and spirit. #sungazing ????????????❤️
Yes. He is now advocating for staring at the sun – or uh, #sungazing – as one of the best forms of “free medicine”.
He says he only has a “brief gaze” into the “radiant light of the early rising or late setting sun”, but damage to your eyes can happen within seconds and you should just… Not do this. Ever.
The Vision Eye Institute warns that when your eyes are over-exposed to the sun’s UV rays, the radiation literally cooks the exposed tissue and can cause permanent damage. Yes, this can even happen when UV levels are lower at sunrise and sunset.
Do. Not. Want.
This latest advice is truly baffling, and we’re not the only ones who think so.
or as he knows them “activated sunsets”
