Survival Stress

Survival Stress

As we wake up from the demands of the personal identity a new relationship with the body begins to awaken as well.  The body is no longer seen as a means to an end but an innocent and alive mystery with an innate intelligence…..

The Right Conditions

The Right Conditions

Human beings are like plants.  We do really well in the right conditions and poorly in the “wrong” conditions.  It’s up to us to discover what the right conditions are for us to heal.

The Present Moment is Safe

If you notice places of tension in your body simply ask yourself, “is this tension necessary right now?”  Just a gentle curiosity.  No demand for the tension to release or let go.  Be patient with yourself.

Curiosity and Chronic Illness

Curiosity and Chronic Illness

Even if you are unable to leave your bed because of a chronic illness you can awaken curiosity.  It’s impossible to be afraid and curious at the same time. Curiosity is a beautiful antidote to fear.
