Making the Connection

Take a moment to think back to a time when you were so full of grief that it consumed you, consumed you so fully that it brought you actual, physical pain. Consider a time when you faced an illness or injury; what impact did it have on your emotions? Did you become depressed? Angry? Enraged? Think of a time when you faced a fear so terrifying that your heart raced, your palms sweat, the pit in your stomach turned. ...Now try to deny the mind-body connection. It is nearly impossible. The connection is incredible.
Yet, what is even more incredible is the concept of using that connection as a tool for overall wellness. Harnessing the breath to clear the mind of anxiety, using meditation to eliminate pain, coming into an awareness of the body through yoga pratice to connect to the inner self. Just a few of the connections that will be explored in this blog.
Feel free to share ideas and experiences, ask questions or ponder the amazing connection of the mind and body!
