Geneen Roth reminds us to give thanks to the body we’re in right now.
People usually come to my workshops because they want to lose weight. They want to stop suffering. They want to be happy. I talk to them about trusting themselves and about listening to their bodies. Once you do that, I say, everything—your relationship with food, yourself, your body—tends to fall into place.
“We inhabit a borderland between Newtonian physics and the quantum model of reality,” says biophysicist and cell-biologist Joyce Hawkes. The secret to healing and living well is learning to find balance along the interface of both.
When Beryl Bender Birch received a serious medical diagnosis, she was in denial. “I’m Beryl Bender Birch, I don’t do ‘hip replacements,’ much less osteoarthritis,” she said. Then an “aha” moment led her back to the practices that would help her heal.
Is paying your bills and unpleasant and deflating chore? Joyce Hawkes shows you how to turn it around and reap the awareds with this simple practice of gratitude.
A friend of mine, Hilde, an exceedingly successful small-business owner, scolded me when I whined about the time it took to write checks for bills. I expressed how I despised doing that chore from the aspect of both time and the resulting reduction in my bank balance. She explained her way of paying bills.
According to anthropologist and shaman Hank Wesselman, it is not enough to suppress the effects of illness with medication. For true healing to occur, the causes of the illness must be addressed.
You brain is exquisitely synchronized and interconnected, says biophysicist and cell-biologist Joyce Hawkes. The science behind this is what makes cell-level healing possible.
According to Marc David, the way you navigate your life is the way you navigate your metabolism. The good news is you can change how you live and transform your metabolism starting right now.
Metabolism isn’t something you fix. You can measure certain aspects of it, yet metabolism itself is measureless. You can tweak certain parts of it, yet it remains always whole. You can command it to do your bidding, yet it will always answer to a higher source.
Marc David helps us recognize that at its deepest level, eating is an affirmation of life.
I hereby agree, from this day forward, to fully participate in life on earth. I agree to inhabit the appropriate vehicle for such participation—a body. As a requisite for the sustaining of that body, and of the life that dwells therein, I agree to be an eater. This agreement fully binds me for the duration of my stay on earth.
Tama Kieves describes how staying present and “riding the train” of discomfort when facing challenges can help us lead a happier, more fulfilling life.
