Just Life Conversations and the Body-Mind Connection
Along the way, sometimes we get stuck. Tough problems and confusions arise. Inner stresses or relationship issues do not ease. There seems to be no release. At this point, often the body’s information is too isolated from our cognitive insights. The mind may deeply understand relevant emotions and relationship dynamics. Yet our body continues to act on its own, unknowingly holding learned reactions. Result: struggle at subtle, elusive levels.

Connected with our body, the present moment comes more into focus. We can begin to make more decisions from there, harmonizing old and new patterns. I know. I’ve been there. That’s why I make sure that “Just Life Conversations” integrate the body-mind connection, an alternative approach to life’s stress and distress.
