If ever there was a need for dedicated self-care and expanded wellness, it is now. The pervasiveness of never-ending change, ongoing tragedy, devastation, and political turmoil can leave even the least -sensitive of us spinning and trying to catch our breath. As we witness the world and do our best to support our communities, friends and families through tough times, we are reminded how important it is to be as strong and as well as we can be so that we can be of service to others.
For those who have suffered great loss, setbacks and atrocities, it is hard to believe that spaces for healing and healing paths abound. Nothing can change what has been irreparably altered in the universe. Wisdom teaches that the body, the breath, the loving space of community and the grace of time are healing balms for the deepest of wounds. All that we experience, we experience as sensory beings—in our bodies. All emotions, all thoughts, all hopes, all dreams and even all nightmares are experienced through our human anatomy.
