Why and How Meditation Works

I want to share today a short video that is probably one of the best synopses of what happens to us when we practice some form of meditation.

May there be many, many more!

 

Immune Function and Trauma Intertwine

I just returned from teaching 26 students The Upledger Institute’s CranioSacral Immune Response I in New York City. It was a great group and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.
