Strengthening Your Ability To Pay Attention with Winifred Gallagher

There is no “attention center” in the brain. So where is our capacity for sustained focus located? Research shows us that it is an ensemble of alerting, orienting, and executive networks collaborating to attune us to what’s going on in our inner or outer world in coherent ways that point us toward an appropriate response. Most of us don’t understand that attention is a finite resource, like money, so it pays for us to focus on what is [...]

Tapping Into The Body’s Remarkable Healing Ability with Maud Nerman, D.O.

The founder of osteopathic medicine, Andrew Taylor Still, said, “To find health should be the object of the doctor. Anyone can find disease.”   The training of osteopathic medicine is identical to that of the M.D. profession. However, an osteopathic physician has up to 500 additional hours of anatomy, manual medicine, and kinesiology. Like M.D.s, these doctors can also prescribe drugs and do surgery. Nerman tells us that what is most important for her is her ability to [...]

Fairytales: Liberators Of The Soul with Isha Lerner

It’s said that a fairytale is a mystical story stemming from an oral folklore tradition that teaches the higher virtues of life through simple stories and sagas. It’s nothing short of an alchemical adventure where mortals, beasts and the forces of dark and light intermix. In fairytales, as in life, there is an initiation, a leaving home and entering the forest and encountering dark forces. Then, there is an enchantment, the miracle, the kiss, the mentor, [...]

Redefining Success And Thriving with Arianna Huffington

The common lament in these post-modern times is that there is not enough time. We’re overly busy and are overworking. We allow our gadgets, such as smart phones and tablets, to absorb our attention.

Surrender Is The Doorway with Judith Orloff, M.D.

When physician Judith Orloff is asked what’s the most important factor in health and recovering from illness, her answer is surrender. It’s her experience that surrender must be the engine that drives all choices about healing. However, it must be pointed out that surrender, in her definition, doesn’t mean giving in or giving up. “Surrender is the ability to flow with life and accept what is rather than pushing and fighting and struggling with life all the [...]

Compassionate End-of-Life Care with Fran Smith and Sheila Himmel

We all hope for dying well and living fully until we do.

The hospice movement has been integral in helping patients and their families move through this most intense transition of dying. Not only does it offer support to the patient, it supports the [...]
