Love, The Only Medicine You Need

This month I’m going to go a little farther out on the limb of a tree I’ve been cultivating–the primacy of a spiritual compass and its relationship to Medicine. I’ll admit up front, I know that I’m running the risk of upsetting you. So, I apologize in advance, because it’s not my intention to turn…

How are You…How’s Your Being?

When I greet someone, or they greet me, it’s not uncommon for the question, “how are you?” to be heard. It’s polite and often a reflexive greeting that makes sense on the most basic level. Similarly, on the most basic level, it’s typical to hear a response such as, “fine” or “good”. This is often…

The Emerging Spirit of Wholism

I was at a “health conference” this past week to learn more about how our Autonomic Nervous System (sympathetic/parasympathetic, fight-or-flight/rest-digest functions) affects us.

The latter are profound and often beyond the pain that words can describe. The former–bad breaks, missed opportunities, people in our way and problems of all sorts–are numerous, often trivial, by comparison, but bother us…

I Love Winter

There are many reasons I love the season of winter. I love the crisp cold air, the incredibly clear blue skies, the sound of the wind howling through leafless trees, the smell of the fireplace and the cozy warmth of the hearth. But, above all else, I truly love the winter because of the spring…

Examining our Emotions

At our recent Men’s Group, one of the guys shared something he recently came across…a book that suggested that our emotions are essentially another sense; similar to smell, taste, sight, etc. This got me thinking, largely because I have spent so much time considering the effects of emotions, both personally and professionally, that they have…

Doing Less

One of the hallmarks of people who are not feeling as well as they’d like is described as the feeling of being overwhelmed. For some, this means not having the energy to do the things they want; and to others, this manifests as a drain on the muscles of motivation that are required to stay…

In Pursuit of Happiness

I’m struck by how many times the word happiness comes up in conversation. Not only the ones that I share in a professional capacity, but in my life ongoing — indeed, in my own head, almost incessantly. I’m guessing that I’m not alone. So, when I saw that a nearly discarded piece of paper, left…
