On the day after a heartbreaking debate, in the midst of many global crises, when many of us find ourselves feeling fury, helplessness, and grief, drowning in shadow, I wanted to share with you a love letter. This is not meant to bypass the very human emotions many of us feel or to squelch any impulse that might arise in you to serve love through your activism. (You can read about my own fury about last night’s debate on Facebook here). But sometimes, we do need to be reminded that all of this upheaval is part of the Lila, the Divine play. Let this reminder soothe your nervous system and awaken your soul.Dear Human,
In my first TEDx talk, The Shocking Truth About Your Health, I introduced the idea that optimal health requires not just a good diet, daily exercise, and plenty of sleep, but also healthy relationships, a healthy professional life, a healthy spiritual life, and so much more. But in 18 minutes, I didn’t have time to get into any detail about the scientific evidence proving that the Whole Health Cairn wellness model I introduced is essential to good health.
In my second TEDx talk, which I delivered on 11-11-12 in Santa Barbara, I dig deeper into the literature, sharing some mind-blowing data that previews my upcoming book Mind Over Medicine (which is now available for pre-order on Amazon! Woot!) You’ll have to watch it all the way through so you can see the surprise ending that still warms my heart.
As many of you know, I’m on a mission to heal health care, and if you’re one of the many who share my mission, you can help by spreading the word about this TEDx talk. If this talk resonates with you, please post a comment on YouTube about the talk, like it on YouTube, post it on Facebook, tweet it on Twitter. The more attention the talk gets, the more likely it is that TED.com will pick it up and promote it. And this is the first step to healing health care - raising consciousness.
