BODYWISE LIVING TELESEMINAR: HOW DO WE USE OUR BODY COMPASS TO LIVE A LIFE OUR BODY LOVES?
FEB 10TH, 2017
Join Lissa Rankin, MD and Rachel Abrams, MD for a FREE hour long teleseminar to talk about how you can learn to listen more closely to the signals your body gives you and to connect with your Body Compass to create a life your body loves. We’ll discuss our own struggles and how we’ve learned to navigate using body intelligence for deeper harmony with our bodies, the earth herself, and the people we love.
What does it mean to follow your Body Compass? Sometimes it speaks in subtle ways before it speaks more dramatically in the form of acute or chronic illness. For example, on this call, Lissa will discuss the process of how her body recently prodded her to leave Facebook. How did her body speak? How did she know how to interpret what her body was saying? What practices do Lissa and Rachel use to tune into the Body Compass? They will share stories and practices about how our bodies are talking to us all the time, in the most practical of ways, if only we're sensitive enough to listen.

In this lesson, you'll put your basic understanding of body intelligence to work with the 4-part BQ quiz.
Now that you understand the importance of measuring your BQ, let's find out just how bodywise you are. I have developed a short quiz to test your BQ (your body intelligence quotient) so that you have an idea of where you're starting on the road to becoming bodywise.
By improving your BQ, you can dramatically improve your overall well-being. And by the way, no one gets a perfect score on this test—so you will have room for improvement, and that's OK! I'm going to ask you to come back and repeat the quiz at the end of this course and I bet that you'll see improvement.
The quiz is divided into four sections:
You'll want to tally your score in each section so that you are aware of the areas where you need improvement and can tailor the BodyWise plan to suit your unique needs.
