The Commonwealth Club: Body Intelligence: Discovering Your Right Relationship to Your Body, Your Loved Ones and the Natural World
By combining the latest scientific research and over 20 years of medical practice, Rachel Carlton Abrams will empower you to find greater health and joy within your body and your life. You will learn how to cultivate the right relationship with yourself, with others and with the natural world. She will lead you through exercises that help you listen to your own innate body intelligence––the subtle and not-so-subtle signals that our body uses to communicate with us. Research shows that our personal relationships and our connection to nature have an enormous impact on our health—including risks of all chronic diseases: heart disease, diabetes, depression, anxiety and even cancer. Abrams will teach you a method to find your way back to right relationship with the important people in your life—whether finding the connections you crave or setting the boundaries that keep you safe. You will learn about your deep and abiding connection to the natural world and how you can reimmerse yourself in the healing and calming power of nature. We are not separate from nature, and its impact on us is physically and emotionally profound. Abrams has written five books on integrative and holistic approaches to health, relationships and sexuality. She is a much sought-after speaker who uniquely integrates the latest science with ancient wisdom to help you heal and finally discover true lasting health.
