“The dividing line between what happens automatically and what happens voluntarily isn’t fixed. Choices matter, and thus the healing self comes into play. On its own the body knows how to survive; it’s up to us to teach it how to thrive.”
― Deepak Chopra, The Healing Self
Supercharge your immune system and stay well for life
The Sattva book club has released a new text for April 2020, The Healing Self: Supercharge your immune system and stay well for life by Deepak Chopra and Rudolf E. Tanzi. This book couldn’t be explored at a better time in reflection of our current global climate. In this book, Deepak Chopra and Harvard Professor of Neurology, Rudolf Tanzi explore the ability of each human body to self-heal and therefore, continually have access to a thriving, and very powerful immune system.
This book speaks the language of both holistic, ancient medicinal sciences and the perspectives of modern medicine in understanding how to align all aspects of our human system to not only heal but maintain a well body for life.
The Healing Self delves into essential topics such as mind/body connection in human experience, disease and healing, in addition to exploring our belief systems as either a hindrance or a help in accessing our ability to heal.
Understanding and stabilising inflammation in the body.
The power of belief systems.
The mind/body connection.
Monitoring stress levels and types of stress we are exposed to.
Understanding the power of movement and sleep.
Practising effortlessness and connection to your world and other beings.
