What practices do you use to keep your body healthy?

Qigong, Amma therapy, swimming, walking and yoga. I avoid rich foods, eat a lot of fresh produce, a little chicken, a fair amount of fish, drink alcohol only a little, and try to sleep well.

What practices do you use to keep your mind clear of unwanted thoughts?

Energy practices, such as emotional freedome technique, and a lot of distraction.

Would you like to feel even better than you feel now?

Who wouldn't? I have osteoarthritis. I have to be very careful about the balance -- not overdoing a good thing, and listening to my own body, not what others recommend necessarily.

In what ways have you been inspired to practice better mind/body health?

Dona Eden workshop, myriad classes (cardio salsa, yoga, qigong, Buddhist meditation) and recognizing how unhealthy eating and behavior makes me feel - - yucky. Also, working in community mental health and seeing so much suffering intertwined with unhealthy behaviors.


To meet resourceful people and share my own eclectic knowledge and skills. To find resources for my clients and be a resource for others.
