with Lissa Rankin

What if you could activate the power of your mind as medicine for your body? Whether you’re battling a chronic illness or seeking to live to be 100, treating your soul can improve your health. The body is equipped with natural self-repair mechanisms that are flipped off when the nervous system is in fight-or-flight mode. When the nervous system is relaxed, as it is during spiritual practice, intimate connection with loved ones, sex, laughter, or acts of service, the self-repair mechanisms are activated, and miracles are possible.
