The Beginning of Health

Where does health begin?

Health begins with the remembrance of who we are and how we are naturally designed as human beings to be deeply nourished by the gifts of life. These gifts, like all gifts, can only be received and given in personal relationships.

To resurrect our understanding of health, we desperately need to create the space for real relationships to remember truth, revive love and return to the basics of caring for our spirits, hearts, minds and bodies.

Health is not a result. Health is who we are, it is part of our beautiful design.

We can strengthen our health with a daily practice of being human by being present and opening our hands, hearts, spirits, minds and bodies to remembering, encouragement, inspiration, nourishment and to receive and give help. Health restoration does not begin with food but with knowing who we are you and how we are naturally designed to be healthy, whole and holy human beings.

Together, we can remember who we are and how we are designed to Breathe, Listen, Ask, Look and Move in the present moment to experience hope, joy, love, truth, imagination, feelings, thoughts, sounds, colors, shapes, smells, tastes and sights.

You are invited to join me for a different conversation about what it health means.
