I think how it must feel …

Let Me Help You Move Through (& Release) Difficult Emotions

    A few years ago I became a Death Doula. You would think as a physician we would be taught in detail about the death and dying process in medical school, but we weren’t.  Not at all. We were taught how to pronounce someone dead, how to perform advanced life support to try to stave off death, how to sign a death certificate… but never about the intricacies of it: what the body feels and experiences as the soul prepares to leave it what the dying process looks like what order the organ systems shut down in and how …

Valentine’s Day Special Edition: Heart Health From Every Angle… Mind, Body & Soul

  Our minds and our hearts are inextricably intertwined. Mostly we can feel this on an emotional level — we can literally feel the people we love making our hearts feel warm and protected and expand in our chest. And sadly even people we are hurt by or scared of, we can feel that too — our hearts can feel colder or constricted or pound with fear in our chests. Some of you are also aware that electrically — the brain and the heart each have an electrical field and that these electrical fields overlap. This gives our brain’s electrical …
