Through my own healing journey, I have learned that health is not achieved by targeting the mind or body, but through the integration of mind, body, and spirit. I have also come to understand that health is not an individual state, but a collective and social dynamic. As we learn how to regulate our own nervous systems, we become more able to participate in the joys and challenges that life brings. Healing our own wounds helps us develop the capacity to be present for both ourselves and others.
