Body Weight—The Mind-Body Connection

Part 2 of Take Your Weight Off Your Mind explores the mind-body connection.

I also return to the importance of our gut health in supporting our wellbeing.

Take Your Weight Off Your Mind

As I have celebrated in earlier posts, we are all unique. We are not meant to look the same regardless of what the current fashion or fitness trends promote.

I embrace the Ayurveda approach to help our understanding of body and mind.

Singapore Mindfulness Talk

This week I am sharing some highlights from my Singapore mindfulness talk. The talk was hosted, on 17 July, by Mahsuka Singapore Buddhist Centre and was well attended by friends of the centre and monks from Serang Monastery, Nepal. The talk, which was translated into Tibetan by Nuptul Rinpoche, explored how Western Science and Eastern wisdom can work together. Mindfulness is central to making choices that best suit your current requirements.
