I believe that the organism of the body is our greatest tool for gaining and maintaining health and overall wellbeing. All of our thoughts, feelings, traumas, and the stories of our lives are housed in the physical body itself - organs, bones, flesh and all. Without learning how to listen to the body and follow its natural flow for healing and regeneration, the body can suffer from neurosis, physical illness and even cellular dysfunction. ~Daphne
