Healing as a Process Not a Goal
We think of healing as having an end point, that someday our healing will be complete and our symptoms will be gone; but Bo Forbes encourages us to actually conceptualize healing as an ongoing process that we engage in over time. Thinking this way provides for an evolving dialogue within the mind-body network and allows for the more mature comprehension that healing is always happening. Forbes references a sense of integration that she describes as a luminosity among the different elements of our mind-body network and reminds us that we’re not simply a mind floating above everything. We have many other elements that all interface and dialogue with one another to express the intelligence that we are. Click on the video and join Forbes in exploring healing as a lifelong process.
