Did you know that women with a fuller spiritual life also report a more satisfying sex life, and score higher on well-being indices? As a traditionally trained doctor, I was taught to focus on vital signs and physical symptoms, ignoring my patients’ feelings of holistic wellness. But being well is much more than having a healthy body and good “numbers.” It requires a mind-body connection and discovering that our “heart feelings” or “gut feelings” may contain our greatest sources of wisdom, contentment and connection. We all want to be happy and to live in peace and harmony, but for many of us, it’s not working. We might feel stuck in wondering why the world is happening “to me,” instead of feeling empowered that our world is really happening “by me.” While most of us are focusing on eating right and going to the gym, what are we doing to exercise and grow our spiritual being? The truth is, happiness is not dependent on external circumstances. It requires sitting still and examining ourselves with love and compassion, abandoning old habits that are harmful and adopting new ones. It’s a lifelong journey. Join me on my mission to optimize mind-body wellness and deepen your connection with your higher power.
“ Spirituality is recognizing and celebrating that we are all inextricably connected by a power greater than all of us, and that connection to that power and to one another is grounded in love and compassion.”
Why do some women over 40, or over 60, have the joyful sexual energy of a 20-year-old, while most of us feel our libido slipping away? Our culture tells that women over 50 are not sexy, not relevant, and are on a sexual downhill march to the grave. My own experience as a menopausal woman combined with extensive research blows the lid off this harmful cultural myth. Let me introduce you to the “Sexually Woke”- women in midlife who are having the best sex of their lives- and teach you how to wake up to the time of your life as well.
Talk of the week
There is no question that the single most important factor preventing the developing world from moving forward is a lack of education. This is particularly true for girls and women who are marginalized in most developing countries and have limited educational opportunities. A fantastic book addressing this and other issues facing women in the developing world that all women in the “first world” should read is “Half the Sky” by Nicholas Kristoff.
Talks to awaken your sexy-self and challenge the status quo.
