Integrating Mind and Body
"Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom" – Aristotle
“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom” a phrase coined by Aristotle centuries ago seems pertinent in today’s hectic world. As these modern times continue to discharge stress, anxiety and uncertainty, it is critical that you be aware of these obstacles and learn to keep your health at an optimal level. Our well-being, however, encompasses more than just our blood pressure levels, hygiene, and other metrics.
With a focus on integrating various aspects of our health, Ludmila Golovine will be hosting a discussion with Dr. Alejandro Chaoul, Dr. Wenli Liu, and Dr. Seema Thekdi to discern how these elements influence our overall welfare. With our three presenters inserting the nutritional, mind/spiritual, and psychological viewpoints, the conversation seeks to further develop the established discourse of improving our mind-body connection for better emotional health.
