Part 1: The Magic of Relationships –Key to Healing, Joy, and Longevity
I initially considered entitling this presentation “Life Discoveries from One Who, Throughout Grade School, Consistently Failed ‘Works and Plays Well with Others’ and ‘Respects the Rights of Others’.”
As the years passed, as I experienced the constant progression of people approaching, lingering for a while, and then moving away, I began to get the distinct feeling that someone, somewhere, was trying to communicate with me.
Then, suddenly, reality dawned! Relationships really are magic! Science has shown us that:
When epidemics (and pandemics) strike, those with close friendships have a better immune response, a critical factor in survival.
People with serious illnesses heal faster when they have warm and loving relationships. Studies show that even cancer patients present with less metastatic disease and are less likely to die of their disease.
People with warm social relationships have longer telomeres, leading to longer and healthier lives. In animal studies, social isolation and exposure to social stress are associated with greater telomere shortening.”
And happiness? The amazing Harvard Study of Adult Development followed nearly 1000 men from their teens to their 90s and concluded that there is a strong link between happiness and close relationships with family and friends.
In this webinar, you will discover why relationships became so important to animals and humans and how the need for relationships is programmed into our nervous system. You will learn the central importance of love and the creation of success, happiness, and health and see how most illnesses result from our resistance to love.
You will learn a simple communication formula for transforming troublesome relationships into rewarding ones and experience how to apply these principles to your life through deep relaxation, mindfulness, meditation, and mental image rehearsal.
“My 50 years of experience as a physician studying the holistic approach to medicine and healing, have convinced me that our medical system is not focused on healing our bodies, minds, emotions, and behaviors. Instead, its primary focus is to charge the highest possible prices for delivering symptomatic relief. (Note: I am speaking of the system, not the doctors). Its goal is to treat the symptoms of our illnesses, not the source of our illnesses.”
