This morning, I was reflecting on how fragmented the world is right now. We tend to compartmentalize everything: our body, time, activities, or relationships. Our lack of integrated functioning affects all aspects of our life and our world.

We are all subjects to unconscious habits corrupting how we move and what we do. We are all subjects to unconscious psyche parts controlling what we think, and how we feel and behave. The more unconscious we are on any level, the more life or our body seem to not cooperate towards us blossoming into our best potential.

Do you feel discouraged sometimes with what’s happening right now? Do you feel stressed but you don’t know how to step out of the cycle? Do you feel alone, not heard, not seen, understood, or loved? Or do you have chronic tension or pain that persist no matter what you try?

Sad, discouraged, reflective

The good thing is that when you start, wherever you can, to progress towards integrated functioning of mind, body, heart and soul, it spreads to all areas of life.

So, if you feel that you are sick and tired of feeling this way…
If you feel you have tried everything without getting results or sustainable results…
If you are challenged by poor posture and its related issues…
If you live in your head more than your body….
Or you easily get tired without knowing why.

Then, know that attending to how you function as the integrated whole that you are is key to solving your challenges. “Integrated Functioning” is not a common expression because it is the missing piece of modern fitness and modern living. The fact is it is even core to optimal wellbeing!

Integrated Functioning is the solution to solve your recurring tension or pain by addressing how organic or not your movement and posture are. It has nothing to do with positioning yourself into what you think “good posture ” is.
When you function as the integrated being that you are, you reclaim natural good posture, you breathe better, you digest better, you think more clearly, you experience your emotions without losing your center – your whole life improves. You can smile and anticipate the best for yourself!

How do I know that?

For 30 years, I have been guiding others to function as the integrated whole that they are as a way to free them from chronic tension or pain. Even though I used to have chronic headaches and neck tension, I have been free from chronic tension for decades. Even though I started life as a disembodied teenager and young adult, I am now teaching others to be more embodied, and even enjoy integrated embodiment.

If I can do it, anyone who wants to can!

That is why I am passionate to help others who suffer from chronic tension or pain, poor posture, and a tendency to live in their head rather than their body. My heart goes out to them because I have been there and I know we cannot ignore our body and not pay a price for it sooner or later.

That is also why, I created a foundational online course “Activate Your Body Intelligence” to guide more people into the first necessary steps of integrated embodiment leading to increased wellbeing.
