I believe that there is no separation of body, mind and emotions. Thoughts, feelings, attitudes and belief systems all affect your physical well being in the same way that a dysfunction in your body can affect your mental well being.

Keeping healthy means therefore not only your physical health but also your mental and spiritual health. Finding meaning and a sense of purpose in life is an important part of your prescription for wellness.

One of my guiding principles in life is based on the notion of Ubuntu, an African word meaning what us makes us human is the humanity we show each other. Ubuntu is a belief in the universal bond of sharing that unites all humanity. It is a concept that is similar to what we know as compassion – compassion for ourselves, our family, our community, the global community and the earth.

In this section you will find posts on Ubuntu, stress reduction, relaxation, meditation and spiritual well-being.
