"Optimal physical and emotional functioning involves a state of balance and harmony between our minds and our bodies. We need to work at being healthy, not merely prevent ourselves from getting sick".
"The relationship between the mind and the body can be antagonistic as well as distant. Many of us are oblivious to feedback and coercive toward our bodies".
"We have been taught to believe that the mind and the body are separate and that our corporal selves are inferior to our intellectual selves".
"We flourish when we take great care of ourselves, connect with spirituality, widen our moral imaginations, cultivate ethical accountability and live authentically."
