"There's a wellness revolution going on, but creating real global change depends on one thing: you.
Such was the conclusion of Arianna Huffington and Dr. Frank Lipman, who spoke Thursday as part of Urban Zen NYC's "Conversations on Sustainable Wellness" series.
During the hour and a half talk, Dr. Lipman and Arianna made the case for a wellness revolution that would not only transform individual lives -- in body, mind and spirit -- but would even help solve the health care crisis in the United States. Dr. Lipman, who is the founder of the Eleven Eleven Wellness Center and a long-time HuffPost blogger, ended the night's discussion by answering his own opening question: How do we get the revolution out there?
'The wellness revolution,' he said, 'starts with a personal revolution.'
You have a choice: Drive yourself into the ground or start making different, better choices. Our culture has made unhealthy decisions the default. Today, we need to build toward a critical mass of wellness-consciousness.
Dr. Lipman says Arianna has given a voice to the integrative medicine world and helped begin the revolution.
'For me, it's not just the detoxification of the body, it's the detoxification of the mind,' Huffington said. And during the conversation, she and Dr. Lipman described some key practices for attaining such holistic healing.
With the Internet and organizations like Urban Zen, we don't have to wait. The information -- the wisdom -- is available. We have the power to revolutionize wellness now.
Now, if only we had that GPS for the soul..."
Could not have said it any better, and in fact, I didn't!
One can only dream of a world where health and happiness are the default. Happy Tuesday
