Musing on Bodywork

Carbon Dioxide, Water, Light

Carbon Dioxide, Water, Light - My daughter’s rendering of photosynthesis has me contemplating the essentials for growth and change…perhaps the miraculous act of converting CO2, water and light into the energy for success could be construed as actualization. Got to love plants: 3 essential things to become all that they can be. The body of work that is Orthobionomy has a few more than 3 essential things but not as many as one might think. Because we work with every body system (all 11…) and on vertical layers as well as beyond, the complexity can be and was daunting to me. Enter the essentials in Ortho which are very clear…it is a principle based work and if we work within the principles, or essentials, then the body will have a chance to heal. As I mentioned, there are more than 3 and some are easier for me to integrate than others on any given day. Today: Less is More. Carbon Dioxide, Water, Light. Plant wisdom.

“Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials. “ Lin Yutang
