Dr. Judith discusses with special guest Amy Stein, a Herbalist, Energy Medicine and Trauma Informed Breathwork Facilitator, in Part II on Quieting the External and Internal Noise to be able to listen to one’s body's wisdom and discusses re-connecting back to the body. She shares the origins of holistic medicine, which has been on the planet longer than Western "traditional" Medicine and gives suggestions for processing and sitting with the sensations of the body’s innate intelligence. Amy aptly states, "The wisdom of the body is much bigger than the energy field of the brain/mind."

She shares what she learned in quieting her external and internal noise to achieve her current way of being.
Dr. Judith shares her meditation experience and the importance of centering for those walking a spiritual path. She takes the seeker through a guided meditative practice that can be done when the seeker needs a quick recharge, especially during or after a busy, long day. It is eighteen minutes and something you can incorporate into your schedule. Dr. Judith suggests listening to the entire episode first and then trying the practice once you are familiar with the directed meditation. The seeker can advance the audio to 10 minutes into the episode to move through the guided meditation. She mentions at the end of this episode she plans to do a longer similar guided meditation and will post the longer episode in the upcoming months. Enjoy. Be well.
