Conscious Fertility

Nov 8, 2022

Healing ourselves starts from within. And when we tap into our consciousness, we can heal ourselves in ways that rival traditional medical practice. 

Today’s guest is Dr. Shamini Jain, a scientist, psychologist, author, and teacher of healing and integrative medicine. She’ll teach us how the mind, body, emotion, social, interpersonal, and even environmental connections that we have as human beings are incredibly powerful in fostering healing.

She shares her research and clinical studies about how moving energy through the body with practices like breathwork, meditation, tai chi, and yoga can reduce inflammation and stress, and help us find wholeness within ourselves. 

There’s actually not a big divide between science and spirituality, and with the help of Dr. Shamini’s research, we’re moving closer to being able to measure actual positive outcomes from committing to conscious work.
