Drawing on the concept of bodymind – that the physical body and the mind are interdependent and one – this section features resources, organizations & programs dedicated fostering this relationship. It is well documented that bodymind and mindfulness training help rewire the brain and reduce the suffering associated with pain if not eliminate pain altogether, so research and experimentation in this area are strongly recommended as a first step toward healing.
