1. "The most beautiful people we have known are those who have experienced defeat, suffering, struggle and loss and have found their way out of those depths." —Elisabeth Kübler Ross

2.“Vast amounts of biomedical research now indicate that our feelings, beliefs, attitudes, spiritual life, and physical well-being are closely intertwined. In addition, researchers have found complex links between the body and the mind and have established a common language between organs and emotional responses.” – (Exploring the Mind-Body Connection: Therapeutic Practices and Techniques, 2013)

3.“As Hippocrates once wrote, ‘The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well.’ This is mind-body medicine in a nutshell. . . .  Mind-body techniques can be helpful for many conditions because they encourage relaxation, improve coping skills, reduce tension and pain, and lessen the need for medication.” – University of Maryland Medical Center (article available on the web material additional resource page)

4. “It is who and what we are in relationship to that support our wellbeing as much as any drug or therapy.”   —Richard Groves
