2017: Overview

Our 2017 Focus: Consciousness, Self-Discovery and Everyday Health

No one exists in isolation. Deep within our consciousness, we understand that at the energetic level everything is connected. Consciousness connects to everything. When you think of consciousness, you probably associate it with the mind; when you think of self-discovery perhaps you think of Spirit and purpose.  And, of course, when you think of everyday health, you think of the body and its many functions. Each is dependent on the other for higher processing. It is through consciousness and self-discovery we recognize how to be in our lives. This year, we turn our sites to self-discovery and how the integrity of an individual’s body, mind and spirit can lead to genuine health.

OverviewPursuing this path means we continually separate what can never be separated.  

Today, modern science tells us everything is energy; it also tells us that, at the deepest level of reality, in the energy field, everything is connected. Separation is an illusion. At Building Bridges for TCM, we are committed to helping healthcare professionals recognize that we can no longer ignore this astonishing fact: we are all energy beings!

Traditional Chinese medicine—a by-product of a spiritual practice—has also been based on a profound, multidimensional understanding of energy or Qi for thousands of years. Simply put, without Qi there is no life. Qi is the intelligent Universal force of wisdom, consciousness and purpose. We too have consciousness and purpose! Spirit is involved in each action. In the truest sense, this wisdom has everything to do with everyday health. If so, then how do we apply Oneness and consciousness to enrich our lives and that of our patients?
