"Mindfulness is like a multi-faceted diamond that looks different depending on which facet you reflect."

~ Dr. Stephen McKenzie and Dr. Craig Hassed

Have you ever witnessed firsthand your mind-body connection? Many people who have overcome seemingly insurmountable health odds claim that tapping into their mind-body connection cured them of serious disease and illness. This week, you''' explore epigenetics and how mindfulness and meditation can help manage your gene expression. This week, you're in for a treat! I share with you the full 30-minute guided meditations I share on the Sip and Om meditation app. This week's series was recorded several years ago. It was a fun series to research. We'll be following along with the movie, "The Connection," by Shannon Harvey, an Australian journalist and filmmaker.

This is day 1 of a 7-day meditation series, Manage Gene Expression, episodes 632-638.
