Humans have the opportunity to make the shift now from fear-focused, adrenaline-fueled living to full-body-intelligent living. Body intelligence expands our perspective beyond fear to the rich, millennia-long wisdom we carry in our cells. BQ includes all feelings and inner experience, informs responsive choices, heightens well-being, and opens perception based on curiosity and possibility rather than scarcity and prejudice. BQ allows us to connect deeply with our essence and the flow of life that sparks genuine appreciation and collaboration with others.

Giving apartments to homeless people who’ve been on the streets for years before they’ve received treatment for drug or alcohol problems or mental illness may not sound like a wise idea. But that’s what’s being done in cities across America in an approach that targets those who’ve been homeless the longest and are believed to be at greatest risk of dying, especially with all of this cold weather.
They’re people who once might have been viewed as unreachable. But cities and counties affiliated with a movement known as the 100,000 Homes Campaign have so far managed to get 80,000 of them off the streets. Local governments and non-profit groups do most of the work. The money comes mostly from existing federal programs and private donations, and there’s evidence that this approach saves taxpayers money.
A recent interview with Dr. Brene Brown featured in Origin Magazine and reprinted in The Huffington Post explored the role practice plays in living an authentic, vulnerable, and conscious life.
Brown talks about the importance of connection to other likeminded people as a prerequisite for living a full life, as well as how important it is to trust yourself, your body and your daily needs over the easier, more well-known choice of doing what we feel is expected of us.
She offers a great reminder that authenticity is a choice and one that sometimes needs to be made multiple times in a day – even multiple times in an hour. As Brown explains it, everyone has the capacity to be authentic, but the authentic ones are those who practice very hard and step into the arena to be seen, despite the potential for failure.
Authenticity Must Be Practiced.
