  1. The Unique & Successful Connor Integrative Health Network at University Hospitals Is Not Your Typical Anything

    The Unique & Successful Connor Integrative Health Network at University Hospitals Is Not Your Typical Anything

    A new hospital department of Integrative Medicine can be vulnerable to becoming siloed and separate from general patient care.

    The genius of the Connor Integrative Network (CIHN) at University Hospitals of Cleveland is that, as a network, it can be everywhere, seamlessly woven into the fabric of everyday patient and employee care.

    Champions of Whole Health Care are either recruited from specialties at the hospital or are hired outright. They are first-rate providers, chosen for their expertise, skill, commitment, and compassion.

  2. Bodhipaksa's Step-by-Step Guide to Mindfulness

    Bodhipaksa's Step-by-Step Guide to Mindfulness

    We love Bodhipaksa. His mindfulness meditations add the perfect note of grace, beauty, kindness, and authenticity to our list, and his rich, Scottish-accented voice is profoundly pleasing and soothing to the ear. (You can hear an audio sample here.)  Here’s what he has to say about mindful walking meditation. 


    Almost anything we do can offer us an opportunity to practice mindfulness. The most mundane activities, such as unloading the dishwasher, driving, or grocery shopping, can become part of our spiritual practice.

  3. Keys to Success for Extinguishing Phobias: What Works on Fear of Flying, Spiders, Germs…

    Keys to Success for Extinguishing Phobias: What Works on Fear of Flying, Spiders, Germs…

    Here’s an inspiring and heartening story for you. We got this email from a woman who’d been suffering from a fear of flying that restricted her life and severely limited her options. She describes how a little therapy, some guided imagery and a couple of audios opened up her world again. Here she is:

    Dear Health Journeys and BR,

    I had to write and tell you this!!!!! I have been afraid of flying for many years, ever since I was a young teenager and we ran into some turbulence on a family plane trip to Mexico. Over the years, it has gotten worse rather than better. The fear became more and more pronounced.

    At work I was passed over for promotions in the past few years, because of my inability to travel. My social life and vacation choices were also limited. My fear was an embarrassment and I could not readily explain it. I believe it made me more shy around people and closed me off from sharing myself with others, for fear that the topic would come up.

  4. What You Don’t Know About Traci Stein PhD, the Voice We All Love

    What You Don’t Know About Traci Stein PhD, the Voice We All Love

    I first met Traci Stein in the late nineties when she was Mehmet Oz’s point person for mind-body research & evaluation at Columbia Presbyterian.

    In those pre-TV show days, Mehmet was trying out various techniques like guided imagery, when not inventing valves out of esoteric pig parts or doing CABG surgeries on beloved NY luminaries like Joe Torre, manager of the Yankees.

    Traci was amazing to work with from the very start – smart, diligent, accommodating, responsible, considerate, and insanely productive.
