September 18, 2017

Throughout our series, we’ve discussed the signs and symptoms of issues like fatigue, stress, depression and lack of focus that permeate the daily lives of many Americans.

Staying Focused in a World of Distractions

August 24, 2017

The Digital Revolution has, no doubt, had its perks. Still, being connected to everyone and everything comes with real downsides – particularly, the fact its nearly impossible to “turn off”. Work emails now follow us long after we leave the office, and social media updates flash across our screens all day, every day. The distractions […]

August 1, 2017

We all know how important it is to take time for ourselves, whether it be with a yoga class, a short walk in nature or just sitting in silence for a few minutes. That being said, for most people, making time to prioritize our well-being is much easier said than done. At Deep Root Medicine, […]

Breathing and Resilience

July 17, 2017

Breathing and Resilience I want to talk a little bit about breathing. Not yet another lecture about how to breathe properly, nor why you should let your focus stay on your breathing sometimes, though, also here, we will circle back.

Rest and Creativity

May 8, 2017

Clarity of Mind Clarity of mind, of spirit, even a clear-and-lightness of our bodies, is a necessary prerequisite for peace, for joy, for committed and effective engagement with others, with the world, and especially with our own lives. Dampness In the tradition of medicine I study, one of the principle pathogenic factors is translated as “Dampness.” […]

UF is holding it’s 4th Annual UF Health Integrative Medicine Conference this weekend, and I have an opportunity to table for Dragon Rises College in the exhibits area, which is really an honor and a privilege (even if it means giving up a Saturday!).

Metal Phase in Dragon Rises Red Bird Flies

April 25, 2017

The Metal Phase transforms bonds, and so it is fitting that this series of posts comes to an end here, transforming this cycle into something, at least for the moment, complete.
