The Body

Life is a human matrix and the body is but one part of the whole.  Each element needs to be balanced, connected and fulfilled for overall health.

~ Body ~

~ Mind ~

~ Heart ~

~ Soul ~

~ Spirit ~

The body, mind, heart, soul and spirit are the part of our holistic existence which the A.R.T. Project seeks to affirm and balance.

The health of each of these attributes affects the holistic health of the individual. The body needs to be nurtured along with each of the other components of the identity matrix. 

The essential truths or guiding principles are intentionally embraced so that we can develop each of these attributes to their healthiest potential.

Your core truths and values are ones that you carry with you through all life experiences. They bring out your authenticity and integrity.

Your stream of consciousness holds it all together.

the bridge between the earth and the spirit world

As spiritual beings, we are having human experiences. It’s essential that the physical vessels that are our homes stay healthy and vital.

Physical body and beyond

if we surrendered
to the earth’s intelligence

we could rise up rooted,
like trees…

~ Rainer Maria Rilke

Real, holistic healing involves grounding our psychological and spiritual discoveries into the physical reality of our existence
