Human Heart Cosmic Heart
The journey of resurrecting the truth of our Heart (and heart disease)
Today was a huge day in my world as I had the immense privilege of interviewing Dr. Cowan (a hero of mine, author of Four Fold Path to Healing with THE Sally Fallon) and one of the few practicing anthroposophical MDs in the U.S. He’s a gem. An intellectual giant hermit of a gem! But a gem nonetheless.
Our brief hour together was truly mind bending stuff. As Full Circle Wellness Warriors I know you’ll feel into the truth (and your own truth) about these statements….but let’s start with this….
- The heart is not simply a pump
- Heart disease / attacks are not “caused” by plaque or arterial “build up”
- There are FOUR, not three (as we are taught), phases of water (and this is KEY to understanding what the heart actually IS and does
- The journey of humanity and holistic health right now is being informed by the MIS-information we have had about our very own energetic brain – our heart.
It’s time to get to know our HEARTS my friends.
In this interview Dr. Cowan takes us in depth into his research about the actual function and process of the heart. And shares with us new approaches for understanding and appreciating this precious organ and its needs in powerful, new (or reemerging ways).
With love and gratitude, xo L
