Easy Stress Reduction in 12 Minutes

Stress makes our lives difficult. We hear a lot about the necessity of stress reduction. Why? Being stressed continuously leads to becoming anxious and nervous and this is not a good way to live: it increases the probability of getting sick, of making bad decisions, of ageing quicker and of getting unhappy or even depressed. You might think: "I am just a person who is easily stressed and anxious, I cannot do anything about that". No! This is not true. You can do A LOT about it and it "costs" you only 12 minutes per day! Recently we had Dr.Helen Lavretsky as guest in our Wisdom Factory Series "CONSCIOUS AGEING" where she shared with us the results of her research about RESILIENCE, the ability to live our lives in a good and satisfying [...]

What can Men Do When Getting Older? – Dr. Oren Amitay in The Wisdom Factory

Age and Ageing: a challenge also for men The problems of women getting older are widely discussed.

It seems to make them even more attractive, often to much younger women who might see the father in them which they had never had in their young years. So why bother about men getting older?

Spiritual lessons that ripen with age – a conversation with Terry Patten

Life is a journey. We all know that the more we are walking along the path, one day after the other, from one year to the next, until we find ourselves "old". When that point comes in life is different for everyone, but some day there comes the recognition that we have gone ahead, that our life has changed and with that the way we are living it and the expectations and ideas we have about it. Some of us might have started a spiritual journey in early years. Religious beliefs were available to us from childhood and since the 60ies of the past century also what we call “spirituality”.

Longevity can be learned

Getting older is inevitable - but how you age is not Every year SAND (Science and Non-Duality) is organising a conference in USA and here in Italy, not far from where I live. Fortunately, many contributions are published on YouTube and lately we found this one about AGEING. The tendency of us humans to believe in the stories which our culture teaches us and then behave accordingly is not yet recognized fully. The talk by Mario Martinez (watch the video above) shows it very clearly and encourages us to "change our minds", literally.
