Back pain, chronic or acute, seems to be ubiquitous in 21st century adults. Dr. John Sarno presents and interesting perspective on dealing with back pain. He proposes that we all carry with us negative energy from past emotional experiences that manifest in some of us as back pain(hence the anxiety girl in the picture!). If you think about this, what he is proposing relates directly with the chakra philosophy of energy (blocked first and second chakra energy). If you are someone who has back pain, you might want to explore this idea, especially if you have tried all other avenues of treatment.
Once a quarter we spend an practice specifically devoted to the back. Monday September 15,from 6:30-8 pm our practice will focus on a series of 17 poses designed to keep our backs supple and strong. Please join us at the UU Church of Fresno on Alluvial.
