Meeting extraordinary people like Laura Probert is my favorite part of producing these JournalTalk podcast episodes.
A black belt in taekwondo, Laura is trained in physical therapy, and calls herself a warrior healing expert. She wrote about her own healing journey in Living, Healing and Taekwondo, and today, she is a teacher for people who are fed up with pain and fear. She is the owner of Bodyworks Physical Therapy (her own private physical therapy practice), and Soul Camp, a company that helps you redefine healing. I enjoyed our conversation about the interconnectedness of all things, especially our mind and body! I learned a few things about myofascial tissue and acupuncture.
You’ll love the journal-writing and body awareness activity that Laura shares. For me, it was a reminder that writing is not only a thinking activity, but also a doorway into our whole body-mind awareness. Writing can be just as much a connection to ourselves at it is a release of ourselves.
I was deeply moved by “Quantum Leap”, the poem Laura wrote which launched a series of beautiful, printed journal notebooks that contain awe-inspiring artwork and poetry from a variety of authors. She even inspired me to contribute my own poem, which appears in the third book of the series, Warrior Soul.
