“You can’t separate mind from body. You can’t isolate the two. They are inextricably connected and they correlate with each other.” [3:49]

“We have no control over what’s happening. And that, I think, is the hardest thing for people to accept. They have to surrender to what’s happening. It’s a brilliant time, an inconvenient time, but a brilliant time to reassess some of the practices and habits that we have.” [17:34]

“The only cure for a hyper-stimulated nervous system is reducing inputs and inducing states of rest.” [24:20]

“There is no magic wand for the one thing that’s going to help people navigate through this. It’s going to be a bunch of little things that you put into practice daily.” [32:59]
