Raghu Markus – Mindrolling – Ep. 491 -The Mind-Body Connection with Shamini Jain, Ph.D

Dr. Shamini Jain connects with Raghu Markus to discuss harmonizing our autonomic nervous system via an integration of the mind and body.

“What we know now is that our emotions have a deep effect on our physiology; they’re very interconnected. We can create health simply with our breathing, with our connection with energy, with our connection with a deeper core of who we are.” – Shamini Jain, Ph.D 

In this episode of Mindrolling, Raghu talks with Dr. Shamini Jain about:
  • The multiple ways to experience God within our consciousness
  • Jainism and the main tenant of non-violence
  • The nature of vibration and its relationship to the healing process
  • Psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) and the mind-body connection
  • How we can prevent disease by harmonizing our autonomic nervous system
  • The subtlety of sound and Dr. Shamini’s research on using music to heal
  • Reiki, Chi Gong, meditation and other traditions of vibrational practices

“If you transform polarization inside yourself, you probably transform the development of cells that are in opposition to each other.” – Raghu Markus
