In These Pandemic Times

IMG_9672.jpeg

In these pandemic times, my thoughts, prayers, and heart are with all who are sick, in fear, confused — here and around the world.

In Italy, a well-respected physician, the head of a medical association, has succumbed. Overwhelmed doctors triage patients in hospitals as in wartime, prioritizing treatment to those who have the best chance of survival. The country’s mortality rate from the virus increased in 24 hours by at least 31% to 827; its population of 60 million in lockdown.

The CDC’s Anthony Fauci reports that the COVID-19 death rate is ten times that of the flu. Scary, dystopian times, indeed. Some people are sick of hearing about it, but turning away or panicking won’t solve it. Facing it and heeding the warnings will. The gravity of it, after all, is nothing to sneeze at.

Of course, I’m washing my hands, socially distancing, staying at home, writing, hanging out on social media in communication with you all, and pleased that I can offer headache and somatic coaching sessions by video cam. Yesterday, I delighted in ye olde joy of my youth: talking on the telephone. Someone I knew only online called me, in an “accidental” butt dial, and we spent a couple of hours deep in discussion. It was great!

In closing: Be well. Stay centered. Breathe.

With blessings, peace, and love to you,

“I have followed Jan Mundo’s work for many years and have found it not only useful but profound. Although the focus of the book is on headaches, it speaks to a much bigger subject: the quality of our relationship with our feelings our minds, and our bodies.”

Retailing Insight Magazine Book Review

Screen Shot 2018-07-31 at 11.27.23 AM

My book, The Headache Healer’s Handbook, received a really wonderful review, I’m touched by it — and I’m in very fine company:

“This book is first and foremost a testament to the mind/body connection and how an awareness of that connection can literally change your life. It begins by dealing with the physical. It contains an analysis of headache triggers, cutting-edge diet suggestions, and a detailed section on keeping a Headache Diary. Moving toward the world of mindfulness, it next offers a whole chapter on breathing. Finally, the book arrives at mindfulness/meditation practice. This down-to-earth, comprehensive discussion is followed by sections on touch healing and connecting with core issues like trauma and embodied wisdom. Let your customers know that if they only get as far as the mindfulness chapter, they will have gotten their money’s worth. The rest of the book is icing on the cake, and very special icing it is.”
