    Breathing into the belly - one of the easiest protective factors

    Breathing into the belly - one of the easiest protective factors

    Join us in this great conversation with Terra Scott from Terra Sol Healing Arts. Terra is an integrative healing artist, which means she uses techniques and tools she has gathered along her journey to meet the needs of clients and to truly get to and address the root cause of disease.
    “I am an artist and I am a healer, but the true message is that healing is an art and we are never healed or unhealed but in a constant state of healing. I create safe sacred spaces for pain to be felt, processed and transmuted. When we quit suppressing and instead feel and practice breath work, we come down from the panic of the mind and back into the body, and our spirit wakes as well.”
    Terra shares some easy techniques to implement as protective factors as well as a little surprise at the end of the episode! You can find her at https://www.terrasolhealingarts.com. As always please email us at KPCTeam@wichita.edu for any feedback. Thanks for listening!
