I have had the privilege of being a participant of the first 8 Week Simply Whole Journey that @ashfrankel and @lizbparenting have created, and it’s been such an amazing, beautiful & insightful experience
SIMPLY WHOLE // This manifesto was created based off the words of 10 courageous women as they began their Simply Whole Journey 8 weeks ago.
The Simply Whole Journey:
An 8-week experience for mothers, coming together to peel back the layers, to explore the dark + the light, to reconnect to their essence. When @lizbparenting and I felt called to create this experience, we could not have imagined just how special it would be. Holding space for women to come together and journey to wholeness is one of the most valued experiences of my life. Our last gathering is in 1 week. But there is no end, really. The relationships and the learnings and transformations are just beginning.
We will be running the 2nd SWJ in September. There are 6 spots available. If you are interested in learning more, please reach out. I would love to connect. Xx Ash

Your bout of low back pain is over, congratulations, you made it through! Now what? If you were paying attention 😉, I mentioned one of the greatest predictors of low back pain is history of low back pain. So, I'm sorry to say folks, you aren't quite out of the woods.
You may not be able to alter the genetic components that predispose you to low back pain but you bet your butt you can have an impact on the more important aspects.
The physical piece of the pie, to me, is comprised of two aspects: creating resiliency and minimizing threat. Creating RESILIENCY means getting that core in shape and not in the Zac Efron washboard abs kinda way. I'm talking about core activation and your ability to control your torso through several different positions and loads. Minimizing THREAT is about back education and understanding what positions and prolonged postures put us at greater risk as well as what positions are safe and protective.
The psychological aspect, in my opinion, trumps. Learn how pain works, what it means, when it can be deceptive. Cliché level 1000: "We always fear what we don't understand." Don't fear pain, understand it.
Thanks for reading, friends. Have a spectacular sun-filled weekend!
