Comments on Right Livelihood, or your natural work.

Job dissatisfaction is one of the root causes of anxiety, depression, and substance abuse for many. Wrong livelihood depletes your limited stores of energy, which affects your ability to discriminate and prioritize healthfully. You cannot fool your body and mind. You cannot fully bury your innate talents or your need to present them. Be aware of career satisfaction and its’ impact on your client.


Some healthful occupations


Mantra Meditation

Mindfulness Meditation

Tai Chi


Energy Work



Psychosocial Health is an activity, not a concept.

We all awake with a finite amount of focus, energy, and discernment. A balance of life-affirming occupations is required to live skillfully.

What are the Active Therapeutic Elements of the practices?

It is a good practice to try to understand the active elements of mind-body techniques.

The range of active elements of Integrative Health Practices is vast, and may not be intuitive.

A small sample includes muscle decontraction (also a motor skill), increased circulation, improved posture, positive self-talk, visualization, deep rest and renewal, increased and varied physical workload and facilitating a higher priority for self/Self-awareness.

Have a reason for the modalities that you use, and be able to explain it to others.

Some clients may experience increased confusion and discomfort, when asked to stay in the present moment through deep muscular relaxation and slow breathing. So teach with care, and remind clients that they may stop any activity at any time, and refuse to participate in anything that sounds disturbing. Report any risks to the safety of our patients/clients or others to the proper authorities.

As long as safety is not at issue, do not reject other students’ and therapists’ opinions on what are the most appropriate active elements to use for specific clients cases. Think about how they might be correct, why something might work. There is no better way to broaden your knowledge and keep it close at hand.
