Chiropractic Connections

By John Marc, Pathways Magazine Editor The Electrical Nature of the Body Honoring the electrical nature of the human being invites us to explore our heart’s magnetic field and the potential it has to create coherence in our mind and life.

But when we begin to view the world around us through the heart, the ‘parts’ of our body dissolve, along with the objects and people around us, into a unified field of wholeness.
