The Lucas Rockwood Show

Chronic pain can be debilitating, so we often look for ways to mask or medicate the symptoms. Unfortunately, the medical approach to pain management can sometimes lead to even worse problems. There is now a growing body of research showing the efficacy of mindfulness practices where you literally observe and accept your pain, rather than cover it up. It isn’t a panacea, but the clinical results are significant enough that mindfulness is now increasingly being integrated into hospital approaches. This week's guest is a medical doctor turned mindfulness teacher and trainer. 

Listen and learn:

  • How mindfulness can help you separate yourself from your pain
  • Why we tend to mask and medicate rather than confront pain challenges
  • The importance of natural, non-pharmaceutical interventions
  • How mindfulness can be practiced in a secular way or easily integrated into your existing faith
