How to Achieve Enduring Health and Vitality

For more than thirty years, John W. Travis, M.D., and Regina Sara Ryan have taught hundreds of thousands of people a practical whole-self approach to wellness and healthy living. Each chapter of the comprehensive WELLNESS WORKBOOK explores one of the twelve interconnected forms of energy that contribute to your overall health and vitality: Self-Responsibility and Love‚ Breathing‚ Sensing‚ Eating‚ Moving‚ Feeling‚ Thinking‚ Playing and Working‚ Communicating‚ Sex‚ Finding Meaning‚ and Transcending.
From how you breathe to how you view the world, these twelve areas affect all aspects of your life: your disposition toward injury and illness, your relationships, your general level of happiness, and beyond. In an optimal state of wellness, all of your energies are in balance, and you are less prone to disease, stress, and other life-depleting factors. Using a self-assessment tool known as the Wellness Index, you'll develop a clear picture of what areas in your life need attention. Now in its third edition, the thoroughly updated and streamlined WELLNESS WORKBOOK provides hundreds of exercises and ideas to help you take control of your health and happiness. A classic text in the wellness field, thoroughly revised and updated, and streamlined for a more simple and practical presentation. Chapters cover self-responsibility and love, breathing, sensing, eating, moving, feeling, thinking, playing and working, communicating, sex, finding meaning, and transcending.

A Celestial Arts title.

About the Authors

John W. Travis

John W. Travis, MD, MPH completed his medical degree at Tufts University in 1969, and a preventive medicine residency at Johns Hopkins University in 1973. In 1975, he opened the world’s first wellness center, the Wellness Resource Center in Mill Valley, California. His work attracted national attention, culminating in an appearance on 60 Minutes with Dan Rather in 1979. In 1979, the Wellness Center was transformed into a non-profit educational corporation dedicated to transforming the medical culture from its focus on doctor-as-unassailable-expert to a partnership with healers. John continues to lecture and give workshops around the world to help professionals develop the techniques and processes pioneered by the Wellness Resource Center staff. In 1991, John changed the focus of his work to infant wellness and became a co-founder of Alliance for Transforming the Lives of Children (www.aTLC.org), which fosters individual and planetary wellness through changing how babies are born and treated in their early years. Regina Sara Ryan is currently a professional writer and editor. She is a former instructor at Prescott College, Prescott, Arizona (1989-1995), and remains a graduate advisor in the fields of theology and psychology. Regina is the co-author of the Wellness Workbook, and Simply Well, Choices for Healthy Life with John W. Travis, MD, and the author of No Child In My Life; Everywoman's Book of Common Wisdom; The Woman Awake: Feminine Wisdom for Spiritual Life, After Surgery, Illness, or Trauma: 10 Practical Steps to Renewed Energy and Health, and Praying Dangerously: Radical Reliance on God. She lives in Paulden, Arizona with her husband of more than thirty years and two young honorary grandchildren.
