Dr.Robert Heller’s Mind-Body Newsletter
The recent tragedy of the bombings at the Boston Marathon highlights both the best and worst in the human race and how quickly and easily we can brainwash ourselves or be brainwashed by others to do either heinous or heroic things.
Many of us are TOO easily influenced by the opinions and beliefs of others and have not learned to question their assumptions and conclusions. In Rational Emotive Therapy we are taught and teach others the scientific methods of looking for evidence and of being highly cautious and suspicious of extreme ways of thinking and talking. Whether the younger brother was excessively influenced by a radical cleric, mother or older brother, Rational Emotive Therapy might have taught the younger brother how to question some of the rhetoric, assumptions and conclusions and perhaps taken a different direction.
The lessons of Boston also teach us to be vigilant of our own thoughts, feelings and behaviors particularly when we steer way from long held beliefs and behaviors.

Whether you are a young athlete looking for a winning edge or a super senior looking to reduce the risk of falling, the ancient art of Tai Chi may be for you. Often considered, “Meditation in Motion,” the slow dance-like movement patterns provide an opportunity to increase awareness and control of mind and body. As a Holistic psychologist, Dr. Heller incorporates principles and simple movements from Tai Chi to help clients improve physically and emotionally.
