    #gutbacteria #genetics #biohackerslab

    Tim is very passionate about the relationship between our genes, the microbiome and health and nutrition.

    Diet and nutrition are a complex issue encompassing numerous factors. How one person responds to a certain food can vary greatly to another, even with closely related individuals.

    Tim’s study with identical twins really illustrates this point perfectly and sheds some light on factors that affect our health and how we respond to foods.

  7. Equanimity: The Gifts of Non-Reactive Mindful Presence, with Tara Brach

    Equanimity: The Gifts of Non-Reactive Mindful Presence, with Tara Brach [2020-09-30]

    If we want to bring our intelligence, creativity and love into our relationships and world, we need to be able to access an inner refuge of presence. This talk explores how, when we’re reacting from anger, clinging or fear, to pause, reconnect to the immediate experience of “just this” and remember the love and awareness that has room for the changing waves of life.
