It’s not about your resources, it’s about your resourcefulness. Tony Robbins, motivational speaker and life coach
Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Eckhart Tolle, spiritual teacher and bestselling author
Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. Bruce Lee, martial artist and actor
The EZENFLOW philosophy is well encapsulated within these three quotes. Being resourceful means making use of what is available to creatively overcome our challenges. To see clearly what we already have and to maximize it, we must remain in the moment. And to overcome unexpected obstacles, we must be adaptable and maliable like water.
Eckhart Tolle teaches us that, physically, we are occurring here and now. This now-moment is the source through which we, with our five senses, experience life. An essential component of our physical body is the place through which all of our limbs extend – our core. It is vital that our core and abdominal region is stable and capable of protecting the delicate interweaving of our nervous and organ systems. The effectiveness of our arms relies on the stability of their root in the shoulder girdle, seamlessly connected to our core. Practicing a keen awareness of the present moment – here and now – leads to improvement in our own awareness of our internal interconnectedness and wellbeing. Exercising our body allows us to reap the physical benefits of that awareness.
The source of our physical body is water. The human body is approximately 66.6% water (our blood and brains nearing 90%). We must drink plenty of it to keep our systems working efficiently. The food that nourishes our body and unlocks its greatest potential is the food that occurs most closely to its source. A diet abundant in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes – food that grows directly from Planet Earth – is a common denominator among communities who live the longest and healthiest lives.
What if we conducted the other aspects of our lives with respect to the nature of water? Consider Bruce Lee. To be resourceful is to go with life; not against it. To be like water. Eric’s in-the-moment coaching and guidance reflects this philosophy. Now consider Tony Robbins: your greatest resources are your mind and your physical body. Our resourcefulness is maximized through consistent in-moment awareness, functional movement, conscious eating, and abundant hydration. We have more than enough potential to grow beyond what we have previously believed possible.

"Qigong translates from Chinese to mean, roughly, to cultivate or enhance the inherent functional (energetic) essence of the human being. It is considered to be the contemporary offspring of some of the most ancient (before recorded history) healing and medical practices of Asia. Earliest forms of Qigong make up one of the historic roots of contemporary Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory and practice.2 Many branches of Qigong have a health and medical focus and have been refined for well over 5000 years. Qigong purportedly allows individuals to cultivate the natural force or energy (“Qi”) in TCM that is associated with physiological and psychological functionality. Qi is the conceptual foundation of TCM in acupuncture, herbal medicine and Chinese physical therapy. It is considered to be a ubiquitous resource of nature that sustains human well-being and assists in healing disease as well as (according to TCM theory) having fundamental influence on all life and even the orderly function of celestial mechanics and the laws of physics. Qigong exercises consist of a series of orchestrated practices including body posture/movement, breath practice, and meditation, all designed to enhance Qi function (that is, drawing upon natural forces to optimize and balance energy within) through the attainment of deeply focused and relaxed states. From the perspective of Western thought and science, Qigong practices activate naturally occurring physiological and psychological mechanisms of self-repair and health recovery. "
Research provides “varying levels of evidence for the efficacy for Qigong and Tai Chi, including bone health, cardiopulmonary fitness and related biomarkers, physical function, falls prevention and balance, general quality of life and patient reported outcomes, immunity, and psychological factors such as anxiety, depression and self-efficacy."
“...reported improvements in a number of immune-related blood markers, including total number of leukocytes, number of eosinophils, and number and percentage of monocytes, as well as the complement C3 levels following a 1-month Qigong intervention compared to usual care. Antibody levels in response to flu vaccinations were significantly increased among a Qigong group compared to usual care"
