A barefoot approach

Posted by JM on Jun 21, 2012

Going barefoot increases our contact with the earth and environment we walk through. Without shoes, our feet have the chance to use their highly developed sensitivity. We’re forced to become more aware and awake in whatever we do. Being conscious of every move and step, treading carefully, rather than letting an external tool cushion us, as we charge through life.

A barefoot approach to medicine is the same. Taking a barefoot approach means:

  • Stripping down to the essentials
  • Removing artifice and pretense
  • Taking greater care in what we do and how we do it
  • Accepting responsibility
  • Thinking simply and sustainably
  • Using our inbuilt sensitivity
  • Reconnecting with our surroundings
