Q. Recently I watched a documentary ("What the Bleep...") in which Candace Pert mentioned the “bodymind.” What is that?

A. Dr. Pert coined the term “bodymind” to emphasize the close communication between the brain and the body. She also referred to the body as the “subconscious mind” (e.g., what goes on in the mind is acted out in the body).

You may want to refer to Brain References—Brain-Body Communication for additional information.
