Meditation, Mindfulness, Mandalas, Pranayama:
Contemplative Practices for Office Practice & Self Care
Saturday, May 10th
8:30 am to 5:00 pm
The medicine of the 20th century was about the treatment of illness. The medicine of the 21st century is about wellness. As medical science has made strides in the detection and treatment of illness, we have reached a tipping point where the emphasis is upon wellness and living a fuller life to our personal best potential. There is a renewed respect for an interest in ancient healing systems, which are being reconfigured to create the integrative medicine of the future. The contemplative practices are guided by archetypes and myths, and the Neuroplastic mysteries of our complex physical reality. The presenter will outline the analytical and Neuroscientific aspects of these practices followed by experiential sessions to demonstrate the use of these methods for use in office practice and manage our own personal wellness program.
