Address the impact stress is having on your life.
Ultimate self-care involves a resilient response to life’s stressors. Stress can diminish us physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, causing suffering and illness. Meditation and mind-body practices offer an effective way to manage stress and transform it into creative energy.
This workshop addresses the challenge of making sustainable lifestyle changes and provides the scientific knowledge and skills to support those healthy changes. Integrative physician Susan B. Lord uses a small-group format to help you uncover personal issues that trigger your stress response.
- The science behind the stress response and how to elicit its antidote: the relaxation response
- A variety of simple mind-body modalities, including meditation, drawing, movement, and writing exercises to recognize and transform stress
