Program Description

Embark upon your own path of illumination in this workshop with pioneers in Integrative Health, Dr. Richard P. Brown and Dr. Patricia Gerbarg, as they share a unique blend of advanced mind-body practices—breathing, tapping, movement, and sound healing. Slide and videoclip presentations highlight scientific breakthroughs and their humanitarian projects.

Learn techniques drawn from qigong, yoga, Buddhist meditation, Orthodox Christian monks, martial arts, and Open Focus Attention Training, designed to activate communication pathways between the mind and the body, raise energy levels, dissolve pain, enhance performance, reduce inflammation, and regulate mood.

Rounds of gentle movement, coherent breathing, energy moving and deep mediation are followed by interactive processes. A rarely taught aspect of yoga and qigong, breathing with pelvic muscle activation, enhances pelvic health and vitality.

Breath-Body-Mind Plus, a new expanded program, goes deeper into the practices and provides ample time to discuss how to use these techniques to address your personal goals.
