E01.     Holistic Stress Management for the 21st Century

Brian Luke Seaward, PhD

Holistic Stress Management (HSM) is so much more than taming the fight or flight response. It’s a dynamic approach to managing stress that combines the healing powers of the conscious and unconscious minds and calms the conflict between ego and soul. HSM applies effective coping and relaxation techniques that honor the integration of balance and harmony into the mind, body, spirit, and emotions. This workshop offers both ageless wisdom and experimental learning through guided mental imagery, poetry therapy/journal writing, energy medicine, music therapy, and meditation techniques for personal growth and professional development.

Healing Touch is a holistic, global, energy therapy that utilizes a unitary approach to health and healing. It draws upon the universal language and tenets of energy, integrality and relationship.

Indeed, it has been taught and utilized throughout the world.

Ron Wish MD

In addition to releasing restrictions to motion in the head and lower spine, Craniosacral Therapy (CST) helps resolve pain and heal dysfunctions throughout the body. A CST practitioner does this by sensing and modifying the rhythmic motion of the cerebrospinal fluid as it emanates from the core of the body. The essence of Craniosacral Therapy is to meld, listen, and follow. In this fun and practical session, you will begin to touch and heal others in a profoundly gentle way. Come join us!
