Spring Retreat: Positive Pathways

“Neurons that fire together, wire together.” Focusing on negative thoughts may contribute stress-related illnesses such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, chronic back pain, obesity and weakening of the immune system. Focusing on positive thoughts can lead to greater resilience in meeting the stresses of life.  
The retreat will include explanation of the neuro-science underlying the power of thoughts, guided meditations, writing exercises, and discussion. Please dress in loose, comfortable layers. Bring a pillow and either a yoga mat or thick blanket for meditation done on the floor. These activities can also be adapted to sitting in a chair.

Morning beverage bar and lunch are included.
