Trauma and chronic stress are more than just mental health issues—they are at the root of almost 80 percent of all chronic illnesses in our culture. This indicates the need for mental health professionals to look beyond the mind, and to explore the body and spirit with their clients.

This workshop is an introduction to the art and science of integrative mental health. It blends current research with the ancient practices of meditation, nutrition, prayer, and movement. You will leave with an increased awareness of the mind-body connection, along with practical skills to use with both your clients and yourself.
