Course description

**Course is cancelled**
Transform stress, pain, and illness into a self-healing journey!
Dis-ease tells a story, not just about our cells and a diagnosis, but of ourselves and our lives. We’ll explore how biography becomes biology, and how listening to our life stories connects us to our authentic being. This 2-day course will integrate the study, practice and application of mindfulness and mind-body therapies. The focus of this weekend will be personal self-healing from an experiential context, which will serve as a foundation for using mind-body medicine as a tool in clinical practice. This course is open to students, NDs and health practitioners looking to integrate mindfulness-based practices, meditation, relaxation, stress reduction techniques, guided imagery, counseling and mind-body healing into clinical practice.
Learn mindfulness meditation, guided imagery, mind-body counseling and their clinical application!

Instructor: Paul Epstein, ND

Dr. Paul Epstein is a naturopathic physician, mind body therapist, mindfulness meditation teacher, speaker, workshop leader and author. His whole person relationship centered care approach integrates naturopathic principles and therapies with mind-body medicine. He uses mindful awareness and contemplative psychotherapy to guide patients on their self-healing journey. He graduated from NCNM, the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in 1984, where he did a residency in holistic medicine, stress and lifestyle counseling.

He has successfully advocated the clinical application and integration of mind-body-spirit therapies in health care for 30 years exploring the mind-body connection, how biography becomes biology, narrative medicine and the role of stress in health and disease. Paul was co-founder of the Israel Center for Mind-Body Medicine. He graduated from the Academy for Guided Imagery, completed the three-year training program for Community Dharma Meditation Leaders at the Spirit Rock Meditation Center, and has trained in the “internal family system model” of psychotherapy.
