Description

We are no longer taking online registrations for this workshop.

This workshop is for anyone who is experiencing prolonged discomfort from physical or emotional pain, or both. It is co-led by an orthopedic spine surgeon recognized for his groundbreaking work with chronic pain, a clinical psychologist whose work on the power of forgiveness has had a worldwide impact, and a professional dancer with expertise in rhythm and movement.

Together, David Hanscom, Frederic Luskin, and Babs Yohai present approaches that reconnect our minds with our bodies, and help us move past our pain. We explore how and why chronic pain emerges, how it is sustained by the development of neurological pathways, and how to bypass existing pain pathways by creating new ones.

Through writing, guided imagery, videos of patient success stories, sensorimotor exercises, sharing, energy work, play, and rhythm, we seek to free ourselves from pain. Additionally, those suffering from any chronic illness can benefit from improved coping skills learned in this workshop. Health-care professionals find strategies they can use with clients.
