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.
Learn how to bypass existing pain pathways that have been established in your nervous system by creating new ones. Take back control of your life using proven tools, including writing, sensorimotor exercises, sharing, energy work, play, and rhythm.
Guided by David Hanscom, a prominent spine surgeon recognized for his groundbreaking work with chronic pain; Fred Luskin, a professor of psychology who has worldwide acclaim for his insights on the power of forgiveness; and Babs Yohai, a professional dancer with expertise in rhythm and movement, you get solutions that reconnect your mind with your body to move past your pain.
The process will also benefit those suffering from a chronic illness, family members who must cope with the impact of disease, and health care professionals who want to implement these strategies in their practices.
