Workshop

The Metamorphosis Lab

A Hero's Journey to Health

Sep 16 - Sep 21 2018 Rhinebeck, NY
Learn to decipher the messages of your symptoms and better understand your life’s meaning in this workshop with Ruediger Dahlke and Carol Greenhouse.

Kelly Noonan Gores in conversation with Ruediger Dahlke

Your life is trying to tell you something. It speaks in symptoms, chance events, symbols, and patterns. Learning life’s language can help you transform illness, resolve psychological issues, and take personal development to a new level.

When imbalances develop in your consciousness, they manifest in the body as symptoms. Guided by renowned European physician Ruediger Dahlke and his lead apprentice Carol Greenhouse, you learn to interpret your symptoms in order to restore your natural balance and improve your overall health. You learn to generate your own good health and change your life by deciphering your symptoms and better understanding your life’s meaning.

Plus, Dahlke works closely with special workshop guests—Kelly Noonan Gores, producer of the documentary Heal, and Stephen Kiesling, editor of Spirituality & Health magazine—on their real-life health issues, including back pain, weight gain, and aging issues to demonstrate how to heal them--and then works with participants on their health concerns, integrating new insights through meditation, image therapy, journaling, and breathwork.

You leave with a new perspective toward illness and a plan for wellness to implement when you return home. Helping professionals will learn techniques and information they can use with their clients.
