Kripalu and My Sutherland Memorial Lecture (not necessarily connected…and then again, maybe they are)

My Sutherland Memorial Lecture (which I just gave in Indianapolis last month) is now posted on my website. Click on the link or go to my website if you'd like to read it.

I am also delighted to be offering one 4-day workshop this year. Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in the gorgeous Berkshire mountains of western Massachusetts has invited me to teach, "Transformative Osteopathic Self-Care: Integrating Movement and Meditation Into Life."

As some of you know, I have devoted the past 5 years of my life to radically re-imagining the way I care for myself as I engage in a complicated dance with my health, well-being and metastatic breast cancer. I have devoted the past 33 years of my life to caring for others, and now that I have lived to tell the story, I'd like to share my insights with you and help you find your own path of deeply caring for yourself.

I welcome all people who yearn to care for themselves deeply. Whether you are a physician or other healthcare professional looking to care for yourself as well as you care for your patients and clients, or you're looking for ways to pass on what you learn to the people you care for, this workshop has something to offer you. You don't need a background in healthcare to attend; all you need is a body and a desire to explore listening to the necessity of the moment. 

Begins Sunday, Nov 9 at 7 pm  
Ends Thursday, Nov 13 at noon    

Explore the radical possibilities in health and well-being available when you combine the principles of Osteopathic treatment, the practices of Continuum Movement, and mindfulness meditation. I invite you to cultivate awareness of internal experience through breath, sound, meditation, and movement, integrating these practices into daily life.

Restore trust in the wisdom of your body as you allow yourself to fully express fluid movement and rest. Step outside your preconceived notions about your body and discover your inner resources for resilience, adaptability, and change. This workshop offers the tools you need to access this inner healing realm on your own.

This is the only course I will offer this year, so don't pass up this opportunity. I look forward to diving deep, exploring radical self-care, and engaging the movement and stillness of life and health with you.
