Health & Wellness: Eastern Practice in a Western World

Join us for a day-long workshop that includes mindfulness-based stress reduction, plant-based healing, partner qigong and tai chi, yoga, metta mindfulness music, and releasing your inner power.

Saturday, March 2, 2019 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

California Institute for Human Science

Karen Lim – Event Coordinator

Having retired from 26 years of teaching English at San Diego City College, Karen missed her passion for organizing professional development opportunities for faculty and staff. Many of her close colleagues did not have a chance to enjoy retirement due to illness. Determined to extend her longevity into the golden years, she took on a journey to find health and strength in body, mind and spirit. This day-long workshop that Karen created will take you through experiential activities to improve your overall well-being with veteran professionals who will share their expertise.

Topics will cover mindfulness-based stress reduction, plant-based healing, partner qigong and tai chi, yoga to help cancer patients, metta mindfulness music, and releasing your inner power. Living in constant stress can cause illness and disease. Learn to bring balance and calm to your whirling mind. Better sleep is a main concern for teens to elder adults; see how metta music can bring more relaxed brain waves. Shift your eating patterns to usher in health. Discover how to regain your power and accept your uniqueness.
