Commonly, we think of the mind and body as two separate things.
We think ‘I’ have a body, rather than I am my body.
As a result, we feel cut off from ourselves; alienated from our true nature.
But is this split-view of ourselves scientifically accurate?
Or might the two be more interconnected than our common sense tells us?
In this online conference, we’ll explore the exciting new field of mind-body psychotherapy.
You’ll learn how the mind affects us biologically, how what happens in the body influences the mind, and how to apply these cutting-edge insights to enhance your therapeutic work.
