The eyes record everything we encounter. However, formal education forces our eyes into ‘seeing’ a fixed two-dimensional view of the world which robs us and our brain of flexibility. This results in ‘box-thinking.’ Understanding the anatomy of the eyes and the connection to the thalamus and visual cortex helps us release the energy they have had to absorb. In so doing we reduce stress in the eyes, the brain and the entire body. Thurs-Sun, Aug 6-9, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Instructor: Etienne Peirsman. (29 CEUs, PDAs, CMEs)

Survival is the ultimate focus of our body’s systems in order for us to fulfill our life’s purpose and guarantee procreation/evolution. The heightened state of fight or flight causes the ‘stress cascade’. Understanding the brain as an electric system and understanding the nuclei that are involved with the stress cascade gives us the opportunity to release their static electricity - also known as trauma.

When treating sport and work related injuries, understanding the concept of the spine, innervating spinal segments, channel relationships and the role of vertebral fixations and facilitated segments contributing to musculoskeletal injury is crucial. It is imperative for the practitioner to understand that there is a segmental relationship with the spinal cord, the organs (zang fu) and the myofascial tissues that can support health or be adversely affected by their inherent neural and meridian interrelationship. When pathology exists in one area, all tissues associated along the neural pathway will be affected, not unlike the organ and channel relationship where pathology in one ultimately affects the other. Sat-Sun, Sept 19-20, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Instructor: Eric Raymond Buckley. (14 PDAs)

Yoga can help reduce stress, lower blood pressure and improve heart function according to the Mayo Clinic.

In this class simple postures will be deeply explored as a way for you to more fully experience being in your body. Mon, Sept 21-Nov 30, 6-7:15 p.m. (No class 11/11) Instructor: Fred Dowd.

Talking to people and telling them to change their thinking is simply no longer state-of-the-art treatment.

In this hands-on workshop you will learn simple yet profound client-centered tools that combine cognitive interventions with physical interventions derived from acupuncture, yoga, and other ancient systems of healing. Collectively, these methods are known as Energy Psychology. In this Level 1 workshop you will learn simple, yet profound client-centered tools that combine physical interventions - derived from acupuncture, yoga, and other ancient systems of healing - with cognitive interventions.
