Cultivating the Mind and Emotions for Health and Wellbeing

Sunday, 10/28 at 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Chinese health cultivation teachings usually start with the mind and emotions. This workshop will delve into the harm caused by unregulated emotions and explain, using both yangsheng (nourishment of life) teachings and modern research, how how practitioners and patients can transform them into positive mental states. In many cases, mental and emotional states play a greater role in health and wellbeing than any other factor, because without a level of emotional integration, it is impossible to truly care for ourselves. This workshop will delve into the harm caused by unregulated emotions and explain, using both yangsheng (nourishment of life) teachings and modern research, how practitioners and patients can transform them into positive mental states. It will then offer simple, practical ways to cultivate cooler, calmer, more centered, more connected, and more compassionate states.
