- What’s wrong with mindfulness (AND what isn’t)
- Integrate mind and body through acupressure massage and Qigong and Taiji movements
- Packed with experiential exercises to use with your clients immediately
Imagine what it would be like for your clients to be free from anxiety, depression, trauma or pain. What if you could show your clients specific strategies to become more mindful and compassionate by immediately working with their concrete bodily experiences of themselves in the present moment?
This new workshop will be unlike any other mindfulness training you’ve received! Join experienced mindfulness presenter Robert Rosenbaum, PhD as he will give you an experiential packed workshop.
