Jan 30, 2015 08:45AM
Join leading authorities such as Congressman Tim Ryan, Sayer Ji of GreenMedinfo.com, and Dr. Sara Lazar of Harvard University about the medical research and evidence basis behind these practices. Lazar will discuss fascinating discoveries in the realm of neuroimaging techniques which are revealing the mechanisms by which yoga and meditation deliver their beneficial effects.
Yoga teachers and other mind-body health practitioners won’t want to miss this educational opportunity to learn about the most current research and evidence basis for healing pain with mind-body practices. Join leading experts for master classes and workshops on yoga, meditation, iRest, tai chi and more. Anyone interested in healing or recovering from pain will want to attend and experience for themselves the profound healing effects of the practices and therapies explored at the weekend event.
Donations and sponsorships for this event will enable veterans to attend for free. The Department of Veterans Affairs has launched a nationwide campaign called the "Opioid Safety Initiative", replacing the use of addictive narcotics with evidence-based best practices such as yoga and meditation. Throughout veterans’ hospitals nationwide, 16 percent of veterans are being medicated with addictive narcotics for the treatment of pain, while research is showing that mind-body practices are more effective at eliminating pain and trauma.
