A Neurosurgeon Probes Wellness And Performance

Teacher: Ian Weinberg
Cost: 2 days’ accommodation + R250 surcharge
Dates: Friday 24 August 2018 - Sunday 26 August 2018

ian weinbergIn a series of talks and Mindfulness meditation sessions, we will explore the chemistry which mediates the effects of mind states on the body: psychoneuroimmunology or PNI. The talks and demonstrations will show that we can attain optimal wellness and performance by getting to know our temperament and personality traits; by being more present-minded; and through sensible, informed ways of living and behaving.
