Breath practices have been used since ancient times for physical, mental, and spiritual development. They can be used to raise energy of our mind-body-spirit, circulate the energy to remove blockages in our systems, and extend energy to others. We will present a sequence of mindful movements, breathing and attention trainings, for physical, emotional, and mental disorders including PTSD.
Dr. Brown will demonstrate and lead attendees through a sequence of mind-body practices as a group and then in small groups to experience the shift in consciousness, energy, and the sense of self and others.
