The Mind-Body Connection: Movement, Emotion and Calm
5th December @ 09:30 - 16:00 GMTGBP192
SPECIAL EVENT: Monday 5th December, London – Join Dr Andrew Morrice for an indepth look at the inextricable links between our emotional and physical lives. This course can be either a stand-alone learning experience or form part of a 2-day exploration along with ‘‘Food, Mood – and Sleep’ which is held the following day. Between them the two days cover all the key areas for maintaining overall health.
Why take this course
Getting our physical needs met healthily is just as important as ensuring that our innate emotional needs are met well, since our physical health impacts on our mental health and vice versa.
Even though our physical needs may appear obvious – a healthy diet, regular physical exercise etc – we know that most of the chronic diseases sweeping through the Western World are linked to “lifestyle”, indicating that many people are not actually meeting their physical needs, or developing their physical resources, in healthy balanced ways – despite the vast array of information available to them. Understanding just how inextricably linked the mind-body system is, gives us additional ways to help people quickly and effectively resolve many difficulties in life.
This course gives you the opportunity to look in more detail at the science behind the profound effects on mental health of ‘physical’ factors – such as movement and exercise, time in nature and real-time connection with others. It also looks at the many ways we can activate our innate capacity to find calm through our breath and attention, why these work and what it does for us physically.
