Online Workshop with Amelia Barili

The beginning of winter and the holiday season can feel daunting in these troubled times. Shorter hours of daylight and the challenges we are facing individually and as a community, can trigger in us states of anxiety and depression, a fear that things are getting worse and a sense of languishing and lack of purpose. In this retreat you will learn how to overcome those negative thoughts and emotions, build resilience and grow your inner resources.

Drawing from the wisdom healing traditions of Yoga and Qigong, and from the most recent findings of the Neuroscience of Wellbeing, Dr. Barili will teach you how to consciously foster deep relaxation, let go of traumatic experiences, and cultivate a calm strength to overcome any challenge that might arise in your life. Practicing this mind-body centered approach you will experience better physical and emotional health, restful sleep, improved digestion, and you will boost the functioning of you heart, lungs, kidneys, liver and immune system.
