Free Workshop on Self-Healing and the Body-Mind Connection

Alison Shaw, an Arlington-based integrative nurse practitioner and developer of Bodymind Resourcing, is offering a free workshop on self-healing and the body-mind connection. Tapping the Wisdom and Power of Your Body-Mind Connection will take place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on May 15 at the Robbins Library, in Arlington.

Shaw says the workshop will present health as a function of the constant interplay between body and mind. “Symptoms and long-term health challenges can be signals of imbalances on all levels of our lives,” she says. “This practical and experiential workshop will help people learn how the body and mind work together to create illness and health, and how to identify and release the hidden patterns that keep us stuck in illness and pain.”

For more than 25 years, Shaw has guided people to uncover the roots of their health issues, using a blend of dialogue and guided imagery, body-centered counseling, expressive exercises, movement and hands-on bodywork. “I’m very excited to bring this method to more people through fun, eye-opening workshops like this one,” she says.

The Robbins Library is located at 700 Massachusetts Ave., Arlington.
