Natural Awakenings Greater Boston - Rhode Island

Mind-Body Experiential Event Coming to Boston in May

Natural Awakenings will host a Mind-Body Experiential Event on May 31, at Arlington High School, in Arlington, including a viewing of the feature documentary film, The Connection, which reveals groundbreaking research by the world’s leading experts in mind-body medicine and true stories of recovery. The film screening will be followed by a panel discussion including both a doctor and patient profiled in the film. After the panel discussion, attendees can participate in workshops scheduled throughout the afternoon, experiencing a variety of mind-body techniques.

Natural Awakenings Publisher Maisie Raftery says, “This event is a great opportunity to experience many different mind-body practices all in one place in one day. We expect to have experts in the fields of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, meditation, massage, qigong, tai chi, biofeedback, hypnotherapy, yoga, laughter yoga, guided imagery, art and music therapy, and breath work, among others.

The idea for this event came from Raftery seeing The Connection at the Boston premiere in October. Her experience prompted the creation of a new Mind-Body Connection department in the magazine to educate readers on how they can improve their quality of life through mind-body connections. “The idea for the new department quickly grew to the concept of an experiential mind-body event,” says Raftery. “We couldn’t be more excited to offer this experience to our readers as well as to the amazing mind-body practitioners in the area.”
