Free Body-Mind Workshops to Achieve Healing

Alison Shaw, integrative nurse practitioner and developer of Bodymind Resourcing, an innovative approach to body-mind medicine, is offering two free two-hour workshops entitled Tapping the Power of your Body-Mind Connection to Help Yourself Heal. The first takes place from 6 to 8 p.m., March 12, at Brookline Public Library-Coolidge Branch, in Brookline, and the other from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., March 31, at Robbins Library, in Arlington.

In this practical and experiential workshop, Shaw will teach how the body and mind work together to create illness and health. Participants will learn how to identify and release the hidden “bodymind patterns” that perpetuate physical and emotional dis-ease and keep them stuck in illness and pain.

“Just beneath conscious awareness, the body, emotions and thoughts are engaged in constant conversation, changing and affecting each other in every moment,” says Shaw. “Illness and health are a function of the interplay between the body and mind and symptoms can be signals of imbalance on all levels. We must address the body and mind together to achieve real healing.”

With more than 25 years as an integrative nurse practitioner in complimentary medicine and private practice, Shaw has developed Bodymind Resourcing, a unique approach that addresses the emotional and physical aspects of illness at the same time, a more effective process than can be achieved through medicine or psychotherapy alone. She is excited to bring this method to more people through this fun and eye opening workshop full of ideas and tools to increase the effectiveness of current health care approaches.
