Mind-Body-Spirit Pioneer, Dr. Joan Borysenko – September 14 in Bethesda
Join us for an afternoon of community and spirit as renowned scientist, best-selling author and spiritual teacher, Dr. Joan Borysenko engages us with “Embodied Spirituality: Ancient Wisdom Meets Modern Science”. Get empowered by interpersonal neurobiology and learn how we create our minds through our bodies and our relationships. Develop strategies to deepen your consciousness, health and bliss! Joan’s presentation is part of “Science & Spirituality: Awakening the Mind Body Connection”, a memorial tribute to scientific visionary, Dr. Candace B. Pert, whose groundbreaking research mapping the systemic distribution of informational molecules of emotion paved the way for a radical new paradigm of viewing the human being as a singular entity she called the “bodymind”. From her work, and that of a small group of other scientists and clinicians, the field of mind-body medicine was born. The program will include a chanting/meditation circle, holistic mini-expo and light refreshments. Tickets $49 advance, $59 door. Proceeds help support the non-profit Am Kolel Sanctuary Retreat Center – a charmingly rural venue for retreats and celebrations in upper Montgomery County.
